I have been a pediatric dental assistant, X-ray technician, appointment coordinator, receptionist, Dental biller and tracer,  insurance coordinator, general treatment coordinator, specialty coordinator, assistant office manager, and last but not least my most recent goal Dental Office Manager. My ambition has been my drive, loving and conquering every aspect of the Dental world! and my passion for dentistry and customer service has been my fuel!
