Orlando Family Dental Office Staff Member to Retire After 16 Years

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - May 27, 2015) - An Orlando family dental practice is celebrating the retirement of a long-time employee who is leaving the practice after 16 years of service.

Josie Wenz-Zack, the insurance secretary at Overmeyer Family Dental, plans to retire on June 8. She will be replaced by Kelli Van Hoven. Van Hoven has previously worked at Overmeyer Family Dental and is the stepdaughter of Dr. Thomas Overmeyer, the practice owner.

“The staff is sad that Josie is retiring but glad that she can enjoy her golden years and complete her bucket list,” Dr. Overmeyer said.

Van Hoven, a former teacher, holds an undergraduate degree in communications and public relations and a graduate degree in early childhood development. She has years of professional experience working in education and the dental field.

Dr. Overmeyer said patients should expect a smooth transition and continued excellence in insurance coverage information and claim submissions.

“With Kelli coming in there will be an infusion of new techniques and speed in handling insurance companies’ inquiries and our patient claims,” the Orlando dentist said.

Overmeyer Family Dental, 3221 S. Conway Road, Suite C, provides preventive dentistry, affordable cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry for patients 3 years old to 103 years old. Individual services include fillings, extractions, wisdom teeth extractions, root canals, partial dentures, full dentures, mini and standard implants, porcelain veneers, Six Month Smiles, Invisalign, sleep apnea treatments and general dental procedures. The practice provides mouthguards for patients who grind or clench their teeth, as well as the "Silent Nite" anti-snore device.

Dr. Thomas Overmeyer was born in Fort Wayne, Ind., and graduated high school in Ohio in 1974. In 1977, he graduated cum laude from Ohio State University, receiving his bachelor's of science degree in microbiology in just three years. He then graduated from The Ohio State University School of Dentistry in 1980 and attended a general practice residency program at the Medical College of Ohio at Toledo. After dental school and his residency program, Dr. Thomas Overmeyer moved to Florida and spent seven months as a dental associate before buying his own practice. Dr. Thomas Overmeyer has advanced training in mini and standard implants, Six Month Smiles, Invisalign and LANAP laser gum treatment.

Dr. Jessica Overmeyer, a Florida native, received her bachelor's of science degree in biology from the University of Florida, where she also minored in business and Spanish. She also attended The Ohio State University School of Dentistry, graduating in 2014. She joined her father’s practice last year. Dr. Jessica Overmeyer holds certifications in mini dental implants, Invisalign and Six Month Smiles.

Dr. Thomas Overmeyer bought the Orlando dental office that is now Overmeyer Family Dental in June 1982. Overmeyer Family Dental moved to a new office building in February 1984. The 1,500-square-foot facility was recently remodeled and includes six treatment rooms and state-of-the-art dental equipment. Dr. Thomas Overmeyer uses the PerioLase laser to treat periodontal disease, a method that he has found to be more effective than traditional gum surgery. He also uses digital X-rays to diagnose and educate patients about oral health issues.
