Elizabeth Fernandes- Business Staff
I’m Liz Fernandes. I have worked in the dental field for 15 years. For more than half of that time, eight years, I’ve had the privilege of being part of Dr. Landress’ amazing dental practice filled with great staff and truly wonderful patients. I truly love what I do because I have learned so much from Dr. Landress and our other team members, as well as from our patients. I live in Wappingers Falls, NY, and am married to my husband of 21 years. We have a beautiful teenage daughter. I look forward to achieving more in the office and getting to see each of our patients improve their smile and dental health.

Merita Markaj- Certified Dental Assistant
Hello, my name is Merita Markaj. Working with Dr. Landress is an absolute pleasure and highly educational as well. Dr. Landress is such a kind and generous person. I have worked in the dental field for about five years as a certified dental assistant and I could not choose a better field. I honestly feel that dental treatment is like art and when I am done with each patient my artwork causes happiness and vibrates amazing smiles. I am from Kosovo and came to the United States six years ago. As you can imagine it was quite a change especially after building my family with my husband Nick and having two beautiful kids. I spend most of my time on family activities. I am really happy to work with such amazing patients because I can see that our staff pleases them with the work we do.
