Cindy Matheson – Front Office Manager
I have been employed with Otego Family Dental now for over a year in the Oneonta Office. I gave up the seagulls and moved to the wildlife in Unadilla 4 1/2 years ago and I absolutely love it.
I was a stay at home mom and raised three children in Long Island. I have three grandsons who I spend as much time as with as I can. I currently have one dog and three cats, which all are rescues. I come from a background of banking and management with over 20 years of experience.
I enjoy many things in life such as traveling, entertaining, hearty laughs, good food and of course, wine. I especially love working with people. I have the gift of gab which makes my job easy
