Welcome Sandy and Angela to Our Team

Independence, MO (March 2016) — We’re excited to introduce you to the two newest members of our dental health team. Sandy Kurok and Angela McCluskey both joined us to start 2016.


Sandy Kurok

Sandy joins our team as a dental assistant, bringing a wealth of dental health experience with her. Sandy primarily provides chairside assistance for Dr. Oatman, and works to help ensure that all of your dental health questions are answered while helping schedule appointments and keeping the office running smoothly. She lives in Pleasant Hill with husband Norbert, and has two children, son David and stepson Nik. In her spare time, she loves to camp and spend time with her family and animals.

Angela is our new receptionist, so when you call or visit us she’ll likely be the one you speak with first. In her 20+ years in the dental field, Angela says that getting to know patients has been one of the most enjoyable aspects of her position. She and husband Mike reside in Independence with their beautiful daughters, Abigail and Sydney. Angela loves volunteering with Girl Scouts (she is an assistant leader) and traveling, especially cruising.


Angela McCluskey

Please join us in welcoming Sandy and Angela on your next visit.

Last fall and the first quarter of 2016 have been especially busy for us. Besides adding Sandy and Angela to our team this year, last fall Dr. Widick underwent unexpected surgery. We know this caused a change for some of you in your scheduled dental visits, and we apologize for that inconvenience. But the good news is that that Dr. Widick is back and fully recovered from her surgery.

As always, please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions about your dental health. We look forward to seeing you on your next visit.
