Head Dental Assistant
I am the head dental assistant at Central Park West Dental. I help provide cosmetic, restorative, and preventive treatment to our patients. I’ve been in the dental field for more than ten years and joined Drs. Shipper, Vogel and Kim’s practice in 2011. What I enjoy most about the dental profession is the satisfaction of seeing the wonderful transformation in our patients’ smiles and self-esteem. As a member of Central Park West Dental’s team, I love that we are always learning about the latest treatments and technologies in order to provide our patients with the best oral care possible.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I am one of the hygienists at Central Park West Dental. I grew up in Maryland, where I attended the University of Maryland, College Park, and received my Bachelor's degree in Biological Sciences. After my undergraduate career, I went on to enhance my knowledge in the sciences at The George Washington University, where I received a graduate certificate in Anatomical and Translational Sciences. After being in the D.C. area for my entire life, I decided I wanted a change of pace and scenery, so I decided to apply to New York University College of Dentistry to complete my degree in Dental Hygiene. I've always been passionate about healthcare, specifically the preventive side of it. As a provider, one of my primary objectives is to educate patients about the oral systemic link, and the bi-directional relationship between oral health and overall health.
Although I've been living in New York City for a little over two years, I still feel like I have so much to see. I try to walk around the city as much as I can to explore different neighborhoods. I love trying new restaurants and different cuisines, as well as cooking at home.
