Our friendly, dedicated, and energetic orthodontics team is committed to working with you and your family to create a positive experience every time you visit our practice.
I have been an orthodontic assistant for more than 30 years, and several years ago completed the education to become a Certified Dental Assistant. I have had the wonderful experience of being part of Dr. Schechtman’s orthodontic team for 16 years. Dr. Schechtman has his patient’s needs first and foremost in his mind. He always keeps abreast of all the newest advances in his field and brings those benefits to his patients. It is amazing to see our patients grow up before our eyes to become young adults. For all our patients, young and young at heart, the end results are a fantastic smile that lasts a lifetime. That first look in the mirror when they get their braces off is so rewarding!
As our treatment coordinator, meeting new patients and ensuring that they feel comfortable here and have all the information they need about our office, new orthodontic advances, and their treatment are my first priorities. Having had my own children go through braces, and myself years ago as well, I can appreciate any concerns and questions our patients and parents may have. Interacting with our light-hearted, friendly, and knowledgeable orthodontist and staff is another plus of my job. The atmosphere here is always friendly and positive, and it’s great to watch Dr. Schechtman use his vast orthodontic knowledge and experience to transform some hidden smiles to bright healthy and happy ones!
Having worked in a medical office setting for several years, I am familiar with the needs of both our patients and parents. As Dr. Schechtman’s business manager, I am committed to ensuring our patients and parents are completely satisfied with the personal attention they receive. I enjoy working with Dr. Schechtman because he strives to provide a warm, energetic, and positive environment for each patient along with a commitment to excellent care.
I have been working as an orthodontic dental assistant for more than five years. I attended the New York School for Medical & Dental Assistants, where I obtained a Certificate of Dental Assisting. After finishing school, I looked for a challenging yet rewarding position. As luck would have it, I joined Dr. Schechtman’s orthodontic practice. I enjoy our office, working with Dr. Schechtman and our staff, and most importantly, caring for our patients. I look forward to seeing you at your next visit!
I have more than 10 years experience in the dental field. In handling all of our insurance claims and insurance matters, I always try my best to efficiently service our patients’ needs. My ability to understand and work with insurance companies makes me an asset to Dr. Schechtman’s practice and our patients.
I have been working with Dr. Schechtman for over a year and a half. When I started, I was responsible for cleaning the clinical area and sterilizing instruments. Currently, I am excited to be going through the training to become an orthodontic assistant! I am fortunate to be a part of such a dynamic team! In my spare time, I spend quality time with my daughter. I also enjoy working on cars and riding dirt bikes.
I began my career as an Orthodontic Assistant in 1998 and became certified in 2002. I absolutely love what I do, each day is different. Orthodontics is fun, especially working with Dr. Schechtman and my co-workers. The patients are happy to come in. We host raffles, educational events and we don’t use any needles! Parents are excited and amazed at the progression of theirs kid’s treatment. Each patient has different needs and Dr. Schechtman thinks outside the box to meet their individual needs, so it is also educational for me. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, cooking and especially spending time with my 2 year old!
I have been working in doctors’ offices for almost a decade. I was extremely happy to be able to become a part of Dr. Schechtman’s team. I love coming to work everyday because it means that I get to work with an amazing, knowledgeable and friendly group of people. Dr. Schechtman is simply “the best”. He truly cares about each and every patient that walks in the door and he is able to give them the wonderful smile that they have always wanted. Seeing the happy, smiling faces of Dr. Schechtman’s patients and being part of such a superb team makes working for him a very rewarding experience.
