Yadira M.

Yadira has spent 23 years educating parents on the importance of dental care. As a mother of two, it was essential for her to find an office and doctors that would be able to help with her children’s needs. When Yadira first started dentistry, Dr. Rodef taught her how to check a patient in, master insurance protocols, and offer excellent customer service to all patients. She shares Dr. Rodef’s passion and ensures patient care is her top priority every day. Yadira has been with CDFZ for 19 years and her goal is to make patients feel comfortable and provide them with the best customer experience possible.

Yadira enjoys spending quality time with her family, participating in church activities, and volunteering. Her hobbies include walking, reading, and dancing. Her favorite Disney movie is “Cinderella.”

Jodi D.

Jodi graduated from Union Institute and University with her bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice Management with an emphasis in Homeland Security and earned her Associate of Applied Science/Diploma in Dental Assisting from Concorde College. She has been working in the dental industry for 20 years but is a new addition to the CDFZ team.

Jodi believes that teaching children good habits at a young age is paramount for overall health, maturity, and character development. She enjoys the team atmosphere and endless opportunities for growth at CDFZ and takes a relatable approach when treating children and consulting with parents. Jodi believes that ultimately, everyone wants the same thing – what is best for their loved ones. She does her best to provide that to her patients on a daily basis.

Jodi always puts her family first, but her husband and daughters are jokingly convinced that she loves the family’s five dogs the most. She enjoys hiking and being outside with her family and their dogs in her free time and is such a tremendous fan of the Marvel Universe that she couldn’t choose a single favorite!
