Meet The Staff


(just a little camera shy, for now!)

Shellie is one of the first faces you will see and meet at our practice. As your “go to” person at Stone Ridge Oral & Facial Surgery, Shellie has over 10 years experience working on patients’ behalf in negotiating with insurance companies and processing claims efficiently and accurately. A South Riding local, Shellie loves spending time with her family and her beloved dog, Rigo.


An avid chef who loves spending time at Hilton Head Island, Lori brings a wealth of knowledge to Stone Ridge Oral & Facial Surgery. Lori and her husband, Scott, recently relocated to the area from Indiana where Lori spent over 15 years in dental administration. Lori’s goal is to streamline the entire administrative process from scheduling to handling insurance claims. She truly strives to provide that “personal touch” that so many of our patients are accustomed to receiving at Stone Ridge Oral & Facial Surgery. When not in the office, Lori loves taking drives through Middleburg in her “new” ’73 Corvette convertible!



Rahel is Dr. Armanious’ Lead Surgical Assistant. She has been in the dental field for 14 years. Rahel focuses on changing a patient’s stress and fears on arrival to laughter by the end of the procedure! She loves her job because of the gratification of knowing that she makes a difference every day in the lives of our patients. Her extensive knowledge of dentistry and surgical procedures is an invaluable asset to the practice.  

Rahel was born in Ethiopia and moved to Northern Virginia in 1996. When not shopping at the mall, she loves spending time with her husband and 3 exceptional daughters.
