Mary, Insurance Coordinator
Mary brings over 30 years of dental experience to her new job as Insurance Coordinator. She most recently was the Supervisor/Patient Coordinator for Dr. Frey at Amador Dental Specialties where she worked for over two years. She graduated from Merced Community College in Merced, CA and began her career as an RDA for a periodontist in Merced. Over the years Mary discovered she had a true passion for accounting and started a new dental career in the administrative side of dentistry at Kids Care Dental Group in Sacramento, holding the position of Billing Office Manager/Administrator.
After moving to Amador County, Mary did a lot of research about local dental offices and liked the idea that employees had been working here at Jackson Creek Dental Group for a long time which meant that the doctors really treated their patients and employees right. She was looking for a practice that she could have a long term commitment with, one that was progressive and one she could share her extensive dental experience with.
Mary likes being outdoors, spending a lot of time hiking, camping, gardening and traveling. She tells us her next big trip will be to see the sights in Germany.

She is excited to be the first face people see when they walk through the door because she feels she can really make a difference in someone’s day by being friendly and helpful.
Ciara likes working at Jackson Creek Dental because, “everyone is really nice and supportive.” When you don’t see Ciara at work you might see her playing in a Cornhole Tournament with her husband or working out. She also loves to spend a lot of time with her family and friends, including her 8 nephews and 1 niece. She was raised in Amador County and loves the fact that she still gets to live here and help patients from this area.
