Amy

New Patient Coordinator

When you call our office, I will have the privilege of greeting you and will make sure you are scheduled appropriately to meet your needs. I really enjoy meeting and getting to know new people every day.

My job is to listen to you, and to introduce you into our dental practice with confidence, knowing that you will receive excellent dental care. I have been in the dental field for 22 years, and have been with Kuzma Advanced Dentistry since 2006.

It is a blessing to work with such an amazing team of dental professionals. Wilmington is my hometown and I love it here. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my amazing husband, and wonderful family and friends.

Julie

Patient and Insurance Coordinator

I have worked with patients for over twenty- three years, mostly chairside and now at the front desk. I help with check-in/out, make patient appointments, and handle all the insurance situations. It is such a joy to work alongside such a great team that goes above and beyond to provide the best possible dental care for the Wilmington area. I am glad to be one of the first smiles you see when you come to our office!

I have a Biology degree from UNC- Wilmington and a degree in Religious Education from Jacksonville Baptist Theological Seminary. When I am not singing, gardening, or doing DIY projects for my home, my handsome author husband (The River Hideaway by Billy Beasley) and I are chasing after our Australian Cattle Dog, Teke.

Tera

Dental Assistant

My husband and I were born and raised here in Wilmington and we never plan to leave; It’s our home and we love it! We have two beautiful daughters who keep us on our toes and we enjoy every minute of it.

I have been a part of Dr. Kuzma’s team for over 11 years now and I can honestly say that I love my job! Being a part of changing patients’ lives one smile at a time is an honor. Giving patients that have had bad experiences new positive memories is extremely rewarding. Dentistry has changed so much in the 20 years I’ve been assisting, so it’s important to me to be a part of a team that continually learns new ways of caring for our patients. Every patients needs are different and because of Dr. Kuzma’s diverse training, he is able to help them, all while glorifying God.

Mary

Dental Hygienist

I woke up one day in fifth grade and knew that I wanted to be in the dental field! After spending a few years at UNCW concentrating on Psychology I transferred to Cape Fear Community College to concentrate on dentistry. I later graduated with my Associates in Dental Hygiene and Applied Sciences. Since then I have continued to expand my knowledge through various continuing education courses and want to continue to learn as much as I can about dentistry.

I know I am blessed when I wake up in the morning and am excited to do what I do! When I am not making smiles brighter, my husband and I are running around after our toddler, Nico, which keeps us plenty busy! In the little spare time that I have, I love to watch college basketball, professional football, and relax on the beach with my friends.

Mandy

Dental Assistant

I have proudly been in the dental field for a little over five years and have loved every second of it! I have always wanted to work in a field where I have the ability to help people and dentistry fulfills that. My passion for the last three years has been treating Neuromuscular/TMD patients, and I am so blessed to work in a practice that treats those issues.

My husband and I moved to Hampstead in February 2017 from Pennsylvania and have not looked back. We live with our two Puggles Ernie and Bella and are currently expecting our first child in May 2018. We love to fish and to be outside and can enjoy those hobbies more since moving to this beautiful area.

Stacy

Dental Assistant

I moved to North Carolina two years ago with my fiancé, Justin. I am originally from Bristol, Rhode Island. I love the beach life and relaxing with our three bull dogs (Butch Cassidy, Carolina, and Ladybug). My son, who just retired from the Army after 4 years, just recently moved to Wilmington and I could not be more thrilled to have him around more often!

I have been in the dental field for over twenty five years and I couldn’t imagine my life any other way. I take pride in the fact that I have been trained in so many advanced aspects of dentistry, but have specialized in cosmetics. Everyone feels better with a great big smile!

Melissa

Dental Hygienist

I was born and raised in Columbus County, but have called Wilmington home since 1998. As a graduate from the dental hygiene program at CFCC, I have been helping people achieve optimal dental health since 2010. I truly enjoy what I do, and feel very blessed to be a part of this amazing team at Kuzma Advanced Dentistry.

I am married with one very energetic, amazing little boy. In my free time, I enjoy visiting our family and going to the beach. We are active in our church, at our son’s school and can often be found at his t-ball games!

Sonya

Dental Hygienist

I have been a dental hygienist for 28 years. I love giving patients brighter smiles! Being a North Carolina native, I enjoy spending time at the beach boating, paddle boarding and kayaking. Spending time with family and friends is a very important part of my life.

Marissa

Patient Coordinator

I have recently moved to Wilmington with my husband to put down roots. I enjoy cooking, going to the beach, and spending time with friends, family and my dog, Luke. My husband and I are expecting our first child in October, and we could not be surrounded by more supportive friends and colleagues. I am beyond blessed to have found such a kind and talented team to join! I have been in the dental field for over eight years; I enjoy working closely with patients, confidently assisting Kuzma Advanced Dentistry in providing overall dental healthcare.
