Meet our Dentists
Seema Chawla-Miranda, D.M.D.
Dr. Chawla joins us from Mississauga, Canada. An Honors B.S. grad from the University of Toronto, Seema came to the U.S. to attend Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and decided to stay. She served her residency at the Navajo Reservation in Flagstaff, Arizona after receiving her A.E.G.D. from the LMC Department of Dental Medicine. Seema knew she wanted to be a dentist ever since she watched with a mirror as her dentist removed her wisdom teeth.
When not at Konikoff Dentistry, Seema enjoys spending time with husband, Dr. Joshua Miranda (also a Konikoff dentist), learning to cook Indian food, and playing golf.
J. Mark Reichley, D.M.D.
Dr. Reichley lives his life by the following philosophy, “Greatness can be achieved as long as you give the present moment your heartfelt best and always strive to do better today than yesterday.”
Born and raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Dr. Reichley now calls Virginia Beach home. He joins us from the US Navy, where he practiced dentistry for four years. Prior to that, he earned a B.S. in Biology from the University of Maine in 2004 and his D.M.D. from the University of Pennsylvania, School of Dental Medicine in 2008.
Dr. Reichley has advanced training in placing and restoring dental implants and has been awarded fellowship credentials in the International Congress of Oral Implantology for demonstrating proficiency and excellence in implant placement surgery. He also has advanced training in Endodontics and enjoys furthering his clinical education and training to provide his patients with the latest treatment solutions.
On the personal side, Dr. Reichley loves being “on the go.” He enjoys golf, working out, and spending time with friends and family. He participated in Operation Unified Response in Haiti after the January 2010 earthquake, and various other humanitarian missions. These missions have taken him all over the globe including Central America in Honduras, Guatemala, Columbia, Belize, Nicaragua, and Western Africa in Senegal, Ghana, Cameroon, and Sao Tome. Dr. Reichley lives in Virginia Beach with his wife, Jessica, and their two children.
Ashley Sara, D.M.D.
Raised in Birmingham, Alabama, Dr. Ashley Sara was a double major at the University of Alabama, studying both biology and classics. She received her DMD from the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine.
Before joining Konikoff Dentistry, she worked at a family practice in Jacksonville, Florida for several years. Her husband is a physician with the U.S. Navy.
In her spare time, Dr. Sara reads as much as she can and belongs to a book club. Dr. Sara also enjoys knitting and making quilts. Although she loves relaxing with a good book, she also likes music, dancing and exercise. She is a licensed Zumba® instructor.
Andrea Wissink, D.D.S.
Dr. Andrea Wissink was born and rasied in upstate New York. After graduating from Cortland State University in Cortland, New York, with a degree in biology, she earned her DDS degree from Virginia Commonwealth University.
Working in Virginia appealed to her because she enjoys the state’s warmer climate compared to home. She chose Konikoff Dentistry for its continued emphasis on the patient. “Everyone is so genuine,” she said. In her spare time, Dr. Wissink enjoys riding horses and spending time with her lab mix dog.
