Billing Specialist

Hello my name is Deanna

I am the insurance biller here at Burbank Family Dental. I love the work that I do, helping to educate our patients on oral health and understanding their needs to reach their dental goals is what we do. At the end of the day watching our patients leave knowing that we helped them meet those goals is very rewarding.
