Meet Our Staff
Carol — Patient Care Coordinator
Carol began her career in the oral surgery field in 1981 in California as a surgical assistant and back office supervisor. When moving to the beautiful Northwest in 1998 she was fortunate to continue her career in oral surgery at Puget Sound Oral Surgery and moved to the front office as our Patient Care Coordinator. Carol has always had a passion for working with patients and strives to make them as comfortable and happy as possible by greeting them with a warm smile and cheerful welcome. You will always catch her in our front office smiling and laughing with our patients.
For fun, Carol enjoys going camping with her wonderful husband, Bob, and their three spoiled pups; Aussie, Valentino and Blitz. Sometimes the cats even tag along! She takes in all the outdoors has to offer from exploring lighthouses, kayaking, combing the beaches, hiking along a river, around a lake or through the mountains and takes any opportunity to save those memories through her photography. Outside is her happy place!
