Front Office Manager

I am Guadalupe del Carmen Mayorga de Boden, but you can call me Carmen! Yo soy una Mexicana and my long name is a Mexican tradition. Carmen is in charge of making sure things run well for everyone in Dr. Boden’s practice, especially for you as our patient.  


Her first degree is Doctora en Odontologia (D.D.S.) de la Universidad Veracruzana in Veracruz, Mexico, her home city.  She took a big adventure in 1981 and trained in English at Rice University in Houston, Texas.  She was then able to attend a residency at the University of Michigan to gain a Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Endodontics.  It was hard work in a second language in a foreign land, but she did it! 


Her plan was to return to her native Veracruz, but she met another resident at the University---she and David married in 1985.  They raised and educated two beautiful children who are also bilingual and love the mixture of American and Latin culture.  She loves her husband, her children, and her new country, but she will always be a proud Mexican!

Dental Assistant

Fern has been with Dr. Boden for over 13 years. Her original home state was New Jersey.  She spent more than 30 years as a practicing dental hygienist there.

After moving to Florida, she became a volunteer at the dental clinic of Volunteers in Medicine in Stuart.  It was there that she met Dr. Boden who was also doing volunteer work.  She was impressed by his professionalism, work ethic and his true caring for the patients.
It was only natural that when she was in need of a periodontist, she chose to go to his office.  After being a patient, she was happy to be given an opportunity to become a member of his dental family.

She enjoys sharing her dental knowledge and experiences with Dr. Boden’s patients and hopes to continue for many years to come.
