Mira, Office Manager
Originally from Russia, Mira has been working in the dental field for over eight years now, and she is also currently preparing for her MBA studies in Healthcare Administration. One of her favorite parts of managing is filling the shoes of different roles in the dental office, which allows her to lead by showing and completing tasks as a team! Collaborating with a variety of people each day gives her valuable opportunities to grow her communication and leadership skills. Outside of work, she spends her free time promoting environmental awareness, learning to play the piano, drawing, and playing tennis.
Amie, Hygiene Coordinator
Amie has been with our team since 2019, and she loves interacting with our wonderful patients and seeing them become so excited about their new smiles! She attended both Montgomery College and Fortis College for her education and has her certification in medical billing and coding. She hails from a large, over-the-top Gambian-American family that includes five children, one of which is her twin sister, who she does almost everything with. Her other hobbies include cooking, trying new foods, shopping, and styling hair on a part-time basis.
Vanesa, Billing & Insurance Coordinator
Vanesa has been working in the dental field for over six years now, and she loves interacting with patients while being able to provide them with plenty of valuable information regarding their dental insurance and benefits. Born in Mexico, she’s lived in Maryland ever since the age of four. She has one sister and two brothers, all of whom are younger. She’s a very family-oriented person! In her free time, she enjoys hanging out with her loved ones and trying new foods/restaurants.
