Rebecca was hired in 1997 as a surgical assistant. Today, as implant coordinator, she works exclusively with implant patients educating them about implant treatment, coordinating appointments throughout the entire treatment sequence and answering questions that may arise. The coordinator is a direct liaison between our office and the referring dentist’s office.
The surgical staff at Saratoga County Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Associates (SCOMSA) includes five surgically trained registered nurses (RN's) and one Licensed Practical Nurse who assist in the administration of IV sedation and general anesthesia during surgery. Having six full time nurses available to monitor our patients during the administration of anesthesia as well as during the recovery phase of treatment is unprecedented in our area. Our goal is to provide each patient with the highest level of surgical care possible in an office environment. Our RN's are not only BLS (Basic Life Support) certified but they hold the distinction of having received ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) certification as well.
In addition, our nurses and our surgical staff graduated from a High Fidelity Human Simulation Course during which they were trained in the most current techniques to treat sedated patients and manage medical emergencies.
To facilitate the best possible patient care, we also have five experienced oral and maxillofacial surgical assistants on our staff. All surgical staff members are BLS (Basic Life Support – CPR) certified. Our surgical support staff represents over 125 years of clinical experience to better serve our patients.
The administrative staff at Saratoga County Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Associates includes up-to-date and informed front desk personnel who facilitate the scheduling, confirmation and coordination of patient appointments. In addition, we also have a billing specialist on staff familiar with many insurance plans, claim submissions and reimbursement schedules. All of our administrative staff members are BLS (Basic Life Support – CPR) certified.
