Meet The Staff


Practice Manager

I has been with Saxon Dental since we opened in 2006.  My 17+ years in dentistry has made me very profienct with dental insurance and other aspect of being a practice manager.  They call me the go-to person for all your insurance questions.  I will make you feel like part of the Saxon family. Over the years I has built some great relationships with our patients.

I have lived in Orange City for over 36 years where I graduated from Deland High in 1992.  I have two beautiful girls.  My oldest graduated from University High in 2012 and  my youngest daughter will graduate from University High in 2017.  I love spending time with my kids, boyfriend and his children.  On my free time I enjoy fishing, camping, line dancing and going on adventures.

I love working at Saxon Dental. I have know Dr. Patel since 1999 and to this day love being part of his team.  It is a pleasure to work with all my teammates, who I consider my second family.

Dental Assistant

Morgan graduated from Unverisity High School in 2014 and later that year joined the Saxon Dental family.  Throughout her time working as a sterilization tech she found herself wanting to get more involved with patients and procedures.  She found dental assisting was very interesting and was wanting more knowledge. Morgan began takin courses to help her begin her process to become a certified dental assistant.

Outside of work Morgan loves to be outdoors.  During her high school years she became interested in the 4H and FFA (Future Farmers of America).  She showed livestock at the Volusia County Fair.  However, Morgan loves to spend time with loved ones doing activities like fishing and going to softball games.

Kimberly Ortiz

Dental Assistant

My name is Kimberly Ortiz, and I am excited to have joined Saxon Dental this year (3/2017). I've been a dental assistant for over 6 years.  My favorite thing about  being a dental assistant is working with the doctor to give patients the most beautiful healthy smile line.

I am originally from West Palm Beach Florida and moved to Deltona  one year ago.  I am a mother to one handsome boy who loves basketball.  Most of our time is spent outdoors.  Outside of dental assisting I am an athlete at crossfit in Lake Mary.  I love competing in challenges daily to reach my personal goals. They say " If you love what you do, you'll never have to work a day in your life" :)
