I have a Bachelor of Science from SUNY Empire State College. My career started as a school and community dental hygienist in New York State with the Eastman Dental Center, University of Rochester. I worked with postdoctoral dental residents in research and education of the management of pre-school through high school ages, including special needs and geriatric patients.
In 1995 I joined this great team of doctors and coworkers. It is a joy to spend my days with them as we provide our family of patients with the best care, comfort, knowledge, and expertise ... and to see them leave with a smile!
For more than 20 years, my husband and I have enjoyed the Florida sunshine and all it has to offer. We are now living the best leisure time ever, volunteering with Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs to foster, train, and socialize German Shepherds. These exceptionally loving and quiet dogs will live and work with one of our veterans or first responders, to alert and assist with the person’s specific medical needs.
Administration, Expanded Functions Dental Assistant
I graduated from James Lorenzo Walker Technical Institute in 1994 as an expanded functions dental assistant and have completed hundreds of hours of continuing education. I’ve been blessed to work in many practices in both Lee and Collier Counties, including orthodontics, endodontics, cosmetic dentistry, oral surgery, and prosthodontics.
In 2016, I joined Dr. Clary, Dr. Fueredi, and this wonderful team. Handling administrative tasks, I strive to provide patients with the ultimate dental experience and help them navigate their dental home. I focus on patient service, ease of scheduling, explaining treatment options, and answering questions so patients are informed, as well as maintaining a comfortable atmosphere.
I grew up in Naples, attended Naples High School, and married my husband Jack, who also grew up here. I have three children and am enjoying raising them as a second-generation Naples family. I like traveling, boating, socializing, and attending my children’s numerous activities. After years in the restaurant business, I love our ever-changing restaurant scene! I also own a successful dental staffing company, which provides temporary and full-time professional placement.
Expanded Functions Dental Assistant
I love being an expanded functions dental assistant. I work closely with Drs. Clary and Fueredi as they treat our patients and make a wonderful difference in each person’s smile.
I’ve been with the doctors and my coworkers for almost 15 years. We feel like family: the doctors, staff, and our patients! My duties include assisting during procedures, ordering supplies, coordinating treatment, and being a team leader.
My loving husband Ranferi and I have two children: our creative artist, our daughter Nicole, and our soccer pro, our son Tony. We love to spend quality time together, especially traveling!
Certified and Registered Dental Hygienist
I attended Florida Southwestern State College, where I completed the dental hygiene program. While in school, I worked at this office as a front desk administrator. After finishing my bachelor’s degree, I worked at a pediatric and special needs practice for one and a half years, then returned to Clary and Fueredi as a full-time hygienist in August 2017.
I work with patients to identify dental health issues, design the treatment plan, and offer nutritional counseling, tobacco cessation advice, and periodontal assessments. My passion is to make sure patients are comfortable during their hygiene visits. I really enjoy helping people understand the connection between oral health and overall well-being and empowering them to make positive changes. This is a remarkable office where we all care about our patients.
I was born and raised in SWFL. I currently live in North Fort Myers with my boyfriend Stephen and our two rescued pit bulls, Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne. I spend basically all of my free time with our dogs: playing, training, napping, and admiring how adorable they are! I also love cooking, gardening, crafting, and refinishing old wooden furniture.
I started working in the dental field in 1988 and joined Drs. Clary and Fueredi in 1997. I have 30 years of experience listening and learning at the front desk and I love every minute of it. I especially like meeting patients and building relationships with them. I strive to meet the expectations of the doctors, deliver exceptional customer service, and ensure everyone has pleasant, worry-free visits.
The doctors and staff here are warm, welcoming, and professional. They go out of their way to make each patient feel confident and comfortable with the dental treatment.
I started working as a dental assistant in 2008 while attending dental hygiene school. In 2013, I joined this team and these amazing doctors and immediately knew I’d found my professional home. I assess each patient’s oral health, provide preventive dental care, and educate patients about homecare strategies and nutrition.
I enjoy patient interaction and establishing relationships with each person in my care. I’m devoted to teaching people about their oral health and inspiring them to maintain it. That is true of Drs. Clary and Fueredi and the staff, too: We care for patients like family and want the best for them.
I grew up in New Jersey and moved to Naples in 2012 with my husband Adam. I enjoy spending time with Adam, our beautiful daughter Quinn, and our fun-loving dog, Dexter. I also enjoy boating and going to the beach, to take advantage of all that Naples offers!
My career in the dental field started in 2015. I graduated from Lindsay Hopkins Technical College in Miami, and, while studying there, interned at a clinic associated with Jackson Memorial Hospital. My job is to make every patient as comfortable as he or she can feel while sitting in the dental chair.
I am happy to support our patients and help them through any anxiety they might experience. Dr. Clary and Dr. Fueredi go above and beyond to make sure our patients have positive visits and the team does the same.
I’m originally from Miami and recently moved to Naples with my boyfriend Nick. I love having so much easy access to parks, all of the areas for bike riding, and, of course, the beautiful Naples sunsets.
I wear many hats at Clary and Fueredi, but work mainly behind the scenes in the back office to ensure we’re organized and ready to serve our patients. I prepare charts, verify patient insurance, handle payroll and accounts receivable, and order our supplies.
Dr. Clary, Dr. Fueredi, and our team members truly value each patient and each other. We are committed to having the most modern dental office to provide the best possible care. I am happy to be empowered in making decisions to improve the overall patient experience and strive to keep people smiling!
I’m a first-generation Cuban-American, born in Miami. I moved to Naples in 2000, am married, and have a son who was born in Naples. I enjoy all outdoor activities under the Florida son. I love boating and hopping on the back of my husband’s Harley Davidson!
