Carol, RDH

Dental Hygienist

I started my career in 1989 and began working here four years later. I love being in an office with a family feel. Because I’m such a people person I enjoy treating patients of all ages and getting to know them and their families. I’ve made many friends over the years because of this job. It’s a great feeling to help people improve their oral health and develop a long lasting dental relationship at the same time. Our doctors are terrific. They provide the most up-to-date dental treatment in a caring and compassionate way.

I am married and have two children. I’m involved in school activities and Girl Scouts and enjoy family time at the beach and in Vermont, biking, and gardening.

Linda, RDH

Dental Hygienist

I started working here in 1982 shortly after starting my career in dental hygiene. I enjoy helping all of our patients achieve and maintain their dental health. There is nothing better than seeing someone realize that there’s nothing to be afraid of at our office. I love working with our doctors because they are so passionate about what they do. Excellent work is their goal all the time, which goes for our entire team.

I have been married for 24 years and have a teenage boy and a Yorkie. I am active in my community and am a committee member for Troupe 15 Boy Scouts. My hobbies include cooking, reading, and driving my son to all of his sporting events and activities.

Suzanne, RDH

Dental Hygienist

Dental Hygiene is my passion. After graduating college I entered the dental profession as a dental assistant in 2005, and I am so proud to have gone on to become a dental hygienist. I thrive on continually educating myself about this profession so I can be a better clinician. I truly love interacting with people and take pride in offering patients a calm and thorough experience filled with compassion. Our doctors and team share a common goal of educating patients on how to achieve optimal oral health. Working in this type of environment allows me to do my best each day.

When I am not practicing hygiene I enjoy fitness, entertaining family and friends, and most importantly spending time with my husband Kyle, our little baby boy Max and our doggie Walter. We are a very close knit family and love football season. Sundays are usually spent watching the Eagles game and enjoying a big Italian dinner and our homemade wine!

Karen, RDH

Dental Hygienist

I started working with Drs. Harry, David, and Michael in 1999 after starting out in dentistry in 1975. I love working in an office that provides high quality dental care. I also enjoy meeting the patients and getting to know them personally, along with educating them on how they can maintain good oral health. I live in Mt. Laurel and have a daughter attending nursing school and a son getting his mechanical engineering degree. I’m very proud of them both.

Vanessa, RDH

Dental Hygienist

Several years ago, I decided to make a big change and enter the dental field after having worked in Production in the film industry for 15 years. I wanted to change my career so that I could have a more fulfilled life by taking care of people and helping them to maintain or improve their health. I truly enjoy getting to know my patients, educating them about proper oral care, and making them feel comfortable while in our office, and in the hygiene chair. I always aim to exhibit empathy and kindness so that patients can put their trust in me and the talented and compassionate dentists at Monokian.

In my free time, I enjoy do-it-yourself projects around the house, wining and dining with friends and family, warm weather bike rides and sunset walks with my dog.

Elyse, RDH

Dental Hygienist

I knew I wanted to be in the dental field at a young age. I graduated Dental Hygiene school in 2000 and can honestly say I love being a hygienist. As a dedicated clinician specializing in quality patient care I give 100% to my craft. I love learning and staying up to date with the newest technology and hygiene techniques. I strive to become a better clinician for the benefit of my patients. At Monokian Dentistry we are a family practice where I can make strong connections with my patients. I love when patients become friends, then friends become like family. .

I live in Mt. Laurel with my husband Tom and we share 3 teenagers Alex, Alyson and Emily who attend Lenape High School. We are a very outgoing and adventurous family. You can usually find us traveling cross country in our RV exploring national parks. We love hiking, biking, kayaking, and exploring off beaten trails. When I am not traveling, I enjoy projects around my house, spending time with good friends at local restaurants and breweries, and shopping with my daughters.

Skylar, RDH

Dental Hygienist

I became a hygienist in 2019. I was unsure of what path I wanted to take, but when I started hygiene school I instantly fell in love with dentistry. My favorite parts of my job are forming relationships with my patients, and helping patients understand their oral care..

When I'm not at work I love spending time with my boyfriend who I have been dating since high school, my mom, and my 2 cats. I am a cat mom to 2 Calico sisters. My boyfriend and I love fishing and walking trails in the woods in our spare time.

Jordan, RDH

Dental Hygienist

I’ve been practicing Dental Hygiene for the past three years. When I became a part of the Monokian Family Dentistry team I knew I found exactly where I belonged. I take pride in providing quality care alongside of our Doctors all while helping patients stay as comfortable as possible during their visits. Overall, the relationships I build with patients everyday during their appointment is the best part of my job.

I currently live in Philadelphia’s Fishtown neighborhood with my husband Danny and our very loved rescue dog Bowie. I am originally from the Jersey Shore. Although I live in the city, I still love the beach and visit family there often. I enjoy spending my free time traveling, spending time with friends and of course eating well at the great restaurants in our area.

Michele, RDH

Dental Hygienist

I started my hygiene career in 1999 and have loved it ever since. I recently joined the Monokian team and know I made the best choice. Finding an office with cutting edge dentistry and the warmth of a family practice is rare. But Monokian is that place.

When I am not working I love spending time entertaining my friends and family. I am a mom of three one girl and two boys. Now a Grandmom of one beautiful boy and one on the way! All who keep me busy and entertained.
