Karla Andrade

Regional Office Manager

My name is Karla I am the oldest of 4, I have 2 kids of my own, a 1 year old and an 18 year old. 

I was working at Bakers Burgers when I decided I wanted more with my life than serving burgers. I knew I wouldn’t be good at giving injections and I knew I wanted something quick so I picked Dental Assistant. I graduated class of 2007 from Concorde Career College and was super excited when I immediately got hired by my internship. Since then I have almost done it all. I have been a pediatric dental assistant, X-ray technician, appointment coordinator, receptionist, Dental biller and tracer,  insurance coordinator, general treatment coordinator, specialty coordinator, assistant office manager, and last but not least my most recent goal Dental Office Manager. My ambition has been my drive, loving and conquering every aspect of the Dental world! and my passion for dentistry and customer service has been my fuel! I aspire one day to be a regional district manager but before I get there I love the challenge of this industry that even in my 10 years experience still teaches me something new everyday and the satisfaction that I carry in my heart every time I can make my patients smile.
