Sarah T. – Practice Administrator

Sarah is originally from Algeria and actually speaks three languages: English, Arabic, and French! She has been working in oral healthcare for well over a decade now. Today, she always goes the extra mile to help our patients have great experiences.

When Sarah isn’t busy at the office, one of her biggest hobbies is going out to eat. She loves trying different foods and brand-new restaurants!

Jazz – Marketing/ Public Relations Manager

Jazz does a great job of planning our events and establishing great relationships with referring dentists! She always goes the extra mile to earn their trust, and meeting new people when visiting doctors’ offices is fun for her too.

Outside of working hours, Jazz has a precious baby girl, stepdaughter, and a fiancé who is a hardcore Cowboys fan. She’s a Washington fan so you can probably imagine how their Sundays go. As for hobbies, she spends her free time hanging out with family, trying new restaurants, traveling, and curling up with a warm blanket and good book.

Lucia – Office Manager (Burke Location)

Lucia’s dental career spans over seven years so far, and she truly couldn’t ask for better coworkers and patients! The office has a great environment – plus, being able to make a potentially high-anxiety situation more calming for patients is always a good day in her eyes!

Away from work, Lucia spends lots of quality time with her beautiful family. She is an avid workout enthusiast, yogi, and runner. Some of her favorite hobbies include practicing healthy living, discovering new recipes, going to concerts, and being outdoors.

Julia – Office Manager (Reston Location)

Julia has been a part of our dental team for a handful of years now, with hopefully many more to come in the future. For her, the best part of this job by far is getting to see the patients leave the office clearly relieved, whether they’ve just removed a tooth that was causing pain or replaced missing teeth with state-of-the-art dental implants.

Outside of the office, Julia is a newlywed and loves spending quality time with her family. She also enjoys biking and reading fiction – especially mysteries!

Diana – Office Manager (Alexandria Location)

Diana has been with our practice since 2018, and she has nearly a decade of dental experience overall. She went to college for healthcare administration and enjoys putting our patients’ minds at ease by answering their questions.

Diana was born in Bolivia and is married with a three-year old. She is also the oldest of five siblings, so a lot of her off time is spent with her big, loving family. Her hobbies include reading and writing fiction as well as learning languages—she is currently mastering her third, French!

Becca – Implant Coordinator

Becca has been a part of our office for over 12 years now, and she loves the high quality of patient care everyone provides here. Working closely with referrals and building meaningful relationships along the way is always a rewarding experience for her!

At home, Becca is the proud mother of three. She was a collegiate athlete in her younger years and still stays active by competing in the annual Army Ten Miler and other various 5/10k’s. She also enjoys taking her daughters to horseback riding lessons.

Melissa – Implant Coordinator/ Surgical Assistant

Melissa actually wanted to be a teacher at first, but when she moved to Virginia after school, she began helping out in an oral surgery practice and immediately fell in love! Today, she has been a part of our team for over a decade. She really enjoys educating our patients about all of their treatment options, especially when it comes to dental implants. It’s also so fulfilling to help new arrivals, who often are afraid and in pain, leave with a big, new smile on their face.

At home, Melissa and her husband (who is also in the dental field) have two amazing children named Aidan and Amilah. When she has time for herself, she enjoys reading and dabbling in all types of crafts. Pinterest is her biggest guilty pleasure.

Fabianne – Lead Surgical Assistant

Fabianne has been working in the dental world for well over a decade now. For her, the best part about working here is that everyone feels like a family! She loves the strong bond the staff has and how it translates to patients too.

Fabianne is the oldest of four siblings and is close with her parents. In her free time, you can often find her trying new restaurants (especially sushi places) and going dancing – from salsa to ballroom to line dancing, she can keep up with the best of them.

Holly – Lead Surgical Assistant

Holly has been a part of our team since 2015, and she likes that her job allows her to help people get through a particularly stressful time as smoothly as possible. She has an associate's degree from Northern Virginia Community College as well as a bachelor’s in health science from Marymount University.

Holly’s hometown is Centreville, VA, and she likes to spend her free time trying new restaurants and traveling as much as possible. One interesting fact about Holly—she can play the viola!

Lauren A. – Lead Surgical Assistant

Lauren joined our practice in 2018, and she has over six years of experience in dentistry. She attended nursing school at the College of Southern Maryland and has certifications in BLS, ACLS, DAANCE (dental anesthesia assistant national certification), and phlebotomy. She says that her coworkers feel like family, and she loves how everyone comes together to provide stellar care for our patients.

Originally from La Plata, MD, Lauren comes from a large family, and she is married with one son, Jackson. Her favorite things to do on the weekend include laying on the beach, finding new places to eat, and watching any sport (especially football—go Ravens!).

Lauren H. – Patient Coordinator (Reston Location)

Lauren is a 12-year dental veteran who joined our practice in 2017. For her, the best thing about her job is working with a group of amazing professionals that make a positive difference in our patients’ lives.
