Nadia, Dental Hygienist
Ever since she was a child, Nadia had the desire to be involved in the dental field. She saw how she would be able to help others, and that looked very rewarding! With this in mind, she attended the Palm Beach State College dental hygiene program. Since then, she has been helping to perfect people’s smiles for 4 years. As a Dental Hygienist, she provides each patient with exceptional, personal care. She also makes sure the office is clean and orderly for each patient that comes in and helps each one of them schedule their next appointment. What she loves about her job is the ability to educate her patients on their oral health and how it impacts every aspect of their overall wellness. She also loves learning new things form her coworkers. When she’s not in the office, she loves to spend time with her husband, puppy, family, and friends. You can also find her on the beach adding to her food blog!
Ivette, Dental Assistant
Since 1989, Ivette has spent every day learning something new about dentistry, and the field has always been interesting to her. She received her dental training from Louis Lasky Medical and Dental Center in Lindenhurst, New York, and has always been driven to help people. If dentistry wasn’t her passion, she’d likely find herself as a nurse, because she enjoys providing care to others and ensuring they are comfortable. At our office, Ivette assists Dr. Staller with preparing for procedures, taking x-rays, and explaining processes to the patient. She enjoys being a part of a professional team that’s committed to great dental care. She’s proud of the work that Dr. Staller does, especially in cosmetic dentistry, and loves how each patient is given the dentist’s full attention and never made to feel rushed. Ivette volunteers with her church, packing meals for the less fortunate, and loves quality time with her children, exercising, and yoga.
Karen, Dental Hygienist
Karen started her professional career at Glassboro State College and Camden County College, NJ, where she received her bachelor’s in Communications and her associates in Applied Sciences, respectively. After completing her education, she wanted to pursue a career in the healthcare field for one purpose – to be able to help people.
