Account Manager

Hello! My name is Allison and I’m the Account Manager for both our Fargo and Grand Forks offices. I joined the team in 2012 as the Fargo office manager and I feel so blessed to be a part of this team. The best part about working here is the relationships I’ve made with both our amazing families and also our team members. It’s so rewarding to watch our patients grow in confidence from their first dental visit and then as they get more comfortable as they continue their dental journey. We have so much fun as a team and I enjoy each and every day at work.
 
When I’m not at work I spend my time with my husband, three amazing children, and our mischievous dog Sadie. We enjoy travelling, especially to the beach, trying delicious cuisine, and watching NFL football. I truly look forward to helping you in the future!
