Meet the Staff
Tampa Dental takes great pride in its staff. They are a dedicated group of office and clinical professionals and are an essential part of our organization, and daily functioning. Our staff is available to assist Dr. K and Dr. Nick as well as our patients in making their treatment a positive experience. They are available to answer questions, schedule appointments, and make financial arrangements for our patients. Tampa Dental makes it a priority to continuously develop their skills and abilities in order to maintain the highest standards of care.
Diane – Patient Coordinator
I joined the Tampa Dental team in 2000 and over the years I have enjoyed meeting and greeting our patients. My goal is to see each and everyone have a positive experience starting with their first call to our office.
Alicia – Insurance Coordinator
I have been with Tampa Dental since 2004. I have over 15 years of insurance knowledge. I am in the process of getting my Bachelor of Science degree in public health. My hobbies are walking and traveling.
Kelly – Hygienist
I graduated from the St. Petersburg College of Dental Hygiene program. I am also a USF alumnus where I majored in Biomedical Science. I joined the Tampa Dental team in December 2013. I enjoy meeting and maintaining relationships with patients while attending to their dental needs.
Ian – Assistant
I graduated from Central Florida Institute for Dental Assisting and currently attend St. Pete College. I’ve been working in the dental field since I was 16 years old and I have been assisting since January, 2014. In my spare time, I enjoy playing drums in my bands.
Leidy – Assistant
I am a VMA certified assistant and worked nine years in New Jersey. I moved to Tampa in 2013. I am very happy and blessed being here at Tampa Dental. I love taking care of patients. My goal is to make them comfortable while the doctor works on giving them a healthy and beautiful smile. The best part of my life is raising my two children and helping them become wonderful and successful adults.
I am the wife of Dr. K. and the mother of Dr. Nick. In 2008, when we opened our new office, I retired from a 36-year career in teaching. I say, “I retired to the office”. I mainly work behind the scenes and I am not at the office daily. I try to make our office comfortable and look beautiful for our patients.
