Sarah

Office Manager

I graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary/Special Education. Despite the many rewards of working in education, I found myself still wanting to be involved in healthcare so I became involved with aesthetic medicine in 2010 and have ventured into the world of dentistry for the past year. I look forward to assisting you on your journey towards looking and feeling your best!
