Annette is responsible for the financial aspect of our practice, from accounts receivable and insurance filing to patient scheduling. With 30 years of experience working in the dental field, she is able to answer many of our patients’ questions regarding their insurance benefits and financial issues. With such a variety of duties, each day brings Annette a different set of challenges and rewards, all of which she meets with a smile!



Appointment Coordinator

For the past 28 years, Debbie’s friendly voice has been the one our patients hear when reminded of their appointments. She makes sure our schedule is efficient and assists patients with their insurance needs. A true team player, Debbie enjoys the camaraderie of our staff and the fun atmosphere that is created when we all work together. Most of all, she loves seeing a patient’s smile transformation after treatment. Outside the office, Debbie loves to cook, bake, and go hiking on the weekends.

Michele works alongside Dr. Gilbert during all dental procedures, and while she’s the most recent addition to our team, she has almost ten years of experience in the dental field. So far, she’s really enjoyed getting to know our patients and their families, and looks forward to building great relationships with them in the future. In her free time, Michele enjoys traveling, especially to Virginia, and training for her next mud run!
