Jordan – Office Manger

Jordan’s career in dentistry started about 6 years ago when she went to school for Da One. She worked for about a year consecutively as an assistant before being cross-trained at the front desk, where she found her niche. Knowing both front and clinical duties and terminology has been a huge help with her knowledge of dentistry. Over the past few years, she has worked both front and back before being hired as an office manager. She can easily explain why a patient needs treatment done, as well as go over insurance benefits and payment options. She has always been fascinated with dentistry, and the fact that she can see a person’s confidence change with treatment is very rewarding. She is a single mother to a beautiful daughter, who will be 10 this year. When she’s not working, she is practicing softball with her daughter, and in the spring summer and fall, both Jordan and her daughter play on our local softball teams. She lives in Person County, where she has been since she was a year old. Although she has moved to several places, she always ends up back home. Jordan loves dentistry and the people that she gets to meet.
