I’ve worked with Dr. Springe since 2013, bringing with me extensive business training and management experience working in Fortune 500 companies. My goal is to help Dr. Springe and her practice become successful by coaching systems and processes in productivity and customer service. Dr. Springe is not only a client, but a very dear friend. Her office is my favorite; I have never worked with a better staff! They impress me every day with their hard work and dedication to patient care.
When I’m not hard at work, I enjoy podcasting, photography, and keeping up on the latest self-development books.
I love working with our patients and ensuring they have the best experience at Pacific Coast Dentistry. Dr. Springe is a gentle dentist, who listens to patients and provides the best care for their needs and goals. I work with patients during visits. I seat them, take X-rays, and prepare them to see the doctor. I explain what will happen during their procedure and then sit chairside, supporting the doctor and our patient. At the end, I provide home care instructions.
When I’m not in the office, I’m usually outside, enjoying the sunshine at the beach or hiking. I also love to travel, go to concerts, and hangout with my family and friends.
Registered Dental Assistant
I love watching each of our patients’ oral health and smile transform. As their smile gets healthier and more beautiful, each patient becomes happier, and I’m part of making it happen! I help patients, preparing them for their procedure, explaining what will happen, and answering questions. Working chairside, I make sure Dr. Springe has everything she needs. At the same time, I check that our patient is comfortable and tell them how well everything is going.
I’m a local girl, born and raised in Atascadero. When you live in paradise, why leave? Outside of work, I love spending time with my daughter. I also enjoy shopping and watching Harry Potter.
I enjoy getting to know our patients and families and ensuring each person has a positive visit every time. It’s important patients know we’re here to help and genuinely care about them as individuals. As our office manager, I oversee our human resources and manage our staff. Working directly with patients, I review treatment plans and financing options. I also handle insurance billing and follow up, so our patients get the most from their benefits.
My wonderful husband Mike and I welcomed our beautiful daughter, Natalie, in 2009. Together, we enjoy riding horses and playing with our three dogs: Turbo, Booster, and Rufus. We also enjoy hunting, fishing, camping, and working in our vegetable garden.
I like meeting new people and learning about their lives. The better I understand their hobbies, care goals, and concerns, the better care I can provide. It’s a joy to spend my days helping people improve their oral and smile health. I provide thorough, gentle dental cleanings. While I’m with a patient, I talk with them about their oral health. I teach them about good home hygiene practices. I also teach about establishing healthy habits and the importance of healthy eating.
My husband and I live on a ranch, which he runs. We have lots of animals we love on. On the days I’m not at Dr. Springe’s, I train horses and do equine dentistry. My husband and I love to travel and try to take one big vacation a year.
