OUR STAFF

first-5HYGIENE

Kerri, Joanne, Meghan, Jean and Annette

Our hygiene team has over 60 years combined experience as Registered Dental Hygienists. They are all very gentle, caring and diligent in their approach, carefully monitoring our patient’s periodontal health. At every hygiene appointment, measurements are taken and compared to previous notes. Each patient is treated individually with a plan developed for his or her specific needs.

Kerri has been with Dr. Kobak since he has been in his private practice for over 21 years and has developed long term relationships with so many of our patients. Joanne has been a vital part of Dr. Berk’s team for over 12 years and joined us when their practice moved in to our office in 2012.  Jean and Meghan had filled in for us over the years, and we are thrilled to have them on our team on a regular basis and are both personable, talented, caring hygienists. Annette joined our team in 2010 after working locally for about 8 years and has been a wonderful addition to our talented hygiene department. They are also trained and certified in the use and administration of local anesthetic and nitrous oxide sedation (laughing gas) for those who may require more than the usual “TLC” all of our patients receive! They all take pride in keeping up with the latest hygiene developments and have attended extensive continuing education to do so.

Nikki, Jackie, Denise and Melissa

Nikki, Jackie, Denise and Melissa have over 40 years combined experience chairside dental assisting. They are terrific at making dental visits as comfortable and relaxing as possible for our patients. Most of the procedures in our office are done “four-handed” with an assistant directly helping the dentists. This allows state of the art dentistry to be done as expeditiously and safely as possible. Our experienced assisting staff also ensures that all OSHA and CDC guidelines for infection control are fulfilled or exceeded. We follow a strict protocol for sterilization of all our equipment and use as many disposables as possible.
