Tina – Dental Hygienist
I have been practicing dental hygiene since 2002 and was excited to join Smiles on Broadway in 2012. I have never before experienced such a wonderful practice. I enjoy working with such amazing team members and such caring doctors. Our patients are so wonderful that it is a pleasure to treat them and their families. Through continuing education I am able to provide our patients with the most up-to-date, comfortable treatment available. Providing them with the tools they need to keep a healthy smile is such a very rewarding part of my profession.
Catherine – Dental Hygienist
I am so happy to have the privilege of being surrounded with a “family” of colleagues, here at Smiles on Broadway. Having devoted the past 12 years to growing as a Registered Dental Hygienist, I have established an extensive competency in all aspects of oral health while maintaining my patient’s trust and confidence. During my career, I have had the pleasure of working as the Official Dental Hygienist for the New York Islanders, and rewardingly taught Dental Hygiene at the Farmingdale State College. Not only do I stress the value in educating my patients, I thrive on continuous learning. My long term goals are to obtain a Masters in the Science of Dental Hygiene and have the opportunity to teach at both the clinical and the academic aspect of this ever changing field.
