Debbie – Insurance Coordinator
I started at Treasured Teeth in Montrose in Aug of 2009 as a part-time receptionist. It was my first foray in the dental field. Over the next 3 years my responsibilities increased to include insurance coordination and billing. I helped get the Reunion office up and running and ready for patients in 2011. I moved to Reunion in 2012 to become the OM and help get our Thornton office all set up and ready to open in early 2014.
My son left CO for higher education in 2008 and my daughter did the same in 2015. They both moved west which prompted my decision to move to AZ. I am now the insurance manager for all 3 offices and have the privilege of being able to work from home.
I have always worked with children and love how our practices focus on putting the children first. I appreciate how Dr. Tippets is willing to hire and train the right person regardless if they have worked in the dental field in the past or not. He enjoys teaching his staff as much as he does interacting with the patients.
In my free time I do some light hiking, seek out estate sales, cross stitch holiday decor and read. I also enjoy traveling and visiting family.
