Office Manager and Chairside Assistant
At our small practice, we truly deliver one-to-one, patient-centered care. That means we not only remember each patient’s name, but all about their family, interests, and adventures, too! I enjoy getting to know those we care for, hearing about their lives, and developing strong relationships with them. Seeing their smiling faces arrive for their visits always makes me smile. As our office manager, I greet everyone when they arrive, answer any questions a parent or patient might have, process payments, and schedule appointments. And as the chairside assistant, I take orthodontic X-rays and impressions, and assist Dr. Fajen during patient procedures. I talk with the patients about what the doctor is doing, make sure they’re comfortable, and joke with them to keep them relaxed and distracted.
Away from the office, I love spending time with my family, especially my two grandsons, who are only four months apart in age! My husband and I have two daughters, and several dogs we refer to as our four-legged children. I enjoy camping, hunting, and working in my wood shop, where I build rustic wood furniture and accessories.
