Scheduling and Financial Coordinator

I have been working in dentistry for 5 years and I love it! My duties at Willow Bend Orthodontics include financial plans, insurance, scheduling, and preparing correspondence. My favorite part of orthodontics is the before and after. I love seeing the end result of a smile makeover and how happy it makes the patient. Other than work, I enjoy spending time with my amazing husband, my sweet little daughter, and our Boston terrier Lucy. I also enjoy photography, reading, and tennis.
