Your dental team at Cape Vista Dental

Our Front Office Team


My name is Michelle, my friends call me Michii. I am the Office Manager here at Cape Vista Dental. I was named after my mom’s best friend & nicknamed by a manager I once had. I don’t really have any hobbies, yet I stay busy with my three beautiful children (and still no grey hairs – haha!). I was born in Berrien Springs, Michigan where I lived for two whole weeks before I left to become a Floridian. I lived down south most of my childhood, and for sixteen years now in the Sanford/Deltona area. I use tattoos, piercings, and fun hair colors to express my adventurous side. 11:11 is my favorite time because I believe in making wishes.

My favorite quote and/or life motto is: “One step at a time.” (hence the tattoo on my foot!)


Hello Everyone! My name is Tonia. I am a true Floridian, born in Daytona Beach and raised in Central Florida.

I currently work at the front desk, greeting you with a smile when you arrive. I have over 30 years of dental experience, from dental assisting, insurance, pediatrics, endodontics, oral surgery and management.

Favorite sports team: GO GATORS (Even though we are a house divided with UF and FSU, in my home. Look forward to meeting you soon!

Hey, y’all! My name is Ashanty, but my friends call me “Ash”. I’m a lead dental assistant. I’ve been in the game since 2017. I’m from New York City. I have a 7 year old, going on 17 lol. He’s my personal comedian. I enjoy spending time with my son, watching movies, shopping, & reading books.

Hi I’m Jemma! I am originally from England, and moved to Florida with my family when I was seven. I have worked in the dental field for over three years now and I love getting to know patients and making their dental experience joyful! My hobbies are going to the beach, hiking, reading, serving at church and spending quality time with my friends and family. I look forward to meeting you soon!

Our Accounts Receivable/Billing Team


Hi, my name is Gail Myers. I am the Accounts Receivable Manager here at Cape Vista Dental. I have worked in the dental field for 8 years and before that, worked in education. I am from the United Kingdom and have been in Florida since 2021. When not working, you can find me spending time with friends and family or with my nose stuck in a good book.

Our Insurance Coordinators


I’m a vintage hippie flower child who loves classic rock, has Detroit Lions Honolulu Blue blood running through my veins, and a Michigan Wolverines war-cry to rival none. I’m authentic, honest to a fault, and loyal to my friends and family, which mean everything to me. Simply stated, I love life and all it has to offer.

“One of the deep secrets in life is that all that is really worth doing is what we do for others.”


What’s that saying: I wasn’t born in the south but I got here as fast as I could! From the time I was a child living in New Hampshire, I always said someday I will live where it does not snow! I got that wish in January of 2003 when I moved with my husband to our Panama City Beach condo where we lived for 13 years before moving in 2016 to DeLand. I now have a house so I have lots of flowers and citrus trees, my neighbors admire that I can get any plant to grow, last year I earned the DeLand Certified Monarch Butterfly Garden plaque.

I am Grannie Jill to seven soon to be eight cute and smart grandkids. So my vacation time is spending time with them, which is far more exciting than going on a cruise!

Our Treatment Coordinators


Hello, my name is Kara, I was born in Buffalo, NY (go Bills) and moved to Florida (go Gators) when I was 9 years old. I am a proud wife and softball mom. I have worked in the dental field for 18 years including assisting and management. I have also worked in the hospital as a Registered Polysomnographer, helping patients with sleep apnea. Now, my two careers have come together and I get to help patients with dental and sleep. I enjoy helping patients feel better, improve their quality of sleep and their smiles. My favorite times are spent with family, friends and going to my daughter’s softball games. Hobbies include crafting, photography, sports and jeeping.

Smile, it is contagious!


Hi, I’m Ioana! My name originates from Hebrew and means “He (God) has favored me”. I am Dr. Tubio and Dr. Saavedra’s Treatment coordinator and I love what I do! I am originally from Romania and if you are wondering where that is, if you have heard about Transylvania and Dracula then you know lol. In my free time, I love spending time with my 3 children and my lovely husband, family is everything to me. One of the many reasons I love working here at Cape Vista is because it is not just an office with employees, we are truly a family here. I look forward to seeing you at your next visit.


Hey, Fam! It’s me, Sheila. Born and raised in Florida. I’m one of very few that can say I’m a true Floridian with some spices and herbs from Puerto Rico. You don’t seem to find them very often, but here I am. Moved to Central Florida in 2000 and have been here since.I have three beautiful children and an awesome spouse that drive me crazy in a great way and keep me on point. From “Mom can we play Fortnite?” to “Mom have you tried the latest makeup trends?” and “Hey babe, can we buy JDM car parts?” You just gotta love them!! They’re my all.

I love to cook, watch movies and listen to all genres of music. My favorite, I must say, is Bachata and I love me all the Twilight saga movies. I can literally put them on repeat.

Oh, and did I tell you that I truly love eating everything and anything? Love trying new foods but most of all Indian food is on the top of my list.

Sometimes quiet and shy but, I always keep a smile because it will brighten up someone’s day. A smile can go a long way and we all know this world needs more smiles.

“So keep on smiling and I’ll see you around.”

I was raised here in central Florida and have practiced dental hygiene in Orange, Seminole, and now, Volusia, counties. I have been a dental hygienist since I was 22-years-old. It has been a long and rewarding career. I guess you just gotta love it.My kids are grown and my husband and I are building a house in Osteen.

Jill C.

Hi, y’all!!! My name is Jill and I am the one who you think makes your gums bleed, (also known as a certified registered dental hygienist). I am a Florida native who did a snow-filled four-year time at The Ohio State University, graduating in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in economics and international business. After graduating, I attended Daytona State College where I perfected my cutting edge dental hygiene and patient education skills. My hobbies include watching and occasionally playing futbol (soccer) and spending time with my family. I’m a huge fan of Barcelona FC, Orlando SC, and obviously the Buckeyes. I enjoy eating tacos de asada with cilantro, onion, 2 limes, and salsa verde on a daily basis.

Hey, guys, my name is Dorothy. I am originally from Chicago. Although I do miss the falls and winters, I now prefer a two-week vacation and coming back to warm up. Some of my favorite ways to spend my time are playing fetch with my coonhound-beagle mix, being with family, traveling, cooking new recipes, outdoor activities, and taking long drives in my Subaru. That’s just a little bit about myself, feel free to share a little bit about you at your next dental hygiene visit with me.

We have two daughters, 5 and 7 years old, and in our free time we love to go to the beach, travel, spend time with friends and watch sports or concerts!
When I’m not taking care of your teeth, I might be busy with some art and craft, playing pickleball or cooking/baking in the kitchen. My favorite dish, of course, is PASTA, I couldn’t live without it!
