The Woman Behind dentassist

Lisa Saiia was the first dental assisting ROP graduate in California in 1973 during the days of no gloves, gowns, masks or protective eyewear. Times have changed and so has the evolution of her company dentassist. In 1982 she launched a temporary and permanent placement service specializing in dentistry in Northern California. She offered the first AIDS/HIV conference for dentistry in 1983, the first Women in Dentistry conference in the nation, celebrating the contributions of women in the profession and address women’s healthcare issues. She educates and instructs practices in the area of OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens, and certifies Dental Assistants in Infection Control. Her passion for dentistry, love for research and boundless energy allows her to tap into her creativity, setting trends, writing curriculum, developing unique topics for speaking engagements.

Lisa was awarded the “Business Woman of the Year”, known as “The Wise Woman Award” in 2010 for her enthusiasm in assisting dental professionals to achieve success, her dedicated disaster relief volunteer work with the American Red Cross and success as a business woman. Outside of dentistry you may cross her path trekking in the mountains gathering inspiration for another dental venture.
