Lena

How long at Dentistry by Design:

6 years

Responsibilities:

A lot of the “behind the scenes” stuff- for example, working with dental and medical insurance companies to maximize patient benefits, correspond with physicians for sleep medicine cases, accounting and human resources “stuff”, etc.  Sounds simple, but there’s a lot more to it!

Personal Interests:

Cooking/baking, singing, craft projects, reading/playing with my son.

What motivates you:

A feeling of personal satisfaction knowing that you’re doing the right thing the right way, and that ultimately I’m setting a good example for my son.

Unique Facts About Me:

I speak Spanish (double major in college along with Communication), I play in the bell choir at church, and I volunteer as President of the Board of Directors at Little One’s Day Out Preschool.

Personal Motto:

“Be humble, be kind, be thankful, be happy, have balance, and always count your blessings”

Ok- What Makes You Smile?

A good joke (the sillier the better), being with my family and friends, the innocence and silliness of kids, and experiencing unexpected moments of happiness where at first it wouldn’t be expected.
