Hello, my name is Dana. I began working as a dental assistant for Dr. Pertofsky at the age of 16 without knowing what my future would bring. I continued working for Dr. Narang and grew much more interest in the field. After getting my associates degree at RCC I counited on to the Dental Hygiene program at BCC. I received my dental hygiene license in 2016 with continuing education courses under my belt.
The thing I love most about working in the dental field is bringing smiles to patients faces and reducing the fear of coming to the dental office. I strive to make everyone's dental experience comfortable, educational and prevent the possibilities of oral and system problems.
Outside of the dental office I consider myself artistic and love to paint and draw. Working in this office never feels like a day of work surrounded by friends and family doing what we love to do. Never fear your dental team.
Registered Dental Hygienist
Providing friendly, compassionate dental hygiene care is my top priority when treating patients. I strive to listen to my patients’ concerns and address their needs so they have a positive dental experience. In an effort to increase my patients’ comfort and help to decrease their dental anxiety, I became certified to administer local anesthesia and nitrous oxide analgesia. I am an avid believer in continuing education to keep current with the ever improving dental technologies. Dental hygiene was never just a career for me, but a passion. I was honored to share that passion with my students, as an adjunct Clinical Instructor at Orange County Community College (now SUNY Orange). Throughout my career I have always sought to improve my skills by working in practices that specialize in Periodontics, Prosthodontics and Implant Dentistry, as well as General and Cosmetic dental offices. I find it very rewarding to help enhance my patients’ understanding of the dental hygiene care they need to help them prevent oral and systemic diseases. My greatest joy has always been working together, with the other team members, to help our patients achieve a healthy, beautiful smile!
I earned my Associate of Applied Science Degree, in Dental Hygiene, from Orange County Community College and later, continued my education at Fairleigh Dickinson University where I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband, children and grandchildren traveling, swimming, biking, hiking and kayaking.
