Our Dental Team
Tour Our Office
Office Manager, RDA
Cheryl, our old-timer, started her dental career with Dr. O’Keefe about 20 years ago. After 10 years with us she was called to move overseas with her husband and three children, but to our benefit they returned six years later. She has been a permanent fixture here with us ever since. One of the aspects of our office that she has appreciated is the experience and versatility of each team member. A cross-trained team allows everyone to stay current with every detail of the dental office. When not in the office Cheryl can be found attending her son’s soccer games, traveling with family and staying accountable to her Fitbit.
Front Office Assistant, RDA
Gina joined our team in 2014 as our front office assistant. Her passion for the dental world has given her 30 years of experience in general dentistry. Her desire for continued education in the dental field helps her to understand our patients’ needs and inspires her to help our patients to stay current with their dental appointments. Outside of work, she enjoys serving in her church, and has a blended family with six children and three grandchildren. For personal achievement, she enjoys running marathons with her husband.
