Hear what our staff members have to say about Lowell & Nashua Oral Surgery Associates
Cathy has worked with us since 1991, starting in our old Lowell office. As our Implant Coordinator, she is part of our management team, but she also assists our doctors with procedures.
“I like interacting with patients, and helping with surgery,” she says. “I initially came to work here because I knew the doctors, and the reputation of the practice.Our doctors are professional and the staff is great. I always refer everyone, friends, family, and acquaintances. I wouldn’t let them go anywhere else.”
Pam has worked with us since 1991, doing “a little bit of everything.” If you are an early bird, and come into the Lowell office before 8:30, she will greet you at the front desk, but she also works with insurance companies and helps with other jobs around the office. “If you see me at the front desk, I will pass you along to the clinical assistant who will be working with you,” she says. “Just know you are in good hands!”
Kathy has been part of our administrative staff since 2000, and is often sitting at the front desk, greeting patients and helping them get settled in.
“I enjoy working with patients both young and old. The most important thing is to make them feel welcome and answer their questions about their treatment or financing.” Kathy adds “Working with the doctors is easy. They are professional and down to earth.” Her advice to future patients: “Nobody likes to come to an oral surgeon but I assure you, in the end if you need us again you will want to come back.”
Jan just celebrated 20 years with our practice! She has worked as front desk administrator during her tenure, checking in patients and doing “anything the patients need” to feel prepared for their surgery. She has seen patients come in with braces, and return years later when they are married and need our help. “They always come back,” she says.
Jan has total confidence in the doctors. “I like that I can work for a practice where I so respect the care and treatment that I can recommend it to my friends and family.”
Trish has worked in our practice since 1994, and is now the Clinical Manager in our Nashua office. She has grown along with the practice, expanding her knowledge of Oral Surgery over the years. “I enjoy…the professionalism of the doctors and staff,” she says. “Our patients are second to none. We welcome you into our practice.”
Maria has been with our practice for seven years, one of two Clinical Managers. Her job is to ensure everything is ready before a patient’s procedure so the doctors can do their job. She prepares paperwork, takes medical histories and explains whatever patients need to know “in layman terms.”
“I love working here,” she says, because “patient care is first, and everything else comes after that.” She explains, “when a patient wants a procedure, our doctors will always (tell them) if they don’t need it. They are honest with patients.”
Maria says the staff is welcoming and friendly, and all very well versed in oral surgery. “It’s not just about teeth. We look at a patient’s entire health history” and, she adds, make the best decisions on behalf of those patients.
Maureen has worked in Nashua since 2009. You can find her at the front desk greeting patients, and she also handles insurance claims and patient billing. Maureen describes the staff as “well trained” and feels “they make every effort to make our patients feel welcome and cared for.” She adds “we do our best to ensure each (patient) has a positive experience and is given exceptional care.”
Vera has worked at our Nashua front desk since last summer, and “loves taking care of patients and making them feel comfortable.” She praises her fellow staff members, saying “When you enter our practice, you will be welcomed with lots of smiles.”
Nikki and Dawn
When you visit the Lowell office, you’re likely to be greeted by Dawn or Nikki. They each joined our staff in July, and have already become an integral part of our team. Their jobs include working with patients, making sure referrals are in place and coordinating with other staff members.
Nikki believes “our patient care…is the best I’ve ever seen” in an oral surgery office. She describes our practice as “very well rounded,” handling many orthognathic and trauma cases. This is facilitated by our close proximity to the Saints Campus of Lowell General Hospital, although the majority of our patients are treated right on our office.
Dawn said she loves the “individualized care” our doctors give their patients. She notices that patients often refer their friends and family, a tribute to the relationship they develop with our doctors. Dawn likes working with staff members both new and experienced, and feels each of her co-workers brings “a different energy to the team.”
Both Dawn and Nikki have worked in other dental practices, and were impressed with the level of training they received, including extensive computer training and seminars in emergency protocols.
