Jayne – Practice Administrator
I’m still as passionate about being in the dental field as I was 26 years ago when I first entered the profession as a dental assistant. In 2014, I joined Dr. Sherif Gabr and his team. It has truly been amazing. The level of experience and knowledge shared by his entire team shows how dedicated Dr. Sherif Gabr is in providing excellent dentistry to his patients. Since being in the dental field I have worn many hats, including dental assistant, treatment coordinator, and insurance specialist – working with both medical and dental insurances. My background includes certifications in CDA, CDPMA, CPR and First Aid, HIPAA, and OSHA. I am a member if the American Association of Dental Office Managers and the American Dental Coders Association. I feel lucky to be able to go to work every day and to do what I love.
I have been laughing with my husband for over 20 years. We have a blast with our 2 sons… there is never a dull moment in our house, and when the opportunity arises, I enjoy relaxing with a good book, traveling, and cooking. I love to see people smile, so it’s no surprise that I would find my career in dentistry…. Keep smiling!
Debbie – Patient Coordinator
In 2014 I was honored to join Dr. Sherif Gabr’s practice. I have over 12 years of experience in the dental field. I am certified in CPR, First Aid, and AED. I really enjoy what I do, and I find taking care of our patients so rewarding. As patient coordinator, it is my responsibility to greet patients when they enter and leave the office, schedule appointments and keep the days running smooth. I enjoy meeting new people and creating new relationships. Please stop at the front desk and say hello! I will always greet you with a warm welcome and a smile!
In my free time I enjoy participating in charitable activities, Zumba, cooking, watching movies, and spending time with my family and friends.
Pam – Clinical Dental Assistant
My name is Pam and I have been a dental assistant for over 20 years. I am certified in CPR, First Aid, AED, and Radiology. I love working with all of our patients. I want our patients to feel as comfortable as possible while they are here. My role is to assist Dr. Sherif Gabr with your treatment and to ensure that your visit runs smoothly. I will take the time to explain each procedure as treatment progresses so that patients have a full understanding of their dental care. The best part of my job is helping patients obtain their perfect smiles and a healthy mouth. I could not imagine a better place to work.
I am an avid gardener, and I love crafting, reading, and learning new things. Above all, my family keeps me very busy!
Kinga – Dental Hygienist
Hello! My name Kinga. I have had the privilege of being with Dr. Sherif Gabr’s practice since 2013. My mission is to see to it that the health of your gums and any tissue that supports the health of your teeth is in tip-top shape. I will discuss your specific needs, evaluate your mouth for any abnormalities, examine your gums, teeth, and related soft tissue for any irregularities, and recommend a specific course of treatment for your oral health. The most rewarding part of my job is to help people and to give them confidence in their smile!
I graduated from the University of New Haven in 2010 with a degree in dental hygiene.
My certifications include: American Heart Association certified CPR provider, First aid and AED; Local Anesthesia certified (in order to provide an extra level of comfort for our patients.)
I enjoy extreme sports, which include skydiving, rock climbing, whitewater rafting, and Tough Mudder/Spartan races. I also love to travel and explore!
