Meet The Team


Practice Administrator

The first smile our patients see when they walk through the front door belongs to Nesrine.  As our practice administrator, Nesrine enjoys helping our patients feel that they have chosen the perfect place for their dental care. 

Nesrine will be happy to help you plan your dental needs by scheduling appointments, making financial arrangements, and processing insurance.

In her free time, Nesrine enjoys spending time with her daughter, having fun outdoors at the beach or local parks!

Cheryl Senese, RDH

Dental Hygienist

Dental Hygiene has been Cheryl's passion as well as her profession for many years. She earned her Dental Hygiene degree from SUNY Farmingdale in 1973 and achieved NY State certification in Dental Hygiene Anesthesia in 2004 from SUNY Stony Brook. This gives patients more options for comfort during hygiene procedures.

Educating & changing the destiny of many patients’ mouths is extremely fulfilling to Cheryl. Her approach in addressing many of these dental health issues is to offer simple and alternative ways for patients to care for their mouths. Understanding their personality, dexterity, and the benefits as well as adverse reactions to ingredients enables her to put an effective home care program in place.

Cheryl is not all about Dental Hygiene. Holistic and natural care for 4 legged canines peaks her interest as well. Seeing animals respond to non-invasive & natural therapies brings joy to her life.


Dental Assistant

Marilyn has been a dental assistant for over 25 years. After taking time off to be a stay at home mom to her two sons, she returned to dentistry.  Her calm, kind, and understanding demeanor helps patients, adults and children, feel comfortable every visit. As well, she is bilingual and always happy to help translate for our patients that are most comfortable communicating in Spanish.

In her spare time, Marilyn likes to meet her friends for lunch and of course, go shopping!


Dental Assistant

We are thrilled to have welcomed Dana as the newest member of our team.  She received her Dental Assistant Certification and came to us with several years of experience in the dental field.  She is extremely knowledgeable in the digital dental scanning techniques that we have added to our practice.  Her willingness to share her skills has been invaluable.

In her free time, Dana is interested in personal fitness and nutrition.  She also enjoys spending time with her family and laughing at her pets’ antics.


Maureen has had her hands in dentistry for 40 years. She graduated from Suffolk County Community College Dental Assistant Program with an A.S. degree in 1972. Maureen has been a vital part of our team since 1998. She grew up on Long Island and lives in Port Jefferson.

Maureen enjoys the dental field tremendously. She loves learning while assisting and helping patients reach their dental treatment goals. Her warm and comforting personality enables patients to relax and enjoy their dental experience. She is always eager to provide a smile and a reassuring word…or two!
