She has many duties but is primarily responsible for scheduling and outlining treatment plans, discussing payment options, as well as following up with the care of our patients.

With over thirty years of experience, Marie is an expert in giving patients the most up to date care possible.

Diantha, born in Connecticut, spent most of her life outside of New Tampa in Tarpon Springs.
She graduated from Pasco Hernando State College in 1998 after spending many years working as an Orthodontic assistant and managing the front desk for a local dental office. This is where she found her passion for hygiene and has spent the last 21 years providing care to each person she meets.
Diantha has been with Dr. Ferrera since 2011 and truly strives to make people with previous negative feelings of dentistry more comfortable and happier.
She dedicates time each year to volunteer for many organizations to give back to the community and we are lucky to have her on our team! She enjoys the outdoors, staying active, and spending time with her grandchildren.
