My position as the office manager grants me the pleasure of helping our patients overcome the challenges that sometimes get in the way of achieving and maintaining the highest level of oral health. I started in the dental field when I began working in Dr. Sauchelli’s office in 2012, and in my spare time I am pursuing a degree in biology at the County College of Morris. I have found that my favorite part of my position is the opportunity to help our patients along the road to achieving a beautiful, healthy smile. Whether it is a financial problem or personal tribulation, my ultimate goal is to meet each and every patient's needs.

The most wonderful part of our team is the personal connections that we develop with our patients which we all value so highly. This shared interest in servicing others has made our team so close to one another and in doing so, creates an extraordinary experience for our patients. I could not ask for a better set of co-workers!

As Dr. Sauchelli’s patient coordinator, I’m the first face you see when you enter our office and the first voice you hear when you call our office. I am responsible for keeping all of our patients connected to us.  I remind you about upcoming appointments, assist you in scheduling appointments that coincide with your schedule, and try to make it as easy as possible to keep up with your oral health.  Think of me as your personal dental-health assistant. No matter how large or small your request, I am here to help you with all things dental! 

Although I’ve known Dr. Sauchelli for many years, I’m the newest arrival here in the office. I have a degree in English literature and worked for many years as an editor and writer in medical publishing. Working with Dr. Sauchelli and her team has been a wonderful experience. I admire how they treat all their patients like family and how they address their concerns on a very personal level. It makes our work very fulfilling.

When I’m free, I love to read, practice yoga, watch my 17-year-old son run the mile on the high school track team, and explore New York City with my husband.

I began assisting Dr. Sauchelli in 2015 and immediately felt like I had found a home here at her office. I became interested in a career in dentistry in 2002  when I worked as an office assistant filing patients’ charts and sterilizing instruments. I later progressed into the career of dental assisting. 

As a professional working in the dental field for many years, I can confidently say that Dr. Sauchelli's work ethic and commitment to honesty and empathy is unmatched by any other practice I have ever worked in. Being a part of this team with this shared commitment has been, and continues to be, a truly humbling experience. 

I prepare the treatment rooms, work chairside with Dr. Sauchelli, and really try to make patients feel as comfortable as possible. I maintain a sterile environment for patients, pour models, send out laboratory cases, and follow-up with patients after a procedure. The best thing about my job is interacting with people everyday. I love being a part of a team that can help the most anxious and fearful patients get through their appointments and make them feel good about returning for treatment. I also love learning about new dental technologies, equipment, and procedures.

In my free time, I enjoy meeting new people, babysitting my adorable niece, reading, and cooking healthy recipes at home. I also love walking in Brookdale Park on a beautiful day!

As the “Queen of Hygiene,” my royal duties include dental cleanings, maintaining periodontal health, and oral hygiene instructions. My career as a dental hygienist began in 1982 and I joined our team in 2009. The most rewarding part of being a dental hygienist is seeing my patient's periodontal health improve as they begin to use the techniques I teach them. I truly enjoy working with this group of women because we all share the same philosophy in providing our patient's with the best possible care but when we have some free time we are friends who have a good time!

I am happily the mother of three great kids and a little dog named Dublin. I love to Jazzercize and although the word “jazzercize” will make my coworkers crack up, I know they secretly want to learn my dance routines!

As one of the dental hygienists at Dr. Sauchelli’s office, my responsibilities include cleaning teeth and taking X-rays. I also instruct our patients on home care, place sealants, and measure gum tissue depth. I have been in the dental field since 1993 and have been lucky enough to work at this incredible office since 2008. Dr. Sauchelli makes my workday very pleasant and provides a comfortable environment. She is extremely easy to talk to and willing to answer any question. The girls I work with make for a silly team always having a good laugh and when I am not in the office I love spending time with my twin boys. What I find most rewarding about my job is the feedback I receive from my patients on my thoroughness and the attention I give them.
