Meet Our Team

The team at Alan M. Levine, DDS

Nancy Garnitz

I graduated from Montgomery College's Dental Assisting Curriculum in 1969 and have been working full-time since then in the dental field. In the 1970's and 80's I was very active in the Maryland Dental Assistant Association, serving as president and chairperson of the legislative committee. I also served on committees involving the Maryland Dental Association and was a board member for the Montgomery College Dental Assisting Program. I worked for approximately 18 years for a Pedodontist, both as a certified dental assistant and office manager.

For the past 21 years I have worked for Dr. Levine at his front desk, where I plan on staying until retirement. I have one son, Aaron, who is 29 years old, a significant other, Rick, and 4 dogs.

I love the beach and I am an avid Redskin fan. After living in Montgomery County for over 50 years I moved to Frederick five years ago. A long commute ---- but worth it!!!

Robin Weller Melnick, RDH, B.S

I am a 1979 graduate of Thomas Jefferson University School of Dental Hygiene. My first employment was in Washington, D.C. in a periodontal practice in 1980. I have worked with Dr. Alan Levine since 1992. My primary focus is on treating my patients' periodontal condition in as comfortable an environment as possible. I especially enjoy educating my clients on how to successfully maintain their oral health. My voice can be heard throughout the office, as I love learning about my patients, many of whom are like family to me after many years of treatment!

I have two grown sons who are employed by the Washington Nationals baseball organization. When I am not in the office, I love spending time with my family, friends and my three rescue dogs, Romeo, Prince and Boris.
