Briana - Practice Manager
As the Practice Manager of Midwest Oral Surgery I oversee the daily general operations throughout the office. My goal is making sure everyday runs smoothly. I began my career in Oral Surgery in 1999 and have had the pleasure of working with Drs. McDermott, Wees, Glow, Wewel and Anderson since 2008. I have had the opportunity of working as an oral surgery assistant, clinical manager and front office coordinator which has given me the experience in many aspects of the oral surgery office. I love the opportunity to continue to learn and educate myself in the latest and greatest in oral surgery practice management and clinical care. I am an active member of the SOMSA- Society of OMS Administrators, which is an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Practice Management Group.
I feel very lucky to be a part of the amazing team at Midwest Oral Surgery. Our doctors and our team are passionate about providing excellent care to each and every one of our patients. We continue to strive together to deliver the highest quality of oral surgical care in the region.
I am originally from South Dakota and Iowa but have called Omaha home since 2003. I love to travel and spend time with my family and friends! I have 3 amazing children who are all very active in school and sports. When I’m not at Midwest Oral Surgery you can find me cheering on my children at one of their many events!
Venessa - Clinical Manager
I am a Denver native who started out as an oral surgical assistant way back in 1998 and absolutely loved it! I have had a wide range of experience since then. I served in the United States Navy as a reservist for eight years as a Hospital Corpsman during which time I served three years active duty at several military hospitals around the country. During this time I also received my certification as a radiologic technician. Six years ago my husband and I were stationed in Omaha, Nebraska and instantly decided to stay and enjoy the “Good Life” with our children. I graduated with honors from Bellevue University where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Healthcare Management.
I am now doing what I love with the best surgeons and the best staff I have ever had the pleasure of working with!
Outside of work I love to travel, read, watch movies, and spend time with family and friends.
Kelsey – Implant Supervisor
I initially went to college to study architecture but decided to make a career change a few years into my program. I attended a different college for dental assisting and it was the best decision I could have made for myself. I truly love every aspect of what I do. Being able to ease a person’s worries and help them achieve the smile of their dreams is the most rewarding part of my profession.
Outside of the office I enjoy spending time with my very large Irish family and traveling the world. I was born and raised in Omaha, NE and have never left. I love it here! The Nebraska Cornhuskers are my absolute favorite sports team-Go Big Red!
