Meet Our Team

We’d like to think we have one of the most experienced and cohesive periodontal practice teams around. Some of our members have been working in their respective fields for close to four decades. And most of our team has been with us for at least 10 years. What that looks like from the patients’ perspective: an unparalleled expertise and a deep understanding of their experience.

Dental Hygienist / Office Manager

Dental Hygienist

Andrea Cuenca, RDH

Andrea’s been with us for over 5 years and in the dental field for over 15 years. She’s meticulous and compassionate in how she goes about her work—qualities you should expect from anyone acting as the first line of defense for your oral health. Andrea loves being with patients and making them feel relaxed while they are under her care. She is motivated by knowing she is having a positive impact on a patient’s oral health. 

Toni Zammit, RDH

Toni started with us as a dental assistant in 2005 while she earned her dental hygienist degree. It’s the people who make the work interesting for her. “I really enjoy getting to know our patients and building a rapport with each of them,” she says. “It helps the office feel more like a small community.” At home, nothing can compete with a little quality time with her family—unless, of course, you’re offering some alone time and a big mug of tea.
