Meet Grant

Financial Coordinator

I started at Sage Orthodontics doing part time advertising work. Since joining full time, I have added numerous responsibilities to my plate here including being your source for any financial or insurance questions you may have. My goal for each day is to come to work with a good attitude. At home, I love “nerding” it up with my PC and PS4, watching the Lions, and playing with my two cats.
