Accounts and Insurance Coordinator


Julie C. 

My name is Julie C. Before starting at Generation Dental Group I worked in a small practice for 21 years. I love helping patients with their insurance needs as well as helping them set up treatment plans that can help them ensure great dental health. I have been married to my best friend Doug for 34 years. We have 3 adult daughters that are our greatest accomplishments. Family is the most important thing to both of us. Over the years we have had 9 dogs and 4 cats, most were rescues. I love to quilt, cook and travel. And of course spend Saturdays and Sundays with my family either watching the Wisconsin Badgers or Green Bay Packers. If I am not working the front desk with Karen or Kassi, I will be in the "glass house" working on patient accounts. Please poke your head in and say "hello!"
