Streetsboro Team - Signature Smiles Dental

Meet the
Streetsboro Team

Michelle M.

Operations Leader

Hi, my name is Michelle and I started my journey in the dental industry in 2006. After years of experience in clinical, administrative and management roles, I found there was still something missing in my day-to-day. I was craving a better working environment and a bigger purpose. Dr. Omar Salameh invited me to Signature Smiles in Streetsboro, before the drywall was even up. Our professional paths had crossed before, and I was thrilled he thought I was the one for the job. As he walked me through a dust-covered construction site, he described to me in great detail his mission to change lives by providing more for his patients, and how he saw me fitting into that. Working alongside the Salameh family (Omar, Issa, and Seim), has further fueled my desire to grow both personally and professionally. I can genuinely say we have become more than colleagues, we’ve become lifelong friends. My husband Joshua and I, married in 2007. We enjoy date nights, yoga and playing volleyball—although I am not very good! We adore our two growing children, Corbin and Ellie. As a family, we like camping, hiking, game nights and football. We took our first family trip to Disney in 2018, and we are hooked! We are eagerly planning our next family adventure. I grew up in Streetsboro, and called it home for many years. And although I currently reside in Stow, I still feel very connected to the community. It’s amazing to see the growth of the city over the last 30+ years.

Deana J.

Treatment Coordinator

Hi, my name is Deana and I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. In 2011, I earned my Business Management Degree at Lakeland Community College. I am the mother to an eight-year-old fast growing little boy. He is the light of my life. We spend most of our time going to the movies or watching basketball. I joined the Signature Smiles family in early October 2018 as the Treatment Coordinator. I’ve been in the dental field for the last past seven years. In that time I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Yacoub for 6 years prior to joining this team. Thanks to Dr. Yacoub I was given the opportunity to work at an office where I am able to fulfill my passion of helping people on a daily basis. I have the opportunity to help make dental treatment affordable for our patients with payment plans suitable to their lifestyle. Not only am I able to help our patients with finances, but I am also a part of changing their lives.

Alyssa M.

Patient Relations Coordinator/Marketing Assistant

Hi, my name is Alyssa and I live in Streetsboro with my husband, James and our toy poodle, Kip! I am a Streetsboro native and grew up here. I graduated in 2013 from the Cleveland Institute of Art with degrees in Graphic Design and Illustration. All of the ads, mailers, and print materials for our office are designed by me! I enjoy partaking in anything creative and design related – I love doing yoga and I am also an avid reader. I have been part of the team at Signature Smiles since 2016 and have loved being able to witness and contribute to the incredible growth of our practice. One of my greatest joys is being a part of giving our patients the greatest experience possible, right from the very moment they contact our office!

Marcie M.

Hi, my name is Marcie! I joined the Signature Smiles family as a Patient Relations Coordinator in October of 2017, but I have been a patient since 2015. I am a lifelong Streetsboro resident, graduated from Streetsboro High School, and earned my Bachelor of Science from Kent State University.  When presented with the opportunity to join the Signature Smiles team in September of 2017, I quickly jumped at the chance! I have been married for 21 years and have two children—our daughter, Sydney, and son, Jake. I also have three fur babies—an 10-year-old dog named Gracie, and two cats, Joey and Jeffrey.  I enjoy reading a good biography or suspense novel, binge watching Netflix, and crafting! I love being a part of a fantastic team and “work family.” We are all here for the same goal—changing people’s lives!

Michelle T.

Patient Relations Coordinator

Hi, my name is Michelle. I was born and raised in Rhode Island where I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Healthcare Administration. My family originates from the Dominican Republic, which is located in the Caribbean, and is surrounded by breathtaking ocean views. I am happily married to my wonderful husband Radu. I consider my Russian Blue cat, Noah, to be an important part of our family. My passions include traveling to different destinations and tasting new delicacies. I joined Signature Smiles because I believed that it was a practice that truly cares about their patients and employees. I wanted to work in an environment that was a home away from home and focused on teamwork and collaboration to be successful. I believe that my positive energy and hard-working attitude will allow patients to see the happiness we receive from changing their lives.

Carla D.

Office Manager

Hi, my name is Carla, and I’m the office leader. I have been in dentistry for over 30 years! I got my start as a dental assistant, but much of my career has been as an office manager, which I’ve been doing for about 25 years! The biggest reason why I’ve been in dentistry for 30 years is simple: It’s about the people. I really love working with patients. That’s where my passion for the job comes from. It’s inspiring to see them come in unhappy with their smile only to leave ecstatic about their teeth. In my free time, I love to craft, and I’m a quilter! I also love to read, shop, and travel.

Stacey E.

Dental Assistant

Hi, my name is Stacey and I’m originally from Baltimore, Maryland. Go Ravens! In my spare time, I enjoy going camping and hiking with my family. What I love about Signature Smiles is the people I work with. The office is my second home and I hope to make everyone feel as comfortable and happy as I am being here.

Wendi D.

Dental Hygienist

Hi, I’m Wendi and I attended the University of Pittsburgh and have been a dental hygienist all over the country! I moved from southern California and am so happy to call the Cleveland/Akron area my forever home. When I’m not working to keep your smile healthy and bright, I enjoy spending time with my two sons, working out and traveling to a beach whenever I have the opportunity! I am honored to be a part of the Signature Smiles team where we can work together and change lives. My passion for total body health has catapulted my desire for helping my patients’ achieve their personal goals.

Therese B.

Dental Hygienist

Hi, my name is Therese and I am a registered dental hygienist here at Signature Smiles. I was born and raised in Streetsboro. It is awesome to be doing what I love in my hometown. My boyfriend George has two amazing children, Jayleigh and Jordan. I absolutely adore them. We also have a dog, two cats, and a bearded dragon. Traveling is one of my biggest passions. I love to snorkel and have done so in both Mexico and Jamaica. You can often find me outdoors or with my dog at the dog park, as I find nature to be so relaxing. I joined Signature Smiles because from the moment I walked in, I knew they were significantly different from any other dental office. I feel blessed to work alongside such an amazing “work family.” Having a good sense of humor and being positive is a big part of my life and I believe it is contagious. I enjoy building long-lasting relationships with my patients and strive to provide them with a great dental experience.

Tiffany C.

Dental Hygienist

Hi, my name is Tiffany and I’m a Registered Dental Hygienist originally from the White Mountains of New Hampshire. I Graduated in 2013 from NHTI Concord New Hampshire’s Dental Hygiene Program. I have been a Dental Hygienist for 6 years with experience in everything from Periodontics to Orthodontics. I worked for years in a multispecialty practice prior to moving to Ohio. My hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, and walking my dog Mack. I love to travel and visit my family in New Hampshire and enjoy the great outdoors and breathtaking views of the White Mountains. I joined Signature Smiles Family Dentistry in April of 2016. This was my first dental practice here in Ohio and I hope it will be my forever home. I joined Signature Smiles because I felt that my passion for excellent and thorough patient care was also shared with Dr. Omar Salameh. We immediately “clicked” and I knew from that point forward we would change patient lives for the better, together. I feel I can add to the patient experience by listening to patient issues intently and without judgement. I also provide a very thorough examination of the teeth and gums to provide the patient with the highest level of care, all while being gentle and understanding. I look forward to seeing all of you at our office.

L'Tanya B.

Filling Specialist/EFDA

Hi, my name is L’Tanya. I reside in Twinsburg, Ohio. I am a devoted mother of 4 children and a dog who are all a huge part of my life. I value spending time with my family, shopping, going to dinner, games, and vacations. I also enjoy engaging in creative activities, painting and spending quiet time alone to regenerate my mind. I joined Signature Smiles because their attributes and core values are very similar to the way I enjoy caring for my patients on a daily basis and the way I constantly drive myself. I graduated from Stark State University in 2016 and am a certified EFDA. In making this huge career decision, my oldest daughter asked me if I wanted to continue to be average or if I wanted to be great. Naturally my response was, “I want to be great!” She stated, “Well, you have your answer, accept the position.” I believe my personality and determination to help change people’s lives adds to Signature Smiles most dedicated team. We look forward to meeting you soon.
