Dental / Office Assistant
I work in the dental office part time to free me up to take care of our 7 year old son and 13 year old step son and our 5 year old adopted dog daughter Belle as well as my husband of 8 years Jeff.
I attended McDowell high school where I was a competitive swimmer and spent my summer’s life guarding at many interesting places, however my favorite place was Presque Isle State Park on Lake Erie.
I graduated college from Clarion University in Clarion Pennsylvania with a Bachelors of Science in Marketing. My father raised me as a Steelers Fan so you can talk football with me all day long.
I have spent the past 9 years working in the dental field. First for a dental practice management company, helping other dentists with their customer service and dental marketing. Then as the Practice Manager in my father’s Western Pa. Dental Office. When I moved to Virginia in December I moved into dental assisting and I really enjoy comforting the patients and helping the doctor through the procedures.
When I am not in the office I am running my sons around, our youngest Colin is a Black Belt, so we go from the dojang to the soccer field and then to do homework.
If I am not driving around with my children I enjoy learning about nutrition and health and do my best to eat as a Vegan. I love to spend time in the kitchen cooking all kinds of food for my family. In the summer I love going out on our boat to the lake and traveling to visit our family in Chicago, Pittsburgh and Erie.
Certified Dental Assistant
I was born in Peru and moved to Virginia in 2008.
I am excited to have joined the team at Sterling Dental Center. I’m here to assist the doctor, and the hygiene team with our care, and I am very glad to be part of it. I try my best to make patients feel comfortable by being gentle and calm. I love hearing great comments from patients when they leave our office, and I also enjoy helping patients overcome their worries and fear about getting the dentistry they need.
When I am not in the office, I spend time taking care of my little brother, and helping my sister with her studies.
I enjoy watching movies, and laughing with friends, and family. One of my hobbies is to mess around with computers, and teach my brother how to play soccer.
Certified Dental Assistant
I was born in Vietnam and moved to Virginia in 2012.
I am currently attending Northern Virginia Community College and plan to continue into the dental Hygiene program. I earned my Dental Assisting Certificate and Radiology Exam from DANB in 2014.
I just recently joined the Sterling Dental Center team, and I’m very glad to be a part of it. I find it fascinating to work with the team to create a friendly environment that can help a fearful patient enjoy their visit at our office. I love hearing patients tell their family how caring and patient our staff is to them!
Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also like to travel, and do community service.
Anela Reilly RDH
I was born in Johnstown Pennsylvania and grew up in Sterling, Virginia. My husband Mike, our children and myself have lived in a couple other states and have always made our way back to Loudoun County.
I have been a dental hygienist since 1995. I was fortunate to be able to stay home with our four boys for 11 years while they were young. Since moving back to Sterling, I have enjoyed coming back to the exciting world of Dentistry. I enjoy motivating and educating my patients with their individual dental needs.
When I am not at work, I love spending time with my husband and four boys. We are involved in our church and love to volunteer at the schools. I spend most of my time at my children’s activities and sports. I am lucky to have most of my extended family here in the area.
