Serena - Registered Dental Hygienist

Serena has an enthusiasm that is unmatched.  Her zeal for dentistry started when she took assisting classes in high school. After graduation, Serena attended the Fones School of Dental Hygiene.  Serena has been with the practice since 2008.  Her dedication to her field is unmatched. 

Michelle - Registered Dental Hygienist

Michelle has been in the dental field for over 10 years, first as an assistant, then she went on to Hygiene School and has been a vital part in keeping our patients healthy..  Michelle is trained in Periodontal Therapy and is part of our Soft Tissue Management team.

Sarah - Financial and Scheduling Coordinator

Sarah graduated from Rutgers University and has adapted to the dental field quickly.  She has a knack of understanding the complexities of dental insurance from a fresh perspective.  Dental Insurance is a game where the opponent makes up the rules and doesn't tell them to you while you are playing the game.  To make things more complicated each company sets their own rules and different rules exist for each  plan under each company.  While this is a tangled web to navigate, Sarah has been doing well at deciphering how to get things resolved.

Lucy - Dental Assistant

Lucy is the newest member but brings with her a lot of enthusiasm.  Lucy truly loves what she does!  She is an asset to the practice as she oversees patient's treatment from start to finish.


Garrett Tom - Intern

Garrett is away in Dental School and is missed by the entire staff.  Garrett phoned the office 4 years ago asking if we needed any help over the summer in our office.  Since then, he has been working in our office while off from school.  Garrett is now entering his 3rd year at the University of Maryland Dental School, the oldest dental school in the U.S.  We can't wait until he comes back!  Garrett will always have a place in our office.
