JoAnn – Dental Assistant/Front Desk

JoAnne attended the Drake College of Business and Dental Assistant Services at Ocean County College. She has six years of experience and started at Drum Point Implant and Family Dentistry in 2007. She values patient care, comfortable treatments, and above all, ethical practices. She’s amazed by the doctor’s ability to take a personal interest in each patient, and she always strives to create a positive, welcoming atmosphere in which patients can heal. She’d treat you no different if you were a dinner guest in her home!

Heather – Dental Hygienist

After graduating with her degree in applied science from the University of Dentistry of New Jersey, Heather came right to our practice. She’s been with us for six years and couldn’t imagine working anywhere else. Continuing education is a top priority, and she loves keeping up to date with all the latest technological advancements in dentistry. The office, she says, is one of a kind, and the relationships we build surpass that of the normal dental practice. Helping patients feel good about their appearance and their health is tremendously fulfilling for Heather, and she takes great pride in the excellent results she helps the dentists provide.

Christie – Dental Assistant

Warmth and comfort are her top priorities for patients, and she’s glad to work for a practice that agrees with her philosophy for patient-centered care. With her vast experience, beginning right out of high school, Christie can explain any dental procedure, and patients feel confident in her expertise and soothing chairside manner.
