Debbie – Business Administrator
I am Debbie, the business administrator for the practice. I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in computer programming and worked for many years in the banking/computer systems industry. I have been married for 40 years; have three incredibly talented children, and soon will have three grandchildren. I attend church each week. I enjoy crocheting, sewing, reading and playing board and iPad games.
I have been involved in dentistry since I took a 3 month course in dental assisting in 1978. A few years later, I discovered that while I enjoy my interaction with patients in the office, my real passion was in the business aspects of the practice. I oversee all the non-clinical aspects of the office including patient and insurance billing, payments and personnel matters. I love my job because I am a numbers person who enjoys making sure everything is correct.
I believe in volunteering my time and talents and participated in the 2014 Alaska Mission of Mercy in Anchorage. In 2002 I volunteered to work as a dental assistant at the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City. It was a fabulous experience interacting with athletes and coaches from all over the world.
I am also a Jamberry Nails consultant using my business as a fundraiser to help organizations and individuals raise money for charitable purposes. If you have a cause you are passionate about, give me a call! Let’s raise some money!
