Clinical Assistant/Clinic Coordinator
I am a people-person, so I love that my work allows me to meet so many wonderful people. There’s nothing better than seeing amazing end results post treatment and knowing I had a part in that process! In addition to taking care of patients throughout their treatment, I also lead the clinical team. I’m proud of my education and certifications: I’m a Certified and Registered Dental Assistant with Expanded Functions and X-ray certified, too.
I’ve been part of Transcend Orthodontics since 1999. The level of trust, respect, appreciation, and teamwork that we have is unmatched. It’s been a blessing to have the opportunity to grow and excel in this position. And after 23 years of service, I still feel proud of what I do every day!
I am an ardent Philadelphia Eagles and New York Yankees fan and love going to the beach as often as possible. I am also a HUGE sneaker collector—too many to count! Meditation and positivity are my focus both at home and at work to keep me centered. My niece is named after me and I love her to pieces!
I enjoy working with all of our patients but especially the kids: it’s exciting to watch them grow up into young adults, with beautiful smiles that fill them with confidence! I work chairside with the doctors during procedures, helping them and our patient. I also teach patients about home care and take impressions, photos, and X-rays.
I’ve worked in the field since 2011 and found my professional family here in 2013. I love how we get along so well and keep our patients smiling!
When not working, I love spending time with my three children (twins and a young daughter). I like to work out, do Zumba, and travel. I also enjoy attending my daughters’ cheer competitions and my son’s baseball games.
I like meeting new people, welcoming them to Transcend Orthodontics, and helping them understand their treatment. It’s fun to get to know a person as they’re starting care and then see them change as they achieve their new smile! I oversee all new patients, from the first call to the day they start treatment.
After staring in the field in 1990, I joined the team in 2005 and can’t imagine a more perfect fit. I don’t see our practice as my job: this is my home away from home!
I am a “people person” and love my family unconditionally. My best days are spent in the great outdoors, especially at the beach with my granddaughters. And I love spending time at my happy place, my beautiful island of Puerto Rico.
I like getting to know patients on a personal basis. It’s rewarding to be part of helping people get the smile they’ve always wanted and to see how happy they are with all they accomplish! The before and after photos are the absolute best!
It is a joy working alongside Dr. Feibish, Dr. Sandman, and Dr. Bonaiuto to provide patient care. I can’t imagine a happier, more wonderful place! Our team is one of a kind. We can handle anything and everything. We are all hard working, caring people who genuinely care for the patients and the practice.
When not working, I love working out, singing karaoke, hiking, going to the beach and pool, and just simply hanging out with friends.
It is my pleasure to greet our patients and prospective patients with a smile and schedule appointments to be as convenient as possible. I wear many hats to support my team. I truly enjoy the beautiful smiles from the beginning of treatment to completion. My daily goal is maintain a safe and positive demeanor at the front desk.
I love seeing the wonderful smiles on patients’ faces. Each person is so excited to be getting the smile of their dreams and that excitement is contagious! I work at the front desk, where I greet patients with a warm smile: I’m genuinely glad to see them! My background is in customer service and I enjoy the health sciences, so working at our office is the perfect fit for me.
I am happily married and a proud grandmother of six grandchildren. I love to spend time with my family! I am people person and look forward to help in any way I can.
My favorite part of my job is not only seeing the end result of each treatment, but seeing how far patients have come from where they started. I work with patients from the beginning of their treatment, ensuing that they are comfortable and given all the information they need for a successful outcome.
I joined the Transcend Orthodontics team in 2017. I hold certifications in radiation health and safety, infection control, CPR, and pending CDA. Our team is amazing—ambitious, full of energy, and caring. We aren’t just a team—we’re family!
I am a mother of two human children and one fur baby. I enjoy photography and art, eating delicious meals, shopping, and creating a fun environment for everyone around me.
Born and raised in New York, NY, I currently live in the Hudson County area. I graduated from Bayonne High School and attended NJCU where I pledged for the wonderful Alpha Phi Omega, a Greek service organization where my love for helping others thrived. Transitioning into the orthodontic field was fueled by my passion for turning information into action. I consider myself a ‘forever student,’ eager to build skill sets and stay in tune through continued coursework and professional development.
As you can tell, I love to be challenged, which I am almost every day here! I am lucky to work alongside professionals who push me to advance to the next level and further my intellect and skills.
My hobbies include curling up to a good book, traveling, family time, and good eats. I not like other girls…I know exactly what I want for dinner. I’ve been thinking about it since lunch!
I am here to make sure patient ledgers are up to date. We believe everyone deserves an amazing smile, so we offer different payment options for those who are in need. My door is always open and I’m always willing to listen so we can come up with a suitable solution! I enjoy creating a relationship where patients feel safe to discuss otherwise difficult monetary situations.
I started working at an oral surgeon’s office with zero knowledge of the dental world. I was hired on faith and I haven’t looked back since!
I’ve been married to my best friend Gus for 12 years. I have two amazing sons, John and Joel, and the cutest Pekingese named Peka. We love spending time together and making every moment count.
