We are very fortunate to have assembled a patient services team that not only understands the importance of putting our patients first, but enjoys doing so, day after day.
Patient CoordinatorWhen my husband, Dr. Harry, and I founded this practice over 30 years ago, we were determined to create an environment that had a family feel. We are immensely pleased to see that, even as we've grown into the practice we are today, we've been able to maintain that same warm, friendly atmosphere. I absolutely love working here and couldn’t see myself doing anything else; nor would I want to. I love working with my husband, sons, daughters-in-law, and of course, our amazing staff! I take great pleasure in interacting with our wonderful patients and seeing their families grow as well. It’s an incredible feeling when you have watched multiple generations of patients grow up and start families of their own and then bring their children and grandchildren in for their first check-up.
My husband and I met at Catawba College in Salisbury, North Carolina, in 1970. Upon his graduation, I transferred and graduated from James Madison University located in my home town of Harrisonburg, Virginia. When Harry and I married in 1974, I moved to this area. I taught school for several years but when we decided to open up our dental practice, I retired and actively helped to build our practice.
In addition to our two amazing sons, and our two wonderful daughters-in-law, we also have five precious grandchildren: Evan, Luke, Mason, Leah. and Gia. Spending time with them is my absolute favorite activity, but I also enjoy golfing, traveling, reading a good novel, going to the movies, and relaxing with family and friends.
Patient CoordinatorI began working as our insurance coordinator in 2007. I really enjoy the relationship I’ve built with my co-workers and our patients. Our doctors are the best in their field and always up-to-date with the newest technologies, bringing the most beautiful smiles to each person who comes through our door. I’ve been married since 2010 and my husband and I have a son, Brody, who keeps us on our toes. In my free time I love cooking and spending time with my family.
Insurance CoordinatorMy job is to help patients have the best possible dental experience. I started working here when I began my career in 2010 and I really enjoy being around this great group of people. Our doctors genuinely love what they do and are very passionate about giving patients the best care possible. I am married and have two beautiful daughters, Adrianna and Alexis and a dog, Layla. I enjoy spending time with friends and family. I am a native New Yorker with a love for sports and am a proud Yankee and Giants fan.
Treament CoordinatorWorking at Monokian Family & Cosmetic Dentistry has made me feel like part of a family. I value the relationships that I build with my co-workers and patients. My goal is to make sure that each and every patient is comfortable and confident that they are getting the very best dental care. Whether you are here as a new patient for a regular exam or an existing patient with an extensive treatment plan, you will always leave happy. At Monokian Dentistry our doctors utilize advanced technologies so that we can provide advanced care for each and every patient. Our doctors have superior in-office technology that allows us to give every patient the beautiful smile that they’ve always dreamed of. I am happily married since 2004 to my best friend. We have 2 amazing boys, Jakob and Jordan. When we are not working you will find us at a baseball field somewhere watching our boys play their favorite sport.
New Patient CoordinatorBefore joining Monokian Dentistry in February of 2016, I trained as a pastry chef and spent several years working in food service. Although I’ve always loved the culinary arts, my jobs left me feeling somewhat unfulfilled. I wanted to have more of an impact on people’s lives. I began to think about working in health care, specifically patient services. Then I applied at Monokian Family & Cosmetic Dentistry and began my career.
What attracted me to Monokian Dentistry is their commitment to providing both superior clinical care and excellent patient care. Since my first day here, everyone has encouraged me to learn all that I can - and do everything I can – to be the best patient coordinator I can be. I cannot imagine myself working at any other practice.
