Meet Our Team
Our patients are simply the best. It’s a pleasure to see them coming through the doors and hear the latest news about their families. I’ve been with the practice since 2001, so many patients are now good friends. I always enjoy meeting new people, too! In addition to welcoming and checking in patients, I handle insurance matters and collections.
As for my personal life, I’ve been married for more than 30 years to my husband Sam. We have three wonderful children. I enjoy being with my family, scrapbooking, hockey, and traveling.
Working with each patient, and getting to know about their life and interests, helps me find the best ways to ensure they have a wonderful experience here. I clean patients’ teeth, take dental X-rays, and use an intraoral camera to look in the mouth for signs of problems, and I educate patients. Teaching people why it’s important to keep their mouth healthy, and how to do it, is my passion. I love seeing healthy bodies and smiles!
Outside work, I enjoy hiking in the parks with Jeff, my husband, and Kona, our dog. I’m currently learning how to golf and ski, as well.
It’s a wonderful feeling when a patients finish their visit and they’re smiling and happy. Because we provide only painless dental care, even the most fearful patient soon learns that a visit here is nothing to worry about. I’m our main dental assistant, which keeps me busy. I prepare our operatories for dental procedures, then sit chairside, to assist Dr. Beckman and support the patient.
Being with my family outside of work is a priority for me. I also enjoy playing sports, traveling, and exercise, and I love shopping!
