Sherice Altreche, Office Manager

Sherice brings 30 plus years of experience in dental practice management to Dr. Martin’s practice.  She started her dental career at 15, behind the front desk in the practice where her mother worked as a dental assistant.  In addition to her extensive practice experience, Sherice has worked for insurance brokers, and has become an expert in understanding how to maximize insurance benefits for patients.  She also spent a year working in a high volume, hospital based setting, which required a deep understanding of dental claims and insurance reimbursement.  She continues to attend training seminars and working with renowned dental consultants to ensure she is current on the latest management and clinical advancements in dentistry. She is excited to work closely with Dr. Martin to implement new practice management and clinical technologies in his new practice.

Jasmine Jones, Dental Assistant

I feel fortunate to be in a place where I can learn the best techniques and participate in state of the art care. I try to anticipate the doctor’s every need so that things run smoothly during a procedure. As a team, we put patients first, putting them at ease and creating a supportive atmosphere for them.
