Virginia Veloz

I was born and raised in Lima, Peru where i graduated with honors from Dental School as a  Doctor of Dental Surgery. I've been caring for dental patients since i moved to the U.S in 2000 and started working as a dental assistant in Peterson, New Jersey. Finding a love for dentistry and a desire to further my career I became certified as a Dental Hygienist. Having my DDS degree validated in the USA gave me the opportunity to study orthodontics and I have been an associate member of the International Association of Orthodontics since 2009. After moving to Florida in 2005, I joined Dr. Szczepanik's team in 2006 and I am thrilled to be a part of a dynamic team whose focus is on the health of their patients.

When not working, I enjoy spending time with my two boys and coaching the volleyball club I  started in 2014.

I graduated from Valencia College with my degree in Dental Hygiene in 1999. Shortly after graduating, I joined the office of Dr. Szczepanik. Today I continue to enjoy my profession as a hygenist and find it very rewarding. Each patient is unique and helping them improve their oral health gives me great satisfaction. 

In my spare time, I enjoy being 'mom' to my two girls and taking them to their activities.

I am a graduate of the National Education Center with a certification of a registered Dental Assistant. I moved to Orlando, Florida in 1997.

I enjoy every aspect of dentistry and love the fact that we can make multiple patients happy by transforming their smiles and increasing their self-esteem.

 

 

Bobbie Denson

Born and raised in Queens New York, I moved to the Orlando area at a young age.I completed high school here and move on to my College Degree. In my later years I stumbled on to the dental field where I found my calling.I loved being a part of the process of making others smile. There is nothing more rewarding than having a hand in the process. Working with Dr. Szczepanik has been an extreme pleasure. He makes it his goal to always be on the cutting edge of technology and makes sure he offers his patients only the very best.There are so many things that I have learned and adapted while working  with him. One that sticks in my head only because it is practiced every day is “Do it only once and do it right”.  I have been a part of Dr. Szczepanik’s team for the past 12 years and I'm looking forward to the next 12! When I'm not creating “Smiles” I enjoy spending time with my family.
