Meet Our Team
Hi! My name is Nancy and I am the Office 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 Maria, I am the patient care coordinator at Just 4 Kidz Dentistry. I moved from Massachusetts to Ct 16 years ago, with my husband and two children and started my dental career. I am honored to be part of the staff at such a wonderful, caring, knowledgeable and child friendly environment.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, two cats Jerry and Diesel, as well as, relaxing on our boat enjoying the warm weather.
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!
Hi! My name is Nikko and I am one of Dr. Celeste's Dental Hygienists. I graduated from the University of New Haven in 2004 with an Associate's Degree in Dental Hygiene.
At the age of 11, I knew I wanted to be a pediatric dental hygienist. Working with children has always been my passion. There is nothing more rewarding than gaining the trust and confidence of a scared patient. My goal is to motivate patients with oral hygiene information that they can utililze well into adulthood.
When I'm not at the office, I enjoy traveling with my husband, photography, dancing, teaching my dog Jojo new tricks, sewing and running 5k fun runs.
Hi, My name is Jessica and I am Dr. Celeste's Dental Assistant. I graduated Dental Assisting school at Briarwood College in 1999. I truly love working with children and making them as comfortable as possible, in addition to seeing their smiling faces when they leave.
When I am not working, I love spending time with my husband and two wonderful small children making as many memories as I can.
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.
When I am not working, I love spending time with my two children, traveling and reading.
Hello, my name is Barbara, and I am Dr. Vassilliou'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!
