Get to Know the Smiling Faces of our Practice
Madina Sattarova – Dental Hygienist
Madina came to our practice after receiving her education at New York City College of Technology. As a Dawson Academy trained Dental Hygienist, she is here to provide education and awareness for patients as she performs their hygiene treatment. She loves seeing the improvements and results of proper dental care in her patients. After having several dental issues as a child, including issues with grinding and needing root canal therapy, she developed a passion for helping others to prevent these dental-related issues through proper guidance and education. Madina understands and actively practices complete care and a preventive approach to dentistry.
Outside of work, Madina loves spending time with family and friends, including her mom and her son. She also is a prolific reader, and loves listening to music.
Nimmi – Dental Assistant
Nimmi received her training at the Dental College of India before coming over to the US. She is here to assist Dr. Patel with all procedures, as well as set up of the operatory, taking patient x-rays, and the sterilization of all equipment. She loves being able to create a relationship with the patients where she can provide physical and emotional support while they’re achieving their beautiful smiles.
Outside of work, Nimmi loves gardening, baking, and spending time with family and friends. She’s also taking continuing education courses and seeking to obtain her RDA license. Nimmi provides empathy to all of our patients ensuring their comfort at all times. She also has a passion for learning so she can continue to provide patients with the best, most up-to-date care possible.
Nidhi – Billing Coordinator
Nidhi will be graduating from Rutgers University in May of 2022 and then immediately jumping into dental school in July. Her main responsibilities include billing questions, insurance verifications, and patient scheduling. She feels that she was meant to go into the field of dentistry after seeing some close family members suffer from dental related issues. She wants to spread awareness so that people can avoid unnecessary pain and, at the same time, improve their oral and overall health. She loves being able to interact with so many people on a daily basis, knowing that the work that we do in our office helps patients to walk out with happy faces.
Outside of work, when she’s not studying, Nidhi loves spending time with family and friends and trying out new restaurants. Her favorites (for this minute) are Phattra for Thai food and Nomad’s Pizza. She also loves to watch movies and bake desserts. In the summer months, she loves going on hikes and doing water adventures.
Milly – Front Desk Administrator
Milly has been working in the field of dentistry for over 30 years. She wears many hats around our office, from scheduling patients to dealing with our vast inventory of equipment and supplies. She loves seeing patients leave our office with a beautiful smile on their face. She also loves the sense of calm that everyone experiences in our office, as Dr. Patel and the team as a whole make people feel at ease and welcomed.
Outside of work, Milly has recently discovered a love of photography. She’s been spending a lot of time discovering the beauty in the simple things in life, especially through the lens of a camera. She also enjoys spending time with her family and especially taking care of her first grandson.
