Meet The Staff


Ashley D.

Insurance Coordinator
In 2019 I moved to North Carolina with my husband and daughter. I was born and raised in southern California. I have worked in the dental field for 16 years! As much as I love dental, I have been working on my Masters in social work. Outside of work I love reading, traveling, and spending time with my family!


Maritza Alvarado
Front Desk 
Buenas Tardes! My name is Maritza, I also go by Mary or Mars. I like to consider myself a pretty active person. Outside of work you can catch me at the gym or running outdoors. I’m happily married to my prince charming who I enjoy doing everything with, excet skateboarding! 
I love spending time with my family and enjoy being a social butterfly who has the most energy with a cup of coffee. Hablo español, así que a su orden mi gente linda.


Giselle Herrera
Front Desk
¡Hola! My name is Giselle. I am a daughter and sister in a hispanic household. My face will be one of the first you see when walking into the office. ¡Si! también hablo español! Así que llame y yo contestare. This is my first time working in the dental industry and I’m liking it. Outside of work, I love spending time with family and my loving boyfriend. I love singing, but only in my room! My dream one day is to travel and visit a lot of new places. Stop by and say hello, I would love to see your smile!


Melissa T.

Dental Assistant II
Come one, come all! It is the Queen of Coffee and the lover of fall. I live in a tiny house with my four legged fur baby, Macie. With the sand between my toes and the sound of waves crashing into each other, I find peace as well as my happy place. I love spending time with my friends and family. Especially when we go on an adventure. I am a beast in the kitchen. Baking and cooking is my name and throwing parties is my thang! I love to travel and try new things. Even though I’m always down for an adventure, I love to have spa days!


Ashley R.

Dental Assistant II
You know what they say, blondes have more fun! My name is Annette Ashley. I was brought to you by the beautiful island of Puerto Rico as well as the bustling city of Queens, New York. I’m a grandma for my love of books and baking. I used to be a pediatric dental assistant but root canals stole my heart. Now, I’ve been facing the endo world for one year and hopefully many more to come. So, have no fear! Your friendly neighborhood Spanish speaking assistant is here to help!


Rena P.

Dental Assistant II
Kalimera! If you haven’t noticed my olive skin… I’m Greek! I married my prince charming and live in Kannapolis. I’ve been working in the dental world 4 years and love bringing smiles to people’s faces. When I’m not in my scrubs, all I wear is PINK! I’m a traveler who loves searching for all the shiny places on the world, but you’ll see me by your side as we save your beautiful smile! 


Carolina H.

¡Buenas! My name is Carolina. I was born in Mexico but I have lived in North Carolina my whole life! In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, watching Korean dramas and listening to music.

Since l was little, I’ve always wanted to work in dentistry and here I am! Yay! ¡También hablo español y estoy aquí para ayudar!

Katelyn R.

Hola! I moved here in January of 2022 from Puerto Rico and have had an awesome time in North Carolina. This is my first time working in dental, but that’s okay because I bring a lot of creativity to our team! I love interacting with our referring offices and engaging with our social following. Outside of work I love art, food, and dancing!
