Kelsey, Office Manager

I am originally from College Park, MD, and I currently live in Elkridge, Maryland, with my caring husband and beautiful daughter.

As the office manager at Judd Dentistry, I’m always available to help you feel right at home within the practice. I always go above and beyond to build warm relationships that last for a lifetime!

I have a genuine ability to make everyone feel like a long-lost friend, even if we are meeting for the very first time. Patients adore my cheerful personality, and I enjoy working for a practice with a fantastic team that feels like family.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time outdoors and traveling. I love going to the beach, hiking, and watching my daughter play softball.

Nyasha, Front Desk Coordinator

My name is Nyasha Willis. I am from Washington DC. I was raised as the oldest of 6 siblings by my strong and beautiful grandmother who instilled in me the value of “doing good to all people”. I am a mother of 2 wonderful children, and they are the absolute best part of my life.

I chose dentistry because I love helping others achieve good oral health. I enjoy helping strategize a plan for my patients’ oral health, and helping out dealing with insurance. I believe dentistry can be fun, and it’s a very important part of our overall health; if your mouth is sick, then your entire body is sick.

The best part of my job is seeing patients smile when they walk out of their treatment.

In my free time I enjoy cooking, swimming, doing my hair, exercising, and traveling. One of my favorite places in the world is Aruba and the Dominican Republic. One day I would love to go sky diving or rock climbing.

I currently reside in Howard County with my amazing husband and our lovely daughter.

I’ve been in the dental profession for more than 20 years, and I couldn’t be happier. I genuinely care about our patients’ needs and enjoy finding methods to improve their oral health at our office.

I consider myself a compassionate person who profoundly understands those who feel anxious about their dentist visits. Therefore, I will do anything I can to make sure you feel comfortable in our office and around our wonderful doctors.

In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, dancing, movie dates with my husband, and lots of family time!

Antia, Front Desk

I was born and raised in The Bronx, NY. Both my parents are from the Dominican Republic, which is why my first language is Spanish. I currently live in Columbia, MD, with my beautiful daughter Zayla, my boyfriend, and our dog, Barrack.

I’ve been working in the dental field for more than two years now, and I couldn’t be happier. I found my true passion in helping people find solutions to their problems.

The best part of my job is helping you transform your life while building a meaningful relationship in the process. Plus, I get to work with a fun and incredible team every day!

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, and taking long walks with our dog. One day I hope to add skydiving to my list of activities.

Olga, Front Desk Coordinator

My parents are both from the Dominican Republic, but I was born and raised in Bronx, NY, and learned English at 9. I moved to Maryland at the age of 15 with my family, where I found amazing people, experiences, and memories. I’m also a mother to a fabulous, almost 9-year-old daughter.

I became interested in dentistry after I visited the dentist. I listened intently to all the terms and all the work I had to get done and started doing my own research to learn more. But, of course, Google isn’t the perfect source to understand something when there’s so much information out there, so I decided to dive deeper and pursue a career in it!

The best part of my job is learning and applying that knowledge to change someone’s life. I love helping people, so being a part of changing someone’s life for the better is a privilege for me.

My personality brings value to the office because I’m coachable, always willing to help, and love to get my job done. I’m also a very positive person, understanding, hard-working, and love to work with others, especially at Judd Dentistry.

Outside of the office, I love to spend time with my family and cook. And, my adventurous side loves anything with heights and the sky, from skydiving to bungee jumping.

I’ve already accomplished a few things on my bucket list, but one thing that I would love to do is visit Dubai and experience the food, culture, and fun activities in the desert.

Laura, Front Desk Coordinator

I’m a native to Howard County, MD. I’m also a proud mother of four young adults and a happy wife to my wonderful husband, Randy. We currently live in Riviera Beach, MD, with our Shiz Tzu, Pepper.

Ever since I was little, my dad used to tell me that our smile is the first thing people see, and we need to make sure it is bright and beautiful! This stuck with me and inspired me to pursue a career in dentistry.

I just love working with such great people at Judd Dentistry! Even though our group is continuing to grow in size, we remain a close-knit family. For me, it is a privilege to work with Dr. Judd and help her fulfill her mission to provide quality care to her community.

In my free time, my husband and I enjoy trekking around in our Jeep Wrangler with the top off! I also enjoy bowling with friends, game nights with family, and dinners with our four adult children.

Yamileth, Dental Assistant

Hello, my name is Yamileth, but you can call me Yami. I’m a proud mother to a beautiful son currently living in Columbia, MD.

I chose dentistry because of my love for science. I wanted a career where I could express my passion, and the dental field was ideal for me. I’ve been a dental assistant for five years now, and I wouldn’t change it for anything.

Meeting new people is what I enjoy most about my job. I make it my goal to build a genuine relationship with you to understand your needs better and devise the best way to help you.

When outside the office, I love traveling, going to the beach, and spending time with my son and family. I’ve also learned how to do makeup through YouTube, and I love it!

Vanessa, Dental Assistant

I was born in Chicago, IL, but raised in various states. I most recently moved from Colorado to Florida and now reside in Glen Burnie, MD with my daughters Valerie and Nayeli (both are currently in middle school) and my significant other Ricardo, who proudly serves in the US Army. I also have a bonus daughter who is currently attending Southern Mississippi in pursuit of a nursing degree.

I am new to the dental field, and have been given the opportunity of a lifetime here at Judd Dentistry! I started from the ground working as a sterilization tech and am working my way up to the top. As a dental assistant, I’ve been encouraged to continue my education in the dental field, and my next step is to become a hygienist!

I love everything about working here at Judd Dentistry! The learning never ends. Our team has welcomed me into the family and I feel right at home. I really enjoy working with the diverse people who walk through our doors. I get to help them get their million dollar smile, hear their stories, and make them feel as comfortable as possible during their visit.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, cooking, photography, and making new memories – “Life is not about how many breaths you take, but about the moments that take your breath away…”

Camryn, Dental Assistant

I was born and raised in Maryland. I currently live in Crownsville, MD with my two fur-babies Chewy and Odie. I have a big family, including 7 siblings who I love spending time with, most often going to my younger siblings’ sporting events.

I was introduced to dentistry by a friend while living in Tennessee (I lived there for 3 years). So I decided to go to school and get a dental assisting diploma. I loved all aspects of dentistry and the technology involved, but my favorite part of working at Judd Dentistry is meeting new people and making their visit enjoyable.

While at work I love to talk about our patients’ lives, I think that makes me an easy person to talk to, so I can make their dental experience great.

In my free time I love spending time with my family, going to sporting events, the beach, and having adventures with friends. The best quote I’ve ever heard, and my favorite one, is “You only regret the things you didn’t do, and the chances you didn’t take.”

LaToya, Dental Hygienist

I currently live near Columbia, MD, with my loving husband and our beautiful children.

My first step into dentistry was when I graduated from Baltimore City Community College with a degree in Dental Hygiene. I then became part of the Judd Dentistry hygiene team in 2013. I have more than 15 years of experience in this field, and I’m as in love with it now as I was in the beginning.

Every time you come in for your hygiene appointment, I strive to make it a positive and pleasant experience. I’m a genuine people-person who especially loves working with children and elderly patients (I love to hear their stories).

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending as much time as possible with my family and friends doing all sorts of fun things. I also enjoy traveling and discovering new places.

Taylor
Dental Hygienist

Taylor, Dental Hygienist

I grew up in Ellicott City, MD, with my brother and half-sister. I received my education from the Allegany College of Maryland.

I grew up surrounded by dentistry. My mom was a dental hygienist, and she inspired my passion for the dental field. My goal as a hygienist is to educate and help patients of all ages to maintain their best possible oral health!

Building relationships with all our patients is what I love the most about my work. It brings me great joy to learn a little bit more about their lives at each visit. It is also very rewarding to positively impact my patients’ overall oral health and the appearance of their smiles.

When I’m not helping someone with their oral health, I love to travel, exercise, bake, spend time with friends and family, and be as creative as possible.

I’m originally from South Korea, but I moved to the US when I was just a teenager.

After graduating from the University of Maryland, I became a Registered Dental Hygienist and decided to join the Judd Dentistry team in 2010.

I’m thrilled to be part of this incredible team and to be able to help so many patients achieve total body wellness.

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful daughter and my caring husband.

Madisen, Dental Hygienist

I’m from a small town in southern Ohio called Chillicothe. I now live in Maryland and am happily married. I also have a German shorthaired pointer puppy named Greta.

When I first started to look into career possibilities, I wanted a profession where I could interact with new people daily and make a difference in people’s lives. It is no secret I love teeth, and I love people, so dentistry was the right fit for me!

Every day I come to work with one clear purpose – to provide my patients with high-quality care in a friendly atmosphere. I’ll always listen to your individual needs and try to address them with the utmost sense of respect and compassion.

Away from the office, I spend most of my time with my husband and our dog. We love to travel, go on hikes, listen to live music, and cook. One day I hope we could all climb Mount Kilimanjaro!

I was born and raised in Elkridge and have been lucky enough to raise my daughter in the same city!

I chose to have a career in dentistry because of the daily challenges and the ever-advancing technology it provides – It keeps me on my toes!

As the Spa Coordinator at Judd Dentistry, it brings me true happiness to welcome you into our dental family. I’m always ready to greet you with a kind smile and a happy heart as you walk through our doors.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending quality time with my daughter and our two kittens, Romeo and Juliet. I’m also currently in school studying sonography.

Mira, Esthetician

I am a Northeast Baltimore native who is currently residing with her cats in east Baltimore.

I got my start in the beauty industry as a makeup artist, but after some years in school, I found aesthetics to be my true passion.

I consider myself a compassionate and humorous person who loves working with people. My goal is always to make you feel even more beautiful than you already are in a relaxing environment.

My favorite pastimes include creating art, playing with makeup, reading, hiking, yoga, and gardening. Although I’m in the beauty industry, I enjoy getting my hands dirty!

I was very uneasy about going to a dentist. I had multiple bad experiences at other practices. But this office made me feel comfortable the whole time. They went over every single detail with me. Everyone at Judd Dentistry is super friendly. I will be coming back! Thank you!
