Meet Our Team

Our patients can feel the comfort and positive attitude mainly because of the people that work here. I have been fortunate enough to have a wonderfrul staff from the beginning and we work very well together. 

Michele
Dental Hygienist

As a registered dental hygienist for over 20 years, Michele brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to our practice. Michele is an expert at what she does and is truly dedicated to her patients.

She takes her time to explain things and makes sure that every patient's questions and concerns about their dental treatment are addressed. In addition to being efficient, she is also a very conscientious worker.

She is friendly and makes every patient relaxed and comfortable. With her broad knowledge as a dental hygienist, she performs thorough and quality work that exceeds Dr. Shabany's and the patients' expectations.

Michele is a mother of 2 girls and a boy. She is involved in her kids' school and sport activities. She likes outdoor activities such as biking and camping. While not at work, she likes decorating and baking pies. Most of all, Michele is a loving and caring mother.

We are very fortunate to have Michele as part of our team. She is integral to the success of the office and the overall health of our patients.

Gina
Dental Assistant

We consider Gina Dr. Shabany's right hand person. She has 21 years of experience at making a dentist's work possible while keeping her patients comfortable.

Gina has successfully completed the training required to be an expanded function dental assistant. She is certified to perform a wider array of duties and she is a natural when it comes to soothing the nervous, distracting the little ones, and predicting Dr. Shabany's every move. She also keeps everyone up to date on the latest American Idol gossip... big fan!

Gina is a very devoted wife and mother. She is active in her church as well as the St. Louis Filipino community. She has two daughters that are as beautiful as they are intelligent.

Her oldest is on course to become a doctor and is currently attending medical school at UMKC. Her younger daughter is in high school.

Gina brings a mothering element to our office. She makes sure we are all eating properly and not wasting food. She also councils all of our younger patients on the importance of education and follows up at every appointment to help keep them on the right track. She remembers each child in the practice as well as their parents.

We are all very fortunate to have Gina as part of our team at Dorsett Village Dental Care. Patients and staff alike benefit from her nurturing and caring personality.
