Karina
Karena- Office Manager
I grew up in Fort Shaw and graduated from Simms High School.  I have been with Hays Dental Group, LLC since 2005, and I enjoy working with our extremely caring doctors and our friendly staff.  Hays Dental Group, LLC is my home away from home. My goal as the office manager is to give supreme customer service to all patients I come in contact with. I enjoy working with all of our patients, especially when I get to see some extreme patient transformations—literally frowns get turned upside down. That, along with being able to work for extremely caring doctors and a friendly staff, is why I love it here!!I have three very active boys who play sports all year round. When we’re not traveling for hockey, football, wrestling, and baseball, we enjoy camping, working in the yard, and relaxing (when we can).
