For the fifth installment of the "Meet the Staff" series, we interview our office manager, Becky.
1) How long have you been working in dentistry?
I have been working in dentistry for 29 years.
2) What inspired you to pursue your career?
My husband, Dr. McVey, had been a dental associate with Dr. Wheat in Lakin, Kansas. When he bought a practice in Garden City, I started my dental career on the administrative side.
3) What is your favorite part about your job?
By training, I am a teacher with my Masters in Education. I really enjoy the patient education aspect of my job when I discuss the Review of Findings with our patients. I also enjoy helping our patients get the most benefit from their insurance policies. This may involve writing a letter to an insurance company on behalf of the patient.
4) What are some of your hobbies?
I love to read good novels, especially history, fantasy, and science fiction. I really enjoy traveling and visiting places.
5) If you had to choose between cats and dogs, which would you choose and why?
I would have to say that I am a cat person. There is just something special about sitting and reading a good book with a cat sitting on my lap. When I head to the living room, my cat Jazzy will run to "our" chair; she is always eager to sit on my lap.
