Meet the Team

Addie

Assistant and Lab Tech

I am a people-person, so I love that my work allows me to meet so many wonderful people. We become friends while they achieve their new smile! In addition to offering patient care and education, I also work in our onsite lab, making retainers. I’m proud of my education and certifications: I’m a Certified and Registered Dental Assistant with Expanded Functions and X-ray Certified, too.

I’ve been part of Bogdan Orthodontics since 1999 and love the family atmosphere and laughter.

Outside the office, I love watching cooking shows, visiting family in Puerto Rico, and time with my niece who is named after me. I also love the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Yankees!


Angie

Orthodontic Assistant

I enjoy working with all of our patients but especially the kids: it’s exciting to watch them grow up into young adults, with beautiful smiles that fill them with confidence! I work chairside with the doctors during procedures, helping them and our patient. I also teach patients about home care and take impressions, photos, and X-rays.

I’ve worked in the field since 2011 and found my professional family here in 2013. I love how we get along so well and keep our patients smiling!

When not working, I love spending time with my three children (twins and a young daughter). I like to work out, do Zumba, and travel. I also enjoy attending my daughters’ cheer competitions and my son’s baseball games.


Jeannette

Treatment Coordinator

I like meeting new people, welcoming them to Bogdan Orthodontics, and helping them understand their treatment. It’s fun to get to know a person as they’re starting care and then see them change as they achieve their new smile! I oversee all new patients, from the first call to the day they start treatment. I don’t see our practice as my job: this is my home away from home!

After staring in the field in 1990, I joined the team in 2005 and can’t imagine a more perfect fit.

My family is my life. I am the mother of four: two biological daughters and two adopted sons, as well as three beautiful granddaughters. I love to travel to any place with beaches and enjoy gardening, too.


Jemila

Front Desk Associate

I’m a newcomer to our office and the orthodontic field, but I know this is the right place for me! The doctors and my coworkers make sure every patient has positive visits, any issues are immediately resolved, and that everyone is kept smiling. I work at our front desk, welcoming and checking in patients, setting appointments, and opening/closing out the day. I’m here to help, along with the rest of the team, and am always happy to do so!

Originally from London, I try to visit “home” as often as possible. I have a young son who I enjoy time with, whether we’re going to Liberty Science Center, visiting lakes and beaches in the summer, or visiting our family in upstate New York.


Jessica

Orthodontic Assistant

I love watching people build their confidence and seeing how they’re finally able to smile with no hesitation! Showing a patient before and after photos, and watching their reaction at what they’ve achieved, is the best experience! I handle a variety of tasks as I’m trained for both the front and back office. I take care of marketing and inventory and offer chairside assistance during procedures.

I joined the Bogdan Orthodontics family in 2005 and love how our patients are part of our family!

During my time off, I like going to concerts and sporting events, taking road trips, and time with my family and dog. My favorite teams are the NY Giants, NY Yankees, and NJ Devils. I enjoy almost all types of music and love online shopping, too.


Kim

Orthodontic Assistant

I love how every day is different and how each patient grows and changes as they move through treatment. It’s a great feeling to watch someone gain confidence and start to love their smile! I offer chairside assistance, helping the doctors during various procedures. My focus is always on our patient: I want them to be informed, happy, and comfortable at each visit!

I’ve been part of the Bogdan Orthodontics family since 1999, hold an X-ray license, and am a Certified Orthodontic Assistant and Registered Dental Assistant.

Outside work, I love time with my spouse and my daughter, Kayla. We enjoy shopping, get-away trips whenever we can, and I like going to the gym, as well.


Melinda

Sterilizer

I like meeting and talking with our patients and their families. It’s fun to hear about their lives and interests: I’m always learning something! While I’m the Sterilizer for the office, which means I sterilize our instruments and equipment, I also handle some inventory and ordering and assist our assistants, too.

I’ve been part of the Bogdan Orthodontics family since 2015 and have never had a job I enjoyed as much as this one! Everyone is so kind and helpful and we help people love their smiles!

In my spare time, I like being with my friends, family, and fiancé. I love meeting new people and adore shopping!


Subrina

Orthodontic Assistant

I like getting to know patients on a personal basis. It’s rewarding to be part of helping people get the smile they’ve always wanted and to see how happy they are with all they accomplish! I work chairside, supporting our patient and assisting the doctors with procedures like changing wires and removing braces.

I’m new to the practice, having joined in 2016, and to orthodontics, too, but know I’m going to be here for a long time: I can’t imagine a happier, more wonderful place!

When not working, I love to go bowling and spend time with my boyfriend and family. I also enjoy shopping, for myself and others, and can be a homebody who’s happy staying in and watching a good movie.


Yesenia

Front Desk Associate

I love seeing the wonderful smiles on patients’ faces. Each person is so excited to be getting the smile of their dreams and that excitement is contagious! I work at the front desk, where I greet patients with a warm smile: I’m genuinely glad to see them! My background is in customer service and I enjoy the health sciences, so working at our office is the perfect fit for me.

I’m glad to have joined the team in 2016 and look forward to being part of our orthodontic family for years to come.

My time off is often spent with my family. I’m the proud mother of six and grandmother of three. In addition to being with loved ones, I like shopping and going to the movies.
