Renea – Dental Hygienist

Team member since 1990

Why did you choose your profession?

My hometown dentist got me interested in the dental field. I was going to college and wasn’t sure of my destination. When it was time to make a decision about my future, I called up Dr. Steve Beckett (a father figure) and we had a long talk. He knew what I wanted out of a profession and a dental hygiene career fit my schedule perfectly. I’ve been extremely happy with my decision and very proud to be a team member of Dr. Berdy’s periodontal practice.

What are your hobbies and interests?

My kids keep me very busy with all their activities, however, I do plan time for running and various other activities. The beach is always a mental break and gives me peace!

Leslie – Dental Hygienist

Team member since 1989

Why did you choose your profession?

As a child, my older sister’s best friend was a dental hygienist for my family dentist. I used to sit with her in her operatory and watch her with her patients, and I admired her and her skills. I knew from the age of 10 that I wanted to help people with maintaining their oral care.

What are your hobbies and interests?

Scuba diving, boating, anything in the sun, exercise, attending my children’s’ baseball and softball games.

Marsha – Periodontal Surgical Assistant/Registered Nurse

Part of Dr. Berdy’s Team Since 1987

Why did you choose your profession?

As a nurse, working in the hospital at night afforded me little time to be with my small girls. In the dental field, the hours were more flexible, and the employees were off on weekends. It has grown to be such a rewarding job, giving one-on-one care to patients. There have been so many new and challenging aspects of periodontal therapy.

What are your hobbies and interests?

Cooking, reading, walking, babysitting, and playing with my new granddaughter.

Julie – Periodontal Surgical Assistant

Team member since 1987

Why did you choose your profession?

I became interested in the field of dentistry when I first got braces. After 24 years, I get satisfaction helping people take care of their teeth. It’s important to be sensitive to each individual patient’s needs. I also like my profession because of the continued experience and ongoing training I receive in state-of-the-art dentistry.

What are your hobbies and interests?

Gardening is a great gift that I enjoy. My favorite time to plant flowers is early spring so I can enjoy all the new growth and pleasant scents. I also like to camp, hike, bike ride, travel, and cook.

Theresa – Appointment and Treatment Coordinator

Team member since 2011

Why did you choose your profession?

I enjoy helping people improve and maintain their oral health. As a child, I was always fearful of the dentist. Through the years I learned that they only want to help their patients. I wanted a career where I could help make sure people get the care they need.

What are your hobbies and interests?

I love to read. I also enjoy almost any activity that gives me the opportunity to bask in our beautiful Florida outdoors. On the weekends, I like going to the beach, boating, antiquing and doing everything that I can to take advantage of what Florida has to offer.
