Armando Pogo

Dental Assistant

Hi, I am Armando Pogo, one of the dental assistants at My Dentist For Life.

I was born in Boynton Beach, FL and raised in Ecuador, where I earned my dental degree in 2008. Four years later I moved back to the United States, I really enjoy being part of this office where the goal is to give all patients an amazing experience as soon they walk through the doors of our practice.

Lisandra Montes De Oca

Dental Assistant

Hello, my name is Lisandra. I am a Dental Assistant at My Dentist For Life.

I was born in Cuba, where I studied to become a dentist. In 2015, I came to the United States and continued my education at Howard College in the State of Maryland. In 2018, I relocated to Florida with my husband and his family.

My husband and I just received the best gift this year with the arrival of our little princess. I am so grateful to share this experience with my supportive team here at My Dentist For Life.

Giselle Fermin

Dental Hygienist

I am Giselle Fermin! I am the registered dental hygienist here at My Dentist For Life, I was born in New York and raised in the Dominican Republic, where I earned my dental degree in 2006. Two years later, I got married and moved back to the United States and went back to school for dental hygiene. I really love being part of this office, where our top priority is our patients. I enjoy being a dental hygienist; my #1 goal is to educate my patients on their oral health.

While away from the office, I enjoy spending quality time with my family, friends, my husband and my two sons, teaching them the importance of having God as our deliverer.

I love to keep myself healthy and go to the gym and work out daily and eat very healthy. As a matter of fact, I meal prep for the entire week, not only for myself but for my husband and my two sons. Besides all that, I own a small business of natural hair products: GRACE BY G.

We created them because we wanted the option of treating the hair with products free of chemicals, sulfate, and paraben, giving it the nutrients it needs to grow beautiful, healthy and strong. You can read more about us at our website, Gracebyg.com, and follow us on Instagram under the name of Gracebyg1.

Raquel Rodriguez

Front Desk Coordinator

Hello, I am Raquel; I am the front desk coordinator here at My Dentist For Life. I was born in Puerto Rico and relocated at the age of 3, to Brooklyn, NY with my parents & 4 siblings. I am the youngest of 5. I raised 3 children of my own.

When I took my kids to their first dental appointment, you can imagine how anxious I was because I didn't know how they react. To my surprise, they were treated so kindly, by the doctor and his assistant, that they were laughing and at ease the entire time.

I was so amazed at how friendly they were, that I ended up becoming part of their staff. And that is where my love for dentistry was born.
