Assistant Office Manager
I love working for an exceptionally talented dentist and with a team that puts patients at the forefront! Whatever a patient needs to feel more comfortable during their visit, we’ll take care of it; all the patient needs to do is ask. I am here to help patients complete their needed dental treatment, offering support and encouragement. When a patient finishes a procedure and is happy with how things went, I’m thrilled!
I’m the proud mother of a special needs child, Christopher. I love that he feels at home at our practice, too! I do my best to promote our office and the care we offer when I’m out with Christopher, at the park and amusement arenas.
I am a former early-education teacher who has a passion for helping others. In my role at Lotus Smiles, I primarily schedule and confirm appointments for Dr. Milman, with some administrative duties thrown in for variety. I truly enjoy helping people and I like being a part of a successful team. Everyone here puts the needs of our patients first, which is very rewarding.
On a personal note, I have been married to my husband Joe for many years, and we have two adult sons, one of whom is married and recently had a baby of his own. I am a very doting first-time grandma for sure!
Registered Dental Hygienist
I love when I’m able to calm a fearful patient, helping them learn this is a safe and nurturing office. When a patient learns that, they become excited about their visits and actively participate in caring for their smile. I clean and save teeth and I love it. While I’m with a patient, I focus on their specific dental concerns. I teach them the best home oral hygiene practices. I also teach about nutrition and developing good habits. When I see a healthy, happy, clean smile at a recall visit, I’m thrilled!
I have been a dental assistant for over 15 years and enjoy every aspect of my job. I assist Dr Milman during procedures and help him with anything he or the patient might need. I love working with our patients. I take pride in knowing that even the most anxious patients feel at ease when they sit in our chair. I love seeing the genuine happiness on the patients face when Dr Milman gives them the smile they have always wanted. I'm proud to be a part of such a great dental team that puts our patients first from the moment they walk through the door.
I love the genuine happiness on patients’ faces when they see how much healthier and attractive their smile is. Dr. Milman is gentle and encourages each patient to take control of their smile’s health. I prepare patients to see the doctor, explaining what will happen and answering questions. Then I work chairside, supporting both our patient and Dr. Milman. I also sterilize instruments, take X-rays, and stock and organize our supplies.
I come from a large family and have four sisters and four brothers. I also have a lot of nieces and nephews. My extended family is important to me and we spend a lot of time together. I enjoy reading, movies, and walks in the park.
I am responsible for all the things—small and large—that go into making the office run smoothly. My background is in computer science and I left my job at Citigroup to work with my husband Dr. Milman in 2007. I wanted to spend more time with him and the kids, and it’s a decision I’ve never regretted. There is nothing more rewarding than helping people get their smile healthy and their confidence back, and I feel so fortunate to do that with such an outstanding group of people. Our first priority is the well-being and comfort of our patients, and our team proves it every day.
I have been married to Dr. Milman for 12 years. We have three wonderful children and a small dog named CoCo. We love spending time with our family and friends in our free time, in addition to supporting numerous different children’s charities.
I love working in a positive and supportive office, where we’ll do everything possible to make our patients smile. Each patient is important to Dr. Milman and our team. We work hard to get to know them on a personal level and build friendships with them. I help patients schedule visits, finding times that work with their busy lives.
I share my life with my son and daughter, as well as my husband and my dog.
