Nancy Dempsey, Insurance Coordinator

    Nancy has been up front, working with Dr. Budd for over 20 years.  You will find her all around the office. She is mostly up front scheduling patients and filing insurance but sometimes you can find her assisting one our dentists in back.  Nancy was born in El Dorado Springs, then moved to California for 16 years, and thankfully for us, settled in Republic.

When she isn't at work you can find her walking the hills of Silver Dollar City with her grandchildren, Jackson and Emerson.  In the summer she enjoys going to the lake. Her favorite time of year though, is fall, when she can enjoy time with friends sitting around a bon fire.

She also graces us often with delightful confections because she is a fantastic baker.
