Sue – Cottage Grove Office Manager

I came to Excellence In Dentistry in 2006 with 18 + years of office experience and was fortunate to have the doctors take a chance on me with no dental background.   Since then I have gained a greater understanding of the dental field and enjoy helping our patients better understand it as well.  What I like most about my job is getting to know our patients and helping them with questions regarding insurance, billing or assisting them with their appointments. Outside of the office, I enjoy family time, Pinterest projects, summertime at my parents on the lake, my dog Howard and traveling.
