Patient and Insurance Coordinator

Years of Experience:
I’ve been working in dentistry since 1998.

When did you join this team:
May 2021

Why did you choose the dental field, and what do you enjoy the most about dentistry?
I feel that oral health is a cornerstone of mental and physical well being for everyone, and I enjoy the fact that I can help people achieve this in their lives.

What is your philosophy in patient care, and what makes you different?
Making the patient feel welcome and part of a family is my main priority. Keeping the relationship with patients as friendly as possible goes a long way towards keeping their trust. From the moment they check in to going over treatments and procedures to follow ups and reminders, it’s all about that patient/practice bond.

What hobbies and activities do you enjoy?
I enjoy gardening and spending time with family on the weekends. I love diamond art and driving my classic car whenever the weather allows.

When you were 10 years old, what did you hope to be doing as an adult?
I wanted to get into beauty (hairstyles) since I was very young. I worked in that profession for some time before I decided I wanted to transition into dentistry.

What two radio stations do you listen to in the car the most?
I listen to 97.1. I am a classic rock girl at heart!

Favorite quote:
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those that matter don’t mind.”
