From 2001 until 2005, Coty assisted Dr. Konen. While still working with Dr. Konen on occasion, from 2005 to 2014, Coty primarily assisted with Dr. Ganshert.
The best parts about working at our office, she feels, is working as a team, the variety of patient care that we offer and watching people achieve success in restoring their smiles. Her loyalty, dependability, reliability, in-depth of knowledge of the office and her outgoing, positive attitude all contribute to the wonderful, professional environment of our office.
When not at work, you can often find Coty helping out with the many needs of her family’s dairy farm. Coty and her husband, Steve, have a son, Joseph, and two daughters, Evelyn and Edith. Music is deeply interwoven in Coty’s life as she loves singing to serve her church and community in verying musical capacities. With any remaining time she may have, Coty also enjoys baking, cooking and canning.
