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.
Millissa (Scheduling Coordinator)
I love building connections with patients and their families at Atlantic Orthodontics. It’s rewarding to meet people at the beginning of treatment and see each become happier and more confident as they achieve a great smile! I work with patients and parents on scheduling appointments that are best for their schedule.
My free time is spent with my family and pets in the Palm Coast area. I was lucky enough to marry to my best friend, Jonathan, in April 2020. I have a 13 year old son that is currently in braces and are expecting a child in February 2021. Our furry family consists of two white cats and a brown dog. We often spend weekends going to the beach, movies, reading, and working on our home. My favorite holiday is Friendsgiving!
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)
