Margaret- Clinical Manager
Margaret is originally from Chicago, Illinois. She moved to the Columbia area in 1985. After staying home with her 2 children, Brent and Brooke for 5 years she decided to check back into the workforce. Margaret feels she was very fortunate to have found Dr. Becker who at the time had only been in private practice for a year and was in need of an assistant. Dr. Becker taught Margaret everything she knows about dentistry and feels so blessed to still be working as his right hand over 25 years later. In her spare time, Margaret loves spending time with her children, 2 precious grandsons, Cole and Bryce and sightseeing on the back of a Harley.
