We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.

Ms. Veronica Duque

Dental Assistant 



My name is Veronica. I was born and raised in Venezuela. I moved to Maryland in 2015 because love brought me here. What a great reason, isn’t it? After graduating as a dentist and finishing my Master's degree in my country, for many years I was shared my time between as a general practitioner and the role of Scientific Medical Liaison for 3M Oral Care Venezuela.

I’ve been working as a Dental Assistant with Dr. Sagafi for more than a year, and it has been a great experience! Every day I get to meet awesome people and work with a superb team.

During my free time, I love to do baking experiments (that do not always end well!). I read as much as I can (watch soap operas too, but don’t tell my husband!), and I am passionate about my volunteer work with foundations and NGO’s in my native country dedicated to feeding and educating children.

Ms. Angela Wright

Front Desk Specialist


Hello, I am Angela the front desk specialist at Bethesda Orthodontics. I am a local Washingtonian, born and raised in Washington D.C. I have worked for Bethesda Orthodontics for over two years and have enjoyed bringing over 13 years of experience as a billing/ insurance claim specialist to the team. I love working at Bethesda Orthodontics at our friendly and caring environment with Dr. Sagafi. She tells me that I have contagious laughter and that I am great at solving mysteries. I learn something new every day working on our team. I greatly enjoy the opportunity to meet our amazing patients, their families and partake in their orthodontic journey being a smooth one as I watch their smiles transform beautifully. My personal passions include bowling, reading and spending time with my kids, family and friends.
