Certified Dental Assistant
I am responsible for preparing and setting up our clinical areas for patient appointments and assisting the doctor with anything he needs while our patients are in the office. It is my goal to make each person feel as comfortable as possible so they leave with a happy, healthy smile on their face. Whether they are children or adults, I want our patients to have an amazing experience at the dentist.
I am responsible for upholding our practice standards for customer service and billing, insurance, and scheduling needs. I enjoy establishing great relationships with our patients and their families. It is important for me to fulfill their dental needs and to achieve their desire to have a healthier smile. I have been working in the dental field since 1989, and I have enjoyed it ever since. I am a loving, devoted mother of three teenagers: Eddie, Michael, and Victoria. We live in North Syracuse, and I enjoy seeing my family become who they are today and what they’ve become.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I bring 14 years of dental hygiene experience to our office. I graduated in 1997 from hygiene school and prior to that I worked as a dental assistant for both general dentists and pediatric dentists. My favorite part of working here is meeting our patients and identifying their needs. I can recognize when my patients are anxious, and I work very hard to get them to a comfort level that allows us both to have a pleasant dental experience. I very much enjoy getting to know my patients both personally and professionally. I am happily married with two young children. I enjoy playing softball and am an avid New York Yankees fan.
I am responsible for scheduling our patients’ appointments, greeting them as they come into our office, and dealing with insurance companies on their behalf. I enjoy meeting all the new people that come here every day and catching up with our existing patients during their appointments. Dr. Patel makes all his patients feel very comfortable and always has their best interests in mind.
