PattyOffice Manager
Office Manager
During her 35 years at the office, Patty has proven to be an integral part of our team. She's served in many capacities, including handling insurance and working the front desk. She's been our office manager for the past 20 years, and is responsible for all the administrative tasks involved in running a busy dental practice. When she's not talking to insurance companies or coordinating financial arrangements, she's doing her best not to mother her four young adult children.


Merrick Dental Hygienist Beth

Beth keeps up to date on the latest advances in dental hygiene by making continuing education courses a priority. She's a certified implant hygienist, and also holds certification in nitrous oxide sedation, and infiltration anesthesia. All that knowledge and skill makes her expertly equipped to be active in and knowledgeable about the treatment of her patients. When she's not scaling and root planning, Beth enjoys skiing, camping, and gardening.
