When you meet Laarni, you will realize that the smile she has on her face means she’s genuinely happy to see you. She will help you maximize your insurance, work with your budget and help you find a convenient appointment time.
Lindsay Calderon, Registered Dental Hygienist
Lindsay is very familiar with our dental office. She has been a patient with us for over fifteen years. She was also Dr. Lacap’s part-time dental assistant for two years. Now she is sitting on the other side of the dental chair as one of our caring hygienist.
Lindsay holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Stony Brook University. She brings with her the experience of knowing how to utilize and incorporate the latest oral care techniques and technology for our hygiene department.
Her friendly and caring personality will make you feel right at home. She is very gentle and thorough. Being a great educator she utilizes many visual aids like the intra-oral camera.
Lisa M. LaFazia, Dental Assistant
Lisa is the newest member of our dental team. She is a people person. This is reflected in her smile and easy going spirit. She is Dr. Tong’s main assistant.
She comes to us with numerous talents. She was a flight attendant for 2 years with Transmeridian Airlines. Before that, she owned her own Tanning and Nail Studio for 7 years.
Being in the service industry has made Lisa invaluable in making the patient comfortable and relaxed during all dental procedures. She has a way of making our patients comfortable and relaxed during treatment - almost as if they were in their own living room watching TV.
Leticia (Letty) Morales, Registered Dental Assistant
If Letty seems more knowledgeable than the average dental assistant, it’s because she is. Letty can look at an x-ray and predict what treatment is needed.
Letty has a way of making our patients comfortable and relaxed during treatment - almost as if they were in their own living room watching TV. She is also great in helping our patients make the right decisions for themselves.
When Letty is not in the office assisting the Doctors (about-the-doctors.html) in their quest for giving every patient that perfect smile, Letty keeps busy with her husband and four children.
