Carli

Registered Dental Assistant/Dental Radiologist

"I assist Dr. Roberto in procedures and I love my job... especially the artistic aspect of orthodontics - from the beginning of treatment, through the entire process, and then the beautiful end result. Seeing a patient's big smile after treatment makes it all worth it. I also appreciate working with my team because they have supported and inspired me as a dental assistant.  

I am a self-taught artist and a full-time student pursuing my career of becoming an orthodontist."

"I work as our new patient treatment coordinator and assist Dr. Roberto chairside with our patients’ treatments. I have been in the orthodontic field for many years and feel very fortunate to be a part of the team at Rockaway Orthodontics. Everyone here is patient, gentle, and excited to help our patients smile.

I am married with two children. In my free time, I love to garden and train my dogs."

Lea

Registered Dental Assistant/Dental Radiologist

"I started my dental career in 1985, right out of high school. I worked in general dentistry until I began my orthodontic career in 2000. My job as an RDA is very rewarding.There are no words to express the happiness that we all share, creating beautiful smiles. It is a blessing to work with wonderful co-workers as one happy team.

I am a mother of 3 great children and a grandmother (Memee) to an adorable grandson. I have volunteered as an EMT on a first aid squad and I am an active member of my town’s fire department auxiliary."

Meredith

Practice Manager/Dental Radiologist

"I joined Dr. Roberto when she opened Rockaway Orthodontics in 2012. I ensure the efficient running of our practice by scheduling appointments, coordinating treatments, billing and processing insurances, handling advertising, and serving as a liaison to other dental professionals in our community. My greatest goal is to make patients and their parents feel excited about treatment and what their end results will be.

I have two children ages 15 and 10. I am always on a soccer or baseball field with my kids, sometimes with our Boston Terrier in tow. When I get the chance, I love to read and travel."

Registered Dental Assistant/Dental Radiologist

"I began my career in dentistry in 1994 and became an RDA in 1997. I joined Dr. Roberto in 2004 and we have worked side by side ever since.  I strive to provide our patients with the best care and information they need to ensure successful treatment outcomes.  I enjoy getting to know our patients on a personal level and seeing their beautiful smiles whewn their braces finally come off."
