Dixie, Treatment Coordinator
I am originally from Lancaster County and that is where I began my career in dentistry. I graduated from Cocalico High School and from the National School of Health Technology in Philadelphia as a certified dental assistant. After moving to Berks County I joined the team at Penn’s Commons Dental Group in 1989 and worked as a chair side assistant with Dr. Schmoyer and Dr. Greenlee.
Many years later my role in the office changed to the Treatment Coordinator. I was absolutely terrified to migrate out of my “comfort” zone but quickly realized that my true calling was to “comfort” and “assist” the new patients coming in to our practice. Acting as their liaison, I coordinate all appointments with our doctors as well as with our referring team of specialists. I work closely with the doctors to customize treatment plans on an individual basis. I enjoy helping our patients, both new and the ones that have been part of our Penn’s Commons family for many years achieve optimal oral health, whether that means complete oral rehabilitation or something as simple as a brighter smile. It truly makes me happy!
My two children and I live in Exeter Township.
