Jenn – Registered Dental Assistant, CDA

Hello, I’m Jenn. I’ve been a dental assistant since 2010 and have a New Jersey Dental Radiology License and Certified Dental Assistant license (CDA). Over the years I’ve been able to help people with their implants, fillings, crowns, cone scans, and wisdom teeth. I also manage the lab work and supplies at Mady Dental. Currently, I’m working on my Registered Dental Assistant license (RDA).

I was born and raised in Fairlawn, NJ and now live in Bogota. In my spare time, I love to spend time with my friends and family and I also love travelling.

What I love about Mady Dental is guiding people through the entire process and helping them to achieve overall health from start to finish.

Andrea – Dental Assistant

It’s a great pleasure to be a team member at Mady Dental. My team members are very warm, friendly, and knowledgeable. They make coming to work a lot of fun. I have a dental X-ray license and have been working as a dental assistant for over 22 years. I started out in oral surgery, and worked with many general/cosmetic dentists throughout the years.

I have a passion for dentistry because I love working with people. I have compassion for those that have dental anxiety/fear, and genuinely enjoy guiding them through their appointments with ease and understanding. Watching someone that was so unhappy with their smile look in the mirror after we complete a cosmetic case is priceless.  

I’m a proud Aunt that loves to spend time with my niece and nephew. I am blessed to have a very close family. I love animals, especially my rescue dog Milo that keeps my hands full. I enjoy cooking, dining out with friends, and traveling to warm places.

Darya – Registered Dental Assistant

Hi, my name is Darya and I’m originally from Ukraine; I speak Ukrainian, Russian, and English. I have a New Jersey Radiology license, Certified Dental Assistant (CDA) license, and Registered Dental Assistant (RDA) license. I am continuously furthering my education and keeping my license up-to-date and have taken many courses, including courses in implants and photography, to name a few.

I have travelled all over the US – Florida, California, Texas, Alaska – and there are only five states or so I have not been to! I have been living in New Jersey for the last five years. Other than traveling I enjoy reading science fiction books and spending time with friends.

I enjoy working at Mady Dental because for the first time I truly enjoy what I’m doing and I feel like I’m making a difference. I also like that we are constantly evolving within the field of dentistry as a team, and I really like our crew!

Ambar – Dental Assistant

I was born in the Dominican Republic and came to the U.S.A. when I was eight years old. I am currently living in Passaic.

I love working at Mady Dental because we have a great team and our patients are awesome. I also love working here because I am learning a lot and we use the latest technology. I chose to become a Dental Assistant because it offers many opportunities to work with people. I love cosmetic dentistry the most because it improves the patient’s appearance and self-confidence; I find it very rewarding.

I love to go out to restaurants and enjoy trying different foods. In my free time I enjoy going to the spa. I come from a large family. I am the oldest of my three other siblings, and we love spending time together. We celebrate all the holidays together and love to cook.

Patty – Recall Coordinator

My mother migrated to the United States forty-nine years ago from Ecuador. She rented an apartment in New York. I was born and raised with my four older siblings in Chelsea, which is located in Manhattan. I graduated from N.Y.U.’s Dental Assistant Program in 2000. I worked as an assistant for many years. I became an office manager, dealing with treatment plans, insurance and patient care.

I have always enjoyed helping people and working in a dental office gives me the satisfaction of not only helping people but also seeing a beautiful smile. I like Mady Dental because they have the complete package. Not only are the staff members awesome, the doctor also has great knowledge in dentistry. I like the fact that Dr. Mady cares about his patients, in educating them and giving them the best services ever.
