Dr. Siegel and the staff recently attended a continuing education seminar in Baltimore, Maryland, hosted by Paragon Management, Inc. The team was updated on procedures and systems utilized in the business office area including scheduling and appointment book management, allowing patients to benefit by a more efficient handling of their accounts, appointments and insurance needs. In attendance with our Gaithersburg dentist, Dr. Siegel were Debra Merulla, office manager, Jilna Raichura, dental hygienist, Nicetta Medley, certified dental assistant, and Annette Podraza, front desk coordinator.
By coincidence, the meeting coincided with Dr. Siegel's birthday. So to celebrate not only that auspicious occasion, but also to spend a little time together out of the office, they had a wonderful dinner at Roy's Hawaiian Fusion, where European techniques and Asian cuisine meet Hawaiian hospitality to create a fine dining experience. During the meal the staff surprised Dr. Siegel by telling him that as his birthday present to him from the staff, after dinner they would be attending a performance of Cirque D' Soleil's Totem, which was held under an old time circus Big Top. A wonderful time was had by all.
