Chief Operating Officer
Brittany is responsible for the daily operations of all of our Wellspring practices. This driven, dependable, genuine, and considerate leader keeps both her team and her patients happy with her wit and warmth. A graduate of Ball State University in Indiana, Brittany’s 13 years of dental experience make her an invaluable problem solver. She relishes the time she spends interacting with her team and in clinical work, as well as HR, and overseeing patient flow in our Wellspring locations. When she isn’t at work enjoying the daily challenges of leadership and boosting the Wellspring Company culture, she spends her time running and biking the cozy neighborhoods of Carroll Gardens, cooking, traveling, and spoiling her niece.
Who doesn’t have a question about their insurance or their bill once in a while? We get it. That’s why our dedicated financial coordinator, Iraida, is such an important fixture in our dental office. With a dental assistant certification from The New York School for Medical & Dental Assistants, and an AS in Business Administration/Healthcare Management, Iraida is the patient advocate of your dreams. Her most exciting moment is when she makes an insurance appeal on a patient’s behalf – and it gets approved! When she isn’t helping our smile family make the most of their dental budget, this Brooklyn native enjoys arts and crafts and going on walks with her son through the friendly and engaging neighborhoods of Carroll Gardens.
Meet Rachel, a patient coordinator here at Wellspring Dental. With four years of experience as a dental hygienist, Rachel is passionate about patient care and ensuring that each person who visits the office feels comfortable and at ease. At Wellspring Dental, Rachel plays an integral role in helping patients feel at home and ensuring that their experience is a positive one. Her dedication to patient care and her warm, welcoming personality makes her an essential member of the team. In addition to her work in dentistry, Rachel is an artist in her free time. When she’s not working or creating, she can often be found napping in the sun or enjoying a good book.
A New York College of Dentistry graduate, Janelle can’t spend enough time with her patients. Seeing someone’s confidence increase with the improvement of their smile and health keeps Janelle motivated and happy to enter our beautiful office every day. “We are located in a residential neighborhood, which, I think, makes coming to appointments feel more like time with friends than an obligation.” Every smile counts, and Janelle wants to ensure that each patient leaves feeling refreshed and brightened, has been educated in proper home smile care, and has a new perspective on the importance of smile care for their overall health and happiness. When she is not cleaning smiles, or parenting her son, Eli, Janelle stays active with running and often takes family runs with her husband and son.
Adina, originally from Pittsburgh, PA, and a graduate of The University of Pittsburgh, brings a warm and friendly personality to our dental office. Adina is dedicated to helping patients maintain healthy teeth and gums. One of Adina’s greatest passions is helping patients feel calm and comfortable in the dental chair. She understands that many patients feel anxious about visiting the dentist and takes the time to explain each step of the treatment process and answer any questions they may have. In her free time, Adina loves to read and learn new things. She is also a big sports fan. Whether it’s watching a game or playing one herself, she enjoys the thrill and excitement that sports bring. Adina’s gentle touch and caring nature have earned her the trust and respect of our patients. With her friendly demeanor and commitment to exceptional care, Adina is dedicated to helping our patients achieve and maintain healthy smiles for years to come.
Joanna is a native New Yorker with a B.A. in sociology from The University of Arizona and graduated magna cum laude from the New York City College of Technology’s dental hygiene program.
Joanna has a passion for all things dental hygiene. She enjoys interacting and forming bonds with her patients, striving to make everyone feel comfortable and cared for while having a fun time doing so. Joanna is so grateful to be a part of the Wellspring team and is proud of the care she and the team consistently deliver.
Outside of Wellspring, Joanna loves listening to music, going to concerts, reading, and spending time with her fiancee and their mini poodle puppy, Grover, as well as her friends and family.
Dental Assistant/Lab Tech
What Shani loves the most about her job is being surrounded by smiles – and by people who are genuinely devoted to those smiles and keeping them healthy and strong for life. Despite her years of experience assisting our dentists and working as a lab tech, Shani is still amazed and happy when patients find themselves so comfortable and relaxed in her care that they fall asleep during procedures. That comfort and sense of well-being have so inspired Shani, that she has recently gone back to school to become a full-fledged dental hygienist! When she isn’t crafting custom splints and trays in the lab or making sure all needed items are within our doctor’s reach, Shani spends time creating new recipes and traveling.
