We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice. We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
I am one of the first people our patients see when they come into the office, so I make sure to welcome them with a big, friendly smile! I treat our patients with the kindness and respect they deserve and enjoy knowing that I’ve helped our patients to the best of my ability, whether I’m scheduling an appointment or answering a question about their account. Everyone here works so well together as a team, and it is reflected in the way we interact with our patients. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband, kickboxing, and practicing yoga.
Our patients’ comfort is my top priority, whether I’m assisting the doctors during a dental procedure or taking X-rays and other records. Working in dentistry has been a very satisfying experience; it’s wonderful to know that our patients feel better about their smile because of the care they’ve received here. My time outside the office is spent with my son.
When patients call the office, I am one of the friendly voices they speak with, and when they come in for an appointment, my smile is one of the first they see. I am here to assist with scheduling, general questions, and anything else that will give our patients a great experience with us. Each patient is special to me, and it shows in the individualized attention I give. While I love my office family, I also enjoy spending my free time with my friends.
My duties in our office include answering phones, assisting our new patients, verifying insurance, and helping to schedule appointments, and each day I can honestly say that I enjoy what I do! I love talking with our patients, and seeing first-hand how great a smile can make people look and feel. Our entire team believes in creating a positive experience for patients by providing the right treatments and making each office visit as comfortable possible.
I work to ensure our patients’ dental health by providing gentle yet thorough hygiene care. I understand that a trip to the dentist can leave some patients feeling anxious, so I’m sure to give extra TLC whenever needed. I love getting to know our patients and becoming a regular part of their lives. It’s so rewarding to see how happy our patients are when they’ve had a cosmetic procedure or have restored their dental health to an optimal state. My free time is spent traveling and going to concerts and sporting events. I’m also training to become a makeup artist on the weekends!
I look forward to building great friendships with our patients and their families while providing effective hygiene care and education. I love everything about my job, especially knowing that I get to make a positive difference in our patients’ lives by helping them achieve a beautiful, healthy smile. My husband, Sean, and I have a daughter named Harper and a pug named Noelle. I enjoy practicing yoga and spending time with my family.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I have spent the past 24 years as a dental hygienist for Dr. Vanaria, and not a day goes by that I don’t look forward to seeing our patients. While providing high-quality care is my top priority, I also like to keep things light and fun, mostly because I love to see my patients smile! I also enjoy continuing my education and learning about all the new technology available to improve our patients’ health. Outside the office, my participation in Jubilate Deo Chorale and Orchestra has allowed me to travel all around the world to places like Italy, France, and even Carnegie Hall in New York!
I work alongside Drs. Vanaria, Johnson and Grise during many of our patients’ procedures, in addition to taking X-rays and impressions. Getting to see my patients smile is the greatest part of my job. I love working with so many different people and getting to be around so many fun personalities. Many of us have worked together for a long time, so we’ve become really good friends. At home, I have two sons and one dog to keep me busy. I enjoy attending my sons’ sporting events and going to the beach.
I am committed to ensuring our patients’ oral health and general well-being by providing gentle, high-quality hygiene services. I love getting to know each patient on an individual level, learning about their needs and goals, and customizing their care plan accordingly. It’s very rewarding to see a patient improve their dental health, as well as their confidence. My free time is spent with my husband and our dog. Reading and running are my favorite pastimes, and we also enjoy traveling.
