Gloria Clayton: Administrator
Originally from Birmingham, Alabama, she graduated from Hewitt-Trussville High School ( she won’t tell the year) and went into the banking field for 10 years. She credits that time to learning the importance of customer service. These services range from a smile at the front door, to an easy payment plan that allows the patient to have the necessary work needed without unnecessary stress.
While in the banking business, Gloria met her husband, Jim, where the two of them married and were soon transferred to Tuscaloosa. That was over twenty years ago. At that time, she was a stay at home Mom who decided she needed something more in life. So, she decided to work part-time and it just so happened that Dr. Davis needed a part-time person to help in his office. Knowing nothing about the dental field, Gloria grew from that part-time person, to seventeen years later, being one of the most proficient Practice Administrators around.
When asked how she has done it for so long, her comment is always the same. “My love of dentistry is due to the relationship I have developed with all of our patients, my wonderful group of team members and mostly my sincere admiration and respect for Drs. Davis, Marshall and Shofner. I realize how lucky I am to feel so passionate about my career choice and hope that this translates everyday to everyone I come in contact with.”
