Our staff has humbly requested not to participate in a glamour photo shoot to be included on our website or newsletter. I accepted the request, and will brag on the beauty that is our personnel anyway. I am gifted indeed to share our service with folks who share a vision. For all we do, our guiding value is: "Be the Best Place to work and the Best Place to come as a patient."
Barbara has now supported our practice for nearly 30 years. As you encounter Barb over the phone, at the front desk or in the clinical zone, you will quickly recognize the ease she lends to your visit, and the heart she brings to ensure your comfort and understanding. Barb "has my back", and yours; nary a decision goes by that she hasn't considered all angles and perspectives, keeping our rudder on course.
Deb recently celebrated 25 years on board. Deb has been our engine room, supplying a vast reserve of energy in a now mostly-behind-the-scenes role as safety net and project manager. Deb lends a softness and steely strength to the volumes of administrative services that keep your records flowing with the tide, rather than against it.
Robin brings over 25 years of clinical support experience to her role, established and expanded over the last 10 years with us, as the skill-filled extra hands in the clinical setting. Robin's gentle tending and clinical confidence show up as a smooth and seamless delivery of many of our expanded functions. Always on the lookout for your extra needs, Robin is as quick with a comfort pillow and hot towel as she is with a tender hand to hold or word of encouragement as the vessel that holds your plans for treatment.
Jean has become the voice and face of our practice quickly and seamlessly over the last several years (10+). In the astounding way that is Jean's way in life, nothing escapes her vigilance to holding our direction and pace. Jean brings an appreciation of economics, sure. However, her "antennae" for many voices and many choices coupled with a radar quality of information gathering and sharing has provided a bottomless reserve for tracking and pointing the practice towards our goals. Jean is our GPS with a conscience and heart-borne integrity.
Becca Hi, I'm the "new" Dental Hygienist, I officially started in January 2016. Although I did work a few days in the last few months of 2015 as a temporary hygienist. I started my career in dentistry when I was 18 years old, working as a chairside assistant. Fast forward to today and I have furthered my education and knowledge in the dental hygiene world. I'm very passionate about what I do and for me it's not "just a cleaning", it is an opportunity for an educational, loving experience for all the patients I see. My certification in Reiki Healing brings an added dimension to my skills in co-creating the ideal path to your sustainable dental wellness. Your wellbeing is what I care about most! In my spare time, I love to travel and enjoy the outdoors (like fishing and hiking). I am very blessed to have found such a wonderful fit in my career and am excited to share this journey with all of Dr. Drewyer's patients.
