Carmen was born in Romania. She graduated from high school in 1991 in Romania and worked as an elementary school teacher. She then came to the United States, and in 2003 she began working with Dr. Horblitt. She attended Valley Medical School in Trumbull to become a dental assistant, graduating in 2005. In 2007, she passed the required dental assistant exams and became a certified dental assistant. She is also certified in CPR.
As a dental assistant, Carmen’s goal is to be understanding and compassionate. She strives to help our patients and their families during treatment in our office, and she feels that the entire team is devoted to making sure the patients achieve their individual dental health goals. Working with Dr. Horblitt and everyone on his team is very gratifying for Carmen.
Mirela was born in 1968, and while her parents tried to shield her from the harsh realities of life in Romania, she dreamed of coming to America. After high school, she studied clothes alteration and design at technical school. She married her husband Dumitru, and in December of 1987 she had her first son, George. In 1989, Dumitru left to begin building a better life for them all in America, and less than a month later she had their second son, Mihai. In 1991, shortly after Romania won independence from a communist dictatorship, she brought herself and her two toddlers to meet up with her husband in America. When asked why she did it, she said, “Nothing matters to me more than my family.”
From the moment she got to America, she worked hard, spending her days as a seamstress at the Burlington Coat Factory and her nights attending English classes, becoming fluent in English. When she became fluent, her job opportunities widened, and she went to work for Vitramon in the quality control department. Having been a helpful person her entire life, she grew tired of factory work and looked for something that would let her make a difference. That’s why she went to school to become a certified dental assistant. She started classes in 1996, and since 1997 she’s been a full-time dental assistant for Dr. Horblitt. Together, they have helped countless patients obtain the care they needed, always ensuring that they received the best service possible. Nothing makes her happier then knowing that over the years, she’s been able to help our patients regain their smiles.
I grew up in Stratford, Ct. and went right from high school to dental assisting for a general dentist. I learned several different aspects of dentistry, oral surgery, periodontal, pediatrics and orthodontics. Curiosity and the desire to have the ability to provide direct patient care lead me to further my dental education at Fones School of Dental Hygiene. I completed the program and graduated as a Hygienist with Cum Laude Honors.
I help patients avoid decay, dental disease and help arrange any dental care they may need. I most enjoy keeping their smiles bright and white! In my spare time I enjoy traveling, spending time with my family and helping others. In 2017, I went on my first mission to Haiti. I will be going on my third and fourth mission trip this year. I assisted in building a church, school and now a health center. It is my privilege to treat patients and help people.
Crystal, who joined the office in 2017, plays an integral role in our front end operations. Crystal grew up in Norwalk CT and after graduating high school, enrolled in the dental assisting school at Porter & Chester. Once she graduated in 2011, she began working for a general dentist where she got the opportunity to work more hands-on and gain the ability to be cross-trained in front-end responsibilities. Crystal is the mother of three beautiful girls who mean the world to her. In her free time, Crystal enjoys spending time with her fiancé and her girls on family outings, living life while enjoying each others’ company
