I just wanted to share some thoughts with you on what a wonderful team member you have in Beverly, Director of Support. She was such an instrumental part of this transition. It is apparent that all of the dental plans have the utmost respect for her. Her knowledge of the system and ability to jump in to resolve issues quickly is one of the reasons we were able to have a smooth transition. I was very appreciative of her commitment to the project and the team.
