Megan – EFDA
At Dr. Rita Tempel’s office, I hold the position of Office Manager and Expanded Function Dental Assistant. I have worked with Dr. Tempel since becoming licensed in 2005. My husband Marc and I have two energetic boys. I personally love spending time with my family and watching my children play baseball, football and basketball. I have enjoyed working in this field and seeing how dentistry can change a patient’s life forever by just smiling with confidence.
Kandice – Dental Assistant
I am a full time Expanded Function Dental Assistant who graduated from the Dental Assistant Program at YTI in November 2014 and from the EFDA Program in November 2017. I started my career with Dr. Tempel in October 2014, where I strive to provide the best dental care to each and every patient. I have a passion for beautiful, high quality dentistry that is found at the hands of Dr. Tempel and our team. I love seeing the smiles on patient’s faces when they are finished with their dental treatment.
In my spare time, I enjoy traveling to new places and spending time with my family and friends. Being able to make people laugh and smile is my top priority!
I work full time for Dr. Tempel as a Patient Care Coordinator. I love seeing everyone’s beautiful smile each day as they enter the building for their appointments. I am new to the dental field, however, I am so excited to be starting this career. I have over 4 years of customer service experience. I spend as much of my spare time as I can with my family and friends. I also have a mixed breed dog who I adopted 3 years ago. Bailee is always attached to my hip! I have absolutely loved working with Dr. Tempel and our team because they have such great values. I strive to give each patient 100% satisfaction at every visit. I can’t wait to meet you!
I am a registered dental hygienist at Dr. Rita Tempel’s office. I graduated from the dental hygiene program at Harrisburg Area Community College in 2016 and received the prestigious Access to Care Award. Since then, I returned to college and received my bachelor’s in dental hygiene from Wichita State University. As a registered dental hygienist, my main focus is on preventive treatment and delivering quality individualized care to each patient. I love helping my patients achieve and maintain optimum oral and overall health.
When I am not caring for my patients: I like to spend my time with my family, friends, and my two dogs. I enjoy being outdoors, creating artwork and traveling.
