Rose - Office Manager

RoseRose came to the practice in 1975 as a dental assistant, and has also worked at the reception desk. Since 1994 she has managed the business office for the practice.

"Since 1975 it has been my privilege and pleasure to work with this team of dentists. They are talented professionals and they are committed to providing the best care possible to their patients. The doctors attend many hours of continuing education each year. They inspire a high level of trust and loyalty in both their patients and their staff. We are now treating the third generation in many of our patients' families and many on our staff have been with the practice for at least 15 years or more. So if you like to see familiar faces when you come to the dentist, this is the place for you." Rose
