Meet the Staff
DAVID — OFFICE MANAGER
Welcome to Heritage Dental!
My name is David and I am grateful that you are visiting our website and learning more about our practice, our team, and how we can partner with you in achieving your dental health.
Joining the Heritage Dental family in 2023 has been a wonderful experience. The Doctors, our Hygienist, and staff are patient-centered, caring, and professional; and our patient family is
amazing. I am very grateful to be here with such amazing people!
My journey in the dental field began in 2001 as a dental assistant. I fell in love with the field and having the opportunity to interact with wonderful patients and assist them through apprehensions and get them back to smiling. My passion for patient care and assisting is still going strong, so don’t be surprised if you see me in scrubs and assist in taking excellent care of you.
My wife Quyen and I live in Fredericksburg and we love the community. With your help we have raised 3 children here into two young men and a young lady that we are very proud of. It
takes a village. Kevin, Katherine, and Kyle that are all in college now! Empty nest life!
Quyen and I are foodies, constantly looking for new restaurants and dishes to enjoy. So as we welcome you to our practice, and get to know each other, I hope you will have food
recommendations for me to take my wife out to.
Thank you for taking a minute to learn about me and Heritage Dental. Whether you are a prospective patient or have been a part of our family for years, I look forward to welcoming you
and meeting you for the first time and many times to come.
DEAH — REGISTERED DENTAL HYGIENIST
Hello and Welcome!
My name is Deah and I am your Registered Dental Hygienist here at Heritage Dental. I grew up in Washington State and Montana but have also lived in 11 different states. I finally settled in Fredericksburg, Virginia in 2010. I was a stay-at-home for 10 years while married to my son’s father who was an active Marine, before finding my passion in the Dentistry field.
I started my career in Dentistry at Germanna Community College, graduating from Dental Assisting and obtaining my CDA. I continued my education and graduated a second time with an associate degree as a Registered Dental Hygienist from Northern Virginia Community College.
I was blessed to find the love of my life upon graduation, and we have been blissful ever since! I absolutely love my profession and I look forward to the wonderful patient relationships that have and will develop over the course of my career.
I have a wonderful teenage son and three amazing stepchildren along with 4 fur babies, 3 cats, and our precious pup Peanut! I have a few hobbies, as I am a big DIY’er and I am always remodeling something in our family home, as well as, creating one of a kind art pieces in my spare time.
My favorite thing is enjoying my family while making memories to cherish for years to come. (“Humanity has unquestionably one really exceptional weapon — laughter”)
I thank you for allowing me to care for you and your family while you receive optimal, friendly, and informative health care here at Heritage Dental.
KIARA — HYGEINE ASSISTANT
Hi, my name is Kiara, and I am a Hygiene Assistant! I received my certificate in Dental Assisting in 2021 and just recently joined the amazing Heritage Dental family. I have worked in the dental field for a couple of months and can’t wait to continue my growth here at Heritage Dental. I’m very passionate about helping others and love meeting new patients every day. I have two cats and when I’m not working, I like spending my time painting, gaming on my PC, gardening and being with my family and friends. I look forward to meeting you at our office!
MARY JO — PRACTICE ADMINISTRATOR
Hello, I’m Mary Jo! I joined the Heritage Dental family in November 2020 as the financial coordinator, and I felt like a part of the family immediately. I bring 15 years of administrative experience in both medical and dental offices, but it was when I joined the dental field, I realized I had found my niche. I love helping others, and I’ve been fortunate enough to work in an environment where I can help others on a regular basis. Through my years working in the dental field, I have learned many facets of what it takes to run a dental office efficiently. I have worked the front desk, scheduling, office manager, and financial coordinator roles. Now, I am working as the Practice Administrator which is a fun new way I’m expanding my work experience. I love the rewards of watching patients’ transformations as they go through their needed treatment.
I’m originally from Northern Michigan, and I now live in Stafford with my husband, Ken, of 32 years. Between us, we have 6 amazing adult children and 3 wonderful grandchildren. When we are not spending time with our family, I love baking, working in the yard, and going on weekend getaways.
I hope you’ll love the Heritage Dental family as much as I do. You are in amazing hands at Heritage Dental!
