Our Dental Team

Racquel, Dental Assistant

Racquel, Dental Assistant

I have been working as a dental assistant in our office for over 25 years. My responsibilities include 4 handed dentistry, taking and pouring models, making bleaching trays and night guards. I also work at the front desk assisting our patients with scheduling and insurance. But more importantly, I greet you with a smile and provide you with the best possible care! I consider our patients family and truly care for each and every one of them!

Loureen, Hygienist
I am the oldest of Five siblings originally from the Philippines.
I moved to NJ at the young age of 12, as a young adult I moved with my family to Las Vegas but in 8 short months, I came back to NJ. I missed my town so much.
I started working as a Dental Assistant and shortly after decided that I wanted to help patients overcome their dental fear by welcoming them into the practice and helping them achieve their Hollywood smile.
I decided to enroll in the Dental Hygiene program at UMDNJ and graduated in 2009.
After years working with great mentors, I have finally found my home at Dental Wellness of Clifton.
