Livia, Dental Assistant 

(Photo Coming Soon!)

‘Behind the Scenes Queen’ is Livia’s informal title because she meticulously coordinates all aspects of clinical care prior to your visit. Livia supports Dr. Whitmore, Keri and Melly in the treatment suites where care is provided to you. She ensures your comfort throughout treatment.

Livia is a naturally warm and caring person. She gains great satisfaction from relieving pain for our patients, getting to know each person in our care, and being able to provide something extra to make each visit to our office especially comfortable.

Originally from Brazil, Livia relocated to our area with her husband when he accepted an engineering position. At the time, Livia did not speak English. Our smart Livia learned English in two years flat, worked her way through dental assisting college, had a baby and landed herself a job here. We are tremendously proud of Livia for her positive outlook and drive to improve the lives of others.

Away from the office Livia enjoys spending time with her family and traveling back to Brazil to enjoy its beautiful beaches and relaxed culture.
