Your first contact with our office will be the cheery voice of Mary Beth, our enthusiastic receptionist-manager who has been with us since we set up our practice. Mary Beth began working with Dr. Cremasco as his chairside dental assistant after she graduated in 1981 from Certified Dental Assisting at Fanshawe College in London. She went on to obtain her Preventive Dental Assistant certification.
In 1990, Mary Beth brought her dental knowledge to the front desk and became our receptionist. Her warm and friendly demeanor continues to make every patient feel like he or she is a member of our dental family. In 2000, she received the Dental Assistant and Receptionist Appreciation Award from the Guelph and District Dental Assistants Association.
She capably manages the flow of patients through the office by scheduling appointments, carefully taking care of billings and payments, performing day-to-day office administrative duties as well as assisting the Dentist from time to time when the need arises. Mary Beth is also certified in CPR.
