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.
Daisy is a fresh flower planted at our front desk that you will meet while checking out after an appointment. After working more than 5 years in the dental field, she offers the knowledge and compassion needed to help patients navigate through the many questions and concerns that arise. Immediately claiming ownership of her position, Daisy is dependable and dedicated to her daily responsibilities.
Originally from New Mexico, Daisy and her sense of humor is the perfect member to our work family that we now know was missing. Here in Arizona and away from family, she continues to stay in close touch with all members of her family, and especially adores her nieces and nephews. Time to herself includes many things; getting her lashes and nails done routinely, never ending shopping for a new pair of sneakers, and keeping her perfect little nose and full lips tucked away behind a book. Daisy loves to read and is a self-proclaimed “book nerd”!
Kale joins us with a lot of enthusiasm. You will see her at the front desk as she is the first person many people meet when entering our office. Even though Kale is new to the dental field her determination to learn as much as she can as fast as she can is genuine.
Being a mom is one of her proudest moments to date. Kale’s little girl is often the main subject of her love for photo sessions. Although, she also enjoys the art of painting and music. Shopping for clothes and makeup is another passion Kale enjoys outside of work.
