Jessica, Office Manager

Jessica grew up in Clark Lake, MI.  She started a career as an educator for Aveda Institutes for about a decade and then went out on her own as a Cosmetologist in the later years.  After many years in the cosmetology industry she devoted more of her time to the family business here at Maxson Dental.  You may find Jessica greeting you as you walk into the office, working at the front desk, bookkeeping or mowing the lawn.  Jessica says " I do everything but teeth, LOL"!  She and Dr. Maxson have 3 adult daughters that are starting their own adventures out in the world doing cool things.  When they are away from the business they enjoy spending time outdoors and taking their 2 black and tan hounds (Bo and Billie girl) on adventures.  Jessica's favorite role in the practice is the new patient experience.  She believes that people more now than ever, desire being cared for in a slower and closer kind a way.  Jessica says "when I hear people's stories and why they are looking for a new dentist I actually hear what a patient values.  Greg and I have spent a lot of time over the years around the conversation of values and what they mean to us.  They are our foundation, and when our values align with what patients desire, I know that they have found their new dental home".
