Sue Loiben has been working with Dr. Ted since opening the practice 26 years ago. Before this she earned her BS in Elementary Education from University of Illinois and then worked in retail management, hotel management, real estate and nonprofit association management.
In the beginning, Sue was the dental assistant, front office and marketing manager. Happily we were able to bring on additional help as the practice grew. She now enjoys working with her office “family” that consists of our team as well as the parents and children whom she has had the pleasure of getting to know over all of these years.
If you ever need us after hours, you will often be speaking or texting with Sue along with Dr. Ted. She wants you to know that it is her job to keep everyone happy, so please reach out to her if you ever need help with anything relating to our office and your child’s dental health!
