Meet the Team



Office Manager 

I was born and raised in Virginia and enjoy being a local native. I have been working in the dental field since 2014 and enjoy establishing close relationships with our patients on a daily basis. I joined Fairfax Periodontal Group in 2020 and enjoy being part of a dynamic team. I look forward to meeting you and making sure your experience with us is remarkable from beginning to end.



Dental Hygienist 

I have been a hygienist for over 35 years.  I have experience in both general dentistry and periodontics. I became a hygienist because I truly enjoy helping people keep their teeth!
I am a single mom of twin girls. I was born and raised in Silver Spring, Maryland.  I am a huge sports fan and love football!
I look forward to meeting you!


Periodontal/Surgical Assistant

I have been in the dental surgery field since 2006. I really enjoy making our patients feel at ease and ensure a positive dental experience. Dr. Howanitz and Dr. Choudhary make my job so much easier each day with their compassion, skill set and respect for not only every patient, but our staff here. 
I am inspired by my children daily. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, shopping and traveling.
