Bio Coming Soon!
My name is Lisa DeCaprio and I began my career in the dental world at age 16. I graduated dental assisting school from Cuyahoga Valley Career Center my senior year of high school. I have been working for Dr. Saleh and Dr. Salem in November, 2006. After earning my CDA, I furthered my studies at Case Western Reserve University, School of Dental Medicine. I graduated from the EFDA program in 2010. I absolutely love what I do, and the people I work with have become my second family.
Other than work, I spend my time with my husband and two beautiful daughters. We enjoy going to festivals, day trips, going out with friends, and just being together. Life has had its ups and downs, but maintaining a positive outlook and working hard has gotten me to where I am today!
I've been working in the dental field since completing the Dental Assisting program at Tri-C in 2012 and I recently completed the Expanded Functions Dental Auxiliary(EFDA) program at Case Western Reserve University. Here at Brecksville Dental Excellence we're like a big family and we like to treat our patients as if they're also a part of this family. I take pride in my patient care and it makes me so happy when a patient tells me how much I've eased their dental anxieties.
Born, raised and still residing in Parma I own way too many Cleveland supporting T-shirts. I LOVE CLEVELAND. Fall is my favorite season and not just for the Pumpkin Spice Lattes. I take Halloween very seriously with my many DIY indoor and outdoor decorations. I enjoy spending time with my family, including my three dogs and two cats.
Kylie Kwiatkowski – R.D.H. (Registered Dental Hygienist)
My name is Kylie Kwiatkowski and I am a dental hygienist at Brecksville Dental Excellence. I graduated from Cuyahoga Community College with an Associate Degree of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene. I chose a career in the dental field because I love helping and caring for people. I have a passion for dental hygiene and working with patients to educate them on their oral health.
I am very fortunate to work with such a highly educated and friendly staff here at Brecksville Dental Excellence. We all work very well together to provide the best dental experience for our patients. In my free time, I enjoy playing sand volleyball and spending time with family and friends.
My Name is Lindsay Hovan and I am a practicing Dental Hygienist at Brecksville Dental Excellence & Summit Dentistry. Knowing the dental field is where I wanted to be, I started out as an Assistant in 2011. The love I have for dentistry led me to further my career so I continued to complete the dental hygiene program at Cuyahoga Community College. I put 100 percent of my time into school and graduated top of my class in 2015. My main priority is to do my absolute best to help patients and educate them on the importance of oral health. I am also truly thankful to be working every day for an amazing doctor and a great team who has the same passion as I do. When I am not at the office I enjoy spending time with my family, trying new and exciting things, and staying active.
I can't imagine working for anybody other than Dr. Saleh and the current staff. I've been with Brecksville Dental Excellence since 2006 with eleven years and counting I wouldn't have it any other way. I always knew that I wanted to work in the dental field so I took the dental assisting program in high school. I finished the Expanded Functions Dental Auxiliary (EFDA) program at Case Western Reserve University in 2008 and that certification allows me to place the majority of the fillings at the office.
My time not at the office is spent running and hiking or with my friends and family. Although I love Ohio I try to escape as much as possible to somewhere with sand and salt water. Love traveling but I know where home is!
My interests in dental started at a very young age. After high school I went to Polaris in 2007 I graduated from dental assisting school. I've been working with Dr. Saleh since 2008 and I love my job. Outside of the office I love to go hiking canoeing kayaking with my husband and our daughters.
