Katie Morris - Patient Care Coordinator
Being involved in every aspect of our patients’ care means that it is my responsibility to make sure that they have truly unique and personalized dental experience, from the moment they walk through the door to the moment they leave. Delivering exceptional patient care on a daily basis sends me home with a great sense of accomplishment. Dr. Vardanian and I work seamlessly together to make this a reality on a daily basis.
The best part of my job is how truly rewarding it is. Our care changes people’s lives for the better, and knowing that I helped guide them through the whole process gives me great satisfaction. The long-term relationships I have developed with our patients are very precious to me.
Dr. Vardanian has become my mentor over the past eleven years, and he continuously invests time into educating me further in all aspects of dentistry. I have learned so many things from him and continue to learn daily; he is always eager to help me understand the question at hand. I am truly grateful for the opportunities that have come from working with him.
I live in the Sacramento area with my amazing husband and our beautiful daughter, plus our three dogs and a cat. We love to go out and explore river and lake trails and are frequent visitors to the local dog park. Being raised in California has resulted in me being a lover of outdoors; most of our summers are spent camping, boating and fishing. I also love to create cakes and cupcakes in my spare time, a skill I have been taught by my dear grandmother.
