I recently joined this loving dental team in September 2020 and I am very happy that they have allowed me the opportunity to join them and grow in my dream career.

My beautiful family and I reside in Plainfield, where I was born and raised. My hobby is being a nail technician. I absolutely love doing nails and making look them gorgeous.

Kate

I joined the team in March 2015. I have completed an associate degree in liberal arts and am licensed for dental radiography. I will complete my bachelor’s degree in business administration in the fall of 2020. I love working at Park Avenue Dental because we are a family. We are so close and enjoy working together. We have created such long-lasting relationships with our patients that they are part of our dental family, too! I wake up every morning looking forward to going to work. I enjoy working with insurance companies to provide the best we can for our patients and provide our patients with as much information as I can about their benefit plans.

My mom and I are best friends and enjoy traveling together often. My other two family members are my two adorable puppies, Kingsley and Prince. In my spare time, I enjoy trying new recipes and completing DIY projects around the house. I especially love landscaping projects.

She graduated from Middlesex County College in 2008 with high honors and proceeded to work in the industry. Grateful for an amazing group of coworkers, Maggie makes sure that her patients are welcomed and receive exemplary service. She is passionate about dental hygiene and helping patients. She loves working with adults and children. She uses her interpersonal skills to motivate and instruct patients on methods for preventing oral disease and maintaining good oral health. She performs dental cleanings, x-rays, periodontal screenings and treatment, sealants, fluoride treatments, and oral cancer screenings.

Rodrigo

Registered Dental Assistant

I am an internationally trained dentist and graduated in 2001 from the Colombia School of Dentistry in Bogota, Colombia. I joined Park Avenue Dental in July 2016, and love working with an amazing group of people. Our leader, Dr. Sharma, and her associate, Dr. Gonzalez, are just the best! I work diligently alongside Dr. Sharm and Dr. Gonzalez in every way I can to assist our patients, taking care of each patient kindly and with individual attention to their needs. I enjoy helping others and learning something new each day.

My wife and I have three children, and my hobbies include soccer, chess and following Formula 1® and Daytona 500 racing.

Theresa (“Terry”)

Registered Dental Hygienist

I have been practicing dental hygiene for over 40 years and received my dental hygiene license in 1980. I graduated from Middlesex County College in Edison. I joined Park Avenue Dental in 2002 and I am proud to be a member of our dental family. Dr. Minni Sharma is great to work with and is an awesome mentor whom I have learned so much from. I love the fact that everyone on our team goes above and beyond to make sure each patient has a great dental experience. We are all on the same page regarding dentistry and that all oral health care is an integral part of overall health and well-being.

The No. 1 reason I am passionate about my job is the people! I have really gotten to know our patients and seen their children grow and even have children of their own. It makes me happy to ease the anxiety of someone that is nervous about their appointment and gain their trust. I love educating patients on a wide range of oral health issues, as well as the implementation of effective home care therapies and preventative measures which contribute to their oral health and a confident, warm smile.

I am a member of the American Dental Hygienists’ Association and a member of the Central New Jersey Dental Hygiene Association. I have a passion for learning. I attend various continuing education courses every year in order to keep current with the latest technology, dental equipment, new procedures and products. I went back to school in 2009 to get my local anesthesia license. Having my local anesthesia license allows me to do periodontal scaling (deep cleaning) with our patients’ comfort in mind. Every two years, I renew my healthcare provider CPR certification, and yearly, I take an OSHA infection control course.

I was married to the love of my life, Phil, for 35 years until he passed away in 2017. I was blessed to be a part of this wonderful man’s life for 39 years. We raised two sons whom we love dearly. I have so many treasured memories of our life together. I have fun spending time with my family and friends. I like to work with my hands doing crafts, landscaping and decorating. I take joy in listening to music, going to the beach, bike riding, roller blading, doing crossword puzzles, word games, watching movies and travelling.
