Office Manager Melodee
Melodee has worked with Dr Minasian for 30 years, first as a dental assistant and the last 17 years as the office manager and patient coordinator. Melodee is also the spouse of Dr Minasian which is a real asset to the practice when problems arise or there is a communication issue. Melodee makes sure the office runs smoothly by delegating tasks to the appropriate team member. Answering patient insurance and appointment questions is her specialty, as well as insuring financial flow.
Kristy has been a member of our team for 14 years. Kristy has always been the assistant that knows what the Dr needs, has it all set up and ready before the patient even arrives. She is the liaison between patient, Dr. and the front office. Her duties include: explaining to the patient in detail what the treatment will be the day of their visit. She also has them sign a form of consent stating the same, as well as the cost of the procedure. She makes a point of making sure the patient is comfortable and informed. She is a valuable member of our team.
ps. Because Kristy lives the closest to the office, she has also been known to make the trek to the office during a snow storm to call and inform patients that we are closed due to weather conditions. She goes above and beyond. Brianna
Brianna is the newest member of our team but is fitting in very nicely. She is prompt, pleasant, has an attention to detail and is eager to learn. The patients love her as she has a knack for making them feel comfortable and well taken care of. We hope that Brianna will be with us for a very long time.
Our hygienist, Jessica has been with our practice for many years. Jessica first started out helping in the front office after school while still in middle school. From there she progressed to a chair side dental assistant while working on her education, attending NYU for dental hygiene. For seven years she has been the head of our hygiene department. She is also the daughter of Dr Minasian and his office manager, Melodee Minasian. Patients love her thorough but gentle touch.
