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. 



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.

I had to change dentists after mine retired. Dr Saxon was referred by my dentist. I went in this morning with what I thought was a broken filling. They made my appointment the very next day after I called. Turned out I needed a crown. My nerve is extremely hard to get numb. Dr. Saxon was so perfect in handling the numbing process. I have had bad experiences in the past were I was extremely sore for several days following numbing injections. Not so today! Dr. Saxon called me this evening to check in and see how I was doing. First time ever from a Dentist. Was I dissapointed to need a crown, yes, but Dr. Saxon and his assistant walked me through the process. I left with no questions. The crown is being custom made to fit my tooth and a color guide was presented to ensure the crown matches my tooth color. This is the first time for me to change dentists in 15 years. I feel blessed to have found a fabulous dentist that seems to genuinely care for his patients. Not once did I feel like Dr. Saxon was rushing to finish so he could go to another patient. Thank you Dr. Saxon!

All the staff is well prepared for the duties they perform starting at the front desk until I leave. I've always been treated professionally by everyone. I gladly recommend this office to my friends. Keep up the good work!

My insurance listed Saxon Dental as in network. I hadn't been there before but I made an appointment and went today. Talk about a wonderful experience. The very best dental practice I've ever been to. As a new patient they give you a gift, they give you a complete tour of the facility and meet everyone. You are treated like a real person; they make you feel welcome and appreciate you being there. I can't even begin to say how great they are.
