Margaret Schmich, Officer Manager has been at the root of PDA’s smooth office operations for more than 25 years. She consistently ensures customer satisfaction by personally handling client interactions and coordinating communication between staffs.
In addition, she handles all office scheduling, billing, supply ordering and is responsible for model and dye preparation. She is the queen of our scanning and milling work. Office management might not require a degree in criminal justice, but it certainly works well in this case!
You can recognize her by her exceptional smile. Margaret has been married for 30-plus years to Larry and they have two children.
Audra Graham, Assistant Office Manager helps keep the lab organized. Whether it is helping with customer service or internal operations, she makes sure that anything done is done with efficiency and a smile.

Audra is married to Scott and they have two young children.
