Practice Manager and Financial/Insurance Coordinator
I am passionate about our patients. The goal at Riverbend Oral Surgery is to provide a comfortable and nurturing atmosphere for our patients. It's important to take the time to listen to a patient's apprehensions and help in anyway to make their day a better day and ease there concerns. I am a patient advocate and enjoy helping patients navigate dental insurance policies or discuss other financial stressors. My goal is to maximize patient's insurance benefits and lower their out of pocket expenses. It's exciting to have the opportunity to be part of a new practice from inception and help naviagate the trials and tribulations of starting a new business. Our staff is dedicated to oral health and providing exceptional care to our patients and the greater Chattanooga community. The team at Riverbend Oral Surgery is lead by a talented oral surgeon who is a champion for patient care.
I was born and raised in Shelton, Connecticut. I moved to Chattanooga 10 years ago to complete my education. My favorite past time is cooking for friends and family. If I'm not at work you can find me in my garden or lounging on the porch with my sweetie and our pup Otis. I also enjoy volunteering my time at Scenic City Recycling and take part in their mission of helping the earth without the hassle!
Come visit us at Riverbend Oral Surgery, we look forward to meeting you!
I love working with and getting to know new people every day, giving each a pleasant and personable experience in our office. It’s rewarding to see a patient come in feeling unhappy about their oral health and leave with a healthy new smile!
I work in the clinic, setting-up rooms, seating patients, and preparing them for their procedures. Working chairside, I assist Dr. Felts as he cares for our patient and, when we’re finished, I offer post-op instructions and make sure our patient is pleased with what we’ve done.
I’m a Chattanooga native and graduated from East Hamilton High School. My free time is spent with my Golden Retriever, Aspen: we like going to Greenway and to hike and swim. I also enjoy being on the lake, riding four-wheelers, and traveling – especially if there is a beach!
I love getting to interact with patients, from initially meeting them and getting to know them through the process of the exam to being chairside during surgery. I love comforting patients and putting them at ease. I attended Chattanooga State and have been a Surgical Dental Assistant in Chattanooga for 24 years. I am very passionate about my job and love what I do!
When I am not at my wonderful job, I love to spend time with my husband, Joey, two daughters, Raven and Gracyn and two dogs Cooper and Charley. I enjoy wood working and love to travel!
