 BACKGROUND

     I have been employed at Simmons Dental Associates for 22 years. It is my job to ensure that when a patient calls the office; their concerns are clarified so that the appointment is scheduled properly. I manage insurance claims so that our patients get the most benefits from their insurance companies. I track the recall appointments so that our patients are being seen for their regular checkups. If a patient calls with an emergency, I make sure they are seen promptly in our schedule.

 BACKGROUND

     I have been employed at Simmons Dental Associates for 10 years. I manage all aspects of our computer software that holds the patient electronic record. It is my job to be sure patient records are input correctly, that insurance claims have all the appropriate attachments. If there are issues with the software, it is my job to solve the problem. The privacy and security of the patient record is of critical concern here. I ensure that the front office runs smoothly so that our patients can move easily through the scheduling process, timing of the appointment, checkout, and rescheduling if necessary.

 PERSONAL INTERESTS

     Most of my time and energy is spent enjoying time together with family. When I have some free time, I enjoy reading, listening to good music, watching Ancient Aliens, and cooking. I am bilingual in English and Spanish.
