Dr. Kelly Vaughn | Dentist in Woodstock, GA
1st Choice Dental Care

My career affords me the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people and learn about their unique qualities. Learning to appreciate each person as an individual has not only made going to work every day a beautiful experience for the past ten years, it has also allowed me to build a very strong support team to make my practice the best it can possibly be. It is very satisfying when you can help others by boosting their confidence and improving their quality of life.


I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Cell Biology from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, then I went on to achieve my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Tennessee in Memphis.

I also keep up to date on the latest research and methods in my field through my membership with the International Team of Implantology study group. I also remain up to date with many other continuing education classes, ensuring that my patients receive the most comprehensive and advanced dental care.

My Team

I feel privileged to work with such an excellent group of dental care professionals. Dr. Mcree, Dr. Orza, and Dr. Fransoso are very skilled with both the technical aspects of dentistry and the equally important elements of personal interaction in maintaining a respected practice. Our staff is also an impressive collection of dedicated individuals and it's great to work with them every day.

Leisure Time

I enjoy relaxing at home with my family and sitting down with a good book. I'm also a big fan of baseball and I look forward to the days I get to spend at the field! I stay active with my recreational basketball league, brushing up on the skills I honed back in my days as a high school point guard.

All our professionals at 1st Choice Dental Care maintain the highest levels of accreditation and pursue ongoing education to stay abreast of the latest trends in dentistry.

Dr. Stephanie Fransoso | Dentist in Kennesaw, GA
1st Choice Dental Care

Stephanie Fransoso was born in Portland, Maine but spent the majority of her years in Evans, Georgia. Upon high school graduation, she attended Auburn University in Alabama and majored in Biomedical Sciences: Pre-Dental. While at Auburn, she played collegiate soccer with the Tigers. After college, she spent a year becoming familiar with the dental field, working at Augusta Oral and Facial Surgery for Dr. Faircloth and shadowing various dentists. She attended dental school at Medical College of Georgia, School of Dentistry, where she pursued her lifelong goal of becoming a dentist. Toward her latter years in dental school she desired additional education and training in her field. She applied to multiple AEGD/GPR residencies and ultimately chose a one-year AEGD program at the VA hospital in Birmingham, Alabama. Upon completion of the AEGD program she joined a practice in Birmingham, but ultimately wanted to move closer to home to pursue a new and exciting opportunity with 1st Choice Dental Care. Stephanie looks forward to joining the team to serve and provide exceptional dental care to her patients.


Dr. Emil Orza, Dentist in Kennesaw

Dr. Emil Orza | Dentist in Kennesaw
1st Choice Dental Care

Many of my patients come to me believing they have lost their smiles to dental problems. It's a delight to give the smiles back to these members of my community and put them on the path to maintaining those smiles for the rest of their lives.


I attended Georgia State University for my undergraduate studies, then I received my Doctor of Medical Dentistry at the New York University College of Dentistry.

I am a proud member of the Seattle Study Club, attending monthly meetings with some of the most gifted professionals in my field to discuss the latest research, learn the most modern practices, and consult with one another on some of the most interesting, complex cases. Combined with other continuing education courses, this allows my colleagues and me to provide dental care that far exceeds the average.

My Philosophy

I believe in practicing pain-free dentistry and in keeping my patients informed about every aspect of their care process. This means providing top-quality anesthesia, maintaining a comfortable office, and being available to answer any questions my patients may have.

Leisure Time

I am very close with my parents who live close by in Sugar Hill. My wife and I have two very cute, very spoiled cats! I also like to stay active and seek out adventures. I participate in the production team at Passion City Church, I love to play volleyball, I give high-performance driving instruction at Road Atlanta, and I swing dance with my wife.

Dr. John Hann grew up in the greater Atlanta area and stayed in Georgia for his schooling. After high school, he headed to Athens and graduated from the University of Georgia Honors College with a double major in Biology and Psychology. He then moved straight to Augusta to pursue his Doctor of Dental Medicine from the Dental College of Georgia. While in school, John learned the most advanced techniques in restorative dentistry, and he continues to advance his dental care through continuing education. His favorite part of dentistry is getting to know his patients and their families while providing comfortable and high-quality dental care. In his spare time, he enjoys playing soccer, cheering on the Dawgs in Athens, and spending time on the lake with family and friends. John is returning to Atlanta to be closer to family and is excited about the opportunity to join the 1st Choice Dental Care team!
