Office Manager

Kathy, Office Manager

Kathy graduated from Mississippi Gulf Coast Junior College with a degree in dental assisting and attended University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill to complete the course work to facilitate earning her CDA status. Still, Kathy is much more than our office manager. She provides the initial welcome to all incoming patients. She started as a certified dental assistant and has held her current position for 17 years. Her concern for our patients is evident in the relationships that have been formed throughout several generations of patrons. Not only does she keep the wait time down for clients, but she helps them navigate the ever-changing insurance environment. She also sets up appointments both for clients and staff. Kathy also provides a sympathetic ear to all she meets and problem-solves through any emergency. She considers all those who come into the office for treatment as members of her extended family. Kathy and her husband of over 30 years, Jim, have a daughter who now attends veterinary medicine school at MSU. Their son works for Park University in international student studies. He and their daughter-in-law live in Parkville, Missouri. Besides her human family, Kathy’s household also includes many rescued animals (horses, dogs and cats).
