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.

Renee Crovello, RDH

Dental Hygienist

Renee's philosophy and emphasis is to provide exceptional preventative care for her patients.  She earned her Associates degree in Dental Hygiene from Brooklyn College  and then received her NY State certification in Dental Hygiene Anesthesia in 2015.

The combination of Renee's upbeat personality and focus on education motivates her to share her knowledge and passion with her patients and provide them with the tools needed to attain the healthiest smile possible!  As an active Miller Place community member, Renee enjoys teaching preventative care to children within her local school district. 

In her free time, Renee enjoys spending time with her two daughters and husband.  She especially loves to cook and bake with her family.
