I was born and raised in Woodside, Queens. I am very proud to come from a Colombian family. I have been part of the Professional Dental Associates team for 14 years. My goal is to make sure patients understand any recommended treatment, and plan completion of the treatment through payment plans that meet each patient’s individual needs. I look forward to seeing you in our wonderful, state of the art office.

Born and raised in Astoria, I became a Dental Assistant after graduating from Long Island City High School. I have been a Dental Assistant for five years. I like working in dentistry because I really enjoy working with patients and making them feel as comfortable as possible during their time at the dentist. This passion has led me to continue my education in the dental field. I am studying to become a dental hygienist at Plaza College so that I can offer even more to my patients in the future.

Katherine RDH

I was born and raised in Ecuador. I was always interested in the dental field because some of my family members have fear and dental anxiety. I graduated from New York City College of Technology and became a Registered Dental Hygienist in June 2018. I’m currently a member of the American Dental Hygienists Association. My passion is to provide high quality care, patient education and improve their oral health. It is a pleasure to be part of this great team and work together to achieve each patient’s individual needs at their. It is very rewarding having patients come back to our office because of the excellent service provided. Don’t forget that you are never fully dressed without a smile.
