Office Front Desk Team
Insurance & Financial Coordinator
Helping you achieve your bright smile goals.
Nancy Alfaro, our Insurance & Financial Coordinator has over 15 years experience in the dental field.
“Basically I check on patients’ dental insurance to see how that fits into a treatment plan. I also do financial plans. I work hard to get insurance companies to pay benefits due our patients. We also educate our patients about their dental plans. I love my job because of the family atmosphere and for the role I play in helping patients get the care they want. I really enjoy the work I do with patients. There is something about being an advocate for a patient. With my years of experience I know the ins and outs of insurance companies. I think a lot of other offices don’t spend the time we do. We spend a lot of time researching for the patient. I think that is one thing that sets us apart.”
A new smile, a restored smile or the dental health your family deserves is an important investment. We try to provide you with the financial information you need to make your goals a reality. When you come in ask about the ways we can help you receive the very best in dentistry. Ask Nancy how you can maximize your dental insurance benefits and make co-payments interest free or with low monthly payments.

New Patient Coordinator
Your advocate for exceptional care
Your first visit with us would usually begin with a brief sit-down with one of our dentists who would listen to your concerns and discuss with you what your goals are, then we will gather the information we need to make an accurate diagnosis. This would include a very thorough exam, and any necessary x-rays. After the dentist has a chance to study your x-rays the findings will be discussed with you at a second visit when you can also get your teeth cleaned if you would like. Immediately following your cleaning you can review the recommendations for restoring and/or enhancing your smile and your financial responsibilities. It is then that you can co-develop the staging of your treatment plan with your dentist based on your goals and desires. The final step is to schedule your first treatment appointment.
Please feel free to call Michelle to set up a confidential consultation – 908-874-4555.
