Meet Your Dental Care Team


Flor - Administrative Assistant
Flor welcomes patients to the practice in the reception area. With a focus on excellent customer service, Flor introduces new patients to the team, helps patients with paperwork and insurance forms, orients them to the office and makes them feel comfortable. Flor prides herself in giving special attention to an anxious person and to the many children who are patients of Dr. Halek. “Our patients say we’re a very friendly office and take the time to get to know them and make them feel comfortable,” says Flor. She continues, “it makes us feel great when the kids leave smiling and show us the drawings they made while in the waiting area.”


Denise - Dental Hygienist
Denise loves Dentistry. It's her away of helping others to achive good health. She has been with Dr. Halek since 1995 and says it's great working with "state of the art"  technology, having patients that are like family and having such a great team!

Denise had a vision of Dentistry with a Spa Theme, which led us to "OraSpa". She is certified in Dental Spa Touch Therapy and now offers feautures that enhance, relax and make patients feel special during  their dental cleanings.


Maria - Financial Coordinator
Patients often interact with Maria when they schedule an appointment in person or by telephone. A very concientious and knowledgeable team member, Maria may just as likely be greeting patients as they arrive as assisting Dr. Halek with a procedure. “I like how we treat all of our patients – the way I would want to be treated,” she adds. “I think we have a unique relationship with our patients, our entire team goes out of its way to give everyone the best possible experience.”


Cindi - Dental Assistant
As a vital part of the patient care team, Cindi works very closely with Dr. Halek to ensure a smooth process and the comfort of each patient. A dental assistant has many challenging duties including recording patient health histories. Cindi has been with Dr. Halek’s practice for 15 years and observes “the state of the art equipment makes it a lot easier for our patients. However, what patients say most often is they feel like they’re being welcomed into a family’s home – not a dental office.” Cindi adds “we give our patients a lot of TLC and we’re proud that they refer their friends and family members to us."
