Patient Concierge and Scheduling Coordinator
I graduated from New York University Dental School in 1993 with my CDA and RDA license. After working in the healthcare field and at St. Luke’s Hospital as the lead dental assistant for many years, I joined Dr. Cassandra’s team. As one of the first people our patients meet, I always make sure to greet everyone with a smile, check patients in and out with efficiency, and verify dental benefits with accuracy.
I like working with my doctors and team because we share the same goals and values. Everyone is dedicated to providing consistently excellent dental care and customer service.
I was born and raised in NYC, the oldest daughter of five siblings. I have been married for 25 years to Dennis Jenkins. In my leisure time, I enjoy reading, listening to good gospel music, dancing to R&B music tunes, shopping, traveling, playing miniature golf, and most of all attending church on Sundays.
I have worked in all aspects of the dental office since joining the field in 1985, from assisting to the front desk and finally hygiene. My focus is on assessing every patient's gingival health and rendering the correct treatment, and educating patients about their oral health and how it is linked to their systemic health. I enjoy working with each individual patient to achieve a healthy smile, always providing their hygiene treatment with their comfort in mind.
I love working with Dr. Cassandra and our team because we all care about each other and our patients. Everyone in this office is friendly, thoughtful, and hard working.
I have been married for 35 years and am a mother of three grown daughters. We have three pets: a cat and two dogs. I love to travel and craft in my spare time. Taking care of my family and always having a full house is the best!
