Meet The Team

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. 

Johanna Naranjo

Practice Administrator

Johanna joined Dr. Dean's team on September 2013. She is the first person 
you will see when you walk through the doors of our office. She loves the 
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, 
spending time with her family and her lovable Great Pyrenees. 

Linda Blanco

Dental Assistant

I am a graduate from the Dental Assisting Program at Rockland Community College in New York, and a graduate from the Expanded Functions Program at the University of Florida. I have been in the dental field for over 40 years, and I love taking care of our patients to make them feel comfortable during their treatment.

I love surf fishing and an occasional game of golf. I’m also a member of the American Legion Ladies Auxiliary here in Ormond Beach, Florida and I volunteer to help with fundraising to help our veterans.

I feel very honored and fortunate to be working with Dr. Sara Dean and her wonderful team.
