Michele exudes dedication and passion in her profession. She loves being a hygienist!

She is extremely thorough & detailed in her explanations, while providing gentle care and concern. I have known Michele since 2000. She has 2 wonderful sons, Louie and Nicholas.
Betty Mills - Registered Dental Hygienist
Betty is one of the most caring member of our team. She has been in practice for 14 years graduating from Community College of Philadelphia Dental Hygiene Program with honors. She has generated trust from our dental friends and families because of her excellent clinical skills, patient education routines and her compassionate nature. She has been with Dr. Fernando since 2009.
Betty has a daughter, Shamera and granddaughter, Makayla, who is 8 years old.
Mary K. - Certified Extended Function Dental Assistant
The youngest in our crew, Mary is a tremendous help to Dr. Fernando. She is trained to perform procedures on patients such as making provisional crowns, simple teeth fillings, taking impressions, or adjusting prostheses, to name a few. She graduated from Manor College on 2006 and has worked on multiple offices since then. She has been with us since 2010.
Mary is one valuable package deal. Not only is she intuitive, quick and precise in her job but she is also a Miss Fix-It! Something she picked up hanging around with her dad.
A breath of fresh air, as Dr. Fernando would say, Mary is friendly and funny. Bishop, her old English bulldog, has kept her on top of our Fitbit group for long walks! And not to forget, running after her niece, May and nephew, Patrick, who she adores!
