Robert D. Knox | Practice Manager

I am Dr. Kathy Knox’s husband and Dr. Alexander Knox’s father. Dr. Kathy and I met in high school in 1974 and were married in 1981. I graduated from RPI, in Troy, NY where I studied chemistry and materials engineering. I had my own business, before working at Otego Family Dental, providing information technology support to small businesses in the capital region.

We live next door to the Otego practice and we have two children, both grown and married. I love working with my wife and the great team at Otego Family Dental.

I graduated from Oneonta High School in 2008 and then served 5 years in the US Marine Corps Infantry. I learned many valuable skills, traits, and lessons during my service as a Marine and they have translated well into my civilian career.

I started my employment at Otego Family Dental in late February 2014 and consider myself lucky to be part of such a close knit team. I look forward to contributing to a successful future here.

Oneonta Office

Cindy Matheson – Front Office Manager
I have been employed with Otego Family Dental now for over 4 years in the Oneonta Office. I gave up the seagulls and moved to the wildlife in Unadilla 7 1/2 years ago and I absolutely love it.

I was a stay at home mom and raised three children in Long Island. I have three grandsons, one granddaughter who I spend as much time with as I can. I currently have one dog and two cats, which all are rescues. I come from a background of banking and management with over 20 years of experience.

I enjoy many things in life such as traveling, entertaining, hearty laughs, good food and of course, wine. I especially love working with people. I have the gift of gab which makes my job easy

I grew up in Otego and graduated from Unatego in 2013. I attended SUNY Broome after where I earned my degree in Dental Hygiene. After beginning my career in 2016 at another office, I joined Otego Family Dental in January 2022.

I have loved joining this team and getting to know all the great patients. When I’m not at work, I love spending my time with my family and exploring the outdoors during every season.

Kayla Fiorello Registered Dental Hygienist

I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Communication studies from SUNY Oneonta in 2016. I decided to go back to school in 2019 for my Associates in Dental Hygiene at SUNY Broome.

I started my career off at Otego Family Dental just a couple of months after graduating Hygiene school in 2021 and I could not have joined a better office to grow with. I enjoy working with all of our patients, and I feel lucky to be a part of a team that is like family.

Outside of the office I enjoy spending time with my family on our dairy farm and watching my son grow and explore new things.
