Amanda

Dental Assistant

Amanda is a true Floridian, born and raised in West Palm Beach and a graduate of Palm Beach Community High School. While attending Lincoln College of Technology, she studied dental assisting. During her studies she realized the importance of dental health and her compassion for patient care.

Amanda excelled in the dental assisting program and finished at the top of her class in 2006. In addition to her dental assisting degree, Amanda also received her expanded functions and radiology certification. She has been an integral part of our clinical team since 2012, and is known for being very caring, knowledgeable, and devoted to our practice.

Amanda loves working with all the new technologies that Dr. Ouellette brings into the practice from his extensive teaching. She recognizes that keeping up to date with the constant advances in dentistry is a necessity in order to continue providing the first-class treatment and services we insist upon.

She is also instrumental in “behind the scenes” lab work and case review that has to take place to produce the precision, comprehensive dentistry performed by Drs. Ouellette and McClane. But her favorite part of her job is working with people and making them feel good about themselves. She views the doctors and her co-workers like family in providing the most compassionate dental care environment in the Palm Beach area. 

Amanda is a dedicated mother to two very handsome young sons. She enjoys spending time with her family and loves to shop.

 

Corlan

Hygiene Coordinator

Corlan is our hygiene coordinator and is a Florida native born in Palm Beach Gardens. She has lived in Florida all her life, never wanting to leave this sunshine state of paradise. As part of the front desk team, she is primarily responsible for scheduling and providing for the ongoing maintenance and improvement of our patients’ smiles when they see our fabulous team of hygienists. However, she is also skilled in all areas of front desk service to ensure ultimate patient satisfaction.

Corlan started out her dental career experimenting as an intern at her mother’s dentist office, and discovered she enjoyed dentistry immensely. She then decided to attend Palm Beach State College, and graduated in 2007 as a dental hygienist. Soon, Corlan would find that she liked the fast-paced customer service of coordinating patients from the front desk area versus clinical practice. She utilizes her extensive hygiene and dental knowledge to answer questions and facilitate care and treatment by all of our practitioners as a member of the administrative team.

She has worked the dental front desk since 2006, and returned to us after pursuing an entrepreneurial opportunity. We are thrilled to have Corlan back in our office, and she is happy to be back working in a dental office taking great care of our patients!

Corlan’s favorite part of her job is the patient interactions, and continuing to learn new concepts.  She loves working with Dr. Ouellette, and admires his knowledge in all areas of dentistry and the passion he demonstrates in his work to receive the consistent praises of his patients and the referral of their friends and loved ones. She appreciates that he is well known in the community and cares so much about the patients he serves.

In her spare time, Corlan enjoys, tennis, exercising, and spending time with family and friends.

 

Cyndi

Patient Care Coordinator

Cyndi is a registered dental hygienist. Born and raised in beautiful Delray Beach, she began her career in dentistry in 1994. Cyndi started off as a certified dental assistant and quickly fell in love with all the dynamics that dentistry has to offer. In 1998 she received her licensure in dental hygiene from Palm Beach State College.

Although expert clinical care and personalized relationships with her patients is her passion, Cyndi also has the natural ability to teach and had to follow that calling. In 2003, she joined the part-time staff at Palm Beach State College as an adjunct professor in the Dental Health Services Department to have the best of both worlds. Unfortunately, due to a car accident she is no longer able to perform as a dental hygienist so Cyndi has transitioned her clinical knowledge and excellent patient relationships to become a patient care coordinator for our practice.

Her major role is to meet with new patients when they see the doctor during their initial consult, and make sure they have all their questions answered and needs met. She then coordinates and facilitates care with other specialists, sending letters and treatment information to maximize continuity of care for all patients. She loves working with our warm, dedicated, innovative, and expert team to give our patients the best dental experience available.

Cyndi is also a clinical consultant who teaches hands-on advanced instrumentation and communication skills across the U.S. with Mission Possible Best Hygiene program. She is currently teaching local anesthesia to licensed hygienists in the state of Florida and has also served as a clinical instructor in the continuing education department at the University of Florida. She is a current member of the American Dental Hygienists’ Association, Florida Dental Hygiene Association, Palm Beach County Dental Hygiene Association, Sigma Phi Alpha dental hygiene honors society, Palm Beach County Oral Health Coalition, and Oral Health Florida.

Cyndi enjoys spending her free time with her daughter Vanessa. She is a lover of all animals and is the proud owner of a Chihuahua named Sophia.

 

Danielle

Dental Hygienist

Danielle is a registered dental hygienist who joined our team in 2012. She was born in Edmonton, Alberta, where as a child she saw herself becoming a dental hygienist. She has accomplished this childhood dream and loves helping others to understand the importance of oral hygiene.

Danielle received her license at Palm Beach State College in 2005. Danielle is currently a member of the American Dental Hygienists’ Association and subscribes to the code of ethics endorsed by this association. As a young and motivated individual, Danielle joined the teaching staff at Palm Beach State College where she is an adjunct professor. Her long-term goal is to continue her education and earn a bachelor’s degree in health management.

Danielle has been in dentistry for more than ten years, originally contributing to our team as a certified dental assistant in 2012, and she transitioned quickly to hygiene when we had an opening. She is very dedicated to the profession of dental hygiene and enjoys keeping at the forefront of dentistry. Her skills and experience have extended to make her an outstanding periodontal therapist. She is a well-rounded and committed expert who loves her profession.

In her spare time, Danielle enjoys being with her husband Chris, son Nicholas, as well as family and friends, working out, and traveling.

 

Diana

Dental Assistant

Born in Cocoa Beach and raised in Broward County, Diana has lived most of her life in Florida. She received her radiology certification from the University of Gainesville.

Diana joined our office in 2016, but has been in dentistry since 1983. She chose to come to work in our office because she values the quality of care we provide, and to be part of a true team of professionals who are as compassionate as she is in her love of dentistry. Her greatest sense of accomplishment comes when she sees patients smile and have their confidence improve after visiting our office. She enjoys using her extensive experience to educate and provide excellence in dental care with every patient she comes in contact with, as well as incorporating new ideas from the doctors and hygienists.

Diana is very family oriented. She spends time with her boyfriend, daughter, and grandson. They can be found camping, biking, motorcycle riding, or at the beach, a cookout, or at a concert listening to music.

 

Ginny

Financial / Insurance Coordinator

Ginny provides excellent patient service in her role as financial coordinator. While serving as part of our front desk administrative team, she makes sure our patients are informed, comfortable, and quoted accurate fees prior to beginning dental treatment so there are no surprises or hidden charges. She makes individualized financial arrangements for ease of payment, including credit cards and assisting patients to acquire medical loans.

Ginny is also a big patient advocate and truly enjoys working with insurance companies and making financial arrangements to be sure she can maximize benefits and allow our patients to afford the care they desire and deserve. She has helped so many people in more than 30 years of employment with Dr. Ouellette, and she appreciates his excellence in dentistry and continuing pursuit of knowledge through his teaching and research as well as her caring team of co-workers.

Originally from South Carolina, Ginny moved to Florida shortly after getting married. She began her early career working as an administrative assistant for Mass Mutual Insurance Company, but desired more person-to-person contact. She first took a position as a dental assistant, but felt that she could have more impact and help patients with her vast knowledge of insurance acquired at her earlier position, so she transitioned to the front desk when it became available. She was certainly right on target, because she was then hired by our office and has been happy providing that service as well as other front desk duties to our patients since 1983!

Ginny and her husband Kent have lived in Palm Beach Gardens for more than 40 years. They have two sons, two wonderful daughters-in-law, and five beautiful grandchildren. In her spare time she volunteers at her church to help the less fortunate, and enjoys shopping, exercising, and spending time with her family.

 

Tiffany

Dental Hygienist

Tiffany is a Registered Dental Hygienist who was born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  She is another of our true Floridian natives.  She graduated from Palm Beach State College with her Associates Degree in Dental Hygiene in 2017, and excelled so much in her hygiene program and leadership skills that she was voted president of her class!  Now, as a licensed, practicing Registered Dental Hygienist she maintains being  an active member of the American Dental Hygiene Association.

 

As a child, Tiffany was attracted to study the field of dentistry because of her many positive experiences and interactions while in orthodontic treatment.  She is a strong advocate of patient education, prevention and explaining the relationship of oral heath to overall health of her patients, and values the special connection and relationship she develops with her patients.  She is challenged by the fear some patients have when going to the dentist and succeeds in calming them and making them feel very relaxed and comfortable.  To assist in succeeding in her goals for excellence in hygiene Tiffany has a personal goal to take 1 online CE course or read 1 journal/article per day, since her graduation.  So far she has accomplished that, and her performance shows it!

 

Tiffany started working for our office as a temporary employee covering a maternity leave. Once we observed how she took such excellent care of our patients, and developed such an instant rapport with them and her co-workers, we never let her go!  She has continued to work with our office even after the return of our other team member!

 

In her spare time, besides reading dental education, she enjoys starting off her mornings at the gym, kickboxing, and spending time with her significant other Chris and her dog Cooper. They, (and Cooper), enjoy frequent trips to the dog park. Tiffany also loves watching movies on Netflix, and dining out like a true foodie.  But unfortunately, restaurants often pale next to the delicious Brazilian food that her mother prepares at her parents' house

 
 

 


Karen

Restorative Scheduling Coordinator

Karen is part of our administrative front office team. She is primarily focused on patient coordination, which includes scheduling the doctors’ and hygiene appointments. She makes sure patients are greeted, checked in properly, and taken care of by the clinical staff.

Born and raised in Michigan, Karen started in dentistry as an assistant in 1969. She moved to Florida in 1991 and worked as a dental lab tech for a few years. As a lab technician, she found that while she exercised her excellent technical skills, she missed patient contact. She applied for an available opening for a front desk position. That was where she truly found her niche! Karen has worked at our front desk since 1996, and has never looked back.

When working the front of the office, Karen loves talking to patients, establishing long-term relationships, and communicating with the clinical staff and doctors to meet the needs of our patients through her headset with our caring team. She enjoys the challenge of accommodating everyone, and making the schedule work and run on time. As much as she enjoys the company, she doesn’t like having anyone waiting to be seen in the reception area. Ultimately, she makes sure our patients have their dental needs met in a friendly, comfortable, pleasant, and pain-free environment.

A wife and mother of three, Karen is also a proud grandmother of four. In her spare time, she enjoys gardening, cooking, and interior decorating.

 

Yulema ("Julie")

Dental Hygienist

Born and raised Yulema or Yuli pronounced “Julie”, is of Spanish heritage with original descendants from Lugo, Spain, but was born in Havana, Cuba.  She immigrated to Florida and has lived here since 2001. She graduated from Palm Beach State College with Magna Cum Laude honors, and was in the top of her dental hygiene class with a 3.78 GPA.  She came to work for us after a brief hiatus from working as a hygienist to attempt go to school full-time to complete an additional degree. However, she found that she missed working too much, and has jumped back into hygiene with the same skill, knowledge, and passion that she has always had.  She demonstrates every day how well she can improve dental health and enhance the dental self care knowledge of her patients working part time, and attending class on a part time basis.  The best of both worlds!  

As a child, Yuli always had a dream to be in the medical profession in order to have a direct positive influence on her community by helping those in need.  Her uncle, who was a dentist then introduced her to the world of dentistry.  She soon discovered how good oral health was a major contribution to overall health and wellness, and when it was combined with her fascination with teeth this made becoming a dental hygienist a true calling.  

In addition to her Dental Hygiene degree, Yuli has completed training and certifications in local anesthesia and computer controlled local anesthesia delivery which are credentialed and licensed by the state of Florida.  She is CPR certified, and is an active member of the American, the Florida, and the Palm Beach County Dental Associations, as well as the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, and continues to take courses to complete a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biological Sciences at FAU to round out her education.

Yuli is married, has two daughters and a dog.  When she is not workings as a hygienist, attending classes, doing homework, or spending time with her family, she enjoys being active in sports, travel, and doing mission trips to underprivileged countries.  

 


Esmeralda ("Es")

Dental Assistant

Esmeralda- is known in the office as simply “Es”.  (Pronounced "Ez").  Her appropriate name is fondly reminiscent of one syllable names like “Cher” or “Prince”who also figuratively and literally dance their way through the day like she does as one of our team of Dental Assistants.  Her amazing positive and caring attitude, coupled with a great sense of teamwork and professionalism helps everyone, especially her doctor and patients to feel confident and relaxed during their dental procedures.  

Es is of Mexican heritage and is bilingual.  She was born in Orange County, California, and from a very young age, had always enjoyed working with and helping people.  She decided to make it a career by studying Psychology in order to work with special needs children.  While finishing her degree in Psychology and working as a waitress to support herself, she met a woman in New York who took a shine to her, and offered her a job in her dental office. Es accepted and found out that she loved it!  She saw it as the perfect opportunity to help people and to use her psychology education to understand and help to keep patients happy and comfortable while assisting them to receive the excellence in dentistry that they deserve.

In her free time, Es enjoys working out at the gym, any kind of sports, and loves the beach, which is why she moved to Florida.  Friends, year round activities, beach and sun were quite a calling for her.  She also loves any type of food with hot sauce.  It has been reported that she consumes as much as a bottle or more per week!  We all believe it is why she has so much energy and dances all the time!  Es also has a very special dog named Molly, who is a lab pit bull mix that she rescued.  It was a miracle that Molly lived after being in very tough shape, and very fortunate to have found such a happy caring owner like Es.  

 


 

Carmen

Patient Care Coordinator

Carmen is one of our Patient Care Coordinators and functions as a member of the administrative front desk team.  Not only does she provide support for the scheduling, check in, and smooth provision of patient care services in our office, but is also involved in new, and existing patient interviews and treatment planning conferences to help with questions, insurance verification, and making convenient financial arrangements.  She makes sure our patients are well taken care of.  

Originally born in Puerto Rico, Carmen is bilingual in Spanish, and moved as a baby with her parents to mainland USA in the Belle Glade area.  She has since moved around in Florida having attended West Tech and Palm Beach Community College.  However, it was while living in Tampa where she had her first experience in dentistry.  She was volunteering in a dental office just to help out a friend and became enamored with patients coming in and then becoming transformed with happy smiles.  She loved the patient interaction, and felt that it was this type of environment that she wanted to work in, to feel the gratification of making someone happy.  Here she is 20 years later, still enjoying working in Dentistry, and we are thrilled to have her. 

When Carmen is not at our office, she loves to take long walks on the beach, and practices meditation in her spare time.  She is also continually helping others through local organizations feeding the homeless, right here in Florida.  However, that desire to help others has extended beyond our borders.  She has been to Costa Rica, Guatemala and Honduras and has more plans in the upcoming years.  She does also love vacation travel as well, visiting many parts of the USA, but especially the areas that include visiting her two children and eight grandchildren!
