Doreen – Office Manager
My work here involves helping to make each patient visit an easy and pleasurable experience. A big part of this includes scheduling appointments and treatments, as well as taking care of the day-to-day office business so everything here keeps moving smoothly. Dr. Billings is passionate about dentistry in a way that is inspiring and contagious to all of us. She is also constantly learning new technology in order to improve the quality of care our patients receive. It drives everyone here to do what they can to provide the best patient experience possible. My teammates and I have fun working together and always enjoy getting to know our patients. In my personal life, my wonderful husband and I have been married for 32 years. We have three sons, two daughters-in-law, and three precious grandchildren. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, antiquing, and everything about arts and crafts.
Stephanie – Financial Coordinator
I have been in dentistry for 26 years. Since I began I have learned so much and have had the pleasure of meeting many wonderful people, including patients and coworkers. I first began my career as a dental assistant and have gradually moved to the administrative part of the dental field. I enjoy working with people. It is an important goal of mine to help patients understand their dental needs as well as their dental benefits. I joined Dr Billings in the spring of 2013 and look forward to meeting all of her wonderful patients. I enjoy spending time with my family, camping, and going to the beach.
Nick – Registered Dental Hygienist
It is satisfying to be able to make such a noticeably positive difference in someone’s oral well-being over the course of a single visit. As a hygienist, not only do I get to meet new people and learn a lot about them every day, I also get to catch up with those that have been coming to the practice for years. The team environment Dr. Billings creates really shows through to our patients. I believe it is one of the things that really permits her to speak so easily and openly with patients about their treatments. In my personal life, I am newly married. We both enjoy working in the medical field. My wife is currently preparing for nursing school. Besides dentistry, I also enjoy travel, history, movies, television, and walking my dog.
Sam – Registered Dental Hygienist
I am really lucky because I get to do what I love for a living, which is helping patients learn to take care of their smiles. Even more, I get to do it in a relaxed, fun environment, filled with people I enjoy seeing every day. We all work together really well. I love to work with Dr. Billings; the conservative approach to treatment she has adopted is one that I really believe in. The way she treats the patients and each one of us really makes us feel like a family. Away from work, I always love spending time with my family. I also enjoy gardening and cooking.
Cindi – Registered Dental Assistant
Since 1997, my work here consists of ensuring patient comfort during treatment, assisting Dr. Billings with restorative procedures, and providing home care information. It is gratifying and something really special when you get to see a person smile who was previously too self-conscious to do so. It really reinforces the importance of what the team has an opportunity to do for patients. Dr. Billings treats all of her patients like family. She listens to them to understand their dental needs, wants, and concerns. It is a vital part of what we know we have to do to make the patient experience here as good as it can be. I am happily married with three children and three dogs. Cooking and camping with family and friends are by far my favorite things to do.
Jodie – Registered Dental Assistant
I like people, so the best part of my job is just getting to know each patient and making their experience here perfectly comfortable, relaxed, and pleasant. Performing as chairside assistant for Dr. Billings during restorative treatments allows me to meet a lot of different people and use a lot of skills. Because I get to see Dr. Billings at work interacting with each patient, I am able to observe the easy rapport she establishes, the way she puts everyone at ease, and her emphasis on keeping them informed and active in the decision-making process. I have been in the field now for more than 20 years and it is rewarding to work at a practice that feels so warm and welcoming, where the staff and patients are treated as the individuals they are. Away from work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our three girls. It is great to watch them play sports. I also love getting together with friends when I can.
