Meet Our Staff


Yeremi Canizales, MS, DDS

Hello and thank you for exploring our website. My name is Dr Yeremi Canizales. Originally born in Caracas, Venezuela my family and I immigrated to the United States in the fall of 1987. As a boy, my family instilled the importance of education, perseverance, integrity, respect and loyalty among others. Fast forward thirty years and these same values continue to guide my actions and help serve my patients in meaningful and wholistic ways. I enjoy distance running. I find great pleasure in reading the classics, watching films that touch you in ways that leave you a little changed and listening to music that wisps you away. However, above all, my family and my profession are the aspects of my life I love.

Amanda McPherson, DDS, MS

I am so excited about being a part of the team at Severn River Dental Health Center.  I feel so amazingly blessed to have found a profession that I love and that I can share that passion with my staff and my patients.  I really believe that along with Dr. Yeremi (my hubby) and our awesome staff we are changing the way that people experience dentistry.  Whether I am just keeping my patients healthy or helping them create a new comfortable smile, it is truly a privilege to serve this community and all of the wonderful people of Severna Park and the surrounding area.  I have been practicing here for 5 years now, but I am originally from the Northern Panhandle of West Virginia.  I met my husband Yeremi during my first year of college and spent many years visiting Maryland. I always new it was where I wanted to settle down, work and raise my family.  When I am not providing my favorite treatments such as Custom Dentures or Oral Appliances for Sleep Apnea, I am home enjoying and spending quality time with my beautiful children- Genevieve and Graynger.

Cindy Nungester, RDH

My name is Cindy Nungester and I am a Dental Hygenist here at Severn River Dental Health Center. I graduated from dental hygiene school at Rhodes State College in 2003.  After doing a lot of searching for that perfect office that believes in good ethics and dentistry above all else, I joined the team here in Jan. 2016. I love my job and my patients . Infact, the best part about being a dental hygenist are my patients. I love meeting new people, teaching them new ways to improve their dental and overall health. I also love catching up with our established patients. Before going to college, I was in the U.S. Air Force but now I have switched sides as I am a proud Army Wife (Go Army!)  and a mother to 4 of the most amazing children. We are orginially from Ohio, but call home wherever the Army sends us. I enjoy running, traveling and spending time with my family and pets. 



I have been on the team at Severn River Dental Health Center since Jan. 2014 but I've been in the dental field for almost 15 years. I am probably the only Maryland native who has never picked a crab! When I'm not working I am coaching volleyball, cooking with my husband or hanging out with our 4 kids.
