I was born and raised in the City of Rostov-on-Don, Russia. I graduated from College in Russia with a Civil Engineer Diploma. I have been married for 13 years and have a 12 year old daughter. In 2001 we moved to the United States of America.

I decided to get a new profession in Dentistry and graduated from Central Florida Institute. I had been working as a Dental Assistant for 4 years and then my husband advised me to continue my education in Dentistry. In 2009 I graduated from Saint Pete College with a Degree in Dental Hygiene.

I really enjoy my work because I have a chance to help people to keep their smile or be able to smile again!

I’m originally from Brunswick, Georgia but have lived in the Tampa Bay area for 13 years. I sort of fell into dentistry when I moved here and I’m so glad I did. It was a passion I didn’t know I had. I was active as student secretary for the state and went on to become a delegate as well. I have enjoyed playing a large part of the Back to School Care Fair each year.

I am married and have two beautiful children, Hunter and Savannah that keep me busy. We spend our weekends at the beach, going to concerts or just barbecues with friends. I love learning new things and am very happy to work for Clearwater Family Dental where they are all about cutting edge dentistry.

I’m originally from El Salvador, Central America, where I graduated as a General Dentist in 1993, then traveled to Mexico City to obtain my master’s degree in Orthodontics and Dento-Facial Orthopedics. Upon my return to San Salvador, I started my own practice, “Smile Center” and kept it for more than 17 yrs.

Arriving in the US in 2013, I started working again in the dental field.  In 2016, I was fortunate to meet Dr. Paul and Ginger through one of his associates. I was very attracted to all the innovative and cutting-edge techniques while incorporating a holistic approach, meeting the patient’s necessities under a friendly and happy environment.  In 2018, I obtained my Florida Dental Hygiene License. My passion is to treat and take care of patients, emphasizing preventative care with dedicated and compassionate professionalism.

On a personal note, I’ve been married for 20 yrs. and have two sons, Ricky (20) and Alex (15). I love to spend time with friends and family. También HABLO ESPAÑOL!
