Scheduling Coordinator and Receptionist
I am the first smiling face you see when you walk through our door. Meeting new patients and their families, welcoming them to our practice, and then watching them progress through treatment and seeing their excitement at their new smile: I love all these things. I’m in charge answering our phones,maintaining our schedule and setting appointments, making sure that we have plenty of time with each patient. My husband and I live in Plymouth and enjoy spending time with our children and grandchildren. During the summer months, you will find me boating on the nearby ponds. I also have a passion for interior design and helping others.
I love being there when our patients start to notice their smile changing and when Dr. Ryan tells them how much longer they'll be in braces. This gives them a time frame to look forward to and you can see, and feel, their excitement building. The best day, of course, is when the braces come off and they see their incredible new smile for the first time. It's so rewarding to be part of making that smile happen! I greet our patients when they arrive and am always checking to make sure that they're comfortable while being treated. I also take impressions, X-rays, and photos, as well as pour models for the lab. Oh, and I help our doctor keep the office clean and sanitized, too.
New Patient Coordinator
Being able to meet, and help, so many amazing people is very rewarding. I love our patients, and getting to know them as they go through orthodontics, is great. Because treatment happens over an extended period of time, and we see patients about once a month, we really get to learn about them as people. It's so much fun to hear about their lives and interests, and they're always sharing something interesting. I greet our new patients and work with patients and parents to figure out financial arrangements and scheduling. I have been in the dental industry since 2002. Away from work, I enjoy spending time with my husband Ed and our two children, Blake and Chase. We enjoy the beach and movie nights.
Interacting with our patients is my favorite part of my work day. They're all so unique and interesting, and they're so excited about getting new smiles! Seeing the end result, when treatment is completed, and the patients sees that their hard work has paid off, fills me with happiness, and I'm grinning right along with them. I work closely with Dr. Ryan, doing routine maintenance with braces and appliances. I also insert and remove appliances, take photos, impressions, and X-rays, and offer patient education. My husband, kids, and I live on Cape Cod, where I was born and raised. We have a black Lab mix, named Buddy, and two cats, BU and Shaddi. I love being outside, especially with my family, whether we're hiking, boating, or fishing.
It’s incredible to witness how excited patients are when they’re starting treatment and then seeing them progress and their new smiles develop. The best day is, of course, debanding day. I love seeing their big, beautiful new smiles! Being a part of their transformation is very fulfilling and I am glad that I get to help our amazing patients. My work duties include preparing patients for braces, changing the colors on the braces, answering questions from our parents and patients and of course taking braces off when you are finished. Outside of work, I enjoy vacationing with my family,crafts and running.
Scheduling Coordinator and Receptionist
Meeting and getting to know our patients and their families is the best part of my job. Because treatment happens over an extended period of time, we really get to learn so much about each family. I am one of the first faces you see when you enter the office, answer the phones and schedule your next appointment. I live in Plymouth with my husband and children, our dog Brooklyn and our cat Oreo. I enjoy spending time with my kids, hanging out on the beach in the summer and relaxing with my family and friends.
