Shannon has been with us since 2022, and she says that she feels very fortunate to work alongside a great group of knowledgeable, kind, and caring people who feel like family. She started her career as a dental assistant in an oral surgery office and then moved to a general dentistry practice before transitioning to the front office.
At home, Shannon has a daughter, Makenna, as well as a dog and cat waiting for her. In her free time, she loves doing crafts like macrame, reading, and watching movies. She used to be an avid horseback rider and still loves horses!
Malorie, Business Office Receptionist
Malorie started her dental career as an assistant, and she says that her knowledge and skills from this time easily transferred to her current role. For her, seeing someone’s smile after receiving treatment is always rewarding, and she feels very fortunate to work with a group of individuals who aren’t just co-workers, but feel like part of her family.
At home, most of Malorie’s free time is spent on the couch with her dogs, Scarlet and Leila, cuddling and watching movies. She also likes to paint, draw, and enjoy nature by going fishing, camping, and snowshoeing.
