Kim joined the Bierie Dental team in 2002 as our Treatment and Financial Coordinator, bringing to the team a blend of both dental and business backgrounds. She is a graduate of the Dental Assisting Program at Northeast Iowa Community College and has been involved in the dental field for over 30 years.
Kim’s dental knowledge and her background as a dental assistant serve
as invaluable tools for helping patients to proceed with dental treatments recommended by the doctors. She works with our patients on all aspects of their individual treatment plans, from answering any questions and scheduling, to helping make the financial arrangements for affordable treatment.
Kim enjoys spending her free time with her husband, three children, and their Golden Retriever. They enjoy kayaking, hunting, traveling, pizza night at home in front of a fire, watching a good movie, or best yet, a Chicago Bears game.
In 1973, Barb graduated from the Dental Assisting Program at Kirkwood Community College and began her dental career as Dr. Dave Bierie’s assistant. After taking some time off to raise her three children, Barb
joined the Wertz Dental team, Bierie’s next-door neighbor, as the Business and Insurance Coordinator for 30 years before retiring. During that time Barb could not help but enjoy the members of the Bierie Dental team. Serendipitously upon her retirement, the Bierie Dental team had a very flexible position open in the insurance department, and Barb rejoined Bierie Dental in July 2012.
Barb enjoys her partial retirement by spending time with her husband of
45 years and their eight grandchildren. She also loves golfing, walking, hiking, biking, pickleball, and anything to do with the outdoors. And when
it comes to football, she roots for the Green Bay Packers.
Erin became a member of the Bierie Dental team in 1999. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Erin received bachelor’s degrees in psychology from Clarion University and in nursing from Creighton University. Given her diverse background, it is not surprising that Erin has taken on many different roles since joining the Bierie Dental team.
Erin spends her free time with her husband and their Siberian Husky. She also enjoys doing yoga, loving polar bears, and cheering on the Dubuque Fighting Saints, the Pittsburgh Penguins, and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
