Karin

Office Coordinator

With over 20 years of experience, I love my position as Office Coordinator at Manalo Smiles and cherish our patients striving to create relationships which often can decrease anxiety. I believe that dental health plays a large role in your overall well-being. Having had many different dental procedures myself, I am able to share those experiences and that knowledge with our patients that may have apprehensions about treatment. I am always happy to help whether it be scheduling a convenient appointment, working to maximize your insurance benefits, explaining treatment, costs, billing or answering any question that you may have. I have two grown sons and spend my free time with family and friends boating on the rivers, riding my motorcycle, keeping up with home renovations, watching movies, an looking at classic and antique cars.
