I am so proud of my team. I honestly believe that you won’t find smarter, more charming, or more passionate dental people anywhere. And I should know. I have met a lot of them. Sure those other teams are nice, but mine is world-class. And skilled. And lots of fun!
Marita, Patient Coordinator
A Winfield resident, married to Ray, and has a daughter Meghan. Earned her Dental Assisting degree in 1980 from Sun Area Technical School. Began working for Dr. Winans in 1999! “Wow, that makes both of us quite seasoned,” says Dr. Winans! She has completed numerous advanced training courses such as Advanced Team Concepts and Advanced Anterior Aesthetics.
She loves cooking for her large extended family, attending her three grandsons football games and wrestling matches. She is also busy taking care of her Golden retrievers Moses, Tucker, Trooper and Scout. Yep, you read that correctly–FOUR DOGS!!
While not full time in the office, you will see Marita and her boundless energy in the office whenever we can pull her away from all that she does!
Brenna, Patient Coordinator
Brenna is a new to Lewisburg, all the way from Wichita, Kansas! Brenna happily proclaims, “I am most excited to have joined an outstanding team that shares the same values and goals that I have. Simply put, it is a passion to make people feel great! I love helping others, and am dedicated to connecting and providing an experience to make our patients feel special.” When asked what she loves about Dr. Winans’ practice, Brenna answered, “I think my favorite thing about Dr. Winans’ practice is that there is a unique, creative, and warm atmosphere for anyone who walks through the door. It is an extraordinary thing to see how many patients grow a relationship with the team.”
When Brenna is not at work, her favorite thing to do is spend quality time hiking, camping, or traveling with her family and friends. She has three kids, Italia, Minabella, and a French bulldog named Ruby. 😉 She holds a strong enthusiasm for staying healthy; therefore exercise is a second hobby of hers. If you can’t find me, try looking in the gym! I am really excited about being in Lewisburg and getting to know Central PA.
