I like welcoming patients to the office, hearing about their day, and making sure everyone feels comfortable here. I handle all administrative duties for Desai Dental, from managing our schedule to financials. My focus is always on personalized customer service, so everyone knows we care about them. When people are smiling at the end of a visit and tell me they’re looking forward to coming back, I know we’re doing a great job!
I’m originally from Puerto Rico and was raised in Massachusetts. I started working in the dental field as a dental assistant. Then I completed my X-ray and xpanded functions dental assisting certifications. These trained me to explain treatments and answer patient questions. We have a wonderful atmosphere, where patients are treated with respect and compassion.
I moved to Florida in 2012 in order to spend more time outdoors. Yes, I’m running from the cold weather! I enjoy spending my free time with my family and keep busy studying for my Bachelor of Arts in alternative medicine.
I enjoy talking with and getting to know our patients. It’s enjoyable to learn about their lives and to share stories of my own. While I’m cleaning a patient’s teeth, providing periodontal care, and taking X-rays, I pay attention to the person’s comfort. It’s important for people to feel relaxed and safe while they’re here, so I spend as much time as needed to make sure my patient is comfortable.
I’ve lived in Orlando for the last 15 years and love the Florida weather. I was born and raised in the Dominican Republic, where I attended dental school. Now I keep myself up to date on dental advances through continuing education courses. Desai Dental is a small, close-knit office where we all help each other in order to provide the best care and customer service. In my spare time, I love traveling and going to concerts.
I love taking care of our patients and making each feel comfortable. I set up the room, seat our patient, and prepare the person to see Dr. Desai. Staying chairside, I assist Dr. Desai while making sure our patient is still comfortable. I also handle office and laboratory duties. When someone thanks me at the end of a visit for making it easy for them, I’m thrilled!
I attended dental school in my home country of Colombia and worked as a dentist there before coming to the U.S. Here, I attended the Americare School of Nursing and became an expanded functions dental assistant and am certified in radiology. I love being part of Desai Dental. Our priority is taking care of our patients, and keeping them healthy and smiling.
My husband is also from Colombia, has an MBA, and is a Realtor. In my free time, I like to play basketball and I love to cook. Best of all, of course, is time with my husband and two daughters.
