Meet the Team
Woodbridge VA Dentist
We recognize that each of our patients is unique and deserves to receive dental care that reflects his or her individual needs. The Woodbridge Dental Care team is experienced and committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit.
Heather Bacon, DA
Heather joined our team at Woodbridge Dental Care in 2010 with over 25 years of experience in the dental field and was our financial coordinator and “insurance guru” until July 2021. She always brings a bright spirit and smile that immediately makes you feel welcome and at ease. Heather has gloved up permanently, and works chairside with Dr. Creamer as his dental assistant. She lives in Midland with her husband, four daughters, five dogs, two cats, and chickens. While not at work, she volunteers at her children’s schools and shuffles her kids to swim, band, and soccer practice.
Elizabeth Maltere, DA
Elizabeth was a longtime patient here at Woodbridge Dental Care, and has now been welcomed onto our clinical team as of March 2023! She graduated from Northern Virginia Community College in 2021, and is taking additional courses to further her education. Her outstanding focus on providing excellent care and her genuine love of interacting with our patients are just part of what makes her such a great part of our staff. When she is outside the office, Elizabeth resides in Dumfries with her fiancé and her son, and enjoys baking.
Brooke Francisco, RDH
Brooke started with us in 2021, and immediately fit right into our little family! She completed her dental assisting training and certification in high school, and with a degree in dental hygiene from NVCC and over 20 years of experience in pediatric, orthodontic, geriatric and sedative dentistry, she is constantly continuing her education in dental treatment to ensure the most up-to-date and comfortable care for all of our patients. Brooke and her husband live in Manassas with their three children, three dogs, four cats, and a turtle. In her time off, she enjoys hiking, fostering dogs, and savoring a delicious piece of chocolate.
Karen Richey, RDH
Karen joined us in September 2021. In high school, she discovered her love of dentistry while working as a dental assistant on weekends. She graduated from the University of Pittsburgh, and has worked in Virginia for the last 15 years. Each winter, she attends the Old Dominion Dental Hygiene CE Conference to stay up-to-date on optimal dental care. She enjoys the personal aspects of dental hygiene as much as the technical side- connecting with her patients and making them feel at ease is her favorite part of her job! Karen and her husband Craig have lived all over the country while he served in the Navy for 21 years, and permanently reside in Lake Ridge with their three wonderful children and Jack Russell Terrier. Outside of the office, Karen enjoys teaching yoga, gardening, and travel.
Megan McCardell, Patient Care Coordinator
Megan became part of our family in 2017, and quickly adapted in the dental world. She is typically the first member of our team you’ll talk to when you call, and as our care coordinator and “scheduling queen”, manages the continuing hygiene, restorative, and orthodontic care for our patients. During her time with us, she has continued to expand her health care and marketing knowledge with seminars and online courses, and is preparing to start her education as a dental assistant. Outside the practice, Megan enjoys painting, expanding her personal library, and travelling.
