Hello, my name is Cheryl! It is my pleasure to introduce myself as the office manager at Higley Park Dental Care. Since entering the dental field over 17 years ago, I have not felt more excited and proud to represent a dental office as I now do. It is an honor to lead a team that is so dedicated and passionate towards each and every patient, as well as each other. We work together to achieve a professional, comfortable, and fun environment “where dentistry is a walk in the park”!
Along with my husband and two children, the dry heat of Arizona encouraged us to stay and establish roots here in Gilbert. The children have since grown to be responsible young adults, but family time spent together remains a top priority. While making memories with family and friends, we enjoy biking, fine dining, visiting artisan markets, musical performances and an occasional show. Other passions of mine are cooking, shopping, and decorating.
I look forward to meeting you and making you feel welcome for years to come. I understand that each of us strives for a beautiful, healthy smile to be the finishing touch to our best self. I believe Dr.Eckman and Dr.Bailey offer their best selves daily to each patient through compassion and honesty.
For over 30 years Kaiulani has worked in the dental field, she is the one we depend on to keep our patients’ dental insurance details in order. Since Kaiulani has joined our team, patient treatment plans based on insurance fees have been more accurate and expected insurance payments more consistent. As many of us have a good understanding of the many different dental insurance plans, it is Kaiulani that shares her in depth knowledge and can answer the difficult questions that arise.
Although Kaiulani’s family heritage is not Hawaiian, she was born in Honolulu. This explains how this “Air Force Brat” got her unique name. After growing up in southern California, she moved to Arizona of which her parents where natives. Kaiulani, and her husband of many years, have 2 daughters and 6 grandchildren. Spending time creating memories while camping with family and friends as often as possible is important to Kauilani. Her vacation hours are always reserved specifically to be sure time is spent with the family R.V. at the two Nascar races here in Phoenix.
It has been over 6 years now that Stephanie has been acquiring her knowledge of how the dental field operates. She has worked as an assistant in the back office of some offices and in the front office of others. At this point of her career, she prefers to present her finely tuned skills of organization and precision while supporting patient needs at the front office. Stephanie provides bilingual professionalism to each patient with kindness and style.
Stephanie takes great pride in her eye for fashion and shopping for bargains. She likes the good stuff for a good price. This single girl with a great sense of humor, and great sense of self, enjoys making memories with her large family any chance she can. Travel adventures with friends is also a priority that she likes to make time for when she is away from work.
Skylar will most likely be the first one of our team to greet you. For over 5 years she has been at the front desk of a dental office smiling and helping patients. Scheduling appointments, organizing new patient paperwork, updating all patient records, checking accuracy of insurance coverage, and following up on submitted insurance claims, are a few important aspects of Skylar’s responsibilities. While her position requires her to continuously multitask throughout the day, Skylar stays calm and focuses on the priority at hand to be sure to efficiently serve the patient’s needs.
Once Skylar is away from the office, she enjoys spending time with her brothers, they are her best friends. We often hear of late-night snack runs made together to the nearest fast food drive thru. On that note it is worthy to share that Skylar has daily cravings for In and Out burgers, as well as Dutch Brothers beverages. Skylar loves to meet new people, so going out with friends to meet new friends is her favorite way to spend her time. The outing does not always have to involve a special adventure, she can find fun and laughter in almost anything. Her personality includes a bit of a dare devil spirit that is evident when she goes off roading, fishing, or whatever else. Regardless of the hobby, the recap involves some sort of amusing incident. Shopping trips, or caring for her client’s eyelashes, may be Skylar’s only chill time.
