Dental Assistant

Hello! My name is Jamie. I am a wife, mother of 3, and a grandmother of 2. My dental career set off 20 years ago. I have been working side by side with Dr. Apel for 15 years. I strive to make sure your experience is always pleasant. I love helping patients overcome their dental fears and insecurities, and giving my patients the highest quality of care.


Scheduling Coordinator

I have been in the dental field for 10 years. As a scheduling coordinator I love building relationships, working through treatment concerns, and treatment plans with our patients. Originally from New York City, I moved here 3 years ago with my husband and dog Sophie.
