Patty D

Patient Coordinator

My name is Patty. I am originally from the Chicagoland area of Plainfield and moved to Punta Gorda in 2015. I graduated from Prairie State College in 1985 for dental assisting and have more than 25 years of dental experience. I joined Dr. Gilleland’s team in October 2015 as his patient coordinator.

Happily married for 27 years, I have two daughters. My oldest still lives and works in Illinois and my younger daughter lives and works in Sarasota. I enjoy going to the beach, boating, shark fishing, and traveling.
