Registered dental assistant by day, highly skilled administrator, well, by day also. Casey moved back home after working in Seattle for a number of years, and we are so glad she did! Most of the time, she is one of the beaming faces who greet patients. Other skills include making sure insurance companies behave; corralling a mountain of administrative-related tasks on a daily basis; and helping patients understand their treatment, the cost of treatment, and an estimation of what insurance is expected. That is just the tip of the iceberg! She is also an excellent clinician, assisting the doctors with various procedures. We look forward to introducing you to Casey, our new multi-talented team member.
COVID vaccination is in full swing in our Valley. For current information regarding new vaccination clinics, please visit Walla Walla County Department of Community Health’s (DCH) website. You can register for an appointment on their site as well. If you know someone who is eligible to receive the vaccine but who lacks the computer or internet access necessary to register for an appointment, we invite you to assist them by calling 509-524-2647 and leaving their name, birthdate, and phone number, and say they’re unable to register online. To receive timely COVID updates and announcements from DCH, text COVIDWW to 888777.
We have received some calls asking if our office is able to administer the vaccine, and we cannot. This amazing community effort is being led by our county health department. Special thanks to all the wonderful volunteers making this monumental task possible, including our very own Dr. Samantha Kofler.
