MEET THE TEAM
Rosalie has been with the team since its opening in 2013 as Office Manager. Her role with the Company has been instrumental to both patients and offices alike. For patients, she helps obtain insurance authorizations and reimbursements. For offices she coordinates many "after-hours" appointments and emergencies. She is always available to discuss details of sedation with patients and answer any questions.
Lynn joined the team in early 2014 as a Patient Care Coordinator. Her previous role as an Operating Room Assistant has given her first hand experience to General Anesthesia and she is experienced in reading patient medical histories. She has chosen to step out of the operating room to help patients prepare for sedation dentistry as she is responsible for obtaining patient registration forms and obtaining medical clearances as necessary. She is a valuable team member to coordinating appointments with dental practices and patients.
Karen joined the team in early 2017 full-time as our Administrative and Clinical Director. Her extensive history in bookkeeping and office management made an easy transition to our office. She has quickly taken on advanced issues in claim submissions, administrative duties and treatment coordination.
Alexander has helped launch Advanced Dental Anesthesia into a brand that Dentists recognize as the face of Dental Anesthesia. He is responsible for all marketing, social media, and software updates for the office.
