Accounting & Scheduling Manager

Amanda became a part of our practice in September of 2020. She loves working with a wonderful group of people who have a great time at our office. Even though she works remotely, Amanda still talks with Dr. Ruff and Leena many times throughout the day, and they never fail to make her smile. Amanda contributes to our success by making sure our practice takes care of our patients’ needs with an open mind and heart. Going to the dentist can sometimes not be fun, so she wants to make every visit the best it can be.

Amanda has been married to the same wonderful man for over 20 years! They have an amazing son and a house full of pets to keep them busy. When not working, she loves to read, and books are a passion for her.
