Stephanie Pacifico

Facial Cosmetic Surgical Assistant

I was a chairside dental assistant for 10 years. During that time, I assisted a General Practitioner, an Endodontist, and a Prosthodontist before joining the practice of Dr. Anthony Farole in the summer of 2013. I come to work not only for my livelihood but also because I take pride in my commitment to our patients. I derive a great deal of satisfaction helping improve the health and lives of our patients in many ways. I recognize some patients have anxiety and or fears about receiving treatment. I do my best to be compassionate and understanding. This helps our patients a great deal in relieving some of their fears. My career as a dental assistant has allowed for a smooth transition into treating patients requiring surgery on their teeth, jaws, and face. There was and is overlap in the training and experience to both the fields of dentistry and surgery of the mouth and face.  I treat patients the way that I would like to be treated or how I would like my son to be treated.  This has allowed me to serve our patients in the most efficient and compassionate way. Safety is always our biggest concern as is excellence in care. My feelings and professionalism are shared with my co-workers and certainly, Dr. Farole has set the standard for excellence in patient care. We are a caring team.

Yaniris Gonzalez Rizo

Facial Cosmetic Surgical Assistant

I’m Dr. Yaniris Gonzalez Rizo, but everyone calls me Yani. I’m a foreign dentist who arrived in the United States looking for freedom and a better future for my family and I. I graduated in my home country, Cuba, as a dentist from the University of Havana School of Dental Medicine in 2013. I arrived in the US in June 2015, since then, I have been working as a dental assistant. I lived in Florida for three years. During that time I was working in an endodontic office ( Gables RCT)  and helping another office as a surgical assistant. I have the immeasurable pleasure of working at Dr. Farole Cosmetic Facial Surgery Center as a cosmetic/surgical assistant, and I’m improving my knowledge and I learn something new every day. I truly enjoy every single time at this office. Moreover, I recently got my acceptance at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine at the International Student Progam. As a result, I have to say goodbye soon to this outstanding practice. Dentistry is my passion. However, I have the privilege of having a family of two children a husband, and a dog that I love more than anything in my life.

Amber Donchez

Facial Cosmetic Surgical Assistant

Hi, I’m Amber.  I am a Certified Surgical Assistant.  I have been in the field of oral and facial surgery for over 15 years, primarily specializing in Facial and Maxillofacial Surgery.  I absolutely LOVE what I do!  Patient care is of the utmost importance to me. I’m inspired to see the cosmetic transformations of Dr. Farole’s patients.  The detail in his work is Impeccable.   I trust his abilities. Just today I had Bellafill done by him to reduce a forehead scar I acquired after an auto accident. The result was beautiful. I have also wanted lip enhancement for a long time but I did not trust I would be getting the result I wanted. After working with Dr. Farole and seeing his results, I had it don’t today and my lips are beautiful. I bring the skills I have acquired and my passion and empathy to Dr. Farole’s Practice and I know he appreciates my work ethic and talents. Working with Dr. Farole has been a true blessing!  When I am not working, I am spending time with my family, my long-term boyfriend, and our two fur babies.  I love the outdoors and I am a dedicated advocate for the preservation and protection of Elephants. 

Dr. Ken Nam

Co-Director and Chief of Hair Transplant and Surgical Staff

The Only Thing I Do is Hair! I received my Hair Transplant Surgical training from The International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) doctors in Philadelphia. After the completion of the program, I was personally selected by Dr. Farole for my training experience and surgical ability to produce the correct outcome for our patients.  I enjoy my new position as a Co-Director and Chief of Hair Transplant Surgical Staff. My team performs an average of 3 to 4 hair restoration procedures every week and has placed over 500,000 grafts since beginning in hair restoration. I am fortunate to be a part of an amazing practice. I enjoy golfing, hiking, and traveling.

I thoroughly enjoy my new position as a Patient Coordinator with  Dr. Farole and love working with my team.  Our staff is warm and friendly and always comfort our patients.  Dr. Farole truly cares about his patients and is an excellent surgeon and top in his field.  I am fortunate to work for an amazing practice.

Dina Costa

Office Financial Manager

I have a Bachelors’s degree in Accounting from Temple University. Prior to joining the staff with Dr. Farole, I worked for CIGNA Insurance Company for 12 years as an Accounting Supervisor. My experience and expertise in the Insurance industry have made my transition from the Corporate to the Private sector very efficient and applicable.

There are numerous reasons why I love coming to work each and every day. The biggest reward is when I know I’ve made a difference in someone’s life. One of the joys of working with Dr. Farole is knowing that he loves and excels in his profession. He has great compassion and understanding of his patients. That passion is contagious and reflected in our friendly office environment.
