Of course, our office has the latest technology, a convenient location, a clean and comfortable environment, and even great coffee while you wait! But what really sets a great dental practice apart is the people behind it. Every member of our team takes extreme pride in our profession. We take what we do very seriously, and our goal is to deliver high-quality care that lasts, looks amazing and feels good. The entire staff regularly attends conferences and takes continuing education classes geared toward providing you and your family with ever-improving quality of work.
Our office team is here to welcome you, and help you every step of the way, from your first call, to all follow-up and re-care visits. If you have questions about any aspect of your treatment plan, clinical or financial, please don’t hesitate to ask us. We’re prepared to give you answers you can understand.
Most likely, the first member of our team who will be greeting you is the wonderful Maria–our kind and caring, but detail-oriented Front Office Manager. Maria is Registered Dental Assistant (RDA) with over 20 years of experience. She has a deep passion for meeting new people and helping educate patients about their best dental options. She has the ability to crunch numbers in one hand, while simultaneously reviewing a treatment plan and answering detailed billing questions on the phone in a friendly and professional manner with the other.
Our clinical team assists Dr. Gorman by offering chair-side assistance and hygiene care. We are committed to your comfort, and we respect your time. If we can make your dental experience better in any way, let us know. We hope that your first visit will be the beginning of a lasting relationship.
If you haven’t been to a dentist in a while, chances are good that the first visit after your initial complimentary consultation will be a hygiene appointment with Sanda. Sanda believes that providing great dentistry involves truly working with people, and not just treating their teeth. Besides her 15+ years of experience working as a Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH), she has continued to increase her knowledge and skills by becoming Laser Certified in 2006, as well as earning her license as a Registered Dental Hygienist in Alternative Practice (RDHAP) helping provide in-home hygiene services to the developmentally disabled. Sanda also specializes in Myofunctional Therapy, for helping train the orofacial muscles to develop optimally, which facilitates straighter teeth, better breathing, and great health.
Another key player in our office is AJ, a Registered Dental Assistant (RDA). AJ specializes in preparing patients for treatment, taking x-rays, and working with epic precision to assist Dr. Gorman in performing treatments. Her compassionate, competent bedside manner will help even the most antsy patients feel at ease in our office. Her steady hands never slip up, and her sharp eyes ensure that nothing is missed.
Our Chief Dental Assistant, Nancy, has been working alongside Dr. Gorman for over 28 years. Nancy truly cares about getting to know our patients and their families, and most of all, loves seeing the transformation in the lives of patients as they improve their smiles, and overall health! When she’s not busy helping Dr. Gorman provide the pinnacle of dental care, she is making friends with everyone who steps into our office. Nancy has a formidable sense of humor, which is a good thing, because she never would have survived 28 years adjacent to Dr. G without it.
Last but undoubtedly not least, we have the man who pulls it all together, our head honcho, Dr. Martin N. Gorman DDS. A dental health professional with over 38 years of experience, he specializes in Bioesthetic Dentistry, an approach based on decades of intensive study of the optimal natural biologic model. Its focus is on the development of the least-invasive-possible treatments to help less than perfect smiles catch up.
There’s nothing Dr. Gorman dislikes more than “pushy sales people,” so you’ll find none of those here. He also believes that simply managing pain and other symptoms is lazy healthcare. At his office, he treats the root causes of his patients’ issues. We’re not a money-model “drill & fill” office. Marty has the most talented hands and sharpest brain in dentistry. He’s constantly researching the latest ways to provide great care to his patients, and always offers the best and least-invasive treatment option available. Learn more about Dr. Gorman
