Mance is celebrating her 30th year in the dental industry, during which time she has become knowledgeable in many aspects of the field and has gradually acquired a passion for oral surgery. In 2007, she received her AAOMS (Assistant Anesthesia Oral Maxillofacial Surgery) Certification and in 2010 she received her certifications in phlebotomy & OSHA. After a ten-year absence, Mance recently returned to The Center of Restorative Dentistry, and we are delighted to have her extensive experience and radiant personality back with us. Mance volunteers at her local hospice and church; the healing ministries have brought a sense of peace and purpose into her life, and she hopes that those positive feelings are reflected in her work and interaction with her patients.
