Office Manager/Financial Coordinator
My job is to juggle many aspects of the practice to make sure everything runs smoothly, from keeping the schedule running on time to insurance and everything else. Making everyone feel comfortable while they are here or on the telephone is an important responsibility. I have been with this office for more than 15 years and have enjoyed meeting and greeting all our patients, reassuring them that their visit to the dentist will be fun! Dr. Korson is great, both caring and fun, and the best boss! The staff members love their jobs as well, and that happiness spills over to the patients.
I am married and have two children, two sons-in-laws, and four grandchildren, all patients of Dr. Korson. I love to walk, especially along the beach, read, and spend time with my family. I also love music and play “who sings this song?” with Dr. K all day.
I am responsible for getting the kids to have fun while teaching them to brush and floss their teeth. My technique is to start talking about anything that they are interested in and, by the time I am finished, we are done and a good time was had by all. I have been with Dr. Korson for close to six years but have worked in pediatric offices for more than 20 years. The best thing about this practice is the way everyone is working toward the same goal, to get the kids to enjoy their time here and for us to enjoy the journey as well. This really is a great dental family.
I have two special men in my life, my husband, Ric, and my step-son, Daniel. When I am not working, I can be found shopping, working out or at the beach. I am also a popular culture junkie and fashionista.
I help maintain my patients’ healthy smiles in a fun, comfortable, and educational environment. I take a gentle approach to making the kids feel welcome and relaxed and truly enjoy watching them grow up. I have been working with Dr. K and the rest of our amazing team for more than six years. We all want to make the kids feel safe at the dentist.
My husband’s name is Mike, and we have two daughters, Ally and Brook, along with two Shih-Tzus, Willy and Remy. I love to read, shop, go to the movies, and travel. People who know me are surprised to find that I am also a fan of free-style/hip-hop music.
I am a chairside assistant but I also help out at the desk, sterilize instruments, take X-rays, answer the phone, and basically function as Dr. Korson’s “Girl Friday.” I have worked for Dr. Korson for more than ten years, but I now work only part-time so I can take care of my two children. Working here is all about the kids, getting to know them and making their dental experiences as positive as possible. They make me laugh and the time goes by so quickly. Our office is fun, friendly, and best of all, full of magic!
I have been married to my husband, Shawn for a bit over ten years, and we have two children who love hanging out in the office. Brody, our German Short Haired Pointer, is the newest addition to my family. I am originally from Cuba and am bilingual in English and Spanish.
I am one of Dr. Korson’s chairside assistants, and my biggest responsibility for the eight years I have been here is working as a team to allow the kids to ease through their visits. I really am proud of the fact that I am part of this wonderful team working together to achieve the same goal. We value the importance of the relationships we’ve built with the children and their parents. I am so happy to be in an office that values these relationships.
My family is very special to me. My husband, Ben, and I have three children. Our son is in the Navy and spends much of his time underwater in a sub. Our second is attending FIT and is majoring in marketing. Our youngest just graduated high school and is going to Rutgers in the fall.
I not only work at the front desk but also help coordinate the staff and scheduling. Since I am married to Dr. Korson, I am happy to step in whenever I am needed. Originally trained as an art teacher, I have been able to put my skills in art and my love of children to good use in the office. Steve and I have worked for many years together, and I have a keen understanding of the dynamics of the practice. This is a family, and no one understands this better than I.
Coincidentally, I have the same kids and dogs as Dr. Korson. I love spending time with the family but while Steve is playing golf or watching the Yankees, I am out with friends or doing my artwork. I am proud of the logos I have created for the practice and my contribution to the design of the office.
