My name is Amanda Black and I have been a dental assistant since 1997. I attended the Paul C. Hayes Technical program for assisting in 1999. I have been with Dr. Thompson since 2006. Recently I was accepted to Ohio State University for their Expanded Functions Duties Assisting program and completed it in August 2009 earning my EFDA license.

I live in Blacklick with my husband Tim and four beautiful children, Emily, Madilyne, Taylor and Cooper. I love my career and people I work with and enjoy being part of Grandview Dental Care.
