Meet Our Team
Hi! My name is Nancy and I am the Practice Manager. I have been in the dental field for 26 years. I worked for a General Dental Practice in Bristol, for the past 26 years, before the doctor retired. Having to start over, after being in one place, for all those years, was a bit overwhelming. Although I was super excited for the next chapter.
Taking my time in my search, I fell upon this beautiful jewel Just4Kidz Dentistry. Dr. Celeste and her staff welcomed me, to be part of their team, and I was honored. I hope with all my years experience, I can answer any questions you may have. I plan on making the relationship between our patients and the front office, a positive one.
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 2 white German Shepherd dogs. Zebb and Zephyr. I also love spending time with my family and friends. Taking cruises, spending time at the shore, and watching the NBA make me the most happy. Oh and shopping!
Hi, my name is Bonnie and I am the Office Manager. My dental experience started as a receptionist in 1989. Through the years, I’ve worn many hats while raising our children with my husband. My focus has always been around children. When our own kids were young, I ran a home day care so that I could be home with my own children while caring for others for 8 years. Later, I was the Operations Manager for a transportation company, providing transportation for children with special needs to and from school. Overall, I have 16+ years in the dental field as well, which is where I’ve always felt the most at home.
Joining Just 4 Kidz Dentistry with Dr. Celeste and her staff combines all of my experiences working with children in a management capacity and I couldn’t have asked for a better group of women to work with.
I am very fortunate to be part of a large family and enjoy spending time with my mother, siblings and their families as much as possible. My husband, a chef, and I really enjoy spending time together in the kitchen creating amazing meals, laughing and listening to music.
Hi! My name is Mia and I am the Front Desk Coordinator for Just 4 Kidz Dentisty. I’ve worked for a general dentist for 22 years and am excited to join Just 4 Kidz. Getting to work in a pediatric office is a new adventure for me. Sometimes, when they first come in, the kids can be a little nervous. I really enjoy seeing their eyes light up when they realize how much fun it is to be here. Dr. Celeste and the entire staff are so good with the kids! They take their time and really do all that they can to help them feel comfortable and ready to return again and again.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, relaxing by the pool and gardening.
Hi! My name is Melissa and I am Dr. Celeste’s Dental Hygienist. I graduated from Lincoln College of New England in 2012 with an associate’s degree in Dental Hygiene. I have been working in pediatrics since graduating school and have loved every second of it!
Helping our patients and caregivers through the process of dental care is something that is personally and. professionally rewarding. One of my favorite parts of working in pediatrics is being able to watch our patients grow! I am so excited to join this beautiful, new practice and look forward to meeting all of our patients, old and new!
When I’m not at the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two young children, reading, and visiting family and friends!
Hello! My name is Christina! I graduated from Tunxis Community College in 2018 with an Associates Degree in Dental Hygiene. Since graduating, I’ve had the privilege to work as a pediatric dental hygienist and absolutely love it!
I love being able to help educate both the patients and their caregivers about the importance of oral health and to help them through any dental fears they may have during their visit. It’s my goal to meet each child’s oral health needs and to make their dental experience fun and enjoyable!
Outside of the office, I enjoy traveling near and far, spending time with family and friends, playing the piano and practicing photography!
Hello! My name is Marisa and I am one of Dr. Celeste’s Dental Hygienist. I graduated from Tunxis Community College in 2017. In 2011, I started my journey in the dental field as an orthodontic assistant and have been working with children for many years.
Ensuring that every patient has a positive and relaxing experience during their dental visit is my top priority. I look forward to growing with each of my patients and individualizing oral health care education to their needs for a healthier brighter smile.
When I am away from the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband and dogs on our farm where we raise sheep, goats, pigs, turkeys, poultry and a donkey!
Hi, I’m Olivia and I’m one of Dr. Celeste’s Dental Hygienists. I graduated from Lincoln College of New England in 2016. My passion has always been working with children. Before becoming a Dental Hygienist, I worked as a daycare teacher and as a nanny. I’m really excited to continue working with children as a Pediatric Dental Hygienist with Dr. Celeste at Just 4 Kidz Dentistry.
When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending my free time outdoors as much as possible and going for walks with my fiancé, son and golden retriever.
Hi! My name is Amy and I am Dr. Celeste's Dental Assistant. I graduated Dental Assisting school at Tunxis Community College in 2019. I was an elementary school reading teacher for many years. I have always loved working with children and making them smile.

Hello, my name is Barbara, and I am Dr. Vassiliou's Orthodontic Assistant. I graduated in 1988 from Tunxis Community College Dental Assisting Program and I have been in the orthodontic world ever since. I am also a member of the Connecticut and American Dental Assisting Association.
There is nothing more rewarding for me than seeing our patients through the wonderful transformation of having braces. I'm not sure who has the bigger smile, when the braces come off, our patients or myself.
Outside of work, I really love RV traveling with my husband Charlie, our son Kurt and daughter Gretchen. I also love to play a round of golf, go bowling, walking and scrapbooking all of our wonderful photos!
I look forward to meeting you!
Hi, my name is Heather and I am Dr. Vassiliou’s Orthodontic Assistant. I have been doing orthodontics for over 15 years now. I graduated from Concord Career College for Dental Assisting and continue at UF for my orthodontic certificate.
I moved to Connecticut from Florida 5 years ago to Southington and I couldn’t have picked a better town to live in. I am and will always be a southern girl. When I’m not working, I’m spending time with my 17 year old daughter and 2 year old Husky. There’s nothing like a Netflix series on the sofa. I also enjoy traveling and most importantly I love to shop!
