Meet the Staff

Toni, Office Manager - Willowick Office

I joined the Center for Dental Health in 1994. The majority of my responsibilities are to oversee all departments, including scheduling the staff, doctors and patients and make sure our day runs smoothly. Additionally, I troubleshoot any issues and handle insurance coordination and financial treatment arrangements.

Outside of work, I’m a bit of a foodie who enjoys crafts and loves to travel. I’ve been married for over 40 years and have three children and three grandchildren: time with them is a priority and watching them grow and change gives me pure joy and happiness!


Cindy, Office Manager - Beachwood Office

I’ve been part of the Center for Dental Health since 1996. I welcome patients, help them schedule visits, and handle filing their insurance claims. I am also in charge of our accounts receivable and payable. Our patients are some of the most wonderful people in the world. I enjoy our conversations and look forward to seeing their smiles!

Outside of work I am a volunteer firefighter and EMT


Carole, Dental Receptionist

I enjoy talking with our patients and families. Since starting with the practice in 1982, I’ve made many wonderful friendships and treasure those connections. It’s great to strengthen those bonds and create new ones each day. I greet and check in patients, update their records, and enter payments. I also handle scheduling and work with patients on financial agreements.

When not working at the Center for Dental Health, I enjoy the company of my children, family, and friends.


Lora, Dental Receptionist

I started with the Center for Dental Health in 1984 and love the friendships I’ve made. I work in the front office, checking patients in and out, answering phones, scheduling visits, and helping patients with insurance matters.

My time off is spent with family and friends. I’ve been married for 30 years and have a daughter as well as a dog, Bocci. I love to travel!


Megan, Dental Receptionist

I joined the Center for Dental Health in August 2021. I had been a patient for years and grew up with Dr. Wazney's (middle) daughter, Monica. I am responsible for scheduling patients, answering phones, processing both patient and insurance payments and managing our social media presence.

Outside of work, I spend my time with my husband Chris, son Jamison and all of our family and friends. I enjoy photography, true crime documentaries, iced coffee and being a Mom!


Donna, Dental Assistant

I really like getting to know our patients on a personal level and hearing about their lives and families. I joined our team in 2006, having started in the field in 1988, and know this is the best practice. I set-up operatories, then I seat patients, prepare them for their procedures, and take X-rays and alginate impressions. I also provide chairside assistance and handle lab work.

Much of my time off is spent with my son: he is my life. I also enjoy camping and boating.

Nicole, Dental Assistant

I started with the Center for Dental Health in June 2021. When first hired, I was a 'runner' going between rooms to sanitize, sterilize instruments and re-set rooms for the next patient to be seated. As of September 2022, I am now a dental assistant. What I enjoy most is working closely with the patients and making sure they feel at ease and comfortable during their procedure. I plan to attend school to become a dental hygienist in the future.

On a personal note, I enjoy working out, going for walks and staying active. I have 5 cats that I adore!

Angelica, Dental Assistant

I have been working at the Center for Dental Health since the summer of 2020.  Working here has definitely changed my life and career choice for the better!  I now work as a dental assistant, but I am currently enrolled at Lakeland Community College to become a Registered Dental Hygienist.  I cannot wait to see where this path takes me and I hope to make a positive impact on many lives.

When I am not working or studying, I love to spend time with my family.  I also enjoy going for walks, playing video games, drawing and sewing.

Taylor, Dental Assistant

I started with the Center for Dental Health in 2018.  My prior work experience includes pediatric dentistry.  What I like best about working with patients is creating a personal connection, making them feel comfortable during procedures and building their confidence with their smile.

I graduated from Case Western Reserve University in 2022 with my certificate in Expanded Functions Dental Auxiliary (EFDA).

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children.  We enjoy the outdoors, including camping and swimming.  We have 3 animals: a cat named Rocky, a dog named Jillian and a bunny named Lola.

Linda, Expanded Functions Dental Auxiliary (EFDA)

I love being part of a great team, where we help people improve their dental health and their smiles. I joined the team in 1999 and immediately knew I’d found my professional family. I provide chairside assistance, helping the doctors while supporting patients during dental and orthodontic procedures. I also enjoy helping patients feel at ease while I complete their restorative work.

My favorite times when not working are spent with my husband, son and daughter. We spend as much time outside as possible. I’m also a big Cleveland sports fan.


Laura, Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)

I love being part of so many families’ lives. I’ve been at the Center for Dental Health since 1982 and am caring for some of the same people, and now their children and grandchildren, as when I started! I work one-to-one with patients, helping each attain their healthiest smile. By teaching people how to keep their mouth clean and healthy, they’re able to keep that smile for life!

I’ve been married for over 30 years and have two grown sons, Dan and Bryan. I’m active in my church and national ski patrol and enjoy hiking and spending time in my yard.

Beth, Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)

The Center for Dental Health is an extraordinary place to work.  The staff are genuine, caring and demonstrate the highest standard in oral care.

I consider it a privilege to meet your dental needs.  I've been working as a dental hygienist for over 21 years.  I joined the practice in July 2022.  I also teach oral facial anatomy and local anesthesia at Lakeland Community College.

I enjoy spending time with my husband Brian and son Luke.  I like to play clarinet, piano and going to live concerts.


Victoria, Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)

I’ve been part of the Center for Dental Health since 2001 and am honored by the friendships that have grown with patients. I am so happy to work closely with patients, helping each of them achieve the beautifully clean and healthy smile they deserve. I clean teeth and teach patients about home dental hygiene.

My personal time is spent with my family. I’ve been married for over 16 years and have two daughters, Madalynn and Natalie. I enjoy the outdoors, staying healthy by working out and love taking family camping trips and vacations.
