Top Orlando Family Dentist Celebrates Staff Anniversaries

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - April 21, 2015) - Dr. Thomas Overmeyer, a premier Orlando family dentist, recently hosted an anniversary celebration to honor staff members that have been working at his practice for more than 10 years.

The celebration took place April 9 and 10 at Dr. Overmeyer's Orlando dental office. The office was decorated with a Roaring '20s theme, and the staff wore beads, headbands and feathers while treating patients. Dr. Overmeyer, owner of the practice, even wore a bow tie with his scrubs. The celebration was topped off by lunch and a nonalcoholic champagne toast.

There are nine employees who have worked at Overmeyer Family Dental for more than 10 years. Office Manager Sarah Case celebrated 33 years with the practice. Appointment Secretary Rosie Miranda and Insurance Secretary Josie Wenz-Zack celebrated 18 and 16 years, respectively. Dental hygienists Leigh Ann Dyal and Lisa Hamre celebrated 23 years each, while Lorraine Colon and Leah Morrison celebrated 12 and 18 years, respectively. Two dental assistants, Diana Josey and Sharon Glee, also celebrated their time at the Orlando practice, boasting 18 and 20 years, respectively.

"Having such a loyal staff is great because after a decade -- or three in some cases -- you really get to know the people you work with every day," Dr. Overmeyer said. "Patients benefit by coming into the office and building relationships with the staff. We learn about our patients' ups and downs in life. We know their hobbies and about their jobs and families. We have seen many kids grow up from a young age and have kids of their own. It makes our patients feel more comfortable because they're coming in to see old friends."
