Meet Our Friendly Staff

Michelle Amiel, joined our team in 2007.  She holds a degree in Expanded Dental Hygiene and has been practicing since 1977.  Today she applies her years of clinical experience as our Practice Manager and Treatment Coordinator.  Working together with our entire team of doctors, she is our point person to help our patients embrace their best course of treatment.  Michelle, who was unhappy with her own smile as a child, has always been intrigued with beautiful smiles.  "I hated the pain I associated with my childhood experiences at the dentist and just want to serve others with empathy."  Her interests include all things related to health and wellness, including yoga and organic gardening.

Kim Gallo, a Patient Relations Specialist, joined our team in 2009.  It's her beautiful smile that will greet you when you first enter our reception area.  As a graduate of the esteemed Rizzieri Aveda School for Beauty and Wellness, she has enjoyed over 15 years professional experience in the health and beauty industry. It's this experience that led to her understanding the key role that quality oral care plays in one's overall well-being. "Beauty," she acknowledges, "starts from the inside out." When not serving our family of patients, Kim enjoys volunteer work with Locks of Love and The American Cancer Society's Look Good, Feel Better Program.

Christi Byers, Patient Coordinator and Front Desk Team Leader, has nearly 20 years experience in the Dental Industry.  While she is proudly credentialed as a Certified Dental Assistant, she finds working one-on-one with our patients at the front desk is even more rewarding than serving them chair-side.  The combination of her education, clinical experience, and dental administration skills make her the ideal patient advocate.  "I love helping people and truly love my job," says Christi.  In her free time, she loves to read, sing, and spend time with her beautiful daughter.

Erika Tracy, Erika, a Certified Dental Assistant, graduated from Dental Assisting School in 2008.

An avid sports fan and outdoors girl, Erika enjoys fishing, boating, and rooting for the Miami Dolphins.

Marissa Camadona, Marissa Camadona is a graduate of Tallahassee Community College and Florida Atlantic University. She holds a degree in Dental Hygiene and is a Registered Dental Hygienist.

"I'm excited to be part of an advancing profession that is changing and improving the lives of people everyday." As our Clinical Team Manager, Susie is proud to be able to teach and share her knowledge with future assistants, helping them to achieve the same level of proficiency she now enjoys. She is an active mom and grandmother who practices what she preaches when it comes to health and wellbeing.

Yvette Batista, Yvette Batista is not only a Registered Dental Hygienist; she is also a trained dentist, having earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree from the Universidad Catolica Madre Y Maestra.

When not serving her patients, Yvette loves dancing and playing the piano.
