Get to Know The Team...
Our patient coordinators are the wonderful people you will see at the front desk in our office! They are dedicated to helping patients in person and over the phone. Answering phones, verifying dental insurance, welcoming and reappointing are just some of the things they do. They work along side of the Administrative Support Specialists to ensure all of your administrative dental needs are met. If any of us can be of service to you, please let us know! Our email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
My name is Danielle and I am a native Floridian. Yes, they do exist! Growing up in Florida I’ve been privileged to meet people from everywhere and all walks of life. Living in the sunshine state we’re fortunate to enjoy many outdoor activities year-round. I enjoy being outside weather it’s fishing or watching a football game with friends. My hobbies include crafting, cooking, baking, football and traveling. My husband is from Massachusetts which means I get a taste of cold weather every now and then, which I love!
Being of service has always been close to my heart. I grew up learning that life is made up of what you put into it and what you can do for others. I’ve always worked in a customer service capacity of some sort because I enjoy helping people. Dentistry has been a great outlet for me to impact people’s lives. By doing what I do I feel like I can make dentistry less intimidating and more accessible to my patients. I think of myself as not only a patient coordinator but a patient advocate when it comes to fostering a great relationship between the practice and our patients.
My goal is to leave someone’s day better than I found it. Most people would say the world, but it starts with one person at a time. I hope to have a ripple effect of happiness for the people I meet in a day. Even if it’s just a friendly smile or polite conversation I want to in some way make their day better. My patients do the same for me. It’s been a pleasure to get to know my patients here and I’ve learned so much from them! I hope to continue to get to know more of my patients and make their days better.
My name is Cindy. I am originally from Peru but I moved here with my family 17 years ago. I have a beautiful daughter who is the absolute joy of my life. We enjoy traveling together. Our favorite destination is of course Disney World. She loves to see all the characters! We also enjoy museums and community events.
I’ve been in the dental field for 11 years and I learn something new every day. I’ve always found insurance interesting and I like to get to the bottom of difficult insurance questions. I am also bilingual which allows me to help a broader spectrum of our patients. I enjoy making dentistry easy for my patients. When dentistry is easy people tend to be less nervous or afraid.
I look forward to continuing my career in dentistry and finding new ways to help my patients get the treatment they need. I’m always up for the challenge of making dental treatment and insurance more understandable.
I began my career in dentistry because I love helping people with their health. Initially, I wanted to go into nursing but changed my mind when I found dentistry! I have been in dentistry for twenty years and have worked in different capacities over the years. I am a registered dental assistant and currently serve with the front desk team.
I enjoy helping patients with all their dental needs and I like to see the dental treatment from start to finish. A smiling patient is a happy patient!
Originally from New Jersey, I relocated to Florida a few years ago with my husband, two children and two dogs. I enjoy fishing, snow skiing, reading and watching my children grow. I am very proud of my daughter with her advances in gymnastics.
If I can ever be of help to any of our patients, all you have to do is ask!
My career in dentistry began when I was in high school. Instead of getting a job at a grocery store or burger joint, I was offered an entry-level position in a dental office. I thought it was a pretty great environment and learned a lot. My favorite part of my job is being able to interact with patients and really get to know you! I love to hear what’s going well for someone.
I continued my education to become a radiologic technologist. I was able to help many patients, but I missed having the connection with patients. After a few years in that profession, I came back to home in dentistry.
Pinterest, music, running and concerts are just a few of my hobbies. I would love to be a better cook too! Maybe cooking classes are in my future. I have two dogs; a Boxer named Hera and a Husky named Nova. The way to my heart is through coffee! I am a coffee connoisseur and love a good cup of Joe.
I look forward to hearing your stories when you’re in the office next!
Administrative Support Specialists
Our Administrative Support Specialists are dedicated to helping our patients with scheduling appointments, dental insurance questions, billing and any other administrative items. They are team members at Advanced Dentistry South Florida and work from a satellite administrative office located in Michigan. One of our long time team members who relocated back to Michigan, Katie is the manager of this office. You're in excellent hands whether you speak with someone in our Delray Beach office or the Michigan office.
My name is Cortnie. I was born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I relocated to Saginaw after getting married to my wonderful husband in June 2018.
I have been in the dental industry for about 2 years now and I absolutely love it! I'm currently in school pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Healthcare Administration. I have 2 little boys who keep me on my toes and there's never a dull moment with them! When I'm not at work or studying, I love to spend time and make memories with my family and friends. I'm a bookworm, so I love reading, I also enjoy traveling, taking selfies and browsing Pinterest to find new recipes and DIY projects to do around my house.
I love what I do because knowing that you've made someone feel comfortable and welcome at the dentist is a great feeling. Being able to connect with patients and doing whatever I can to help them is my favorite part of the job!
I am a Superstar Support Specialist in addition to being the proud mother of one son, Jason. He is 22 years old and I couldn't have asked for a better son. When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. I also love a good laugh! They say laughter is the best medicine!
Some may also call me a sap! I love a good Hallmark Movie. The ones that pull on your heart strings are the best!
I have never met a dart board I didn't like. Not to worry, I don't play at work, but there is something therapeutic about throwing a dart at the board.
I have a passion for helping others and enjoy all aspects of the administrative side of dentistry. It always makes my day when we have worked to get an insurance claim paid or helping a patient schedule the appointment they need. I look forward to helping you with your dental needs too!
After living out west in California and Colorado, I returned back home to Michigan for “vacation” and never left! I missed our beaches and the natural beauty of Traverse City, Michigan, which I consider home.
Recently, I started attending Dental Assisting School and began working at Advanced Dentistry South Florida in our Michigan office. I consider myself incredibly blessed to be learning about the dental industry at school each day and then gaining valuable “real life” experience at work. I get to work with a lovely team each day here too. I was drawn to the dental field because I am able to contribute to others well-being and I have many opportunities to veer off to for the future as well. It’s exciting to see where this new chapter leads me next.
I have a wonderful son who is attending Idaho State University and whom I love visiting a couple times a year out west. I am happiest outdoors and am an avid walker, enjoy hiking, beaches, travel, classical music and the symphony as well as reading.
If I haven't already spoken with you on the phone, I look forward to helping you in the future!
I guess you can say dentistry is in my blood. My dad is a retired Dentist and I have been in the dental field for more than fifteen years. I have worked in many areas of a dental office including sterilization, dental assistant, receptionist, office manager and a licensed Registered Dental Hygienist. I am currently working in the Michigan administrative office for days a week and still practice as a hygienist also. I am very passionate about Dentistry and patient care and look forward to serving each and every one of our patients!
I have a wonderful husband and two young children. Easton is three and a half and Adelyn who is a year and a half. In addition, I have my four legged friend, Benzie who is a Golden Retriever. When I am not in the office, I am very busy with my family. Often times in the summer, you will find us camping on the weekends or up at the family cottage in Northern Michigan.
In my spare time, I love to bargain shop! I also enjoy reading and watching Netflix with my husband, Tyler.
If I can ever be of service to you, please let me know. I enjoy helping others!
Born and raised in Delray Beach, I have always had compassion for others and the passion to serve and help others. From the early age of 14, my first job was at Publix Supermarkets where I served for fifteen years. I have always been focused on providing excellent customer service. While working at Publix I decided it was time for a career change. I enrolled in night class at Concord Career Institute for Dental Assisting where I graduated in 2003. I have been in the dental field since then.
I love what I do because I thoroughly enjoy making a difference in other’s lives. I strive to inspire others and love to see when a patient achieves their dental health goals. I believe in our doctors and our practice and know that we always provide excellent care for our patients.
Each day, I strive to make someone else day. This makes my day better.
I am the mother to two children that I am very proud of. My son is a student at the University of West Georgia and my daughter is 3 years old and full of energy. She keeps me on my toes!
Whether you’re in the office or just in the community, I look forward to seeing our patients often!
Our Dental Assistants assist the Dentists with the clinical needs of each patient. They are dedicated to each patient's unique needs. From holding a hand to explaining more involved treatment, the dental assistants provide support in many ways.
As a native to Delray Beach, I love to watch my community grow. I am excited to be a part of the team here at Advanced Dentistry South Florida as we are an integral part to the community. My initial career choice was not dentistry. It was nursing. After working in a nursing home, I found that I have a greater appreciation for those that do.
I had an accident that involved a dental injury that was quite traumatic. I found a love of dentistry through my experience. I have been a dental assistant for about seven years and love seeing a patient smile. I enjoy giving back to the people in my community and to the dental industry that I am so passionate about.
I am also a very proud mom of two boys. I really enjoy watching my children grow into responsible adults that also enjoy helping their community. Recently, my family volunteered with ADSF when we went to Habitat for Humanity to help build a house. It was a fulfilling experience. I also love to see my son play football. I am the mom in the stands rooting for my boy!
For the patients that are afraid, I understand exactly how you feel! I have been there and will be here to hold your hand.
From the time I was one year old, I have called West Palm Beach home. My family moved here from Mexico and I love South Florida. I am currently a student in pre-dental studying to become a dentist one day. I have been working as a dental assistant for some time now and thoroughly enjoy what I do!
As a young child, I was very self-conscious about my teeth. They weren’t straight, and I was embarrassed to smile. I was given the option of having a Quinceanera or having braces done. My smile was so important that I chose to have braces!
My husband is in the military serving our wonderful country. We have a dog that I love to play with in addition to my other hobbies: make up, filming and decorating. I also love the art of dentistry, giving people confidence, connecting with people and making new friends.
My braces straightened my teeth and gave me the confidence I was missing! I hope each and every day that I can do something to help our patients achieve the smile of their dreams and give them confidence too!
I was born and raised in Germany where I also found a passion for dentistry. My aunt worked at a dental office and I was given the opportunity to spend time at her work. I spent much of my time over the summer before I graduated at her dental office. This is where I found a passion for what became my career. When I relocated to America, I continued my career in dentistry as a dental assistant. I have been serving as a dental assistant for over 21 years.
In my free time, I enjoy running and kickboxing. I have a husband and one daughter. I am very proud of the person my daughter has become. She volunteers quite often and even came to the volunteer days that ADSF hosts. We have built homes together, packaged food and cleaned up many beaches during our volunteer time. I also have a cat named Ethel and I am fluent in German.
I enjoy seeing new patients come in and have the treatment they need. Over my many years in dentistry, I have seen many different things. Seeing a patient that is apprehensive with dentistry overcome their fear and get the treatment that they need just makes my day!
Many moons ago, I began working in a dental office as a file clerk. Yes, back when we had paper charts, ledger cards and a giant appointment book! One day, the oral surgeon needed an extra hand and they called me to help. On that day, I found a passion for dentistry and have been working in dentistry ever since.
Over my twenty plus years in dentistry, I have worked with different doctors including general dentists, oral surgeons and endodontists. I enjoy helping patients navigate their treatment and being there every step of the way to hold a hand or answer questions along the way. I like helping patients, supporting them and caring for patients during these times.
I am also a mom to my teenage son. If you wonder where the wrinkles come from, just ask any mother of a teenager and they will explain. All kidding aside, my son is wonderful. I am blessed to have him. I like DIY projects and anything that involves construction. There is just something therapeutic about ripping apart a wall.
Whether you’re having a filling or all of your teeth removed and implants placed, I will be there every step of the way to lend a hand to hold.
A native to South Florida, I have seen many changes over the years to our community. I am proud to work in a dental office that cares about our community and giving back. I began my career in dentistry when a good friend of mine shared her love of dentistry and asked if I would come work in her dental office. I have been a dental assistant for about eighteen years and I love what I do and it’s the perfect fit for me.
I consider myself a “tooth artist” because in my position, I fabricate many temporary crowns for patients. The temporary crown is in place while the laboratory fabricates the permanent crown. While the laboratory makes the crown, it’s my job to make sure you leave with a tooth that looks as natural as possible that feels good too.
My husband, daughter and I are fans of the Miami Dolphins and we watch as many games as possible. I am also very proud of my daughter. She has a passion for dance and is very good at it. No boring recitals for me! They are all entertaining. We also enjoy volunteering and helping others. Some of the things we have done together as a family are building several homes with Habitat for Humanity, playing with dogs at Big Dog Ranch and many beach clean ups.
The dental assistants share 15 Things They Wish You Knew.
(More coming soon....)
The Dental Hygienist is the chief preventive provider of the Practice. They educate patients on their home care and provide recommendations to keep those pearly whites!
Family is very important to me. From the time I was young, my uncle who was a dentist encouraged me to go to dental hygiene school. Having a career that did not require me to work full time was important as I wanted to make sure I had time for my family. Once I learned more about dentistry and understanding the flexibility of a schedule, I decided dental hygiene was the perfect fit for me! My family and I moved to Florida from New York when I was about ten years old and I have enjoyed South Florida ever since! I have been practicing as a hygienist for 25 years and have been with Advanced Dentistry South Florida for 21 years!
I don’t just consider myself a dental hygienist, but rather a healthcare provider. For my patients, I am usually the only healthcare provider that spends an hour with each patient. During this time, I am dedicated to delivering the same type of care I would provide to my family. I like to see patients come back in after their non-surgical therapy for their check up and see the results. Now, of course I cannot do it all on my own. The patient must follow home care directions too. When a patient does, the results show!
I am the proud mom of three boys and have a great husband. Our family is very active in sports. My boys like lacrosse, soccer and football. I enjoy running in races, long distance runs, snow skiing and exercising in general. A few years ago, I even completed the Disney Dopey Run; which was a lifetime goal. I love spending time with my family and watching my boys grow.
I was born and raised in Shirley, Long Island, New York. My dad was a biology teacher. So, I guess you can figure where I got my love for science! When I was in high school, one of my dad’s students was in dental hygiene school. He suggested that I shadow the dental hygienist and I knew that was what I was going to do! I found a dental office that was willing to train me to be a dental assistant. Once I knew I was committed to becoming a dental hygienist, I took on the challenge to go to dental hygiene school.
I practiced in New York as a dental hygienist for about ten years before I moved to Florida. I have been working as a dental hygienist for more than ten years at Advanced Dentistry South Florida and am proud of all of the continuing education we go through. No one said it would be easy and it’s not, but it is fulfilling. I care about my patients and their health. It is very rewarding to see a patient come in that hasn’t been to the dentist in years and has “catch up” work to do. Once we remove all of the toxins and clean everything up, the results are amazing! I know that I do my part every day to help improve the health of each patient. I love to hear, “No one has ever shown me that before!” I guess being the daughter of a teacher, I have the love to teach also.
I have three beautiful children. They are the light of my life. They are smart, funny and certainly keep me on my toes! I do my best to guide them in the right direction as I believe the world needs more good people. In my spare time, I enjoy doing Pilates and aerial yoga.
I am a native Floridian and enjoy living in South Florida. I originally went to college for occupational therapy. I love helping people and I thought that was my calling. During my internship, I realized that once the patients were better, you would never see them again. Being that I am such a people person, I didn’t want a career in something that seemed to have shorter term relationships. I love getting to know my patients, understanding their needs and helping them get healthy.
I went back to school to become a dental assistant and completed my externship at Advanced Dentistry South Florida. I continued to dental hygiene school and became a dental hygienist. I absolutely love what I do! It brings me joy to see a patient time and time again and knowing that what I am doing is helping their total health. Most of our parents were not dentists or dental hygienists. If I can show my patients one tip or trick to help them with their home care and they do it; that makes my day!
My family is from Wisconsin and we are die hard Packers Fans! I also enjoy being a bit of a dare devil. Some of my hobbies include skydiving, line dancing and being in a kickball league.
I am glad to be a part of a team that is dedicated to our patient’s total health!
