I am proud that unlike most dental facilities, my office is homey and inviting. I attribute this to my dedicated staff, most of who have been with me for many years. Everyone who works here is friendly and professional.
Our goal is to make you feel pampered right from the start.
Hi, I'm Barbara, Dr. Sinkin's office manager. I enjoy dentistry and have been in the field for many, many years (more than I care to think about!). I believe that you can tell a lot about an office by the length of time employees have been with the doctor; I've been with Dr. Sinkin 12 years! I am here to help and that's what I always try to do. So, if you have any questions regarding your treatment, your insurance or anything else (even which color of tie you should wear to your appointment!), just ASK ME. That's what I am here for. Personal facts: I'm a movie buff, a collector, and love arts & crafts.
After I graduated from dental hygiene school in 1989, my first job was with Dr. Sinkin. So, we have worked together for almost 20 years! We don't compromise a thing when it comes to the quality of work. I am also a licensed acupuncturist. The best part of being both a registered dental hygienist and a licensed acupuncturist is that the stress and anxiety relieving techniques of acupuncture can really help when patients are in the dental chair. And, if you are allergic to Novocain, acupuncture can be instrumental in relieving discomfort. Personal facts: I enjoy sports and am a huge Mets fan!
Hello! I'm Kimberly. I am Dr. Sinkin's Right Hand Assistant. I have been a dental assistant for over 16 years, nine of them with Dr. Sinkin. I feel so blessed to be part of this family and to partake in helping patients in this practice. I am here to hold your hand, to listen and to offer encouragement when needed. I love working with people and assure you that you will be comfortable and well-cared for during your visit. Our goal is that patients leave the office in a "better place" then when they walked in. Personal facts: I am a mother of a toddler and I am a grandmother, too!
Hi! I'm Meryl, one of Dr. Sinkin's wonderful hygienists. Besides cleaning your teeth, I am here to help teach you how to best maintain your teeth and gums. My primary goal is to help you keep a healthy and happy smile. I'm the one to turn to if you have any questions about dental "homecare" (brushing and flossing). Although I have been working in this practice for over six years, my history with the doctor goes way back. Before Dr. Sinkin made his move to Manhattan, we worked together in a Forest Hills dental practice for 11 years! Personal facts: My 11 year old son is an aspiring actor and when I am not running around to auditions, I love to read.
“Hi, I'm Carmen and I have been working with Dr. Sinkin for 5 years. This is my first job after completing my training and also my first job in the U.S. I feel blessed to be part of Dr. Sinkin's second family and also to be part of our wonderful patients' treatment and life. When you work with the best you get the best of everything and our patients feel this indeed before, during and after the procedure. Despite my enormous sensitivity I am strong and always ready!”
I have been a dental hygienist for 20 years and began working with Dr. Sinkin in 1999. Through the years the staff and patients have seen me grow through the stages of my life. First dating, then marriage, and now motherhood! They have been with me every step of the way…just like a family. Walking through the door of Dr. Sinkin's office changed my life in an unbelievable way and I assure you the same will happen to you! Expect genuine warmth along with excellent care in a wonderful environment.
