Marvelyn – Registered Dental Hygienist
Marvelyn joined our team in early 2017, although she has over 7 years of dental experience. She graduated from the College of Southern Nevada in 2016, where she was the president of the Student Dental Hygiene Association (SADHA). During her schooling, Marvelyn was also the recipient of the Colgate STAR Award (Student Total Achievement Recognition). Marvelyn loves being a part of our practice and providing the best possible care for our patients. She helps them achieve a healthy, happy smile by helping them have a good foundation of oral health. Marvelyn also loves the great team that she works with, which stems from having a great boss, Dr. Michele S Tratos, who sincerely cares for her team and patients.
Marvelyn is married, and she and her husband just had a new baby girl in August 2016. They are both very excited! In her spare time, Marvelyn enjoys working out, hiking, doing community service, helping others, and having fun with her family and friends.
Jessica – Registered Dental Hygienist
Jessica graduated from ECC in Buffalo, NY, and she joined our team in early 2017, but she has been involved in various aspects of the dental profession for over 18 years. Jessica realized early on that her passion for dentistry would be best served by focusing on periodontal therapies. Shortly after graduating from college, Jessica was given the opportunity to join a periodontal team, which provided her with the ability to treat more challenging dental disease with extensive periodontal therapies. Every day, Jessica strives to deliver the exceptional quality of care that is inherent to Dr. Tratos’ office, and she looks forward to meeting you and helping you maintain your healthy smile!
Outside of dentistry, Jessica loves many things, including animals, yoga, dancing, music, experimenting in the kitchen, and studying nutrition and full-body health.

Reneé has been a part of our practice since October 2006. She loves being able to see our patients who are brought in as children grow and mature, and then to see their own children brought into the office. To Reneé, one of the best things about her job is being able to keep seeing our wonderful patients. Reneé enjoys being able to help our patients receive the complete treatment they need and leave our office with a positive experience.
