Introducing My Staff
Part of providing the highest quality dental care is in selecting the most qualified and best suited staff for my patients needs. I have the privilege of working with a team who is knowledgeable, professional, and who make our patients feel welcome and comfortable by showing concern and a sense of humor! We all work together to identify our patients goals and help them become a reality.
Let me present my staff to you:
Melanie is the front line of our office. She is the friendly, compassionate voice on the phone when you call and is usually the first person to greet you at our office. From the first call to our office to the end of your visit she strives to make our patients experience as easy and pleasant as possible. Melanie keeps the front office running smoothly and is prepared to assume auxiliary roles when necessary. She is always ready to assist you with any questions regarding the practice, your treatment plan, scheduling appointments, insurance reimbursement, or to discuss any financial aspects of your dental care. Her philosophy is, being attentive to the needs of our patients comes first.
Melanie joined our "dental team" in 2008. She has a Medical Office Assitant/Transcription degree and worked in the health care field for 10 years prior to joining our office.
