OUR STAFF
Dr. Finkelman
Please allow me to introduce myself to you and your family. I am originally from Mexico City, Mexico. I specialize in family and pediatric dentistry, having received my Doctorate of Dentistry at Emory University, a Post Graduate degree from the University of Maryland and specialized training in Pediatric Dentistry from Johns Hopkins University. In addition to my degrees, I was an Associate Professor of Pediatric Dentistry at Emory University and taught at Louisiana State University. I established my practice in 1986 and decided to open as a family practice. I have been at the same location since I first opened; therefore the surrounding community knows me and my staff. I am always exited to see my long time patients as well as the new patients that are becoming part of our community. In my free time, I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family.

Mary Rodriguez
Dental Assistant
Hello my name is Mary. I have been working with Dr. Finkelman since 1996. I attended college in Monterrey, Mexico. My favorite part of working at Dr. Finkeman’s office is having the opportunity to assist in different procedures throughout the day. Since we are a family and pediatric office we see a variety of patients, giving me the opportunity to get to know an array of people. In my free time I spend time with my nieces and nephews. I hope that with my experience I can make you feel welcome in our office. Hope to see you and your family soon.


Karina Castillo
Office Manager
Hello, my name is Karina; I grew up in Dalton, GA. I moved to Atlanta several years ago and came to work for Dr. Finkelman. When I lived in Dalton I worked at a pediatrics office. I have always desired to work in the healthcare industry. I knew from very early in life that I wanted to work where I could help people. Working in a family practice gives me a sense of fulfillment and joy. My husband and I have 2 children that keep us on our toes. Giovannie who is 9, is a boy scout at East Clayton Elementary. My little one, Karina attends pre-school and has ballet practice two nights a week. Being a family oriented person only motivates me more to give our patients the adequate information they may need. I look forward to helping you with any questions or concerns you may have, and to make your experience here a pleasant one.


Lizbeth Quintana
Administrative Assistant/Insurance Coordinator
Hello my name is Lizbeth. I grew up in the small town of Rome, GA. I moved to Atlanta in 2006 after graduating high school. I much prefer living in the city. Before I joined Dr. Finkelman’s office in 2008, I was attending the International School of Skin and Nail Care, to become an aesthetician. However, I had a change of heart on what career I was going to choose. Working in the dental field gives me wonderful pleasure, knowing that our office provides an important service to both children and adults. Our office is a small one but that only makes it better, since it gives a warm sense of family, and our patients always get to see a familiar face. So remember I am here to help you with any questions you may have regarding our office or your insurance. And so, I welcome you with a friendly smile.
