Lorrie: The Woman Behind The Voice

View More: http://kcassidyphotography.pass.us/prosperfamilydentistryt-1One of the most common compliments we receive at Prosper Family Dentistry is on the friendliness of our staff. That friendliness begins with the first voice you hear when you call our office, and the voice most often belongs to Lorrie Atkinson. On the phone, you can actually hear the smile on her face.Lorrie joined our team in April of 2009 and has been in the dental field for over 26 years. Her position on our team is Doctor Treatment Coordinator, and she is in charge of scheduling patients with Dr. Jill and Dr. Lara for their dental treatment. She is trained as a registered dental assistant and often has to put on gloves and help out in the clinical area as well. Because Lorrie is cross-trained, she is valuable in many areas of our practice. Lorrie is also a licensed masseuse and works at a local chiropractor’s office 2 days a week. She has often taken time out of her busy daily work to help our dentists, dental hygienists and dental assistants relieve neck, shoulder and back pain in the middle of a workday.

LorrieUpon visiting with Lorrie, you will quickly learn that her family takes top priority in her life. She loves helping with her 6 grandchildren (and 2 more on the way), and she is a helpful mother to her 4 children, Christopher, Jacob, Bradley and Heather. She is involved in her church and loves bringing sunshine into the lives of others.

Lorrie always has a positive solution to any problem, and it is difficult to find her without a smile on her face. Her optimism and happy energy are contagious, and she makes every effort to encourage and affirm everyone she works with. She not only knows what is going on in our patients’ lives; she actually cares, and she is constantly bringing to our attention the prayer needs in our community. We are so grateful for Lorrie’s constant enthusiasm and cheerfulness.
