Broadway Dental's Translator Enjoys Bringing Sonrisas (Smiles)

03.14.11

DENISON—In advance of their major remodel, Broadway Dental hired a new full-time translator to assist in communications with their Spanish-speaking patients. Fatima Lupian was brought on in August to help make appointments, explain procedures and provide warm hospitality.

Lupian, who has lived in Denison for nine years, joined Broadway Dental in August after graduating from Western Iowa Tech with a degree in Business Administration, but the position has sparked her interest in dentistry.

Lupian is considering returning to school someday in hopes of becoming a dental hygienist. "It's been exciting to learn about dentistry, which I didn't know much about before I started," Lupian said. "I really like helping patients feel comfortable and helping them receive good dental care."
