We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice. We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
It’s so much fun to talk and laugh with our patients. The younger ones are always surprising me with what they say, and our adult patients share stories about their lives and interests. We often become friends and I love celebrating with them the day their new smile is complete! I assist Dr. Gorenkoff during various clinical procedures, making sure he has everything he needs, while providing support and encouragement to the patient. I also give care instructions to patients and parents, and answer their questions.
When I go home at night, it’s to my young son, who does very well in school. I’m so very proud of him.
I love helping others and being with people. I’m especially passionate about the importance of teeth and how they impact the quality of our lives. Having healthy, straight teeth means not only a great smile, but the ability to consume proper nutrition, too! My focus here is to make sure everything meets the complete needs and expectations of our patients. I arrange an easy transition to braces by discussing financial obligations and developing payment plans, and handle insurance matters for patients, as well.
I have three grown children who are busy with their careers. When I’m not working, I enjoy yoga, running, and spin classes, and I love eating healthy.
It’s a pleasure to greet patients and families, welcoming them at their visits. I love watching the smiling faces coming through our doors, and hearing laughter as the patients joke with our team members. As I work at the front desk, I get to observe each person’s smile transform as they move through orthodontic treatment, and the amazing changes in their personalities, too! In addition to checking in patients, I also assist patients with matters related to insurance benefits and billing arrangements.
I have two children and four grandchildren: two boys and two girls. Away from our office, I enjoy teaching exercise classes for Southold School and Southold Town.
Assistant Office Manager
Interacting with each of our patients never fails to make me smile. Because orthodontic treatment takes place over about two years, and requires regular visits, we have a chance to really get to know each patient and their family. I love the friendships that develop, and cheering for each patient as they work hard toward their new smile. I greet patients and parents when they arrive, and schedule appointments at times that work for their busy schedules. I also handle financials for the office.
On weekends, I spend a lot of my time with my wonderful grandchildren. I’m also an avid reader and I love to go to the beach.
It’s fun to come to the office each morning, as I know my day will be filled with wonderful conversations with the best people in the world: our patients! I love how each person is excited to be starting treatment, and then watching their excitement grow as their teeth are gently shifted and their new smile is created. I provide assistance to Dr. Gorenkoff while he cares for our patients, always concentrating on the patient’s comfort and telling them what the doctor is doing. It’s fun to work in an office where we create happy smiles!
My home life is family-centered, with my two children and husband. We love spending time together, especially going skiing and on camping trips.
Front Desk Coordinator
I love our patients. Witnessing the changes that happen in each person, as they become increasingly confident in their smile and more outgoing and social, never fails to amaze me. It’s incredible that we’re able to provide this service to such marvelous people! Seeing the finished smiles, and how happy each patient is, has everyone here celebrating with them. I work at the front desk, answering our phones, scheduling patient appointments, and keeping everything organized and neat.
Outside the office, I spend a lot of time volunteering in our community. I love the outdoors, the beach, losing myself in a book, and knitting.
