Cathy, Practice Administrator
Hi I'm Cathy. I am the first smiling face you will see when you enter our office. I will happily answer your phone calls, schedule your appointments, file your insurance claims, coordinate your treatment plans, help you understand insurance benefits and much more. If you have questions, I probably have the answer and if I don't my right hand woman Sonya will for sure!! I came to Smiles Unlimited in 2004 to help answer the phones for a few days. I loved it and decided to stay! I had no experience in the dental world and knew nothing about dentistry other than my brother is a dentist, Kevin McNamara, DDS. With my many years of experience in customer service and office administration, I learned insurance and dentistry and have moved the practice into a new decade of electronic claims and paperless charts. I graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia with a B.S. in Hotel and Restaurant Management. I have been married to her best friend John since 1990. We have 2 children, 5 grandchildren and our non-human companion Athena. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, karaoke, swimming and vacations in the Caribbean.
Sonya, Insurance Coordinator
My Name is Sonya. I joined the Smiles Unlimited Team in May 2018. I am a ROCKSTAR Office Insurance Coordinator, and I will be the second smiling face you see when you step into our office. I have been in the dental field for 14 years. I graduated in 2008 as a dental assistant at the top of my class, but after 6 months I was moved to the front office and there I found my dental niche. I really enjoy the challenges of the insurance world with the ever changing coding system. My true passion honestly is being able to use what I have learned to be able to explain to my patients what exactly is needed while informing them about how the insurance may help them. It is my goal to make sure my patient understands the reason and the expense prior to leaving the office. I was born and raised in the Grandview, Ray-Pec, Belton area and currently reside in Belton. I recently married my best friend and love of my life Anthony. We have 2 children Callum and Monty, a dog Jenga and a cat Smokey. I enjoy fellowshipping, reading and volunteering my time to help others. We recently became Christ Followers. I love to go camping, floating, and boating. I like doing yard work and we are currently working on fixing up our house.
