A Nebraska native, Lisa is a proud Cornhusker and still enjoys visiting her extended family in the Midwest. She has been a part of COFS for about 15 years, with experience as a Patient Coordinator before being selected to work as an Implant Coordinator 11 years ago. She brings this wealth of implant experience to the implant treatment plans for each of the patients she works with. Lisa’s educational background in Early Childhood Education is evident in her quiet, patient demeanor and in her accomplished teaching abilities while thoroughly explaining the implant process and financial information to our patients.
For many years Lisa has been involved with COFS-sponsored Implant Study Clubs (seminars presented for dental professionals) by helping with the organization involved in hosting these conferences. Being a part of these sessions, Lisa has had the opportunity to build relationships with our patients’ general dentists. “One of the joys of my job is working with our fabulous referring dentists,” she notes.
“I really just think implants are the BEST replacement tooth option and wish everyone could be a good implant candidate. I like to tell patients when they are on the fence about the overall cost to break it down and look at it as ‘taking one step at a time’ and that there are several financial options available,” she states enthusiastically.
Lisa has volunteered her time at the Virginia Dental Society-sponsored MOM (Mission of Mercy Project) in Wise County, VA (Appalachian area), and she is an active member at her church, Grace Lutheran, where she has taught Sunday School and helped with the Altar Guild.
At the top of the list of Lisa’s favorite pastimes is spending time with her 2 children, Josh and Lindsey, both currently attending college. Shopping, hiking, and visits to a family retreat at Lake Gaston are also things she enjoys during her leisure time. She jokes that her favorite food group is chocolate!
Lisa sums up her thoughts on being an Implant Treatment Coordinator by stating simply, “I love working with patients one-on-one and being involved with their treatment planning!”
