Meet Our Hygiene Team
Senior Clinical Hygiene Director
Welcome! We look forward to meeting you! I have been working as a registered dental hygienist with Dr. Spielman for 20 years and with Park 56 Dental Group since its inception in 1997! Our office is a wonderful place to work, and we always do our best to make our patients feel at home here. I live in New Jersey with my wonderful husband, Samuel, and our two boys, Ethan and Elan.
Welcome to our dental practice! My duties as a registered dental hygienist are to practice prevention in dental oral health care by assessing and diagnosing each patient in respect to each person’s individual needs. Although each patient is different and has different needs, including different needs in regards to interacting; I’d like to think I always maintain a certain level of professionalism, while also trying to make the dental experience as pleasant and positive as possible. My family consists of my parents, three siblings, a niece and a nephew, all of whom I adore.
Hello, it’s nice to meet you! I earned my degrees in dental hygiene and nutrition from the State University of New York at Farmingdale. I also have a Bachelor’s Degree in multidisciplinary studies from SUNY at Stony Brook. I have been practicing dental hygiene for ten years and have been with Park 56 Dental Group for seven years. I am certified in CPR, Local Anesthetic and Nitrous Oxide Administration.
