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.
Rolanda, Dental Hygienest
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!
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.
Nancy, Receptionist & Accounts Payable
I love interacting with the patients when they come into the office. In addition to answering phones, I write custom treatment plans that the patients are comfortable with. I maintain ordering and relationships with suppliers and brand reps. I also create custom marketing collateral for the practice, including maintaining the website and social media.
I graduated from Bowling Green State University with a degree in Marketing and Event Planning. In my spare time, I enjoy taking hikes with my dog, cheering on Cleveland's sports teams, and painting.
