Karen Jorden - President & Membership Chair
My dental career began 18 years ago when Metlife hired me to work customer service for them in Utica. I have been honing and expanding my knowledge and skills ever since.
I spent 8 years in New Jersey as an insurance coordinator and front office staff. Majority of my time there was at Union Dental-a general office with an oral surgeon, orthodontist and periodontist on staff. During that time, I worked as the insurance coordinator as well as assisted with oral surgery.
