Barb is currently our office coordinator, or “office cheerleader” as she is sometimes described. She is happy to be with such an amazing team and it definitely shows. She has been part of the practice for seventeen years, initially as Dr. Makrauer’s chairside assistant. Now you will find Barb assisting right at our front desk. Her position allows her “people skills” to shine. She cares for our existing and new patients with a listening ear, a helpful hand and a BIG SMILE! Barb has four grown children and three grandchildren of which she is so proud. She enjoys reading, walking, boating and being at the beach!!
