Pam Heidorf, Office Manager
Pam graduated from The Ohio State University with her degree in teaching. She worked in her dad’s dental practice for 28 years before Dr. Shroyer took over his practice in 2010. Pam worked chairside for 8 years before getting into the administrative part of the practice. Pam is at the front desk and will most likely be the first person you will talk with to schedule appointments. She will submit insurance claims for you, discuss financial arrangements, and answer any questions you might have in regards to your appointments. Oh, and she always likes a good joke!
