Every person on our team is friendly and caring, from the sweet voice who answers the phone to the bubbly hygienist who cleans your teeth, to the compassionate dental assistant who holds your hand during treatment. We put the “care” in dental care!
I've been practicing dental hygiene since 2010, and I joined Wakefield Dental Care in 2020. I love building a bond with my patients and educating them about their oral health, and how it can relate to systemic diseases.
My husband AJ and I got married in 2008, and we have three furbabies: Lukus and Kullen are English Mastiffs, and Zoey is a Blue Heeler. Kullen is a favorite in local dog shows, and he has the blue ribbons to show for it!
Outside of work, I enjoy cooking, riding horses, house projects. I love spending time at Lake Gaston with my mom, and I love hiking and backpacking trips in the mountains with my husband. The mountains are my happy place!
I have been a dental hygienist since 2001, and my passion is helping people improve their oral health. It makes my day, when I can make people smile!
During the 15 years I was at my previous office, I enjoyed establishing relationships with my patients. I look forward to doing more relationship-building here at Wakefield Dental Care!
My husband and I have two energetic children, and tons of critters! We have everything from cats and dogs, to horses and chickens--even a turkey named Larry! I like to spend as much time as possible at the beach, and my family enjoys visiting national parks--we're hoping to see them all!
Patient Care Coordinator
My favorite part of working at Wakefield Dental Care is establishing a relationship with our patients, and being the first person to greet everyone when they come into our office. I enjoy the team work in our office, and we are very much a family.
I came to Wakefield Dental Care with experience in the Marine Corps, and also in the veterinary field, but I've always been interested in dentistry. I just like smiling--smiling's my favorite!
Outside of work, I enjoy home renovations, gardening, drip painting, calligraphy, and all sorts of crafty things. I love animals, and I have two dogs named Jessie and Titan. I'm a hockey fan, and I cheer for the Pittsburgh Penguins! LET'S GO PENS!
I enjoy meeting our new patients along with catching up with those who are established with our office. I think Wakefield Dental Care has the best team all around. We always have a good time at work, keeping each other and our patient family smiling and laughing!
I verify insurance benefits for our patients and follow up on their claims, ensuring they are able to maximize their benefits. I also greet patients and check them in and out.
My husband and I have been married for over 23 years and have two kids, both of whom are in college: one in the mountains, and one at the beach. I keep busy with social activities, my favorite being a wine tasting club with friends. I enjoy watching reality TV, mani/pedi’s, and hanging out with my family and friends.
I enjoy interacting with our patient family, whether that’s on the phone, at the front desk, or even in the clinical area. Sometimes I’ll just pop into a treatment room to say “Hi” and catch up with someone I haven’t seen for a while!
I work with a great group of people: Dr. Magno is not only my husband, but a really wonderful, caring person – toward his patients and his team! Everyone on our team genuinely likes each other, so our office has a family vibe to it and I’m so grateful for each family member here – our team and our patients!
I handle a little bit of everything at Wakefield Dental Care: administration, front desk, and even some clinical duties as needed. I was a dental assistant for many years, and that clinical experience allows me to help wherever I am needed in the office.
Dr. Magno and I got married in 2009. We have two beautiful children, Bryson and Sydney, who keep me constantly on-the-go! We also have three furbabies who are all rescues. In my free time, I enjoy reading, shopping, pedicures, and singing in my church choir.
Dental Assistant II
It is always a pleasure to help patients, making sure they are comfortable, informed, and at ease during procedures. I like being able to relieve worry or pain and have people leave the office with bright and confident smiles! Team work makes the dream work and this office gives it 100%! We all support each other like family and are dedicated to our patient family!
I handle a range of clinical duties, including assisting Dr. Magno with fillings, crowns, bridges, implant restoration, and impressions. I also provide preventive care, including X-rays, coronal polishing, sealants, and I assist Dr. Magno with Invisalign® treatment. Additionally, I take care of sterilization, inventory, and I make sure we are up to date with our OSHA requirements.
I have been blessed by God himself with an incredible man in my life, along with our beautiful children. They keep me on my toes and provide an abundance of love, support, and the occasional headache. We enjoy exploring and fishing in the woods, caring for our furbabies, plus whatever strays need to be fed, too.
