About Your Team
Jitka - Registered Dental Hygienist
I was born in La Paz, Bolivia. I obtained my Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from Universidad Mayor de San Andres in 1998, and I worked as a dentist until I moved to the United States in 2004. In 2010, I obtained my dental hygienist license.
I love taking care of others while offering a stress-free environment. I like educating my patients on how they can better care for their oral health, thus contributing to their overall wellbeing.
In my spare time, I enjoy scrapbooking, card-making, dancing, listening all kinds of music, and - the most important - spending time with my two sons and husband.
Marana - Registered Dental Hygienist
I have been practicing dental hygiene since 2009, and I love what I do! I graduated from the Dental Hygiene Program at Northern Virginia Community College, and I am very passionate about oral health. My patients are like family to me, and I love educating them on the best practices of oral hygiene and maintaining a healthy smile. I’ve been working with Neibauer Dental Care - Dumfries since 2015, and I have developed a trusting relationship with my peers and patients. Outside of work, I love spending time with my family, I love to travel, and I am a big foodie!
Mastora - Registered Dental Hygienist
I am a dedicated dental hygienist with 24 years of experience! I earned my RDH license from Northern Virginia Community College, and I hold a Bachelor of Science degree from O’Hehir University. I pride myself in being a caring and compassionate provider to my patients as I teach the importance of dental care. With expertise in patient interaction and knowledge from my many years of being in dentistry, I am able to create a welcoming environment for all.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and my kitties as well as traveling and gardening.
Laura - Hygiene Assistant
I graduated Dental Assistant Training School (DATS) at the top of my class, and I am currently enrolled at Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) where I am on the Dean’s List with honors, and working toward becoming a dental hygienist.
My hobbies include playing the piano, learning American Sign Language (ASL), and painting. I am the youngest of four children, and I grew up in a military family.
Onan - Dental Assistant
I have been a dental assistant for 12 years. In 2011, I decided to take dental assisting classes at MIHT. In 2012, I was hired at Neibauer Dental Care - Dumfries, and since then I've been in love with what I do! Hearing my patients' stories and seeing them smile on a daily basis is the greatest takeaway for me.
When I'm not at work, I'm at home with my family. I love taking vacations to the beach with my beautiful wife and our 4 beautiful kids. If we're not doing that, my wife and I are either out searching for great food spots or at home "cheffing" it up!
Some of my other interests and hobbies are piercings, tattoos, playing the drums, cooking, relaxing and enjoying life to the fullest.
Jacqueline (Jackie) - Dental Assistant
I am originally from El Salvador. I've been a dental assistant at Neibauer Dental Care Dumfries since June 2021. I attended the Metropolitan Institute Of Health & Technology (MIHT) and received my Dental Assistant certification. I enjoy the variety of procedures we do in general dentistry. It's rewarding to see how happy patients are with the treatment they receive! My goal as a dental assistant is to make my patients feel comfortable; I do my best to ensure our patients have a positive experience and want to come back regularly. I take a personal interest in my patients so we can build trust and establish a relationship. I truly love what I do!
I am also proud to say I am a member of the Army National Guard. I joined the National Guard to continue my education and help the community. When I am not working, I enjoy going to the gym and spending time with my daughter.
The doctors and staff at our office are more like family than colleagues. I promise that you will feel like part of our family when you walk through our doors. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
Sunny - Dental Assistant
I am originally from Nepal! I've been a dental assistant at Neibauer Dental Care Dumfries since 2015 with Dr. Swapna Surendran. I earned my dental assisting certificate in 2014. I am passionate about my work, and I love to work with all kinds of dentistry: direct and indirect restorative, root canals, extractions, implants and Invisalign/traditional braces. I love getting to know each one of my patients personally so that I can give them great quality care.
Outside of work, I like to read inspirational books, visit new places and drink coffee on my leisure time. I enjoy hiking and eating delicious foods with my friends and family. On weekends and holidays, I love to spend time with my lovely family.
Tatyana - Dental Assistant
I have been a dental assistant since 2020. I graduated from ECPI University in Manassas, VA in 2019. It's been a fun journey to learn and grow as an assistant while helping patients with their dental needs!
I'm the second youngest of five siblings. I enjoy being at the beach and spending time with my family. In my free time, I like hiking with my dog Bailey. I also enjoy a good cycling or kickboxing class!
It's a pleasure to work with our patients, and I hope to continue helping others achieve a beautiful and healthy smile.
Christine - Business Assistant
My educational background and experience are in Early Childhood education. I began my career working at a comprehensive child day school, and then I worked for the public schools for over 5 years. Working in the dental field has always been a passion of mine! I am excited to learn everything there is about dentistry and further my career at Neibauer Dental Care - Dumfries!
I have two children, a boy and a girl. I also have two pomskies that keep me super busy as well. I am a huge horror movie buff and love all things dark and spooky. At the same time, we are a big Disney family! Family movie night will either be scary or magical in my household!

Felicity - Business Assistant
I have been in the dental field growing my skillset since 2021! I never knew dental was a passion of mine until I began to work at our Dumfries location. It has been inspiring to see the education behind the work we do here. I am here to help our patients overcome any financial struggles that may come with saying yes to dental treatment with all of the financing options we have available.
Outside of work, I love to travel and I have been blessed enough to be able to visit many states and 3 countries! I am a big foodie and enjoy heading to DC to find new places to eat, so if you have any small business recommendations please let me know!
Andrea - Business Assistant
I look forward to assisting you with your dental insurance questions. Helping our patients receive financial assistance from one of our financial programs is my specialty, so our patients don't have to pay completely out of pocket for all of their dental needs. I've been a Business Assistant since 2019, and I really enjoy working with our patients to help make their visits as smooth as possible!
Amanda - Business Assistant
I was raised in Stafford, VA. My friends and family think it is very ironic that I work at a dental office, given my sub-par track record with dentists as a child!
I live in Woodbridge with my husband. When not at work, I can be found playing video games, reading, cross-stitching, and forgetting to water that one plant that's somehow still alive!
