Meet our Support Staff


Rochelle, Registered Dental Assistant


Kristy, Registered Dental Assistant

A long time assistant to our specialist, Dr. Abdo, Kristy can answer any dental question you throw her way.  Hailing from Connecticut, her parents relocated to Jupiter when Kristy was very young.  She attended Jupiter High School where she was part of the high school band supporting the Jupiter Warriors.

Upon meeting Kristy, you will quickly discover that in addition to being a dynamo at explaining complex dental procedures, she is the mushiest member of our staff.  She is a hugger!!  Kristy truly knows how to make you feel at home, even in THE CHAIR.

When she is not in scrubs, Kristy is usually at home attending to her fur babies, Cheech and Lily and her new husband, Marc.  Her vacations soon will consist of spending time with her new European family, discovering all sorts of wonderful wine and foods.  She bikes 20 miles at a time and drives us all insane with envy of her dazzling, perfect, but also warm and genuine smile.


Shawn, Insurance Coordinator

We dare you to find a warmer soul that knows more about insurance than Shawn.  A life long resident of the Jupiter area, Shawn has built a lengthy career in dentistry as an insurance coordinator.  We only get her for a few days a week, but she has helped not only the practice, but so many of our patients in maximizing their insurance benefits.  Deciding between a few policies?  Call Shawn!

Shawn likes to keep busy, so if she is not working one of three jobs, she is volunteering her time for her second family, the KVJ Radio Show.  She has also been known to spend countless hours tending to her Sephora addiction.  Don’t be surprised if you run into her when you are out on the town.  Shawn can often be found out and about discussing dentistry with anyone looking to improve his or her smile.
