Hello, I am Susan. I was raised in sunny southern California and moved to Phoenix in 2005 with my family. I became a Kierland Dental Arts patient shortly after moving and have had Dr. Nigam as my dentist ever since. He has done veneers for me and whitening. In 2007, while looking for part-time employment, I joined the Kierland Dental Arts team working in the front office. I assist the office administrator with insurance, appointment verification, and other front office responsibilities. As an employee of Dr. Nigam you will be given the utmost in care, be appreciated and treated like a member of his family.
When I am not at work I am spending time with my husband of over 20 years and my two lovely daughters. We are a family who enjoys the outdoors hiking and just enjoying life. I really look forward to working with you and servicing all your dental needs.
