Catie – Receptionist

Born and raised in South Florida, Catie moved to Missouri in 2012. She joined the dental field in 2008, starting out as a dental assistant. She then joined our team in June 2018 and has enjoyed working for a growing, fast-paced and patient-focused office. Catie welcomes each patient with a smile and helps them to feel at home. And when it comes to insurance, she’s thorough in getting the information necessary to inform patients of their benefits.

Catie’s family lives throughout the country and although they’re all spread out, it’s a wonderful excuse for her to travel often. In her spare time, she spends time with her family, friends and her boyfriend. She loves to play cards and throw darts. Catie’s also a huge fan of scary movies and reality TV.
