The Administrative Team at Jackson Creek Dental Group
Providing Quality Service for Jackson, Ione, Pine Grove, Sutter Creek and Pioneer
Sandy’s unique background in technology, healthcare and marketing has proven to be a huge asset here at the Jackson Creek Dental Group. Joining us in early 2005, her natural drive and enthusiasm instantly made her an indispensable part of our practice. Sandy enjoys being a part of a practice that is so passionate about the dentistry it offers. She is sincerely interested in helping to make each patient’s experience the best it can be and loves being given the opportunity to use her marketing skills to help educate them and the whole community about keeping smiles for life. She has also taken on sharing the job of Practice Administrator, responsible for the day-to-day, behind the scenes running of the practice.
Sandy has taken an active role in helping various local organizations and committees serving the dental needs of children in our county who may not otherwise have access to dental care. She volunteers her time at community events helping to educate both children and their parents on a variety of dental health topics, and is a member of a local oral health initiative.
Sandy is an active member of the Kiwanis Club of Amador County and a past Kiwanis board member and Key Club Advisor at Argonaut High School. She also volunteers with Tri County Wildlife Care. Sandy loves spending time with family and friends and also has a passion for antiques.
Trina joined us in 2010, bringing over 13 years of dental experience to our office in the areas of administrative and clinical support, management and training. Prior to that she was a Field Account Manager for Pac-West Telecomm, Inc. and Grainger Industrial Supply. At Pac-West Telecomm she was named top sales person of the year five years in a row. Her dedication, passion and management expertise have added great value to our organization. One of Trina’s goals is to serve others to create “wins” for both patients and employees, and she strives to do this every day. She likes the family atmosphere at Jackson Creek Dental Group, and the fact that we are very involved in our local community. She has also taken on sharing the job of Practice Administrator, responsible for the day-to-day, behind the scenes running of the practice.
When Trina is not working at the dental office, you will find her out hiking, biking or camping with her family. They also enjoy doing a lot of traveling together.
Mary, Insurance Coordinator
Mary brings over 30 years of dental experience to her new job as Insurance Coordinator. She most recently was the Supervisor/Patient Coordinator for Dr. Frey at Amador Dental Specialties where she worked for over two years. She graduated from Merced Community College in Merced, CA and began her career as an RDA for a periodontist in Merced. Over the years Mary discovered she had a true passion for accounting and started a new dental career in the administrative side of dentistry at Kids Care Dental Group in Sacramento, holding the position of Billing Office Manager/Administrator.
After moving to Amador County, Mary did a lot of research about local dental offices and liked the idea that employees had been working here at Jackson Creek Dental Group for a long time which meant that the doctors really treated their patients and employees right. She was looking for a practice that she could have a long term commitment with, one that was progressive and one she could share her extensive dental experience with.
Mary likes being outdoors, spending a lot of time hiking, camping, gardening and traveling. She tells us her next big trip will be to see the sights in Germany.
Carolle, Practice Coordinator
Joining Jackson Creek Dental Group in 2012, Carolle brings a background of working extensively with the public which has allowed her to sharpen her focus on customer service skills. She most recently was a Community Specialist working at the ARC of Amador and Calaveras, where she worked with developmentally disabled adults. Prior to that she was an Executive Assistant in the Project Development Department at the Jackson Rancheria Casino and Hotel, and the Sales Manager for Amador County at First American Title.
Carolle is excited to be part of the comradery and professionalism here at Jackson Creek Dental Group. She says she “enjoys being part of a dental practice where the doctors and staff have such an awesome reputation in the community for both their clinical and customer service skills.”
You can find Carolle and her husband riding bicycles all around our local counties when they are not at work. She also plays a little tennis, and is very active in the community. Carolle has been involved in the Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club and several other local groups in the county.
Deanna has been working in the dental field since 2009 as an RDA with additional experience in front office. She attended Carrington College and received her RDA license in 2009. She chose the dental field after going to work with her sister who was a dental assistant and working in a dental office as part of the ROP program at her high school in Marysville, CA. Because of personal reasons, Deanna decided that she wanted to continue her dental career working in the front office. She enjoys having one-on-one relationships with patients and being able to see their dental transformations take place as they complete their treatment.
After moving to Jackson she began to look for work in a dental office close to home. Her friend was a patient here at Jackson Creek Dental Group and told Deanna what a great place it was and that she should check it out. “I really liked the office and the fact that it was fast pace and well organized,” stated Deanna. “My other great observation was that the overall cleanliness of both the lobby and clinical areas was exceptional.”
When Deanna is away from work she loves to spend time with family and pit bulls, Tidus and Daytona. She also loves horses and was quite the barrel racer in high school.
