Your Care and Comfort Come First
Lori joined the practice in 1988 as Dr. Briscoe’s dental assistant. She was a full time office assistant for several years. Lori then found that working part time as the preventive care coordinator worked better with her family demands. She keeps us all on track and will make certain that your preventive cleanings are on schedule too!
Lori is married to Dave and has two children: Baili & Boston.
She enjoys going to the lake and spending time with her family.
Liz joined our practice in April 2015. She was raised in North Carolina and moved to Indiana after graduating from South Caldwell High School. She has been a chairside dental and orthodontia assistant for several years.
Liz, & her husband Ryan, keep busy with their dogs – Maddy & Cooper, cat – Oscar, and Ryan’s son Mason.
Liz spends many mornings working out and logging as many steps as she can on her Apple Tracker. She also enjoys running, playing volleyball & cooking.
Teri joined the practice in 2002 as an office assistant. Teri is responsible for scheduling appointments, making financial arrangements and filing insurance claims. She is married to Kent and they have two daughters: Jade & Josie. When away from the office, Teri enjoys the outdoors, camping, and just spending time with her family.
