Meet Our Staff

Hello! I am the 'college assistant' and I do a little bit of everything. My primary job is to take care of sterilizing instruments and to help with patient flow by seating patients. You'll sometimes find me working at the front desk to greet our wonderful patients and help with scheduling appointments. I enjoy my job so much that I have chosen to major in pre-dentistry at Rutgers University, where I am currently a full-time student. In my spare time, I love reading, going to the beach, and spending time with my friends and family. I look forward to seeing you in our office!

Hi, I'm Karin! I have been an orthodontic assistant for 28 years and an Old Bridge resident for 37 years. I love what I do! I truly enjoy seeing how comfortable we can make an apprehensive patient feel when they come to our office. Our staff puts emphasis on making each patient feel important. In my spare time I enjoy taking long walks with my daughter and German Shepherd. My husband and I enjoy good food, so cooking is among my favorite hobbies. We hope you choose our office for your orthodontic treatment. We would love to see your happy smile join ours.

I'm the financial coordinator in our office and my duties include generating affordable budget plans with parents, coordinating insurance benefits, and maintaining patient accounts. The most rewarding parts of my job are meeting great families and seeing our patients develop beautiful smiles. I was born and raised in Perth Amboy and love serving the families around here! At home, I love to spend quality time with my son, TJ. I also enjoy cooking, gardening, baking and scrapbooking!
