Erin Salas

As one of our registered dental assistants, I work with Dr. Akavan . She is a great teacher and she takes pride in her work. It’s fun to work for a female doctor who is smart and educated in this field. We have fun contests and cool office shirts, and you can always be sure we are treating you like family. I love to talk with our patients and see the transformation of their smiles.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending quality time with my husband and our children, traveling, shopping, and racing cars!

I am a registered dental assistant here at Dr. Akavan’s office. I have been working with Dr. Akavan for 8 years. I love coming into the office and treating our patients like one big happy family. I have learned a lot from Dr. Akavan, and seeing our patients leave our office with a smile makes my days here amazing. Here at Dr. Akavan’s office the patient always comes first.

When I am not in the office I spend my time with my husband, Al. We are expecting twins so my days will be filled with lots of more love and happiness.
