Marie Gustowski – Office Manager: Marie has been in the health profession field for over 23 years. Her experience includes full charge bookkeeping, which helped her transition into the medical field.

The position she was offered demanded working long hours in accounting, and it no longer suited her schedule. Shortly thereafter, she took the plunge by joining a dental practice, and has never looked back. She enjoys helping patients understand their health benefits, and helping to calm their fear of being in a dentist chair. She has served as an office manager, insurance coordinator, accounts receivable lead, and front desk associate. She looks forward to working with the patients to ensure that their visit is a comfortable and pleasant experience.
