Cindy – Practice Administrator

Cindy joined Biloxi Family Dental Care in 2008. She is an educator by training and took a two-month detour in 2008 to prepare a training manual for new practice administrators. One of the reasons she finds her work here so fulfilling is that it is a learning environment. Cindy gets to use her teaching skills to help educate patients about things like dental treatment and insurance. She also gets to be a student. She started out with no dental knowledge, and has since learned a great deal about dentistry and managing a dental practice. Another aspect she greatly enjoys about working here is forming relationships with our patients and seeing them realize their goal for improved oral health. Cindy contributes to our success by working behind the scenes, filing insurance claims, advocating for patients with their insurance companies, and completing reports and other clerical functions. In her leisure time, Cindy enjoys cooking, reading, travelling, and spending time with family and friends. Cindy is also an active member of the Advisory Board of Wings (youth theater group) at the Lynn Meadows Discovery Center.
