I grew up in West Islip and studied the Pre-Requisites for Dental Hygiene at Farmingdale Liberal Arts as well as Dental Assisting at Wilson Tech.
One of my favorite parts of this job is the relationships I create with our patients. Usually, I am the first contact they have with the office; they depend on me to address their needs, whether it's regarding payment plan, treatment plan, insurance questions, a toothache, or just plain concern. Being in the dental field for over 25 years is very helpful and I enjoy assisting their questions with confidence.
There is nothing more gratifying then turning that apprehensive, “scared-of-dentist” patient into a relaxed and comfortable one. I truly love my job when I have a new patient walk into the office afraid to smile (because they dislike theirs so much) and then watching them come up to the front desk after treatment, so confident and glowing with their new beautiful new smile. I'm so proud to be a part of Northport Family Dental.
In my spare time, I love to garden, go to the beach, and spend time with my two girls.
