Receptionist, Dental Assistant

I work in two areas of our practice, both in the clinical area where I assist Dr. Lorino and at the front desk where I greet patients and answer the phones. The best part of my job is working so closely with children. I love the smiles on their faces when they get to pick out colors for their braces and seeing their smile’s unique progression from beginning to end.  I create a bond with my patients and love to see the excitement in their eyes as they get closer to their perfect smile. Not only is Dr. Lorino an amazing orthodontist, but he genuinely cares about his staff. He makes coming to work every day a true pleasure.

I am a mother of three beautiful children. I enjoy bike riding, swimming, and working out. On the weekends, I like to spend quality time with my family exploring new adventures.

Receptionist, Financial Specialist

I work at our front desk where I greet patients with a warm smile, schedule appointments, answer the phones, and giving homecare instructions. I began working in the dental field in 1992 as a dental assistant and am currently a Registered Dental Assistant with a license in radiology. I joined Dr. Lorino’s team in 2008. I love interacting with our parents and building relationships with them based on trust and mutual respect. Seeing a child at the beginning of treatment and then at the end with a new beautiful smile has to be the best part of working here though!

I have been married for 18 years to my wonderful husband, Dave. We have three beautiful children, Rebecca, Rachel, and Dylan. I enjoy spending my free time in the garden, scrap-booking, and going to the beach. I can most often be found at the basketball, football, and baseball fields watching my children compete.

Orthodontic Assistant, X-ray technician

I work alongside Dr. Lorino at chairside, take X-rays, create models, and fabricate retainers to help keep our patients’ smiles looking as beautiful as possible. I have enjoyed getting to know our patients in the four years I’ve worked here. Everyone is so unique and they all have an interesting story to tell. Dr. Lorino is honest and sincerely cares about his patients. I love working with him and the rest of our team in such a pleasant, stress-free environment.

When I’m not in the office, I love spending time with friends, volunteering for building and teaching projects, and traveling. I’m happiest when I’m with my family or at the beach.

RDA, CDA, X-ray technician

I work alongside Dr. Lorino greeting patients, chair-side assisting, taking x-rays, sterilizing, fabricating Essix retainers, pouring and trimming diagnostic models, and delivering oral health care information. I enjoy seeing the transformation in our patients' smiles. I also enjoy working with the rest of our dental team - they are awesome! I love working with Dr. Lorino because if a patient comes into our office having had a prior consult or dental work from another Dentist, Dr. Lorino never puts down the work or opinion of the other Doctor and this show great integrity. Dr. Lorino is easy going and this makes for a comfortable office and working experience, for his dental team and for his patients.

I am from Southern California and have been living in New Jersey for 5 years with my husband, 2 kids and our dog. I enjoy going to the movies and to concerts. I also enjoy traveling to California and Arizona to visit my family and friends.
