Marge Rubin
Office Manager / Insurance Coordination

After being a stay-at-home Mom for 12 years, Marge joined our team as the doctor's transcriptionist. During her time at that position, she learned the details of the front desk and was a backup for the other two front desk administrators. When the time came that she needed to work full time again, the office was there to welcome her. For the past 15 years, Marge has been one of our anchors at the front desk. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family, especially her beautiful 20 month old granddaughter.

Lisa Zsebedics
Surgical Clinical Assistant

Although professionalism and safety are paramount to Lisa, making others laugh is par for the course in easing the stress of the day! After 30 years in dentistry, Lisa believes instilling confidence and comfort to the patients are her primary goals. Originally trained in medical assisting, periodontal treatment became her true calling. Her love of reading, gemology and cuddling her Scottish Collie refreshes Lisa to embrace the challenges of each new day. The most rewarding response is hearing a patient say "I'm so glad you are still here! ". Besides the doctors skills, the best medicine is the comfort of a familiar face.
