Front Office Staff
Aside from the dentists and hygienists, there is a lot of work to be done around the dental office to make your visit enjoyable. Our staff is extremely friendly and experienced and always strives to help you with any issues regarding your overall dental experience.
Please take the time to meet the people who will work directly with you to meet all of your dental needs.
Patty is our Insurance Specialist. She handles all insurance claims along with major cases and all Invisalign cases. Patty graduated with honors with an associate degree in dental assisting in 1981 and began working with Dr. Schulte soon after graduation. She began her career as Dr. Mark Schulte's chairside dental assistant and has had many different duties in the office over the years. Patty has been a staple in our front office for many years. You will now find her in her own office but she always likes for you to pop in and say hello! If we were to name all the things Patty does for our office, the list would go on and on! She does so much for us and her heart is so big! We could never thank Patty enough for all the love and energy she has put into our office over the years! We are eternally grateful.
"I am here to make each patient's visit as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. I have enjoyed meeting so many of you wonderful patients, I truly feel I may call you friends."
Patty has been married to her husband, Brian, for over 36 years and they have two outstanding sons, Joey and Nick. She is a proud Grandma of little Cecelia Rose. She loves to spoil her family!
Megan is the wife of Dr. David Schulte. Although she has always felt a part of Schulte Family Dentistry, she came to work with the office in September 2016. She and Dr. David have 3 children, Taylor, Ben, and Molly. Megan enjoys reading, learning new things, hiking, and watching her kids grow into good people. She will never turn down a good movie with an extra-large tub of buttered popcorn! She recently learned to play golf so she can keep up with Dr. David's golf game! You will see Megan in the front office as well as working closely with Patty on insurance claims, patient accounts, and office accounts. Megan continues to learn new things about Dentistry every day and works hard to lead our team!
"One of the hardest and greatest gifts of our office has been to work side by side with my husband as we grow our business and watch him grow as a leader and very skilled Dentist. He truly cares about our patients and the care they receive. In addition, it has been so special to grow closer to our entire team and watch us work together like never before!"
