Cheri Long was actually one of our long-time patients before becoming a full time employee in 2012. As a patient, she discovered a passion for health and wellness that led her to becoming an integral part of our team. Cheri is our Office Manager, so she is often behind the scenes communicating with our team to make sure everything is running smoothly. She loves getting to know our patients as she assists at the Front Desk a couple days a week, and she also acts as Event Planner for Dr. Vidan’s TMJD Seminars.
Cheri received her Bachelor of Arts in Theology from Valparaiso University in 2008. She has been married to Patrick since 2009, and they have two cats, Pink and Teal. She enjoys strength training, ringing handbells, singings, and puzzles.
