Monfredi Team Photo

  • Dr Monica
    Dr. Monica grew up in New Philadelphia, a town in northeast Ohio. After earning her degree in Biology from Kent State University, she went on to dental school at The Ohio State University where she graduated cum laude with her D.D.S. degree. In that time, Dr. Monica and her husband fell in love with the city of Columbus and decided to make this their home. Dr. Monica uses a patient-centered approach to focus on restoring and maintaining dental health for patients of all ages. “I am a believer in lifelong learning and constantly strive to provide the highest quality dental care to all of my patients.” She is a member of the American Dental Association, the Ohio Dental Association, and the Columbus Dental Society. Dr. Monica and her husband reside in Hilliard with their beautiful daughter.
  • Ciera
    Our Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH), and the head of our hygiene section, earned both her Bachelor’s degree and her Associate of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene degree from Shawnee State University. Ciera loves getting to know our patients, seeing your smiling faces, and helping to educate you on the tips and tricks that keep your smile in great shape. Ciera’s message to our patients - “Because we know how important patient education is to your oral and overall health, we make sure to keep you updated with the current methods during your office visits.” It’s not unusual to walk by the hygiene area and overhear Ciera’s excitement when a younger patient joins our “Cavity Free Club” or when a patient has returned after making a significant effort to improve their oral health. When she’s not treating patients, Ciera enjoys traveling to new places, eating great food, and spending quality time with her family and boyfriend - Nick.
  • Edith

    Our newest Hygienist is a familiar face at Monfredi Family Dental! Edith had worked with us as a dental assistant prior to entering dental hygiene school at Columbus State Community College, and now that she has graduated with her Dental Hygiene Associate of Applied Science degree, we’ve welcomed Edith back with open arms. Our long-time patients know that Edith has 4-years of previous experience in the dental field and that she is bilingual (Spanish) - which our Spanish speaking patients love. Edith’s message to our patients: “At Monfredi Family Dental we love providing modern-day dentistry as we focus heavily on patient education and prevention. My purpose as a provider is to ensure our patients are aware and informed of their oral health state and the best ways to keep it healthy.”When she’s not in the office, Edith loves enjoying music, comedy, and films!

  • Haley

    Our Chair-Side Dental Assistant is a recent graduate of the Dental Assistant Pro program in Westerville. Haley has the benefit of being up to date on all of the current best practices while also learning from a great team at Monfredi Family Dental. Haley will most likely be the one to help you back to your room and to also assist Dr. Monica during your visit - so if you have an appointment coming up there’s a good chance you’ll meet Haley! Haley’s message to our patients - “I’m excited to greet every patient with a big smile and provide excellent care for our patients alongside Dr. Monica!” When she’s not in the office, Haley loves supporting her 4 younger brothers at their football and basketball games and spending time with her boyfriend - Graham. They love finding fun new activities and places to go!

  • Kelly
    As a graduate of Southwestern Career Academy (in Grove City), who has been working in the dental field since 2010, Kelly really enjoys working with people and helping to better their smiles. She is our rock-star at the front desk so there’s a good chance if you’re calling in, she will be your contact person. But she also is cross-trained to help in the back when the team needs another hand, and she enjoys the occasional variety, as well. Kelly’s message to our patients - “This is a warm, friendly environment and our main focus after the actual dental care is to make sure our patients leave with a great experience.' Kelly and her husband (Alex), have their beautiful (almost 2-year-old) daughter Naiomi, in addition to 2 dogs, 2 cats, and 2 horses! In their free time, they enjoy the outdoors, camping, and taking Naiomi to new places so that she can experience them with the family.
  • Mike
    After earning his Bachelor’s (Molecular/Cellular Biology) and Master’s (Ecology) degrees from Kent State University, our Practice Manager started his post-graduate career working as a scientist in response to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. He has since worked with and managed teams in the fields of environmental emergency response, forensic science, and healthcare. Mike has been privileged to work with people from all over the U.S. and many parts of the world, which is why he loves getting to meet and interact with all of our patients. Mike’s message to our patients - “It’s important to us that you leave our office with both the highest quality care and an experience that has you feeling like a part of our family.” Although he won’t be directly handling your dental care, Mike works to make sure our team has the needed support to best treat our patients and keep the office running smoothly. Mike was introduced to the dental field when Dr. Monica started dental school in 2010, and he has built upon his skills and knowledge since. Outside of the office, Mike, Dr. Monica, and Clara (their daughter) love spending time with friends and family, and exploring Columbus! There isn’t a splash pad or sand volleyball court he’ll shy away from, and if there’s a sporting event going on, he’s interested.
  • Rachel
    Our Expanded Function Dental Assistant (EFDA) graduated from Sinclair Community College and has been working in the dental field for almost a decade. Rachel is our true Jill-of-all-trades, as she has experience from the reception area (welcoming patients, talking with insurance companies, etc.) right back to great hands-on patient care. Whether you’re scheduling an appointment, getting X-rays taken, or are in need of a filling, there’s a good chance you’ll meet Rachel during your next visit. Rachel’s message to our patients - “I’m excited to be part of a practice that truly cares about what’s best for the patient.” Rachel and her husband (Ronnie) have two amazing daughters (Kyndell and Peyton), and they all love anything to do with the outdoors! This attitude carries over to the office in Rachel’s willingness to help with a wide variety of needs for all of our patients. It's just one of the many things we love about her and it’s why she is such an asset for you as a patient.
