Michelle – Practice Manager
I joined the Coastal Oral Surgery team in 2016, after more than 10 years of working in the medical and dental profession. In January 2022, I was promoted to Practice Manager. I received my Associates Degree in Medical Administration, Billing and Coding in 2011. It’s very rewarding to know that I am able to apply my skills and knowledge to help patients maximize their insurance benefits ensuring I have tried to save them as much out of pocket expenses as possible. Being able to apply my skills and knowledge to advocate for our patients and our team has been extremely rewarding. I am passionate about helping people, and I love being able to serve my community. I have been happily married for over ten years to my loving husband, and am the mother of two sons and my Great Dane furbaby. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family, mountain biking and being around the ocean.
Marchelle – Insurance Coordinator
I joined the Coastal team in April of 2019 after working 11 years for a local chiropractic office as office manager. I was responsible for credentialing, insurance claims, scheduling, and other various office duties. I have proven to be a fast paced learner and committed to all that I do. I understand that people have different needs and I have always gone above and beyond to do what I can to meet those needs. I am new to the dental field, but I intend to gain as much knowledge as I can to ensure that I am prepared to assist patients in whatever they may need. I love to connect with patients and make them feel welcomed whether it is through a phone conversation or conversation in the office. I am a native of Williamsburg, VA and currently reside in Williamsburg with my husband of 13 years. In my free time I enjoy traveling, shopping, crafting and working out. I am excited to be a part of the coastal family and can’t wait to see what the future has in store for me.
Julia – Implant Coordinator/Surgical Assistant
I moved to Williamsburg six years ago from Newport News, where I first began my career in the dental field. I have been an Oral Surgery Assistant since 2013 after completing my Associate Degree in Dental Assisting in 2012. Although I’m relatively new to the field, I’m excited for my future in dentistry. Having a lot of dental work done as a child, I take pride in my work and making our patients feel as comfortable as possible. I am ACLS certified, Radiation Health and Safety through the Dental Assisting National Board, as well as the Virginia Dental Society of Anesthesiology as an Anesthesia Assistant. I enjoy educating our patients on improving their dental health. As a surgical dental assistant there is nothing more rewarding than helping our patients transform their smiles into confident ones.
