Mary jane

Office Manager

Mary jane has been with us since 1978, starting out as a dental assistant while helping out at the front desk. She advanced into the position of Office Manager in 1989, as a result of her tremendous knowledge of all aspects of the dental assisting and administrative issues in a dental office. She is the master organizer, keeping our office operations smoothly and our patients smiling. She is the ultimate multi-tasker and has the unique ability to remember the little things that are important to each of our patients.

She has personally seen three generations of families grow up through the years and takes an individual approach to each one and treats them as family. On a personal side, Mary jane has seen her own sister Susie contribute to our office as a hygiene assistant since 1992. It is very important to her to educate our patients, believing firmly that good oral health is a key component to a strong and healthy body. She has a strong commitment to seeing to the needs of every patient and works diligently to see that they are satisfied in every aspect of their visit.

In her free time, Mary jane loves spending time with her best friend and husband, Rick. They love to bike, cook and entertain. But more importantly, they just love being together in everything they do, they do it together.

She is committed to placing the needs of our patients first, as well as attending to the needs of our busy hygiene and dental departments. Her warm and caring manner is appreciated by all.
