Meet the Team

Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice. We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you. 


Dental Assistant

I have been a dental assistant for 15 years, and have been a member of Dr. Prete’s team since 2006. As an assistant, I work alongside him with patient care and make sure our office is up-to-date with sterilization techniques. I’ve made some pretty special relationships with our patients and have grown very close with my coworkers over the years. They’re like my family!

I am very people oriented I have been a licensed cosmetologist for 22 years. This is where I met my wonderful husband, Chuck, with whom I share our daughter, Morgan. We also have a 14-year-old Schnauzer named Kori. In my spare time I love going to the beach and gardening with my family.


Registered Dental Hygienist

I earned my Associate of Science degree in Dental Hygiene in 2001 and became a part of A Caring Family Dentist in 2002. I provide preventive and supportive periodontal therapy, as well as cleanings and education regarding home oral care. Our patients and my coworkers make me excited to come to work every day; everyone is easy to get along with and we all enjoy what we do!

I have been married to John for ten years and we share our home with a cat named Hazel and a boxer puppy named Gigi. I love snow skiing and traveling to warm places during the winter months, and I enjoy spending time with my extended family and reading good books.


Front Office Coordinator

I graduated from Dental Assistants of America in 1970 and worked in both dentistry and orthodontics before joining Dr. Prete as his front office coordinator.  My job allows me to work with patients and families on a one-on-one basis, scheduling their appointments and coordinating their billing and insurance needs. It is my goal to help each person have a good dental experience each and every time they come here. This team is like my second family; we are a close group and really care about each other, as well as our patients.

I have been married to my husband, Bill, who is a high school teacher, for 34 years, and we have one daughter who is a pharmacist. We have two cats, Tigger and Desi, and Charlie Buddy, the dog. I am an avid reader and love to garden.
