Mary

Mary Paroline is the Office Manager for Dr. Rick Coker's Smile Studio. She usually answers the phone so she’s the one you will most likely talk to when you call. She’s fun. She’s efficient. She’s friendly. She is incredibly hardworking.  She has lectured to dentists and team members at several dental conferences.  Everyone values her expertise.

According to Mary, when a patient says, ‘Everyone here makes me feel so special,’ or ‘I can’t believe I enjoyed coming to the dentist,’ or they just give us a hug – that makes working here so special. I can go home at night and say to myself, ‘I really helped to make a difference!'”
