Maria

Office Manager

As an office manager, my responsibilities include creating, establishing, and managing internal office protocols and procedures to ensure office efficiency. I also greet and serve patients as they arrive and coordinate our billing and accounting systems. I have worked alongside Dr. Arango since 2014, bringing with my more than 17 years of business administration in Colombia. This office is not just another job; it is my family. Our team is very professional and focused on results while always having our patients’ best interests at heart.

I have been married for 30 years and have one lovely daughter. In my free time, I like to explore new places, travel, and be active with my church. I also enjoy gardening.

 

Nicole

Dental Assistant

I joined Dr. Arango’s office in 2013 as a Certified Dental Assistant. I provide chairside support to Dr. Arango during treatments, make sure she has everything needed, and ensure our patient is comfortable throughout their visit. I’m excited build warm, friendly relationships with our patients to give them a comfortable dental experience.

I had a beautiful baby girl in March 2017. When I have free time, I enjoy attending local community events and spending time with my lovely family on the weekends.

 

Yenny

Dental Assistant

As a dental assistant, I am here to help Dr. Arango as she cares for our patients. I also take dental X-rays and impressions, and pour and trim models, too. The best part of my work, though, is seeing happy smiles from our patients. These past six years have been a pleasure, working with such a great staff and a doctor who is kind and helpful.

I’m a mom of two beautiful girls, Sophia and Samantha. I’ve been married for nine years. Outdoors and sports are a great way to spend my summer. I also love the beach and going home to spend time with my family.

 

Dani

Dental Hygienist

I graduated as a dental hygienist in 2006, but I grew up in a dental office as my father is a dentist! I joined Dr. Arango’s team in 2014 and, since then, have committed myself to establishing relationships with our patients and providing the best care possible in order to improve their health and quality of life. I enjoy getting to know my patients, especially those who are scared or nervous, and helping them feel relaxed and have a great experience.

I am originally from Colorado—Go Broncos! My husband is in the Navy. I have three grown children, three dogs, and a cat. I am obviously an animal lover! In my free time, I love to travel, go shopping, read, and spend time exploring the DC area.

 

Suzanne

Dental Hygienist

I began my dental career in 1996 when I graduated from EasTech School of Dental Assisting Program. In 2002, I graduated from Gene Hirshfield School of Dental Hygiene at Old Dominion University. I have been a part of Dr. Arango’s team since 2013, where I provide a healthy oral environment for responsible individuals that want to maintain a healthy mouth. The best part of my job is building relationships with friends, one hour at a time.

I have been married for nearly 24 years to my husband Jay. I am a very busy person with my four boys and my daughter, shuttling the kids to basketball, horseback riding, and swimming.

 

Tracy

Financial and Treatment Coordinator

I have worked with Dr. Arango since 2015 as her financial and treatment coordinator. I am here to help patients get the treatment they need and deserve by assisting them in overcoming financial obstacles. It is a joy for me to work with such genuine, caring, and talented people. Our office is a fun environment that I look forward to coming to every day.

Outside of work, I currently study Marketing at George Mason University. I enjoy spending time with friends and family, traveling, and attending social events.
