Meet the Team



Office Manager and Treatment Coordinator

In general it's my job to make sure the office runs smoothly from day to day.  I've worked in the orthodontic field for more than 18 years, and love the feeling that comes from providing families with exceptional care and confidence from a beautiful smile. I love coming to work and partnering with such great people that work so well together - we are like family.

When I'm not in the office, I love to take walks and work out - but mostly I love to spend time with my husband, my two beautiful daughters, Chloe and Elle, and our three adorable dogs, Charlie and Eve, and Star.

R.D.A. - Orthodontic Dental Assistant

I have been working in the dental field for the last 20 years but I really enjoy doing orthodontics and I hope to continue doing it for many more years to come! I love working with patients of all ages. It gives me great satisfaction to see how I am able to help someone gain confidence by creating a perfect smile. It is very rewarding to work together with the doctor and staff to deliver great service to all of our patients.

I live in Watchung, New Jersey with my husband, Helder, and two sons, Diego and Andre. I enjoy reading and cooking. My family is always my priority and I enjoy every minute spent with them!
