Orthodontic Assistant and Lab Technician
I love working with people and helping them improve their self-esteem by improving their smiles. It’s a joy to watch their confidence grow, along with their personality, as they move through their orthodontic treatment. We may be a small office, but we work together in all that we do. We are a family and we treat each other that way.
In my free time, I enjoy teaching yoga, riding on the back of my husband’s motorcycle, reading, writing, and spending time with my family.
I love spending my days working with a great team and providing excellent customer service to our incredible patients. Each person brings so much positive energy to our office, and we’re always smiling and laughing. There is a lot of love between our staff, which makes a great environment for our patients and all of us.
My husband Jack and I have been married for 30 years. We have three awesome children: two sons and a daughter. All three are adults now, so my husband and I have lots of free time to travel. We love the beach and hope to have a house there someday.
I am one of Dr. Leizer’s dental assistants and coordinate our social media presence. I love working with people and helping them improve their self-esteem by improving their smiles. Watching our patients grow and become more confident as they see their smile change never grows old! I also really enjoy working with Dr. Leizer and my co-workers. They are very easygoing and everyone works so well together as a team.
I am happily married with three children and a dog named Lenny. I enjoy going to the gym, doing any outdoor activities with my family, shopping, and dancing. My family and I frequently travel down to the Jersey Shore, especially to Belmar and LBI. I am also very involved in our town’s Pop Warner football league where my two sons play.
Registered Dental Assistant
I spend my days with our patients, making sure they are comfortable and happy while here. It’s rewarding to experience their journeys to healthy, beautiful smiles. I began my career in general dentistry but found my home in orthodontics. Working with the kids is a lot of fun! Everyone here works together with the same common goal, and that is making sure the patients come first.
At home, I have three wonderful kids and two playful dogs. I love spending time with my family and taking advantage of all the little things. We enjoy the outdoors just being together.
