She’s also met another wonderful, caring gentleman, and they enjoy traveling, dining, and entertaining together. Some of her other personal hobbies include gambling in Atlantic City and playing games like mahjong and poker.
Tanya, Front Desk
Tanya is originally from East Brunswick. In her time in the dental field, her favorite part of her job has remained the same: interacting with each patient.

In her free time, she likes spending time with her parents and sister, writing, painting, and keeping saltwater fish tanks.
