Originally from Port Charlotte, FL, Maria grew up helping out in her father’s dental practice.
After high school, she lived in Naples, Italy, Tampa, FL, & Rowlette, TX before attending dental
hygiene school in Pensacola, FL. There, she enjoyed the pristine beaches of the Gulf Coast and
watching the Blue Angels Flying demonstrations. In 1992, Maria established herself in
Woodstock, GA, and has enjoyed caring for the individual needs of her dental hygiene patients
for 30 years. She cherishes her growing family of her daughter, Avery, with husband, Joey, &
her two sons Matthew and Ross, with wife, Chelsea, and grandkids, Tuck, Smith, and Hallie
James. Maria feels blessed that they all live nearby. Outside of work, she stays busy being ‘Gigi’
to her grandkids, taking care of her pets, and traveling when she gets the chance. One of her
favorite places to spend downtime is in the Appalachian Mountains near Sylva, NC. Maria looks forward to meeting all of you.
