Meet the Staff
Vivienne Vidunas works with her husband full-time. 'Having a dental practice is like having any other small business. It needs close attention,' she said. 'Paul can concentrate on dentistry and I can handle details of the business.' Before joining the practice 16 years ago, Vivienne was a nurse practitioner. 'I'm glad I have a vocation where I deal with people. My past experience helps me be sensitive to their needs,' she explains. Vivienne is quick to point out that she loves her patients and her employees. (She oversees the staff of seven.) 'We have grown to be like family,' she said. 'It is terrific.'
