Treatment & Insurance Coordinator
Shirley was born in Fiji but now lives the Bay Area surrounded by her family. With nearly fifteen years of experience in the dental field, it’s hard to find something Shirley isn’t knowledgable about regarding our industry! Shirley began her dental career as a Registered Dental Assistant (RDA), and she amassed years of hands-on patient experience as well as office and practice management skills. As our Treatment and Insurance Coordinator, Shirley not only handles scheduling for Dr. Temlock at San Francisco Periodontics and Dental Implants, but she also works with your insurance carrier to identify and maximize your eligible benefits. She works tirelessly to cut through the insurance bureaucracy to pre-authorize treatment and understand your benefits plan, and it is her goal to ultimately help our patients comprehend their insurance carrier’s benefits and contracts.
