Meet the Team

  Front office staff

The staff members at my office are exceptional and they all have incredible memories about our patients.

When you call, you will usually be speaking to either Angela or MaryAnn. They have been with me for many years and are very comfortable dealing with all of your questions about emergencies, insurance, financing, scheduling, privacy, and recare maintenance. Sometimes you will be speaking to Denise, my wife, who is there every morning. Those three people are all there for you, to help coordinate your family’s path to oral health. We try to welcome new patients as easily as possible. With our website, you can do many clerical things online. You can request an appointment, refer a friend, or print out new patient forms in the comfort of your own home and fill them out with all of your medical information close by. Of course, all of these things can be done in person, if you prefer.

My hygiene department includes three registered dental hygienists: Sarah, Gina and Christina (Spanish bilingual). We have a straight forward way of treating periodontal disease. We use radiographs, gum measurements, and clinical exam to accurately diagnose health status. Some patients are healthy and simply need a prophylaxis. For patients with periodontal disease, we do cleanings with anesthetic. We offer several ways to make you comfortable. After a month of improved maintenance, we re-evaluate and decide if any further treatment is indicated, or we setup a very important schedule of periodic maintenance visits that are customized to each patient’s health status.

My chairside assistants are Judy and Becky. Judy has been my go-to person for many years and can often remind me of seemingly any detail about our equipment, supplies and storage. Becky has been in the field for over thirty years and has wonderful enthusiasm for restorative dentistry. Both assistants have completed certification by the state of Kansas for supragingival scaling. They are both a superior pleasure for me to spend 32 hours a week working side by side.

Patients tell me every day of my life how special my staff are and that they make them feel like family members. Of course, I feel the same way. These eight people are my daytime family. Feel free to provide feedback to any staff member you feel most comfortable talking to. Welcome!
