Meet The Staff


Practice Manager

I have been with Saxon Dental since we opened in 2006.  My 22 years in dentistry has made me very proficient with dental insurance and other aspect of being a practice manager.  They call me the go-to person for all your insurance questions.  I will make you feel like part of the Saxon family. Over the years I have built some great relationships with our patients.

I have lived in Orange City for over 40 years where I graduated from Deland High in 1992.  I have two beautiful girls and three step-children who I call my own.   I love spending time with the kids, fiance, friends and family. In my free time I enjoy fishing, camping, line dancing and going on adventures. In 2018 I backpacked the Appalachian Trail in Tennesse/NC for 4 days. 

I love working at Saxon Dental. I have know Dr. Patel since 1999 and to this day love being part of his team/family.  It is a pleasure to work with all my teammates, who I consider my second family. 


Dental Hygienist

Bridget aids patients in developing a thorough understanding of the effects of oral health on the body.  Her favorite part is building those family relationships with every clients so she can help them feel comfortable and maybe even have a few laughs as they visit with her.

With a Master's degree in healthcare administration, she has developed a desire for the continuous pursuit of knowledge so can she apply it to help others.  

Her bubbly personality put other at ease.  She will be delighted to serve you with your dental needs when you come in for your hygiene visit. 



I have been working in the dental field since 1991.  My years of experience have helped me build my patients self-esteem towards their smile.  I love to see patients come in with dental issues and seeing them come out happy and smiling.

In my spare time I work helping my husband in our family owned car repair shop.  I love my dogs and love snuggling up with them.  I have two teenage children so all spare time is spent between their schedules and recreation.  I love the beach and anything related to the water. From fishing to deep sea diving.

I joined Saxon Dental recently in 2019 and I already feel like part of the team.
