Jacob Slominski

Office Administrator

Jake is our new social media expert and is training to be our medical device reprocessing (MDR) technician. He is currently attending Nelson High School and works here part time.

When he is not in class or studying, he plays on the Nelson football team as a running back, and has plans to try out for the Burlington Stampeders this summer. Jake also plays rep hockey and currently plays for the Burlington Raiders on the defensive line.

Jake decided to join our ADH family because he is interested in helping people, and is wondering if a  medical or dental career may be in his future. 

Jake is on his way to learning  valuable lessons about the dental field, and about being an entrepreneur. He is already making plans towards his future endeavors. 

We are so pleased to mentor Jake in his first job and we are excited to have him join our team!
