Hello! As the operating room coordinator, it is my position to interact with all aspects of the hospital cases we see. I work with the parents from start to finish making sure it is a smooth process and answering all the questions and easing there concerns. My position allows for me to interact with all aspects of the dental office. I am one of the first smiling faces you see when you enter our office. My responsibilities include working with parents and insurance companies to make sure the lines of communication flow appropriately. I assist parents by explaining to them all of the financial options available and helping them to receive the full benefits of their plans.
As the Front Office Liaison, I have a great deal of diversity in my daily activities. I spend my days greeting patients, assisting with check-in, managing the daily schedule, and keeping the patient flow as smooth as possible. I also help manage and coordinate the Doctor’s schedules.
My primary goal is to maintain accurate insurance information by assisting parents and communicating with insurance companies. The accuracy of this information directly impacts the parents, the practice and the support for the care given.
Therefore, I strive to be as thorough as possible. I enjoy doing these types of duties and finding more efficient ways to organize information. I love being a part of this wonderful team!
I love pediatric dentistry because I get to work with children and caring parents. What keeps me fresh and motivates me, is that I know every day brings new opportunities for me to change someone’s life. My days are exciting and challenging in this profession. I enjoy being part of this team because I know the staff always lends a helping hand when I need it. Being an R.D.A. is truly something special. Being able to eliminate discomfort from a little child and being able to hear them say, “Look Mommy! My teeth are sparkling.” is what it is all about.
Hi. I provide quality dental care for the children of our practice. My educational background has helped me be confident in enthusiastically answering questions that parents might have in regard to their child’s needs. I am in charge of our Sterilization and Instrumentation Program, assuring that everything in the office is clean and safe for patient care. My favorite part of my position is being able to work with our timid, fearful young children. I like to take time to calm them and to make them comfortable as they climb onto our dental chairs. I try to always treat them as I would my own child, offering a big smile and warm concern. I thoroughly enjoy working with the children that have disabilities; it has become a very fulfilling part of my daily life. Being part of this office is a very rewarding experience. It makes me wake up every morning with a smile.
