Front Desk / Business Assistant
I was born and raised in Los Angeles California but moved to Georgia at 16 with my family. When I was 19 years old I started my Dental career as an Endodontist assistant. I married my high school sweetheart, Ryan, in 2007 and moved to South Florida. I worked for the Levine’s for about 5 years and then took a brief break to raise my 3 handsome boys. I was invited back to work for the Levine’s in their beautiful new office. I function as our in-house “IT” department, scheduling coordinator and resident happy helper.
Front Desk / Treatment & Scheduling Coordinator
I’ve been in dentistry for over 35yrs and made it a career. I was fortune enough to work with quality dentists over the years and I understand the dentistry that is offered to patients. I’m very proud to say I have two wonderful children, a son who graduated Nova Dental School in 2006, and I have a daughter who is a wedding planner since 2005, both live and work in the Orlando area.
Over the years my experience in a dental office includes being Certified Dental Assistant, Treatment and Insurance Coordinator, and Managed Higher End Dental Offices. I believe in the technology dentistry has to offer and I have seen it make a difference in patient’s lives from digital x-rays, to better materials including crowns, bridges, veneers, and implant restorative dentistry. My forte is working with patients and helping them afford the dentistry they want, for a better life, whether it is for function or cosmetic reasons. Your smile is everything!
I joined the Levine’s office in March of this year and it is a pleasure working with them. It is amazing that they have worked in the same area for thirty- three years and I’m so impressed to see so many patients that have been with them over the years, the patients actually welcome me to the practice!
