Debbie Martinez, Dental Hygienist
For 34 years, Debbie has been in the dental field…she almost can’t believe it herself! Debbie is a Tampa, FL native and truly enjoys her career. When she began thinking about her career path, Debbie first started out wanting to pursue a career in elementary education. However, she adored going to her dentist and orthodontist and thought it would be a great way to care for others. Plus she “loves smiles”. Debbie focuses on goals to improve and maintain oral health and help Weninger Dentistry’s patients as much as she can!
Debbie loves the staff at Weninger Dentistry and the variety of dental options available to patients. We’re happy she chose the dental path!
Amada Longoria, Dental Hygienist
For almost 40 years, Amada has been delivering happy smiles to the patients that she serves. Born in Cuba, Amada was most inspired by her father’s periodontist that would let her watch his cleanings when she was a young teen. Amada is thrilled that she is a vital member of a community that focuses on the health needs of each individual. She likes to be part of Weninger Dentistry because of our integrity, professionalism and desire to help our patients. We can’t help but blush & we would say the same thing about Amada.
When Amada isn’t being her motivated, caring hygienist self, you can find her seeking peace, tranquility, love and new places to travel.

Amanda loves being a hygienist because it gives her a sense of purpose to bond with and educate patients on their oral health to optimize their overall well being. When Amanda isn’t helping people, she is very active, loves spending time with loved ones & taking care of her pets.

Linda, a native of Boston, Massachusetts stumbled into her passion by accident. For over 20 years, Linda has been helping patients gain a brighter smile and even greater confidence by being a dental assistant. Linda first started out in dentistry scheduling appointments. It wasn’t until her previous dental employer noted how quick of a learner she was and steered her towards her true passion of assisting. Linda is a team player who enjoys the family-friendly atmosphere that Weninger Dentistry proudly supports.
When Linda isn’t thinking about dental health, she’s dreaming of her goal of one day teaching! Linda, we support you in your endeavors and we’re glad to have you on the team.

She keeps accounts up to date and truly enjoys working with patients.
