Meet The Team

Deanna Banks

Registered Dental Hygienist

I worked many years as an orthodontic assistant for Dr. 
Thomas Cartledge. During my time in the orthodontic office, DBCC started a 
two year Dental Hygiene program. After getting all my pre-requisites classes 
I started in the third class, graduating in 2000 at the age of 48 years 
young. 

I have worked in this office for 15 years. First working for 
Dr. Robert Burch, then with Dr. Dean when she bought the practice in 2007. 

My intentions have always been to give my patients the best 
care possible. I listen to my patients and give them advice to aid in their 
homecare. I am interested in my patient's well being dentally and 
personally, since caring for many of them for so many years, they feel like 
family. I like to think I give personalized care, working with each 
patient's likes and dislikes to make them as comfortable as possible while 
still giving good care. 


Stephanie Blankenship

Registered Dental Hygienists

I graduated from Santa Fe Community College in Gainseville, Florida and 
have been practicing dental hygiene for more than 20 years, including 2 
separate occasions that I lived and worked in Switzerland.

I am dedicated to delivering honest and thorough dentistry 
to each and every patient I see. I am comfortable working with patients of 
all ages and believe strongly in the importance of teaching children good 
dental habits from an early age. I have been employed at this office for 11 
years and have worked specifically for Dr. Dean since she bought the 
practice in 2007. Our office has all of the latest technology and Dr. Dean 
allows the time I need to treat each patient efficiently and effectively. I 
believe in education, for myself and my patients! 

Outside of the office I enjoy the great outdoors. Traveling 
and running are two of my favorite things to do. I have a very close 
relationship with my family and am a proud mom to a 6 year old Silkypoo 
named Bingo, who most of my patients know by name! 


Megan Donawa

Practice Administrator

On my very first day of internship in 2016, I knew 
this office was the place for me. Before school even ended I was lucky 
enough to become officially employed with Dr. Sara Dean. Every day is an 
exciting adventure working with Dr. Dean and our staff. I couldn't imagine myself 
serving a better community here in Ormond Beach. I strive to help patients feel 
comfortable, educated and important as they should. On the days 
I am not at work I enjoy playing with my puppy, Oliver, and spending time 
with my loved ones.

opportunity to greet every patient when they arrive and say good-bye before 
they leave. Johanna has been in the dental field for over 10 years and 
enjoys every aspect of dentistry. She loves helping people and getting to 
know our patients. Johanna is a native New Yorker who enjoys baking,
