After you hear the lovely way she pronounces your name, you will not be surprised to learn that Dental Assistant, Shirnette Emerson sings in her choir. Coming from Jamaica, West Indies, Shirnette was originally interested in nursing, but her career has been in the dental field since 1998. She was drawn to Prosthodontics because it drew on elements of both dentistry and nursing. Shirnette enjoys the laid back nature of working for Dr. Berne and admires the way he takes the time to explain every step to a new patient. Family, Church and Football (Atlanta Falcons, please and thank you) fill the hours not at the office.
