Office Manager/Registered Dental Assistant
Lauren graduated from Mount Saint Mary's College with a BS degree in Biology. She is our office manager as well as a Registered Dental Assistant who loves working with people. Building relationships and educating patients about their smiles are her top priorities. She has been known to stay late after regular hours to ensure a patient's treatment is comfortable and complete. Don't be surprised if you see her assisting the doctor or taking x-rays!
When away from the dental office, Lauren spends time with her two wonderful kids!

Registered Dental Hygienist
Kamilla Gumbatova started her career in dentistry as a Registered Dental Assistant years ago. The more time she spent working with patients, the more passionate she became about the field and the more she wanted to contribute to helping people improve their overall health by learning how to maintain their oral health. The most rewarding thing for her about what she does is building relationships with my patients and knowing that she makes a difference when she hears them express gratitude for taking care of them. Kamilla graduated with honors from the New York University College of Dentistry, where she received extensive training as a Dental Hygienist.
When not practicing Dental Hygiene, Kamilla enjoys spending her time with people she loves doing things like hiking, going to the beach, traveling, cooking, etc. Some of her hobbies include photography, yoga, reading, and oil painting.
