I started working with Dr. Bana in 2004 and have almost 30 years of experience in the dental field. I assist Dr. Bana with dental implants and other patient procedures, as well as make each patient feel comfortable and welcome in our office. I truly enjoy every aspect of my job, especially working directly with our patients. At home, I love spending time with my husband and son. We like to go traveling together, and of course, I enjoy shopping.
I’ve been part of Dr. Bana’s practice for 3 years now. I started as Front desk and transitioned into Insurance Coordinator. My goal is to maximize patients insurance benefits so that they can start of the treatment that they need and want. On my time off, I love to work out and spend time with my family and granddaughter.
As a hygienist, my duties are to welcome patients into our treatment areas, take X-rays and pictures, and do an oral examination, followed by a gentle yet thorough cleaning. The most important aspect of my job is educating patients on how to improve their oral health for teeth that last a lifetime. I have worked with Dr. Bana for over ten years and I have always felt like a member of his family. Most of my leisure time is spent with my family, either watching movies, playing board games, or dining out.
I help to make our office run smoothly by ensuring all our accounting needs are met. Even though I don’t get to interact with patients as much as the other team members, I still enjoy hearing stories about patients that are really happy with the services they’ve received and how pleasant their time with us was. I enjoy spending time with my family when I’m not in the office. We enjoy boating with friends, our family, and our dog, Max, as well.
