Your Friendly & Professional Dental Team
Everything we do is for our patients both when they are present and behind the scenes.
Jades JimenezI was born and raised a single child to a single immigrant mother. I grew up in the Washington Heights section of NYC, which exposed me to my Dominican culture. I recently married my first childhood boyfriend and together we have two beautiful children. I bring an organized, detail-oriented approach to dentistry that places patients as the priority and means it is rare for anything to fall through the cracks.
I started my first job in a Dental office while in college and developed into an Office Manager. I love what I do for a living just as much as I did the first day I started. I am motivated by the relationships I’ve built with these patients and by our team that makes me laugh and enjoy what I do on a daily basis. I enjoy the challenges I face as a manager because they allow me to learn something new every day.
Through the years I have put a lot effort into completing continuing education courses. Coming into this practice I’ve brought this wealth of knowledge to the team. What’s best is that I am surrounded by a group of people who are eager to implement the new things they learn from me and we have fun while we do!
Outside the Office: Spending time with my family.
Hero: My mother is the smartest person I know, her genes have trickled down to me and my children.
Bucket List Item: I would love to one day be able to go back to school and enroll in a dental program.
Spirit Animal: The dolphin. They are empathetic, charismatic, and always willing to lend a helping hand.
Dental Assistants & Hygienists
Yvannys SantanaI am married with two beautiful girls. Originally, I’m from the Dominican Republic where my love for dentistry started. My aunt was a dentist in D.R. and she instilled in me the love of dentistry and how seeing a GREAT dentist could change a person’s life.
Therefore, I started my dental career back home where I received a doctorate in Dental Science. I was lucky enough to establish my own practice and treat patients from all walks of life and all financial backgrounds. I often participated in missions where we would go to underserved parts of the country to provide dental work free of charge. I did this for 30 years and then moved to the U.S.
I enjoy seeing the transformation from when a patient walks through the door looking for solutions to seeing their happiness after receiving the type of dental work that we render. I appreciate how our doctors listen to my recommendations and treat me as a professional.
I have a knack for relating to both doctor and patient, which promotes harmony and organization in our office.
Outside of the Office: I like to travel, go to water parks, and play baseball.
Hero: My mother. She is one of the strongest people I know and always supports me as I pursue my goals and aspirations.
Bucket List Item: To overcome my fear of heights and skydive.
Spirit Animal: A Lioness. I am fierce, make the rules, and a leader!
Naville MinayaGrowing up in the Dominican Republic I had the best experience with my dentist. Since I was very young I was intrigued by everything she did and how fun my visits were. That’s what made me pursue dentistry in the first place. I achieved my Associate Degree in Applied Science Dental Hygiene while working at the front desk and as a dental assistant too.
I am the daughter of two of the most wonderful and caring people in the world. I am married to a wonderful man and have a little girl whom I adore.
I love taking care of people in a warm and caring atmosphere where their comfort is the main concern. That’s what I work for, and what drives me to be better. I strive to provide a top-quality service focused on educating patients about the importance of oral health. I use my eye for detail and integrity to offer honest, gentle care to all my patients. I also place an emphasis on patient safety by providing a clean working environment.
It is so rewarding when a patient is satisfied with their care as you develop a personal attachment over time. I also enjoy working with our team – we have a good workflow where patients are the priority.
Outside the Office: I love going to the movies, dancing, and family gatherings. Christmas movies are my weakness, I could watch them all year long. Most of all, I love spending time with my husband and little girl.
Hero: My grandmother. She passed away two years ago, and up to this day, there is not a decision I make in my life that does not involve reflecting on what she would do if it were her.
Bucket List Item: I fulfilled it when I became a mother.
Spirit Animal: A butterfly. I believe that transformation is powerful. It gives us the ability to examine ourselves constantly, look at different perspectives and decide if a change is necessary to find joy within ourselves.
