She’s on the job to make sure you’re all set for seeing Dr. Riddle, the Dental Assistant, and the Dental Hygienist. She’ll also take care of verifying and filing your insurance paperwork so you can just relax in the waiting room and watch a little TV or read a magazine before your appointment. She also schedules appointments, creates patient files, answers all dental questions, and prepares the daily patient charts for the staff. All this while answering a multi-line phone system and keeping the waiting room and dental office organized, stocked and in perfect working order.

Be sure to stop by during March Madness, that’s her favorite time at the office and she looks forward to it each year.
