One of the secrets to an exceptional dental office is having an attentive, competent, dedicated team of employees working together to serve patients. Our long histories with the practice are a testament of our mutual respect for each other and our deep commitment to our patients. We are proud of our team and the work we do!
Christine joined our practice nearly 10 years ago, and she is responsible for the nuts and bolts of the office. Originally, Christine worked full-time and handled all non-clinical aspects of the practice. Then in 2011, she had her daughter and transitioned to part-time. Now Christine works mostly behind the scenes, managing the administrative aspects of the practice and serving as Dr. Blake’s personal assistant. She is married and when she’s not in the office, she is caring for her daughter, Amelia. She is also a Leader for La Leche League of West Palm Beach.
Kelly joined our team in 2011, and she keeps the gears of our practice running smoothly. Kelly is responsible for coordinating all aspects of patient therapy: scheduling appointments, tracking lab cases, and maintaining communication between other dental specialists, among other important duties. Her friendly, professional demeanor and outstanding attention to detail ensures that our patients always receive a superior level of care. We are fortunate to have her as the face of our office! In her free time, Kelly enjoys volunteering in her local community and playing tennis.
Luz began working as Dr Blake’s assistant more than 15 years ago, and she is the heart of our practice. She truly loves dentistry and helping people, and it shows. Patients enjoy seeing Luz’s friendly face, and they are comforted by her caring nature and gentle hands. Even new patients feel instantly at ease. Having worked in the field since 1988, Luz has a broad understanding of a dental practice and is able to lend support in all areas of office activity. As a Colombian native, she is fluent in Spanish, which enables us to better connect with our Latino patients. The only thing that rivals Luz’s passion for helping others is her love for her two children, Luis and Samantha. In her spare time, she also enjoys hot yoga and adventure activities like sky diving.
Jill became our primary dental hygienist in 2010, and she is the most popular hygienist we’ve ever had. Jill is a seasoned professional, with more than 20 years of experience. She is skilled at maintaining sophisticated dental restorations, such as dental implants and hybrid dentures. Patients rave about her gentle but thorough technique, and many patients are surprised that they actually look forward to getting their teeth cleaned now. Jill is married and has two children, Colby and Kylie. Most weekends they can be found cruising around the Intracoastal in the family boat.
