Treatment Coordinator | Owensboro Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Dana Pustelak
Treatment Coordinator

As the Treatment Coordinator for Dr. Tucker’s office, I act as a liaison between Dr. Tucker and the patient. With over 7 years of experience in the dental field (5 + with Dr. Tucker), my goal is to help the patient completely understand the proposed treatment. I will follow through with everything from explaining the patient’s insurance benefits, to payment options and scheduling the appointments necessary for the procedure and follow up care. The patient will feel at ease during all phases of the treatment because our commitment to taking care of the patient is second to none.

When not at the office, I love spending time with my family; my husband Stan, 3 children, daughter in law and 2 granddaughters. We love going to the beach whenever we can just to relax.

Meagan Volk
Surgical Assistant

Hi! My name is Meagan. After attending Owensboro Community College for two semesters for Social Work, I decided to change my degree to Dental Assisting. I graduated from Ross Medical Center here in Owensboro. It was a wonderful experience and working for Dr. Tucker and his staff has been such an amazing opportunity! I work as a chairside/surgical assistant to ensure our patients receive the care they deserve and to feel as comfortable as possible. Oral Surgery is a passion of mine, and I look forward to many years in this field. I hope to see you in our office to assist Dr. Tucker in your Oral and Maxillofacial needs!

Shannon Ralph
Dental Anesthesia Assistant

My name is Shannon, and I have had the privilege and pleasure of working for Dr. Tucker since 1999. While I have many responsibilities in our office, my particular expertise lies in assisting Dr. Tucker in the surgical setting. My primary goal is to make our patients feel completely comfortable, while maintaining a safe and professional environment. I obtained my Dental Anesthesia Assistant certification through the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, of which I am an Allied Staff Member. I am also a Registered Dental Assistant through the state of KY. I have enjoyed many opportunities during my career with Dr. Tucker, including participation in Dentistry From the Heart (a charitable event that offers dental care for patients who cannot afford it). I strive to give each patient unmatched personable service and very much enjoy being part of “Team Tucker”.
