Kathy, the Business Manager at Harmony Dental

Business Manager

Kathy started her dental career thirty-eight years ago working part-time as a clinical assistant for a pediatric dentist while she was in college studying art history. She quickly learned that she was much more business-oriented and moved to the front desk and has been in office management for orthodontic, oral surgery, and cosmetic practices before coming to Harmony Dental. Besides the many practice management certificates she has earned, Kathy has been awarded a Fellowship of the American Association of Dental Office Managers.

Helping patients navigate the insurance maze and making their healthcare dollars go further gives Kathy great satisfaction. Her heroes are her parents and her dream job was to become an artist. Kathy enjoys gardening, crafts, cooking, and traveling with her husband. She is also a clean freak! (It’s a dental thing.)

Katie, a Registered Dental Hygienist at Harmony Dental

Registered Dental Hygienist

Dental visits with her wonderful pediatric dentist were always positive experiences for Katie. Consequently, she decided that the dental field would be a great career to help her patients have positive, fun experiences also.

Katie feels all patients should realize how important preventive dental care is because it can save teeth and avoid systemic health issues. When she is not working, she loves watching her two boys play hockey. She has to admit that she is a perfectionist at heart and a clean freak! Her heroes are her parents. Her dream job as a child was to become a singer!

Tara, the Clinical Dental Assistant at Harmony Dental

Clinical Dental Assistant

Tara always wanted to be in the healthcare industry and has found dentistry to be very interesting and fascinating. After graduating in 2010, Tara has had a well-rounded career working general dentistry and endodontics before joining us. She enjoys helping people and making them feel at ease when they are here.

Tara’s hero is her son, who she loves hanging out with along with her boyfriend, family, and friends. She likes hiking, road trips, wine tasting, and animals! She wishes she had a farm so she could be around animals all the time. Tara’s dream as a child was to become a singer.

Hillary, insurance coordinator at Harmony Dental

Insurance Coordinator

Hillary works with us part-time as our Insurance Coordinator which we all know is very important. She is very good at it because she has such great attention to detail and really enjoys problem solving to help our patients with their insurance issues.

Her other part-time career and full-time passion is the world of dance, she loves working with children teaching them how to dance.

Out side of the office, Hillary enjoys spending time with her family and friends, playing tennis, and cooking.

‘‘I recently had a dental cleaning at Harmony Dental, and I want to let you know how happy I am with the work that Katie does. She is excellent, thorough, gentle, and has a very good chairside manner. She is the only hygienist who has ever checked my thyroid gland! I look forward to my appointments with her and value her help. All the staff at Harmony are excellent. I appreciate the help I get from Kathy in submitting claims for my insurance.’’
