Amina

Lab Technician

I graduated school to be a dental technician in 2016 and joined TriBeCa Dental Associates a year later. In addition to making mouthguards and whitening trays, I am also our Invisalign® coordinator, which allows me to witness some amazing smile transformations! I truly enjoy interacting with people on a daily basis and helping them make lifelong decisions they will feel happy about!

When I’m not at work, I’m probably at a family gathering or wedding, shopping, or spending time with my husband.

Diana

Periodontal Therapist

I worked as a dental assistant for four years prior to earning my dental hygiene degree in 2012. I became a part of the TriBeCa Dental Associates team in 2017. I consider it a privilege to be the source of an inspiriting co-discovery with patients, using the latest technology to not only visually explore their oral cavity, but to also discover oral health is the gateway to overall health. For me, I enjoy knowing that I can be the source of biology-based knowledge that promotes well-being and has the ability to flourish in every experience both personally and professionally.

I have the fortune of having Chino as my four-legged friend, a pug. He has no choice but to come along to my favorite independent bookstores. When I want to take my impulse to learn to a multi- sensory level, I explore the streets of New York. There is something nostalgic about the brownstone neighborhoods in Brooklyn, which I love. Otherwise, I like to surprise myself with a last minute trip to a different part of the world.

Donmarie

Dental Assistant

I am a certified dental assistant, joining the dental field in 2012 and TriBeCa Dental Associates in 2013. They say teamwork makes the dream work, and that’s how we operate here! We’re not just coworkers—we’re more like family. It’s a pleasure to come to work in such a supportive environment.

I am married with two kids and a stepchild. I love dancing and going to parties, and also do group work for high school in the Caribbean.

Dorrie

Periodontal Therapist

My initial education in the dental field began in high school, which led me to get my first dental assisting job in 2006. In 2011, I completed the dental hygiene program from New York University College of Dentistry and completed the Dental Hygiene Baccalaureate program (with Honors) from NYUCD with a concentration in education in 2012. Joining the team in 2019, I am responsible for providing education, diagnostic testing, as well as preventive and therapeutic care for the dental hygiene patients of Tribeca Dental Associates. In dentistry, I have the chance to learn something new every day. The dental field is always evolving with new technology, techniques, and products, and I am passionate about using these to help our patients live happier, healthier lives.

I’m a New York native, born and raised in Staten Island. As a former gymnast and college softball player, I still enjoy group fitness but can never say no to pizza! I’m obsessed with my dog Remy and love a good DIY project!

Ellery

Dental Assistant

A new member of the TriBeCa Dental Associates team, I have five years of experience as an extended functions dental assistant/certified dental assistant. I love taking care of our patients and helping them have beautiful smiles. We also have the best team, full of people who are knowledgeable and excited about dentistry. It’s great to come into work because everyone at the office is so awesome and shares the same goals.

I’m originally from Utah and love camping, hiking, and spending time with my family. My favorite animals are dogs and my favorite color is pink!

Joanna

Dental Therapist

I began my career in dentistry in 2012 as an assistant, working for three years before attending NYU College of Dentistry and receiving my degree as a dental hygienist. It’s been a pleasure to have spent my entire career at TriBeCa Dental Associates. I am a very technical person, so I love working with my hands and solving problems. Of course, creating bonds with my patients based on trust is truly special to me.

My husband and I have been together for 15 years and married for four. We have twin boys who are two years old, Miles and Aiden, as well as a dog named Barley. I enjoy spending time outside, walking, hiking, taking the kids to the park, and creating new recipes in the kitchen.

Katarina

Treatment Coordinator

I’ve been in the dental field for three years and joined TriBeCa Dental Associates in 2019. Every day, I learn more in dentistry through webinars and being alongside experienced dentists who are always willing to teach. They genuinely care about their patients and staff, and are dedicated to creating an environment where everyone feels safe and well taken care of.

During my free time, I love to take dance classes and learn new cooking recipes and techniques.

Kelsey

Periodontal Therapist

After receiving my B.A. in Biology from Mount Saint Mary College, I continued on to receive a degree in dental hygiene at New York University College of Dentistry. My favorite part of my job is getting to meet new people and build relationships with them. I love helping people achieve health and leaving them with a smile. Dr. Hamidi and Dr. Halary are the best as well. They always place their patients’ needs first and are open and honest. The TDA team always has fun together and works hard together. There is never a dull moment in the office!

Dancing is one of my passions and something I did competitively until I was 18. I grew up on Long Island and spend many weekends there hanging out with my family and getting some fresh air. When I'm not at work, I love getting outside and going to the beach or going for a nice hike with my dog Zoey.

Lucy

Administrative

I joined TriBeCa Dental Associates in 2015 in an administrative role, which allows me to do what I love best—work with people! Each person who walks through our doors has a story, and I enjoy hearing each person’s perspective on life. I learn so much from them, as well as from Dr. Hamidi, who is a true professional in all that he does.

My hobbies outside of work include traveling and trying new foods.

Luz

Dental Assistant

I began my career as a dental assistant in 2017 and am currently studying dental hygiene. Until then, I spend my days preparing and organizing tools, assisting the doctors, and providing excellent patient care. I love to learn, whether it is about my patients’ lives or a new technique. I appreciate how knowledgeable our doctors are and how they always put patient care first.

I love coming home to my adorable Chihuahua. My hobby for the time being is homework and classes, but I do find time to walk around the lake at least three times a week.

Meredith  

Practice Management

As our practice manager, I oversee the office, direct financials, and generally make sure that everything runs smoothly from day to day. I have a passion for dentistry and love learning about and implementing new technology into our office. Like our patients, our team is like my family. We have so much respect for each other and enjoy each other’s company, both in and out of the office. Everyone works hard, practices ethical dentistry, and strives to be the best we can possibly be.

I love spending my free time with my boyfriend, friends, and family. I enjoy doing anything that entails being on the water, boating, skiing golfing, and even running marathons!

Miguel

Dental Assistant

I attended Dawn Career Institute in Wilmington, DE, graduating as a dental assistant in 2010. I worked in various dental practices during the next ten years before finding my home here at TriBeCa Dental Associates. Everything I do, from assisting the doctors to helping the rest of our team, is focused on giving our patients a superior dental experience. There is nothing better than seeing the smile on their faces after knowing we have all done our jobs to our upmost ability!

I’m a proud father of four boys. I love the Philadelphia Eagles, watching and playing sports, running, and working out.

Nelly

Administration

I have worked at Tribeca dental Associates for five years, having learned a lot about dentistry and administration in that time. My job primarily entails in assisting patients with insurances and scheduling appointments, but most importantly, I help give patients a pleasant and unique dental experience. My favorite part of my job is seeing patients satisfied and happy for choosing Tribeca Dental Associates as their dental home. Many patients share their experiences at other dental offices and they appreciate the level of care and genuine compassion we have for our patients.

Yulia

Front Desk

I am responsible for greeting and assisting patients the moment they enter our dental office. I also make appointments for patients and maintain their accounts, coordinate the dentists’ schedule, and bill patients and their insurance companies. As someone who enjoys being organized, I love putting together a schedule that works well for both our patients and our team.

In my free time, I love to draw and play sports.
