Jerri

Dental Hygienist

Hi, I’m Jerri. My main roles in the office are to provide our patients with gum disease treatment, routine cleaning, and placing sealants for children. I have worked as a hygienist since 1991 and have been happily working with our dental team since 2001. I feel very satisfied to know that I am helping to improve our patients’ smiles and their health by providing high quality dental care. I am a native of Iowa and have lived in Marion since 1996. When I’m not in the office I enjoy reading, playing cards and darts, and hanging out with my kids.


Jan

Office Manager

Hi! I’m Jan. Dr. Besler inherited me when she purchased the practice in 2004. I have been at the front desk since 1996 and I love my job. At the office you will find me welcoming patients, coordinating appoints, and taking care of insurance needs. In my spare time, I enjoy watching the Rough Riders play hockey and watching Iowa football games. I also like to take walks, read, and go shopping when I’m not spending time with my children, grandchildren, great granddaughter and cocker spaniel, Princess Boots.
