Alta

Dental Assistant

Among my many duties as a dental assistant, I really enjoy working with Invisalign® patients, taking dental photographs, and assisting in four-handed dentistry. My favorite part of my job, however, is making sure each patient is comfortable and feels at ease when he or she is with us. I feel fortunate to see our patients on a consistent basis, and the relationships we’re able to develop over time mean a lot to me.

I’m married to a wonderful husband and I’m a proud mother of two young boys. We enjoy spending time together as a family exploring the outdoors.


Angela

Administrative Assistant

I help support and maintain the day-to-day operations of the office so it can run as smooth as possible. My expertise in troubleshooting and problem-solving has prepared me to fix any technical issues or malfunction that arises. My skill set primarily lies in computer science, but I’ve always had a passion for patient care. Drs. Gray and Giannini have fostered an environment in which we’re able to give patients the best care possible while remaining on the cutting edge of technology. 

My hobbies include traveling, cooking, and sewing. I’m an amateur seamstress, but I enjoy creating elaborate costumes and accessories for my friends and family.


Barb

Internal Practice Administrator

My association with dentistry goes all the way back to my childhood, when I used to spend time in my father’s dental office. His love of the profession and dedication to the well-being of his patients inspired me to pursue a career as a dental hygienist. I had to give up clinical practice due to an injury, but that didn’t stop my dedication to the dental field. I have helped Drs. Giannini and Gray with accounting and team benefits for more than 20 years now, which allows our practice to offer the best employee compensation package in the entire metro area. Our team is made up of a wonderful, diverse group of individuals who are devoted to their jobs, team members, patients, and the promotion of dental health. They are a pleasure to be with, in and out of the office!


Carla

Benefits Coordinator

I assist our patients with their insurance and financial needs and concerns, and enable them to receive the dental care they need while staying within their budgets. My 30 years of experience in the dental field give me the ability to navigate deftly through the sometimes-confusing world of insurance benefits. I am always willing to help patients in any way, and am here to answer any questions you may have.

From spring to autumn on the weekends, I am usually in Lewes, Delaware with my daughters and their children at the beach. The winter months are spent with family and friends enjoying the holidays and any snow that might come our way.


Kymba

Dental Hygienist

I have an affinity for all things dentistry! I worked for a general dentist as a dental assistant, followed by an endodontist for many years before I journeyed off to hygiene school. I graduated from Howard University College of Dentistry with honors. With a special interest in periodontal disease, I love learning about innovative therapies and procedures that may be less invasive yet more comfortable for my patients. When asked my number-one priority, it’s providing the best care possible for everyone who steps in the office, while keeping in mind that no two people are alike.

Born in Philadelphia, and a die-hard Eagles fan, I love football! In my free time, I enjoy spin classes, traveling to new places, experiencing various cultures, and trying new restaurants. I am a member of the Big Brothers Big Sisters program, and I believe in giving back to the community. I live in North Potomac with my Westie-Lhasa, Chevey.


Lynette

Dental Hygienist 

I graduated from the University of Iowa with a Bachelor of Science in dental hygiene. I began practicing in Boston and have lived in Northern Virginia and Denver before finally settling down in Washington, DC. I enjoy working on a one-on-one basis with each patient, and tailoring my care to meet his or her individual needs. Our doctors and our team are dedicated to each patient’s entire health and well-being. We try to individualize our treatment and education. We don’t want to be just another dental office; we want to provide exceptional customer care and service.

I love spending time with my wonderful nieces and nephew. In my spare time, I enjoy gardening, playing duplicate bridge, hiking and biking in West Virginia, and attending Big Ten athletic events.
 


Mary

Patient Care Coordinator

As a patient care coordinator, I maintain the day-to-day efficiency of scheduling the patients to create a smooth transition for the doctors and staff, and improve the overall patient experience. I really enjoy working with the doctors and our team members, who provide exceptional care that strive for excellence.

I was born in Manila, the Philippines, then moved to Japan where we lived for six years. My father was transferred home to the US, where we have lived ever since. I was initiated into my dental career by working for my orthodontist during summer breaks, and then went on to college for dental assisting. I have since worked in the dental field for more than 45 years.

I live in North Bethesda with my cat Harper, and enjoy antiquing and various sports activities.


Maureen

Dental Hygienist

My start in dentistry began in the mid-1980s, before I got my high school diploma. In my junior year, I worked in a dental office sterilizing instruments; it was not glamorous, but for a young adult, it was money in my pocket. Before I went to hygiene school, I was a dental assistant for 14 years. I earned my Bachelor of Science in dental hygiene at the University of Maryland. I joined Giannini Gray Dental Partners in 2002.

My goal is to provide patients with the knowledge they need to understand the integral relationship between their oral health and that of the rest of their body. I treasure the mutual respect that all our doctors have for the hygiene staff’s diagnosis and treatment of varying levels of periodontal disease. Our dental team is on the same page regarding oral health as it relates to systemic health; we strive to make patients completely healthy.

I was born and raised in Montgomery County, just three blocks from the DC line. I’m the second of six children, which makes family gatherings quite large but lots of fun! Now empty-nesters, my husband and I live in Friendship Heights, just a mile from where I grew up, and a quick walk from the office. I am an active member of Our Lady of Lourdes parish in Bethesda. I enjoy spending time with both my son and daughter and son-in-law, as well as reading, walking, and dog sitting for my sisters.


Mindy

Dental Assistant

As a dental assistant, I work alongside our doctors with all aspects of patient care. I am also able to use my artistic talents to assist our doctors during aesthetic procedures. Seeing a beautiful smile that I helped to create is so rewarding! Every day is a new and exciting experience. I love working in an honest and fun environment, with coworkers who feel like family. This really is my second home!

I am happily married and the mother of two wonderful children. We also have three puppies that make our home complete. When I have free time, I enjoy cooking, traveling, and being with friends and family.


Nancy

Dental Assistant

For the past 30 years, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Giannini Gray Dental Partners to care for our patients. In that time, I’ve seen our doctors do some beautiful dentistry, but more important, I’ve seen them change lives with the care they provide. Everyone on our team comes together to help patients achieve the ideal health and stunning smiles they deserve. We build longstanding relationships that make us truly a family!

Originally from the Catskill Mountains, I live now in Chevy Chase with my wonderful husband, with whom I have a son. I love cooking, reading, and traveling.


Romy

Dental Assistant

As an expanded duty dental assistant, my position allows me to perform some expanded functions under the direct supervision of our doctors. My responsibilities include educating and providing patients with the tools necessary to improve their oral hygiene, being knowledgeable and efficient in a wide range of procedures, sterilizing and maintaining dental equipment and instruments in accordance with OSHA, and improving the oral health of every patient of the dental office. My favorite part my job is the daily interaction with our patients, doctors, and my other team members. They are my “extended family,” and provide tremendous compassion, comfort, friendship, and professional excellence.

My dental skills are very complementary with my hobby of designing jewelry. Both require passion, knowledge of materials, artistry, manual dexterity, and attention to detail to achieve the best final product.
 


Sandra

Patient Care Coordinator

It is my goal to maintain the integrity of our schedule and the patient flow, and provide each patient with a warm, friendly dental experience from the moment they walk through the door. I love working in an environment of mutual respect and understanding. I value that we’ve all been together for many years: enjoying what we do, and having fun doing it. It feels like family!

I love spending time with Andy and our wonderful family, especially our granddaughter! I enjoy traveling, skiing, taking walks with my dogs, cooking, reading, spending time with friends, attending church, dining out, and taking long road trips.


Selam

Dental Hygienist

I work with my patients on a personal level to promote ideal dental health and provide preventive treatments and education. Not only do I enjoy working with people, but I also love seeing my patients’ hygiene and oral health improve because of the care I provided. I love working with Drs. Giannini and Gray because they are the best and most ethical dentists I have ever met, and they value each one of us. Everyone on our team is here for each other whenever we’re needed.

I have a very loving and caring husband I adore, and two daughters we enjoy spending time with.

  


Tamika

Dental Assistant

I prepare patients for treatment by following the prescribed procedures and protocol of our doctors. My 15 years in the dental field enable me to educate the patients regarding their treatment, and thus make them feel more at ease during the entire experience. Working with such wonderful doctors, I am learning and growing every day. We are more than just a team of dental professionals; we are a dental family striving to provide the highest quality of patient care.

I have an amazing husband and two sons. I love cooking, reading, and spending time traveling with the family.


Umair

Patient Care Coordinator

My role at the front desk is to maintain the hygiene schedule. I also assist the other front desk personnel with any help that’s needed regarding patient flow and operations. I am a patient advocate and am willing to do whatever it takes to make sure our patients are taken care of. I have been with Giannini Gray Dental Partners for several years and have loved every moment of it. 

I got married in 2017, and have adopted three lovely pets: Wakandi, my kitten; Pixie, my sugar glider; and Raph, my ninja turtle. I enjoy sports and relaxing on my days off.


Wanda

Patient Care Coordinator

I flourish in creating an environment that’s pleasant, professional, and productive. It is my responsibility to manage the daily schedule, day-to-day office operation, and patient flow to ensure our office runs as smoothly as possible. I feel blessed to come to work every day where I can utilize my skills. It has been almost three decades since I joined Giannini Gray Dental Partners, and I am still excited to come to work each day. Every patient is greeted with a smile and made to feel welcomed.

I am happily married with an adult son and a lovely daughter-in-law. My faith and family are what keep me going. I am involved with my church community and outreach programs. My passion is helping others.
