Meet the Team

  Yelena is our office manager and is an expert in dealing with the complex world of insurance.  She can answer any questions you may have and give you a complete treatment plan so you are fully informed.  She has a BS in Mathematics and worked in banking before becoming an dental office manager 12 years ago.  When not in the office you can find Yelena reading, cooking and going to the beach.

  Marissa has over 25 years of experience in all aspects of dentistry, culminating in getting her hygiene degree in 2003.   She started out as a dental assistant in high school and she was hooked on teeth!    She is a local girl, graduating from Rutgers University in 2000 and  hygiene school in 2003.  She loves animals (she has three dogs!) and enjoys renovating her house, volunteering at an animal shelter and spending time exploring NYC with her two children.  She has been with our office since 2016 so if you have any questions about maintaining your teeth she is always available to talk (and talk...and talk...and talk!!)

Bella is a chairside assistant with over fifteen years experience in all aspects of dentistry.  She is a CDA and RDA and  has certifications in expanded functions.  She has a warm, caring manner and will make you feel comfortable from the moment you come in the office.  When not in the office, she is usually baking with her 13 year old daughter or newborn son or probably taking care of her five birds.

Maryrose has been a dental hygienist since 2007. She graduated from Bergen Community College and obtained her Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences at Rutgers University in 2018. She is such a skilled clinician and teaches at the dental hygiene university program. As a hygienist, she strives to be her patients’ partner in maintaining their oral health. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and 5-year old son, star gazing and, most importantly, shoe shopping.
