Overcoming obstacles for her patients, be it understanding dental insurance, assisting with financial solutions, or simply working around a patient’s busy schedule, is Moe’s favorite part of her job. She enjoys dentistry’s challenges and the opportunity to learn something new every day! She and her husband are both K-State alumni and love attending sporting events and traveling. They have a 13-pound guard dog named Espe who keeps them safe from all the neighborhood squirrels and rabbits, and a 65-pound lab named Murphy who thinks he’s a lap dog. Moe can’t wait to welcome you to Paola Family Dentistry!
Seeing the happy faces on patients after they finish an appointment is what makes Julie love her job. Julie has been working with insurance her entire adult career, including during her first year at PFD, and she loves every minute of it. She is a pro at advising patients on, and helping them understand, their plan’s specific benefits. She grew up in Texas but after earning her BA in Communications from Kansas State University and MBA from Mid-America Nazarene University, decided to stay and raise her son and twins here. They keep her very busy with sports and activities, but she also enjoys going fishing and spending time at the lake. She is excited to help you understand your dental benefits and how, together, we can help you get the treatment you need!
