Hi, my name is Colleen. I’m the patient coordinator for Dr. Emily and the first friendly face you’ll see when arriving at the office. I truly enjoy my career and the relationship that I form with each patient. The dental field is my passion and I love our smaller office that truly cares about every patient that comes in the door. I am currently going on 14 years in the field with many more to come.
When I’m not working, you may find me working in some of the fields around my house. We have a small funny farm that keeps me very busy. Starting with just one dog; we now have 7 horses – 2 of which I show in Dressage, 3 dogs, a cat, pond and tank of fish, and most recently a bunny. Animals bring me tons of happiness; unable to have them at home as a child, I’m just making up for lost time. :-)
Besides the abundance of animals, we also have 2 young daughters. If I thought our hobby farm kept me busy; boy was I mistaken. I never thought my heart would be so full raising these spunky fun-loving girls. Always on the go; they keep me running to grandparents, swimming, riding lessons, and play dates with lovely friends. I couldn’t ask for more.
I look forward to meeting you at your upcoming appointment with Dr. Schmalz. My promise is to always put my best foot forward along with our whole staff when it comes to your periodontal and implant care.
