Front Desk Coordinator & Dental Assistant
Melissa Recio has been a part of the team at Central Park Dental for three years. You will find her working hard at the front desk, but she is a trained Dental Assistant as well. On the weekends, she works as an Ortho Assistant, too. It is no surprise Dr. Jung calls Melissa her “go-to person”!
Born and raised in Texas, Melissa graduated in 2017 with her Dental Assistant license from Concorde Career Institute in Grand Prairie. She has always been determined to work in a healthcare profession. She chose the dental field because for her, the first thing she notices about someone is their smile. She loves to see patients “regain their confidence” after an appointment. Her favorite part about her job is getting to interact with patients. “ I love to help patients get the smile they always have wanted as well as make others feel good about themselves. I am very patient oriented and love to hear positive feedback of they’re experience with us. So I always try my best to treat all patients like family and give them the best care”.
Melissa’s favorite part about her job is being able to help in both the front and back of the office. In her free time, she loves to spend time with her husband and five-year-old son, Emmanuel.
