Patty

Office Manager

I have been a part of the dental field for more than 30 years. I handle all initial questions that come in (including on our 24-hour on-call emergency line), keep records, manage advertising, schedule appointments, and just about anything else to make our practice as successful as possible. I pride myself on running an efficient office, as your time is just as valuable as ours. I love everything about my job, especially knowing that I get to make a positive difference in our patients’ lives by helping them achieve a beautiful, healthy smile. I have a great team that works hard. We love to smile a LOT and have fun!

I am a retired pyro-technician (spending eight years with Bay Fireworks) and bring that spark with me wherever I go! I enjoy playing computer games and Band hero, which helps me maintain my forever-young attitude!

 

Patreece

Dental Assistant

I assist Dr. Arbitman with all things involving our patients’ treatment, from the moment the first X-rays are taken to the day the braces are removed. My favorite part of my job is making sure each patient has a positive and enjoyable experience. When the patients are nervous, it's always a pleasure to see them end their appointments with clean, happy smiles on their faces. Everyone in this office gets along very well; we're like a family!

I have two kids, an eight-year-old boy and an 11-month-old girl. When we have time we enjoy traveling and experiencing other cultures.

 

Melinda

Patient Coordinator

As a treatment coordinator, I greet and welcome all new patient and their families into the office. I discuss their financial contract including dental insurance, out-of-pocket expenses, and payment plans. My favorite part of the job is interacting with patients and their families and helping them achieve the smile they want and deserve! My coworkers and I take pride in our work and come together to form a successful team. I am truly honored to be part of an amazing team!

I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY and moved to Queens in 2001. I have a wonderful partner of 13 years, Hugo. I also have a 16-year-old son, Michael, my pride and joy. On my free time I love to be with my family and my pets! I have a French bulldog named King and an African Grey named Paulie. My hobbies are collecting makeup, dancing, fishing, reading, and listening to music. I also enjoy going to museums, zoos, aquariums, camping, water rafting, and of course, Disney!
