Winter Park Staff

Alexandra

Dental Assistant

I love connecting with our patients and making sure every child feels welcome and safe. It’s important to grow up excited about taking care of one’s oral health! I work in the clinic: seating our patients, making sure they’re comfy, and explaining what’s going to happen. Keeping a kid calm is important! I assist the doctor during treatment and exams, take X-rays, and do my best to keep our patients smiling while they’re here.

I share my life with Kyle, my boyfriend, and our two adorable dogs. We enjoy the outdoors and love going fishing!

 

Aliana

Check-In at Winter Park Office

I am so excited to come to work and see all the happy smiles on our patients. Although some kids are frightened about visiting new places, our doctors and team members are so kind and comforting that kids soon learn seeing us is fun. I welcome patients and families, update and assist with their paperwork, and check them in. It’s fulfilling to work in a positive office that’s filled with smiles and laughter!

Originally from Atlanta, I mostly grew up in West Palm Beach. I have a pet hedgehog, Darcy, and as a huge Disney fan, I love living in Orlando!

 

Jami

Practice Team Lead

I love working closely with our administrative and clinical teams to ensure we’re running smoothly. This allows our doctors and staff to focus on what’s important: patient comfort and creating big, healthy, happy smiles! I enjoy working on accounts and researching and implementing processes so we’re efficient and deliver effective, stress-free care.

I was born and raised in Arkansas and love living in Florida. I’m married and have two children, plus a cat and a hamster. I’m a hard worker, love life, and love to sing on the praise team at my church and everywhere I go. My goal in life is to stay true to myself and to God and to raise my family to the best of my ability.

Check-Out at Winter Park Office

I love talking with and listening to children: they always have something cute — and often very funny — to share! It’s amazing to see clean, bright, and happy smiles at the end of visits and to have the kids and parents tell me they’re looking forward to coming back. I check out patients, schedule future visits, and collect payments. I also go over consent-for-treatment forms with parents.

Born and raised in New York, I moved to Orlando when I was 15. I have a loving husband, three beautiful young ladies, and two dogs. I’m very close to my mother and take care of her when she needs me. In 2015, my husband and I decided to open our own acoustical ceilings business and it’s going great. I’m a family person and love sharing everything I do with my family.

 

Mariana

Dental Assistant

I really love working with kids. They bring so much energy and happiness to our office! It’s the best feeling when they tell me they like visiting the dentist and give us hugs at the end of their visits! I bring patients into the treatment area and collect the information necessary for the doctor’s evaluation. Working chairside, I assist the doctor with the procedure, but my focus is always on making sure our patient is comfortable.

I’ve been happily married since 2005 and have two young daughters who love me every day. My family is my biggest blessing! I also have a beautiful puppy. I like to eat healthy, go to the gym, and, most of all, being with my loved ones.

 

Yesmarie

Dental Assistant

I love being surrounded by children all day! They all have their own personalities, and I love how they brighten the office with their stories and laughter. It’s fun getting to know them and learning what’s important in their lives. I work in the clinic: I seat patients, make sure they’re comfortable, and talk with them about what we’ll be doing. I also take X-rays, assist the doctors with exams and cleanings, and present and review treatment plans to parents.

I’m the proud mother of a young son, Noah. We live with Noah’s father and our dog, Tiger. Together, we enjoy outings to explore new places.

 

Yomayra

Winter Park Team Lead and Accounts Manager

I love being able to work and interact with parents and their children. It’s wonderful to be part of a team that provides positive dental care and delivers health-filled, beautiful smiles! I manage our front office and supervise the administrative team, to ensure we function perfectly so patients and parents don’t have to worry. I also handle our accounts receivable.

I was born in Puerto Rico and raised here in Florida. Justin is my wonderful husband and I have three amazing children: Christopher, Christiana, and Yanley. I also have three great dogs. Outside of work, I love to keep busy: going out to eat and shop, and being with my loved ones.

Amy

Lead Assistant

I love helping kids feel comfortable about coming to the dentist. We have such a fun, supportive environment that even the most timid patient soon relaxes and starts talking and laughing with us. I also enjoy supporting our parents and reassuring them that their child is in caring hands. I provide chairside assistance during different procedures. I also perform gentle cleanings, take X-rays, and place sealants. In addition, I handle our inventory and sterilize instruments.

I love eating, shopping, going to the beach, traveling, and, of course, I love doing these things with my kids! I have two young sons who are the lights of my life. We don’t currently have any pets but are looking forward to adopting one soon!

Lake Nona Staff

Ana

Insurance Coordinator

I love working in a supportive office that’s filled with smiles and children’s laughter. We have a great environment, and even the most timid child soon learns we’re safe and is talking and joking with us! I work closely with parents on insurance matters: ensuring they are able to maximize their benefits. In addition to verifying eligibility, I run the daily reports, track claims, and maintain the information in our computers.

I’m mom to a sassy and wonderfully remarkable little girl. I love our time together! I enjoy traveling and hope to see Greece someday. Right now, though, I’m thinking about going back to school to study radiology.

 

Ashley

Front Desk

I love talking with children: making them smile and helping each realize that visiting the dentist is a fun adventure! I also like assisting parents understand treatment, helping with paperwork, and making sure they have the answers they need. I’m the first person to greet families as they arrive and love seeing those smiling faces! I check patients in, schedule visits, accept payments, and check out patients. With my experience as a dental assistant, I’m glad to answer questions about care, too.

Born and raised in Lake County, I now live in Orlando with my husband and our Golden Retriever, Shadow. I have two handsome nephews and one beautiful niece: being an aunt is the best experience! I treasure time with my family and friends, especially if we’re in the mountains or someplace tropical, like Key West.

 

Celena

Dental Assistant

It’s rewarding to be part of a great practice, where we make sure children grow up with beautiful, healthy smiles! I especially love working with patients who arrive afraid and helping them learn that nothing bad happens here. I seat patients and make sure they’re comfortable in the chair. Patiently and using age-appropriate terms, I explain what we’ll be doing and what they will experience. I take X-rays, clean teeth, apply fluoride, and assist the doctor with various procedures. My most important task is making sure patients are smiling when we’re done!

 

Krystal

Accounts Payable

I love being part of a team that helps children smile. Our doctors and dental assistants take time to talk with patients and parents during visits. They make sure everyone knows what’s going on and is comfortable. My children come here and love visiting the dentist! I help make sure our business runs smoothly by assisting with accounting and administrative duties.

My children, Elijah and Gideon, are the light of my life. We love building with Legos, playing board and card games, and reading. As a family we enjoy participating in activities with Nathaniel’s Hope, which supports children with various difficulties, and UCF CARD, which supports children with autism.

 

Mari

EOB Specialist

I love seeing how children immediately warm up to and feel safe with their doctor and our team members. Everyone here tries hard to connect with patients, so it’s wonderful when a boy or girl relaxes and starts to smile and even joke with us! I keep our clinical team organized and on track, to make the day run smoothly for our dental assistants. I’m also in charge of entering EOBs.

 

Maria

Dental Assistant

I love when I’m able to help a kid feel safe and see them relax and laugh with us. Sometimes children are scared of new places and things. Our doctors and staff are patient and kind. We work with each child to help them overcome their worries. It’s a great feeling when kids tell us they’re looking forward to coming back! I prepare treatment rooms, take and develop X-rays, sterilize instruments, and track our inventory. I also educate patients and parents about taking care of their smile.

My husband’s name is Daniel and my kids are Daniella and Alejandro. We have a dog, Sebastian. I love baseball, especially when my son is playing, and gardening and reading. I’m a member of the worship group at my church, too.

 

Mayerlin

Treatment Coordinator

I love having a job that lets me work with children and parents. I love helping children feel better about their smiles and themselves and watching each child grow up with great oral health. I educate and work with new and existing patients so they understand what’s happening in their mouth and what we need to do. Along with our doctors and team, I strive to make every visit fun, carefree, and educational. We want people to look forward to seeing us and know that we look forward to seeing them!

My husband Cesar, our two daughters Carolina and Alexandra, and I live in Saint Cloud. Our free time is spent living life to the fullest, as a family. Cesar and I are so proud of our daughters and enjoy going to their gymnastics and swimming competitions and watching them grow.

 

Roselynn

Team Lead and Surgery Scheduler

I love knowing that, through my work, I can make a difference in a child’s life. Every day I see before-and-after photos of our patients and know I helped make their smile brighter, healthier, and happier. Our doctors and staff have a common goal: to provide the best possible care for each child. I manage daily operations, book cases at the hospital, set up appointments, submit insurance pre-authorizations, and handle claims.

I am a mother of two beautiful children. Angel is my son and Isabelle is my daughter. I love my time with my children and husband, and my three miniature Schnauzers! We like going to the beach, spending the day at the parks, and being together.

 

Serai

Dental Assistant

I love seeing patients who start their visit feeling “scared” of being at the dentist leave with a smile and excited to come back. Our doctors and team are gentle and kind. Each of us does everything possible to keep children comfortable, engaged, and happy during visits. I work in the clinic, and help our doctors as they care for patients.

I’m currently studying at the University of Central Florida, in addition to working here. I love living in Florida and, when I can find the time, you’ll find me relaxing at the beach!

 

Jenny

Dental Assistant

My job consists of helping children understand the importance of oral hygiene in fun and interactive ways! I love being able to work with kids, helping them get through their fears of coming to the dentist, and making the dentist a fun and pleasant experience for them.

I’m a mom of two handsome boys and I’m married to the love of my life, Milton. I love to cook healthy meals for my family and play with my kids and husband. Exercising is one of my top priorities and I love eating healthy!

 

Luis

Dental Assistant

At Pediatric Dental Group, the top priority is our patients. My role as dental assistant entails taking and developing X-rays, assisting the doctors during procedures, and educating patients and parents about different oral health strategies. The most essential part of my duties is creating the best experience possible for our patients by ensuring they feel comfortable and have a pleasant visit.

I started my career in the dental field back in 2010. I enjoy working with children and being a part of their healing process, so I became a part of the Pediatric Dental Group back in 2014. Here, we share many values to ensure the highest quality of care offered to our patients: integrity, experience, teamwork, and we do it all with great smiles.
