Suzan is usually the person you will talk to when calling. She handles the majority of our phone calls, and also takes care of all the appointments and scheduling for our patients.

She is in charge of our patients’ accounts, which includes billing, collections, and insurance claims. Suzan deals with insurance companies on a daily basis, and has a lot of knowledge in that department. If you ever have an insurance question answered, she’s the one to talk to. Suzan’s 34 years of experience in all aspects of dentistry such as Registered Dental Assistant, Surgical Assistant, Insurance Coordinator, and Office Manager make her invaluable when it comes to helping patients understand their treatment options. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her two granddaughters.
