Ormond Beach, FL Orthodontist

Crystal (Treatment Coordinator, Orthodontic Assistant, Community Outreach)

My passion is to serve. I find pure joy in assisting our patients and their families; Ensuring each of them feels comfortable with our office, are well-informed with the procedures being implemented, and are confident they will receive the best care in orthodontics. During the preliminary consultation, I assist Dr. DeSantis with breaking down the procedural processes by explaining treatment options and fees. I will be happy to thoroughly answer any questions you may have.

In my free time, I enjoy staying active through running, biking, and outdoor activities. I have been married for over 25 years and have four wonderful children. We have been a host family to several foreign exchange students and consider it a mission to bring joy to the lives of others through fellowship with family and friends.

April (Chairside Orthodontic Assistant)

I really enjoy working with our patients as they transform their smile and change their lives. It’s amazing to watch each person gain confidence and become more outgoing as they see the change in their appearance. I work in the clinic: seating patients, preparing them for the doctor, and assisting Dr. DeSantis with patient care. I also track and order the clinical supplies.

Originally from Connecticut, I moved to Florida in 2012. I have a baby girl named Callie; she’s a red-headed Chihuahua and also a cancer survivor. In my free time, I like to shop ’til I drop, take trips to Disney and Universal, and host game nights for family and friends on the weekends.

Tabitha (Chairside Orthodontic Assistant)

I thoroughly enjoy the relationships I get to build with our patients and their families. They become an extension of my family and I’m so happy they’re in my life! Because I work as an assistant, I get to know everyone and love seeing each person’s new smile as it appears.

My spouse and I have known each other over 18 happy years. We have an amazing son and a gorgeous daughter that are very active. In my free time, I enjoy decorating the house, reading, activities with my family, and travel when possible. We do not have any pets but stay active with our children and close family.

Kiersten (Chairside Orthodontic Assistant)

I love to see the amazing transformation in our patients’ smiles and confidence during their treatment. My work in the orthodontic clinic includes seating patients, preparing them for the doctor, and assisting Dr. DeSantis with patient care. I look forward to seeing you at your next appointment.

I love spending most of my time with my beautiful daughter and adorable son, our playful pup as well as time with family and friends. I enjoy going to the movies, the beach and being outdoors.

Amy (Insurance/Financial Coordinator)

Having more than 15 years working in all areas of the dental administration field, I enjoy working with our patients, understanding and explaining any insurance benefits and financial questions.  I thoroughly enjoy watching the changes in our patients from start to finish. Building lasting relationships with the families through their experience in our office is what drives me to come to work every day.

Originally from Ohio and married to my love for over 20 years, we have two daughters named Olivia and Phoebe. We have rescue a dog, Mocha, that loves to play fetch and eat treats. Besides being busy parents, we enjoy spending time at the beach, swimming, and enjoying time together as a family.

Phyllis (Marketing Coordinator)

With over 30 years in advertising and marketing,  I enjoy coordinating marketing, advertising and various types of community support for Atlantic Orthodontics. It’s important to educate the community about proper orthodontic health, how we change lives and answer questions about the kinds of treatments available in our state-of-the-art treatment facility.

Born in New York City, I moved to West Palm Beach in 1985 where I met my husband Franz, a Creative Director, during a job interview. Married for over 30 years we have a son, Alex, who is an environmental engineer and recently married to his beautiful wife Bri.  I love gardening, living beach side in Ormond-by-the-sea where I enjoy walking on the beach, hiking, fishing and swimming.

Crystal (CJ) (Scheduling Coordinator)

As a young girl I never thought about pursuing a career in the field of dentistry. Now, after 20 years working professionally in the industry, I can’t imagine doing anything else. One of my greatest rewards is being able to help patients through their orthodontic journey, help to ease dental anxiety and answer questions they might have. Our patients become family and friends.

Born in Denver I’ve lived in Colorado and Arizona enjoying the mountains and desert. My husband and our puppy dogs, Chloe and Chile, now enjoy the beautiful Atlantic Ocean living in Florida. We love entertaining family and friends, game nights and when I get a minute sometimes I might even quilt.
