Meet The Team



Stephanie

Registered Dental Hygienist

I graduated from Santa Fe Community College in Gainseville, Florida and  have been practicing dental hygiene for more than 24 years, including 2  separate occasions that I lived and worked in Switzerland. Last year (January 2019)  I received my license to administer local anesthetic from the University of Florida. 

 

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 15 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 10 year old Silkypoo named Bingo, who most of my patients know by name!


Holly

Registered Dental Hygienist

Holly began her dental career in Connecticut as a Dental Assistant in 1989, serving in practices specializing in endodontics, oral surgery, and general dentistry. In 2007, Holly became a Registered Dental Hygienist following her graduation from Tunxis Community College in Farmington, CT where she was recognized by Crest and Oral B with the Distinguished Clinical and Community Service Award for her outstanding patient care in the community.  Holly worked for a well-respected dental practice in Connecticut where she excelled as a member of that team. She is licensed to practice in Florida and Connecticut, and maintains certification in CPR & AED procedures by the American Heart Association, as well as certifications in radiation health & safety, and infection control.

 

   Holly moved to Florida in 2016 and continued her Dental Hygiene career on a part-time basis. Her commitment to excellence and her high level of patient care is exceptional. Holly is devoted to taking time to help educate her patients about their specific individual needs and she continues to stay contemporary in her vocation through advanced education as a professional in the hygiene field to provide the best possible care for her patients.

 

   Holly has two adult sons and an adorable grandson. She resides in Port Orange with her loving husband of 30 years, along with their golden retriever. 


Julie

Registered Dental Hygienist

I graduated from Darton State college in Albany, Ga., in 1982, and have been practicing Dental Hygiene for 38 years. I have been in the Daytona Beach area since 1986, and have had the pleasure to work for Dr. Dean, part time, for almost two years.

I am committed to providing thorough care to my patients, and have always enjoyed building trusting relationships with them. I want them to feel comfortable and relaxed while in our office, leaving with teeth that feel great!

I have been married to my husband Mark for 32 years, and have two wonderful step daughters, and three grandchildren. I also have a Rat Terrier named Burdie.

In my spare time, I enjoy walking, gardening, cooking, and watching sports, as well as spending time with family and friends


Natalie

Dental Assistant

Hello, my name is Natalie and I am an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant, (EFDA) and a CDA (Certified Dental Assistant). Let me tell you a bit about myself and my career in dentistry.

I am a Pittsburgh, Pa native and have been in the dental field since 1994.

My license as an EFDA permits me to perform additional technical functions and procedures as a dental assistant.  I am qualified to place both amalgam and composite fillings as well as fabricating temporary crowns.

I have both clinical experience as well as educational experience.  I was employed as a EFDA instructor in Pittsburgh at the Bradford School, where I educated post-secondary students.  After 10 years of employment with them, the school had decided to close altogether which left me with a decision to make.

So, I went back into the clinical field full time in Pennsylvania, but knowing I wanted a change.  I decided to take a leap of faith and move myself the state of Florida where I was looking for a complete change both personally and professionally.  Currently, I live in Daytona Beach and absolutely love it!

When I am not working, I love to spend time on the beach, enjoying the outdoors, and listening to music. I am an artist too. My media is mostly pencil and charcoals. I like to draw portraits as well as fabricating all types of cool items out of resin. 

I have truly found my new “dental” home here at the office with Dr. Dean and her amazing staff!  As well as the great sunny state of Florida! 



Christina

Practice Administrator

I attended Everest University in Jacksonville and have been working in dentistry for over nine years now. During my time at school I became student ambassador. I have EFDA certification, as well as certifications in CPR and radiology. What I enjoy most about my role at Dr. Dean’s practice is getting to make a positive difference for each patient’s smile. 

I’m originally from Long Island NY which makes me a huge NY Rangers fan. Outside of work you’ll find me spending time with my family. We enjoy going the beach and finding new places to eat at Flagler beach. But my favorite downtime is cheering on my son at his T-ball games. 


Johanna

Office Manager

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. 


Megan

Social Media Marketing Manager

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. 


Heather

Treatment Plan Coordinator

I am an Ormond native. I began my career in dentistry in 2003 following my graduation from Seabreeze High School. I have worked in several offices specializing in esthetics, periodontics and orthodontics. In 2014 I became an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant so while you may see me at the front desk, I also assist from time to time.

I enjoy working with patients of all ages, but my true passion is pediatrics. I love educating children and providing a safe, fun dental experience. I want to set them up for a lifetime of healthy dental habits and I believe that starts with the experience and care they receive at our office. I have been with Dr. Dean since July of 2020 and am so happy to be a part of this incredible, caring team!

I am a mom of 3 young boys and have been married to my husband for 8 years. We have a zoo at home with 3 cats and 2 dogs, but enjoy our crazy, busy life. When I’m not working you can find me enjoying time with my family and friends at the beach, park or anything outdoors. 


Rio

Dental Assistant

I am an expanded functions dental assistant (EFDA) and I love making a difference in our community.
From the moment I met Dr. Dean and the team I knew I met my dental family.
Everyday working alongside them and building relationships with our patients brings me joy!
I strive to keep a positive work environment and help our patients feel comfortable with every visit.
When I'm not working, I'm typically on the beach, doing yoga with my daughter.
