Missy has been working in the field of dentistry for almost 20 years. She started off working for a general dentist at the age 19, where she received on-the-job training as a dental assistant. After several years of assisting, Missy was asked to move to an office manager position which gave her an opportunity to expand her horizons in the field of dentistry by learning scheduling, working with insurance companies, and more personal interaction with the patients.


"I am so excited and thankful for this opportunity to continue to learn and grow as I work with Dr. Furman in periodontics and implantology."  


Missy and her husband have 3 beautiful daughters. In her leisure time, she enjoys reading, cooking, watching movies and playing Uno with her family and friends.
