Meet the Team

Molly

Office Manager

 

I have been a member of the Vargas Orthodontics team since 2003. As our office manager, I am here to ensure the office runs efficiently and patients are given the very best care possible. I am also cross-trained to work in our smile-design area as a certified orthodontic assistant with more than eight years of experience. I enjoy becoming friends with our wonderful patients and hearing about their lives. Watching our friends go through their smile journey and develop beautiful smiles makes every day rewarding and fun! I feel very lucky to work with Dr. Vargas and our amazing team! At our office, I am part of a family that shares the passion and motivation to not only straighten smiles but have an impact on lives. 

I am happily married to Ryan and we have two beautiful children, Ethan and Addison. We also have two crazy and playful cats, Lola and Jade. I enjoy spending my leisure time with family and friends, and going to the beach.

 

Barbara

Treatment/PR Coordinator

 

I have more than 30 years of experience in dentistry and orthodontics, and have been making people smile at Vargas Orthodontics since 2002. As the treatment coordinator, I greet new patients and introduce them to our practice. Following their consultation, I review the proposed treatment plan and available care options that Dr. Vargas has recommended. Then I answer everyone’s questions, so patients and parents can make an educated decision about their new smile. I also participate and plan office promotions to current and prospective patients as well as referring doctors and in our community.

I love talking with patients and families about the benefits of orthodontic care. Not only does treatment create a beautiful smile, but it improves a person’s dental health and self-confidence!  The best part is the conversations with our patients and their families. Everyone has new adventures to tell us about, and I love hearing all about it. It’s wonderful to work with Dr. Vargas because he always strives to provide the best care for every patient as if they were his own family. Being a part of Vargas Orthodontics makes me smile, and I am proud to be a part of this great team!

I am married to Richard and have five children and eight grandchildren. We also have two rambunctious dogs, Roxy and Chanel, and two cats, Nobuddy and Whiskey—it’s like having kids again! In my spare time, I sing in a rock and roll blues band and I’m involved in musical theater. I love fashion and looking different each and every day! Shopping is so much fun! Our patients always peek in my office to see my ever-changing style. My motto is to have fun each and every day—we are in charge of our happiness. I love to make people smile!

 

Katie

Scheduling/Financial Coordinator

 

I am the first person you see when you walk into the office. There is always something different to do, from greeting our patients, scheduling appointments and working on financial matters. I also assist our patients and parents to understanding their financial options and payment plans that work with their budgets, and prepare all paperwork for our new patients starting treatment. I love getting to know our patients—learning more about their lives and seeing the amazing smiles that our team creates. I feel truly blessed to work with such an incredible team of co-workers and friends. Dr. Vargas shows his team the positive changes in our patients’ lives and is always reaching to achieve higher goals. 

I am happily married to my husband and best friend, David. We have one adorable dog named Pepito. In our spare time we love going to Disney and spending time with our friends and family. 

 

Melissa

Patient Manager

 

I have recently moved to the area from Virginia, where I worked as an orthodontic technician for 4 years.  I am thrilled to be a part of the Vargas Orthodontics team!  I love to see my team members so eager to help each other and take the utmost care of our patients.  It is wonderful to work with Dr. Vargas because he has such a passion for what he does.  He is alwasy learning and teaching us so that we can grow as a team and expand our knowledge of orthodontics.  I love working  with people, especially children.  It is so rewarding to have an impact on people's lives, whether it's simply asking them about their day, or helping to improve their self esteem with a confident, beautiful smile that they get to keep for the rest of their lives.  In my free time I love to cook, go to the beach, read books, and spend time with friends.

 

Lea

Patient Manager

 

I joined the Vargas team in 2014 as a patient manager. I’ve worked in orthodontics as an assistant/lab tech for seven years. I enjoy making our patients feel comfortable and helping to improve their self-esteem by developing confident smiles. I love how our team makes everyone feel at home. I enjoy working with Dr. Vargas; he’s open-minded to new ideas, funny, and always wants the best for his staff and patients.

I moved to Jupiter from New York. I’m married to my wife Nancy and have a son, along with a dog and a crazy kitten. On my down time, I love being with family, fixing cars, doing puzzles, and playing video games with my son.
