Fe Toyco, Dental Assistant
Fe loves working with each patient and getting to know them individually and really enjoys helping patients who are undergoing full-mouth reconstruction in particular. She loves seeing the changes that happen as Dr. Freyne develops and gives patients the smile that they have dreamed. Fe is excited to witness their happiness when they’ve finished treatment and can smile with confidence. Fe's workday is very patient-focused, and it begins with welcoming patients as they arrive to ensure that they are comfortable, relaxed, and happy during their treatment. She take dental X-rays and impressions, prepares bleach trays, and assists Dr. Freyne chairside during procedures.
Fe was born in the Philippines and is now living in Silver Spring, MD, where she is happily married to her loving and caring husband Raymond. They are active members in the Catholic Church and teach religious education on Sundays during the school year. Once or twice a year, they take a road trip to New England to visit Raymond’s mother and other relatives.
