Front Office Receptionist and Hygiene Scheduling Coordinator
“Other than meeting new people in this ‘family environment,’ the thing I enjoy most about my job is working with these doctors because I love the way they change people’s lives and smiles for the better.”
Angela has been with our practice since 2016 and is likely the first person you will meet either greeting you in our waiting room or over the phone. Her “people skills” and genuine desire to make others feel welcome and comfortable make a great match for her front office position.
Angela and her husband have three sons, two of which are in college and one soon to be married. She stays busy with her son’s and with their many pets.
“I help our patients understand quality dentistry, and I educate each patient on their insurance to help create a patient base with a better understanding of reimbursements for a non-network/fee for service dental practice. I love working for these doctors because I respect the quality of work delivered to our patients.”
Tricia rejoined our practice in 2016 as our front office business manager after retiring from her career in medical imaging. She began her dental career with Chris in 1992 and was his dental assistant for 16 years. Tricia’s vast chairside and lab experience is invaluable when discussing treatment planning with our patients. In addition to patient education, Tricia works with our patients to maximize insurance benefits and payment options when scheduling.
When not working, Tricia stays busy with her teenage son's New Diana High School Baseball team, trying to teach Ethan how to drive as well as traveling in the summer with his T.H.A. Stix baseball team.
Registered Dental Assistant, Clinical Coordinator
“Each patient and each case are unique. I love the interaction I have on a daily basis with our patients. We have the BEST patients and I feel so lucky to work with them and help make their experience more enjoyable.”
Karla joined our practice in 2012 and worked as Chris’s lead dental assistant until late 2018. She is now the Clinical Coordinator and she oversees everything regarding the back office (clinical) aspect of our practice. Karla is bi-lingual in English and Spanish and that is a huge asset in the office. The thing Karla most enjoys about her work is being involved with all the different types of cases in the office from routine to full mouth restorations.
Karla and her husband are the parents of a young son and daughter. She stays busy with her son’s football and basketball activities and she enjoys the outdoors and going to the gym.
