Receptionist, Front Desk
I love working with such gentle, kind, experienced dentists and an amazing team. We all believe we’re here to help others so we make patients’ needs and comfort a priority! I greet and check in patients, check insurances and consent forms, and accept payments. I also handle calls, schedule visits, and confirm appointments. Additionally, I’m a Certified Dental Assistant and help the treatment coordinator when needed.
In my spare time, I enjoy watching movies, going to the beach, and reading true crime and Christine Freehand books. I recently adopted a puppy and I love her to death!
Registered Dental Assistant
I am happiest when a patient smiles at the end of a procedure and thanks us for making it pain- and stress-free! Our doctors and my coworkers are skilled caregivers. We want patients to feel safe, comfortable, and at home in our office. I work chairside in the clinic, assisting the doctors during different treatments and procedures, while supporting our patient. I also provide a lot of home care education, encouraging everyone to keep their smiles healthy and clean! I am a Registered Dental Assistant and have multiple certifications, as well as a Bachelor’s degree.
Outside of work, I love spending time with my husband, kids, and our friends. I like outdoor activities, helping others, and listening to music.
I love working closely with my teammates and our doctors. It’s rewarding to be part of helping our community improve their oral health and develop great smiles! Our practice feels like a big, welcoming family and our patients feel right at home with us. I handle billing processes for our medical patients who are enrolled in our BCHF program. I also answer the phones and schedule appointments.
Most of my free time is spent with my family and friends and playing with my puppy, Chewy.
It’s a pleasure to support our doctors and incredible staff as we strive to provide the best dental experience to each patient. We serve a wonderful community and I’m proud to be part of helping my neighbors improve their smiles’ health. I oversee the daily operations of our practice. In addition to hiring, staff development, and other HR duties, I oversee the office financial health. I’m also involved with strategic planning, goal setting, and implementing and monitoring Dr. V’s vision for the practice. I’m a Registered Medical Assistant, Registered Phlebotomist, and have a Master’s degree in Public Health.
I enjoy working in the medical field and also enjoy my time away from the office. I like going to the gym, spending time with my doggies, playing video games, and art.
I love meeting new people, making sure they’re comfortable with our practice, and building lasting relationships. When I see someone get excited about caring for the smile, and they say they’re looking forward to coming back, I know we’re providing the best experience! I work in the clinic, where I make sure we’re well coordinated so everything runs smoothly. It’s important we offer a stress-free environment for our patients: taking care of one’s smile should be enjoyed!
Much of my time off is spend with my grandkids: we adore sharing adventures, especially going to the beach! I love, truly love, being a grandmother.
