Meet the Team

Diana: Office Manager

One of the first faces you’re likely to encounter when you come into the office is that of Diana.  She really is the behind the scenes director that ensures that your visit exceeds your expectations in terms of quality and comfort.  She is also our problem-solver extraordinaire so if you have any concerns, please let Diana know and she will do her best to take care of it right away!

Diana has extensive background in insurance billing and benefits, having previously worked at a local optometrist’s office coordinating benefits.

Diana is a Fort Lauderdale local, living in Tarpon River.  She received her Bachelor’s Degree from Florida International University and her Master’s Degree from Barry University in Miami.  When she is off the clock, she loves to enjoy the South Florida sun and sand, as well as taking care of her many many plants!

Ana: Dental Assistant

Ana has grown to become Dr. Petruk’s left hand woman, quite literally!  They met many years prior to the opening of Tarpon River Dental, and developed such a good working relationship, that it only seemed natural to continue to grow together.  Ana is the master of keeping the doctor running on time and on schedule, ensuring your valuable time is not wasted in a waiting room.

Ana has been a dental assistant for years, with her favorite thing to assist in being oral surgery and extractions.

In her off time, Ana is most likely found cruising out on the water with fiance’, Greg, and their dogs.  They are members of the American Powerboats Association and race Class 5.  The pig mostly stays home because it’s a little to big for the boat.
