Please call our office today at 845-831-6720 to schedule an appointment with our dentist, Dr. Cruz, and learn more about dental care in Beacon, and the surrounding areas of Garrison, Philipstown and Cold Spring, New York.
I am very excited to be joining the Bright Smile team! Although I am new to the team, with over 20 years of experience, I am no stranger to dentistry. I love being around people and through various roles within the profession, I have developed a passion for dentistry.
Outside of the office I enjoy spending time cheering on my two daughters in all their endeavors along with my husband Matt. I enjoy family time cuddling with our two cats and relaxing in the backyard with our hens roaming about. I love a good game night with my friends, it is always a great time full of laughter.
I have been working in the dental field since 1990. Mostly you will see me at the front desk but also sometimes as an assistant. I am happy to be a part of the Bright Smiles team and enjoy working with Dr. Cruz and my teammates.
I have been married to my husband James for over 30 years and we have 2 grown children. When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my husband and my dog Luna. We enjoy going off-roading in our jeep, spending time outdoors and going to the beach.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I have been a hygienist for almost 20 years at this office. I have spent those years treating the greatest clients I could ever ask for. I am privileged to have the opportunity to continue to provide each client with the ability to have a totally healthy mouth. I am very excited to be a part of the Bright Smiles of Beacon team with Dr. Cruz. It is very gratifying for me to know that we as a team are very passionate about providing our clients with the highest quality of treatment while in a calm and caring atmosphere.
I have been married for just about 20 years as well. I am also the proud mother of three amazing children who bring me joy daily. When I am not in the office, I spend my time either at a dance studio, a ball field or within the comfort of my home. I love spending time with family and friends, being on the beach, and enjoying warm sunny days.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I have been a dental hygienist since 1989 and have been practicing part time in this office since 2006. I received my dental hygiene anesthesia license in 2004, which allows me to administer nitrous oxide and local anesthesia injections. I am very excited to work alongside a great team under the direction of Dr. Cruz. I treat all my clients as if they were my family members and will consider you as such. I take pride in educating my clients on how they can achieve overall health.
I have been married to Patrick for over 20 years, and our daughter will be entering her second year of college. In my spare time, I enjoy watching and playing baseball, especially with my New York Yankee family. In addition, I love to garden and spend time with friends and family.
I have been a dental assistant for over 20 years. I am a people person and love working with and learning about our clients. This profession is so interesting! Each client has a different need, a different story and a different case. The combination of working with such great clients and such great co-workers is very fulfilling.
In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, biking, hiking, entertaining guests, and spending time with my husband and three children.
