Annie joined our team in 2019 immediately after graduating from the PFW Dental Assisting Program. We knew Annie was a hard worker and would fit well with our team after she visited our office during a student internship. We have many PFW assisting students complete a rotation in our office, but she clearly stood-out and got our attention.  Annie currently works full time as a member of our clinic team at both locations.

Becca joined our team in 2015 and works at both of our locations in the roles of a Clinic Tech and a Front Desk team member. Recently you may have seen her monitoring the parking lot to screen patients and obtain COVID forms. She also has the duties of organizing our CPR training and she calibrates our 3D CBCT x-ray machine and our intra-oral scanner. That calibration is important to ensure that both of those machines are working properly which makes the clinic move so much smoother!

Becca was raised in Columbia City and moved to Fort Wayne in 2012. She attended Ivy Tech for her prerequisites and then transferred to IPFW to attend the Dental Assisting Program. Becca had an internship with our office as a student and then joined our team immediately after graduation.
