Office Manager

Debbie Lodise

“I feel fortunate to be the office manager for such a respected oral and maxillofacial surgery practice. We have truly built this practice together, and our excellent team of assistants and clerical staff provide the best possible care in a professional, caring and fun environment. Personally, I’ve been in the dental field since 1991, and started my career as a dental assistant for a general dentist. After spending 2 years at that practice, I came to work here in office management. I have known and worked with Dr. Nissman since 1993 and Dr. Salin since 2004, when he joined our practice. It is a privilege to be part of this wonderful family.” – Debbie Lodise
