Office Manager & Clinical Supervisor
My role here at Smile Concepts Orthodontics involves the overall supervision of the clinic and maintaining the office inventory. Basically, I tend to the little details that make the practice run smoothly so Dr. Alex can focus all her energy on providing outstanding care to our patients. She truly cares about making sure each person’s experience at our office is exceptional, and that all the smiles created are as beautiful as possible.
I am a fun loving mommy of two wonderful children, one son who serves our country in the Navy, and one daughter who is in high school. My husband and I are longtime Tampa Bay Buccaneer’s fans. If we are not watching football, we are outside playing with our boxer, Tyson, watching movies, or just going for a drive.
Business Relations Manager & Clinical Dental Assistant
Hola, my name is Suagei Gomez and I am a single parent of two great kids. I was born in the Republic of Panama and speak both English and Spanish. I attended San Antonio College for Dental assisting and I am a certified orthodontic dental assistant. I have been in the orthodontic field for 12 yrs and love what I do. I love to see the transformation patients make at the end of their treatment, it gives me great satisfaction that I was a part of that change. In this field I have met many great doctors and mentors along the way, including Dr. Alexander. I love growth and learning new things every day. My hobbies include collecting movies and listening to REAL old music.
My name is Elizabeth Zaragoza and I began working at Smile Concepts Orthodontics in 2017. I am no stranger to the area, as I grew up here. I am a medical administrative specialist that recently graduated from Orange Technical College. Although I am new to this job, I am eager to learn and grow everyday as much as I can. You can find me around the office helping schedule appointments and discussing financial estimates with prospective patients and parents. My favorite part of my job is helping patients, and showing them that a beautiful smile doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg.
I love working with Dr. Alexander and the staff they are amazing. I know if I have a question and I can go to them and get an answer. Also, if we are doing something in the office we always tend to work as a team. They’ve taught me how important that is, even patients have realized that.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and my fiancé, joking around or just looking at the beauty of nature. Being with my loved ones is one of the most important things for me.
