Bradenton team

Teresa

Senior Dental Assistant

I have worked in dentistry for 38+ amazing years; about 30 of those in this office. I help our doctors provide superior quality dentistry on every patient. I believe it to be an honor to be part of the process of creating beautiful new smiles. I always have our patients’ best interests at heart. 

I love my family. I have been married to my awesome husband for more than 35 years. We have two grown sons (both married) and five grandchildren; they mean the world to me. When I have free time, I enjoy arts and crafts, mostly scrapbooking and card making.

Susan

Dental Assistant / Treatment Coordinator for Dr. Klement

I joined the field as a dental assistant in 1985. I talk eagerly to our patients and have an easy laugh that is contagious. I love being able to make others feel better, and I find it incredibly rewarding to do that professionally. My goal is to provide the finest level of dental care. I work chairside and behind the scenes to help make each procedure smooth and enjoyable. Our doctors treat all patients and team like family, which makes our office feel like a home away from home.

Michelle

Dental Assistant

I have been a proud member of our team for almost two decades, and I enjoy being a part of the process of transforming smiles. I assist chairside, take X-rays and impressions, chart progress, and do treatment planning. In all of it, I look up to and respect our doctors because of the high-quality dentistry they provide. This makes my job enjoyable, and I always look forward to getting to know our patients while making their visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.

I am happily married to Brian, and have two children: Marrisa is grown and Devin is a teen. I also have a bulldog named Cooper. I love spending time with my family and enjoy working out, shopping, boating, and relaxing on the beach.

Sheryl

Dental Assistant

I always have a smile on my face at work because I truly love working in our office. My job is to make our patients’ experiences as comfortable as possible, and I have a great time doing this. I excel at helping others overcome their fears and I always have an encouraging word or two during procedures. Our patients are always sure to conquer their fears with me, and it is easy to do because of the smooth, painless work our talented doctors perform.

I am happily married and have two super dogs, Doodle and Annabelle. I enjoy reading, cooking, and hunting.

Virginia (Ginny)

Treatment Coordinator for Dr. Jungman

I joined this awesome team in June 2015. I received my dental assistant certification in 1983, and am trained in CPR and ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support). I completely enjoy dentistry and the excellent dentistry provided here. As Dr. Jungman’s treatment coordinator, I assist in the treatment plans generated by the doctor. I am responsible for helping you schedule and manage your treatment in progress, step by step. I help you understand the treatment recommended by using everyday language and can answer any concerns you may have. I understand that you, as our patient, have a lot going on in your life, so I enjoy helping you progress smoothly through your treatment experience. Dr. Jungman is a very popular dentist, as is everyone in our practice, so I act as your liaison to communicate any concerns you need addressed.

I was married in 1980 to my high-school sweetheart, Morgan! I have one daughter, Michelle, and two sons, Morgan, Jr., and Marshall. I now have five amazing grandchildren: Jason, Luke, Trey, Caleb, and baby Mabel. I love being a part of the body of Christ and sing in the choir at our church.

Teri

Dental Assistant

I love welcoming patients to our practice and helping them enjoy their time here. Our interactions are my favorite part of coming to work, and they have made me look forward to coming into the office every day for the past ten years. I am especially sensitive to our more anxious patients. It is pure joy to help those with fears of the dentist come to feel good about their appointments. Our doctors’ good-natured personalities make this easy.

I lived in Washington for 30 years, but have come back to my roots here in Florida. It is great to be back in the “Sunshine State.” I have a great family, which includes my husband Frank, amazing son, two incredible grandsons, two horses, a dog, and a cat.

Sheri

Dental Assistant

Though I joined our office in 2011, I have been working in dentistry for more than 30 years. I feel very fortunate to have found such a great place to work and a team that genuinely cares for every patient. My goal is to make our patients’ experiences comfortable and fun. I especially enjoy helping patients overcome their fears and look forward to their next visit.

I have wonderful twin daughters, Randi and Jenna; a grandson, Corbin; and two more grandchildren on the way! I enjoy any time I can spend with my family, the company of good friends, boating, and traveling.

Crystal

Dental Assistant / Treatment Coordinator for Dr. Varga

I was born and raised here in the Bradenton area and completed my dental assistant training at Manatee Technical College. I joined this amazing and joyful practice in August 2015. As a child, my dentist and his assistant made my dental experience very pleasant and relaxing, which made me decide that I wanted to provide the same care to others. I have the opportunity to do that here. My favorite parts of my job are interacting with my patients, and being a part of this wonderful team ... and being able to enhance someone’s smile is my daily goal!

Melissa

Dental Assistant

After having grown up in Alaska, I moved across the country to Florida in 2000. I received my dental assisting certificate from MTC. While an intern at the college, I was given the opportunity to travel to Guatemala with a dental team and provide dental care to people in remote villages. What I enjoy most about dentistry is assisting chairside while we recreate our patients’ smiles, as well as improving facial aesthetics and TMJ issues with Botox® alongside Dr. Varga.

Jessica

Dental Assistant

I graduated from the dental assisting program at MTC and was blessed to have been chosen as an intern and then an employee at this wonderful office. Not only did I learn a lot in school but now I get to learn from my team members and patients on a daily basis. The best part of my job is helping my patients get back on track with their dental care.

When I’m not at the baseball field cheering on my son, you can catch me walking the beach, fishing, or camping.

Lisa

Certified Registered Dental Hygienist

I am here to help you reach your dental goals by encouraging you to achieve a healthy smile and body. New research ties oral health to total body health. I work to educate you on the best oral hygiene routines and help you progress on schedule with your treatment. I pride myself on staying up to date on dental products. I served as past president of the Florida Dental Hygiene Association and the American Dental Hygienists’ Association.

Karen

Certified Registered Dental Hygienist

I love to make people smile and laugh. Though I currently work as a dental hygienist, I started my career as an assistant in this office in 1995. I really enjoyed my work and decided to return to school in order to become a hygienist. I left the office and was a stay-at-home mom to my son and daughter while finishing my degree in dental hygiene. I am very happy to have been back at our office since 2010, and use all of my collective experience to provide incredible care.

Now that my son is a Marine and my daughter is in college, I have more free time. I like riding my horse and taking my dogs with me everywhere.

Natasha

Certified Registered Dental Hygienist

I believe that smiles are a universal language, and that is what attracted me to dental hygiene. I attended Pasco-Hernando Community College and earned my A.S. in dental hygiene in 2005. My career has mainly been in the clinical setting, although I did spend some time teaching at a local technical college and worked in health information management for ten years. I am a Florida native and recently moved to Palmetto from Pinellas County. I have been a part of this amazing team since February 2015. I pride myself on providing my patients with the best dental care.

When I’m not shining up your smiles, I enjoy working out at the gym, bike riding, and boating.

Jenn

Certified Registered Dental Hygienist

I love to see people smile! It is my pleasure to make each visit an enjoyable experience. I am happy to be a part of such an amazing group of professionals who truly care about their patients’ well-being.

I was born and raised in Bradenton and have a long family history in the area. I began working in dentistry almost 20 years ago. Over the years, I have held several positions, including reception and assisting. I completed course work for my dental hygiene AS at State College of Florida and my BS at St. Petersburg College. I have been an active member of ADHA, where I served as a delegate and president for our local component. I also enjoyed working as a clinical instructor, but my favorite part of dental hygiene is chairside where I now spend all of my time. I strive to stay informed on the latest health information and incorporate quality care that is comprehensive to each individual. I look forward to establishing a lasting relationship as part of your team of healthcare professionals.

Scarlett

Office Manager

I have been very happy to be a part of our team for more than 20 years. I get a really good feeling when I witness the great work that our dentists and team do. Their work literally changes lives. Because I do so much of my work behind the scenes, you may not often see me, but I always strive to keep our office running smoothly and ensure that our patients’ needs are taken care of.

When I’m out of the office, I like to travel, craft, and visit our beautiful beaches.

ChristineChristine

Assistant Office Manager

I was born and raised in North Dakota and in June 2017 moved to Florida to be close to the beach. My dental career started in 1993 at an oral surgery practice. From there I went to manage a general dentist office until my move here. In finding this office, I have found my dental home here in Florida. The doctors and staff are amazing and treat our patients as if they are family.

When not working, I enjoy working out and going to the beach.

Kelly

Business Assistant

I started my dental career in California at the tender age of 16: filing charts, developing X-rays, cleaning rooms, and eventually assisting the doctor chairside. I lived in Florida for 20 years before moving to North Georgia. When we decided to return to Florida, I began my search for a new “work home.” The rest, as they say, is history. I’ve been lucky to be a part of this amazing office since 2012, and can honestly say it’s the best place I’ve ever worked in my 30-plus years in the field. All of the doctors and team take the business of dentistry very seriously, and we pride ourselves on providing superior care, but do it with a sense of fun and family.

I have been married to my husband Doug since 1992. We have two terrific sons, Nick who is currently attending USF Tampa—Go Bulls!—and Neal ... and an adorable rescue Chihuahua mix, Tucker. When I’m not in the office or spending time with my family, I enjoy reading, working out, and trying new recipes.

Kim

Business Assistant

I moved here from Southern California to be near my daughter, her husband, and my two wonderful grandsons. I’ve been working in the dental field for 30 years, and joined this practice in March 2015. I feel very fortunate to have found such a great office to work with. Everyone here has made me feel like part of their “work family.” I’m proud to be a part of the high-quality dentistry we provide to all our patients.

I enjoy people, water sports, and just relaxing at one of the many beautiful beaches here in Florida.

Kathy B.

Business Assistant

I am one of the first team members that patients see when they enter our office, and again when they leave. I am proud to say I have been a part of this amazing team since 2003. Our doctors go above and beyond to please our patients and treat them like family members. It is a wonderful feeling to see our patients leave with a healthy and confident smile.

I love making people laugh and giving our patients a personal touch. I have a gentle and kind personality, and I really enjoy laughing. The work here is great for a person like me because it is all about making smiles and improving others’ lives. Our team enjoys the work, and they all provide a professional level of care. I keep the office running on time, take care of finances, and assist the dentists with procedures. I make sure that our patients enjoy their time here.

I am happily married and live an active life. I enjoy running, working out, and walking on the beach. I also love spending time with my grandchildren.

Brenda

I have enjoyed working in the field as a dental assistant for more than 25 years. The highlight of my job is making my patients laugh and helping them feel comfortable and at ease.

I have three wonderful children and am blessed with four amazing grandchildren. I enjoy being outdoors any chance I get and working in my backyard.

Sam

Dental Assistant

I moved to Apollo Beach from Virginia with my new husband, Lyle, and lab-pit mix, Millie. Family and friends are very important to me, which is why I am so grateful to be a part of the team at KJV. I love practicing at an office that has a great reputation for developing relationships with its patients; this has given me the opportunity to get to know many amazing new people. I always look forward to meeting new patients and helping them achieve their dental goals. I genuinely enjoy aesthetic dental work and hope to expand my knowledge within this area of dentistry.

When I’m not at the office, I enjoy spending my time swimming with my dog, doing crafts, or attending tea parties.

Faith

Certified Registered Dental Hygienist

I have been practicing dental hygiene since 1983, and the last 20 years have been spent with this office. I am very proud to work for our dentists, who are all professional and ethical in their treatments, and who truly care about each patients’ health as a whole. Being a dental hygienist, I am aware of the many links between oral and whole body health.

I am married to the love of my life and I have two boys, three stepchildren, and eight grandchildren. I love traveling, nature, photography, crafts, and critters. Each of my patients gets a memento on his or her appointment card.
