- DENTAL ASSISTANT I-

Our founding promise to the community is as valid today as it was over a century ago: we will care for all children in our region, regardless of the families' ability to pay. Together, we deliver superior patient care, advance new discoveries and treatments through pediatric research, and serve as the pediatric and adolescent, academic medical center for Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho - the largest region of any children's hospital in the country.

In 2018, U.S. News & World Report once again ranked Seattle Children's among the nation's best children's hospitals - for the 26th year in a row. We received national rankings in all 10 specialty areas evaluated by U.S. News & World Report, and are honored to be the only pediatric medical center in Washington to be ranked.

As a Magnet designated institution, we recognize the importance of hiring and developing great talent to provide best-in-class care to the patients and families we serve. Our organizational DNA takes form in our core values: Compassion, Excellence, Integrity, Collaboration, Equity and Innovation. Whether it's delivering frontline care to our patients in a kind and caring way, practicing the highest standards of quality and safety or being relentlessly curious as we work towards eradicating childhood diseases, these values are the fabric of our culture and community.

Assist in the delivery of pediatric dental care. Apply the knowledge and skill necessary to provide appropriate interactions with staff, patients and families of all ages.

About Seattle Children's Hospital

At Seattle Children's, we offer our patients the support of an entire medical center. Complex spine cases usually involve bigger, more severe curves that are more difficult to correct and that affect the spinal cord and lungs. In caring for children with these more difficult cases, we often like to enlist the services of a pediatric pulmonary specialist and a neurosurgeon. Our surgical spinal cord monitoring team leads the country in developing new techniques for making back surgery safer. Recently we have developed advances in spinal cord monitoring and treatment of scoliosis in very young children (infantile scoliosis).
