Office Manager/On-site IT Tech
Hi, I’m Viva! I’m the Office Manager here, and I have been with the office in some capacity or another since 1999. I grew up in Manchester, so it’s great to still be connected to the town. Patients can come to me for anything -- from appointments they need to insurance questions. I always want our patients to be as informed as possible about their visits here. My daily objective is to provide everyone with exceptional customer service, and to have every patient leave the office with a smile (a clean smile!) on their face. In my spare time, I love spending time with my family, baking, and laughing!
Hi, my name is Chhoti, and I am the Dental Assistant here! I graduated from Porter and Chester Institute with a degree in Dental Assisting in 2021. Besides English, I am fluent in Nepali and Hindi. During my free time, I love to hike and to spend time with my cat, Mylo! I am currently attending Goodwin University to become a dental hygienist.
Hi, my name is Kasia. I graduated from Tunxis Community College in 2002 with a degree in Dental Hygiene, and I have been working for Dr. Carta ever since. In 2006, I received my certification to administer local anesthesia. I am CPR-certified. Besides English, I speak fluently in Polish and can communicate in Russian as well. If you want a whiter smile, I am the 'Zoom-Whitening Technician' here in the office. I enjoy seeing the great results that patients get after their whitening. In my spare time, I enjoy going to the gym, the outdoors, reading, and spending time with my family and friends.
Hi, My name is Amy. I began my career in 1997, working full time as a Dental Assistant while achieving my CDA certification. After eight years, I decided to further my dental knowledge and began the steps required towards becoming a dental hygienist. I graduated from Tunxis Community College with a Dental Hygiene Degree in 2005. I received my local anesthesia administration certification in 2006 at the University of New Haven. I also have a degree in Medical Office Administration with a certificate in Medical Coding. I joined Dr. Carta’s team November 2005, and continue my commitment to expertise in dental hygiene treatment and excellence in outstanding patient care. It gives me a great satisfaction to make patients feel at ease and comfortable during their treatments. I feel laughter is always the key to a great dental appointment. If you don’t laugh once, I haven’t done my job. I volunteer at the Special Olympics every year since 2003. While I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and my dog Dexter.
Hi I’m Becca! I’ve been one of the Dental Hygienist’s here at the office since 2020. I graduated from Tunxis Community College with my degree in Dental Hygiene in 2019. I also graduated from Charter Oak with a Bachelor Degree in Health Care Administration in 2020. My favorite part of the job is to educate patients on taking better care of their dental health to preserve as many beautiful smiles as possible. When I’m not working, I love spending time with my son, Xander , hiking, playing music and baking. I also love tending to my many houseplants!
Hi, My name is Mariah! I’ve been working here for two and a half years as a Patient Coordinator. I love talking to new people and assisting them with their needs. I was born and raised in Manchester and graduated from Manchester High School. I am now in college pursuing a career in Psychology. Outside of work, I enjoy spending quality time with family, friends and my animals. One of my favorite hobbies is photography - I love creating scenes and taking pictures. My goal at work (and outside of work) is to help anyone in need of anything!
Hi, my name is Donna. I graduated from Seymour High School and then continued my education at Stone’s School of Business. I went on to become a legal secretary in downtown Los Angeles for 10 years before moving back to CT. I am CPR certified and have taken continuing education courses to help both myself and the patients we serve. At work, I enjoy joking with and calming down any of our nervous patients. I greet people with a smile and get to know them as people - not just as one of our patients. They appreciate not being “just a number” when they come through our door. When not working, I enjoy anything to do with animals and nature. I’ve been doing volunteer animal rescue for over 25 years, which I find very rewarding. I cherish the time I have with my own animals. I also look forward to family reunions every year, as my family is spread out in different states.
Hi, my name is Isyss. I have been a part of Dr. Carta’s team since 2021. I am currently attending the University of Connecticut in Hartford to further my education to achieve my goals for the future. I love to help our patients and make them comfortable in any way that I can. In my free time (outside of school), I love spending time having fun with friends and family.
