Meet The Staff
Welcome to our practice
We realize how important the office staff is to making your treatment a positive experience. We are extremely fortunate to have the very most knowledgeable and caring group of individuals in our practice. Most of our staff have been with the practice for 15-20 years and we have complete confidence that patients will find our office atmosphere extremely professional yet quite caring and friendly.
We are very proud of our surgical assistants who have recently completed months of additional education and training to become DAANCE certified!
DAANCE stands for the Dental Anesthesia Assistant National Certification Examination. This certification is not required for oral surgery assisting, however it is a prestigious certification to receive. In oral surgery, we administer IV sedation to our patients who prefer to be asleep for their procedures. Assistants who take the exam are knowledgeable in all of the sedation medications, their purposes as well as their side effects. They cover emergency protocols, how the nervous system processes the medications, and the normal and abnormal functioning of the heart and lungs.
The administrative staff at Cary Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Center includes front desk personnel who facilitate scheduling and patient care coordinators who are very knowledgeable and allow the smooth management of various patient needs. Our administrative staff will also help coordinate your care with your general dentist or specialist. There is also a financial department who understands the intricacies of both medical and dental insurance plans. We are available to assist you in any way possible.
