One more reason to celebrate in April, and it’s kind of a big deal! It’s Cherron’s birthday! She’s not only Dr. Oakley’s wife of 25 years, she is also our incredible implant coordinator. Anyone who has met Cherron, knows her like a good friend, but in case you want to learn more, here’s some fun facts for you…

Cherron’s a farm girl at heart. She can drive a tractor, ride a horse, rake hay, deliver a baby calf, show a sheep, make a wedding dress, kill a snake with a hoe, catch a fish, etc. etc. There’s not much she can’t do! In her free time, she’s either cooking, sewing, skiing, spending time with her family or friends or planning some sort of party or event.

As some of you may know, Cherron is (also) the coordinator for the Great Plains Study Club, and has been for 20 years. However, her love for dentistry started long before. She started filing charts for her family’s dentist when she was just 15 years old, and loved the dental industry so much, she went to dental hygiene school! After graduating, she was a dental hygienist for many dentists in Kansas City.

Just like Dr. Oakley, her favorite restaurant is Café Provence, favorite sports team is the Oklahoma Sooners (“Boomer” – Cherron), favorite vacation spot is Steamboat, CO and favorite holiday is Christmas… Can anyone say “match made in heaven?”

Help us celebrate Cherron today and all weekend actually by wishing her a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
