in her spare time.
This is what she has to say about working
for Pediatric Dental Center of Avon:
"Working for Dr. Cosgrove is rewarding
and inspirational. She incorporates a perfect balance of talent
and skill that helps children gain confidence and feel safe
in the dental office. For that small group of patients that
comes in feeling frightened, they all leave feeling reassured
that the dentist can be a trusted, non-threatening person.
I love to see our patients happy about coming here. That's
the way it should be."
