Our Dental Assistants
Janiece is the guru of all dental assistants. Really. She has given this practice over forty-three years of dedicated professional care. While assisting Dr. Gilson, you may have the pleasure of her spontaneous singing or at least a few bars of humming can be heard throughout the office. Her concern for a patient's well-being is unsurpassed. Really.
Jackie knows her stuff! She has assisted Dr. Shoemaker on and off for over eighteen years. Patients feel immediately at ease with her chair-side manner. There is no lack of conversation while professionally taking care of the patient's needs. We are lucky to have her!
Ellen joined our group in 2014 and is one of Dr. Shoemaker's assistants.
Berta has worked here, part-time, as a Registered Dental Hygienist graduating from WCTC, since 2003. Patients like her easy-going demeanor while she gets the job done! She provides a high degree of oral health care and leaves patients with a good feeling. She has also recently become our full time office manager, so you may see her in several areas of the office!
Debbie is the gear gal that keeps our well-oiled machine going! She is our Office Manager and task master extraordinaire. To say she knows her stuff is an understatement! Everything from helping you with financial arrangements to keeping your munchkins happy at the Lego table. She does it all! She has been keeping us organized and laughing for 18 years!
Theresa is our worker-bee! Aside from greeting you in the office, she also schedules appointments, confirms appointments, sends out continuing care postcards, and even remembers your birthday! She has been keeping us at task for eight years!
