Dental Team - Gramercy Park, NY
Helping Patients Smile
Ashley, Office Manager
As our office manager, Ashley is the person who greets patients when they first walk through the door and ensures that every aspect of the practice runs smoothly, from scheduling appointments to submitting insurance claims. Originally from the Bronx, she has been working in this field for 15 years and counting. She loves the staff she works with here at the practice and thinks Dr. Newman is absolutely amazing with the patients, helping them feel at home and very relaxed. She believes Gramercy Dental Studio is the perfect fit for her because she truly loves helping people and offering advice to those with dental needs. She’ll always do her best to help them make great decisions moving forward!
When she has free time, spending it with family always comes first for Ashley. She takes good care of her teenager daughter, doing things like cooking, shopping, and plenty of girl talk. She’s also in the process of adopting a dog or cat soon! Her other hobbies include doing hair and nails – she actually has her cosmetology license.
Meliza, Dental Hygienist
Meliza has her Bachelor of Science in Biology and her Associates of Science in Dental Hygiene. Originally from Kew Gardens, she is very proud to be part of such a great team that focuses on what’s best for the patient first. She has a lot of passion for dentistry and is always working hard to anticipating each person’s unique needs!
Outside of work, Meliza spends lots of time salsa dancing with her husband and going for jogs with her precious Beagle.
Natalya, Dental Assistant
Natalya is originally from St. Petersburg, Russia and now resides in Brooklyn. She is currently in school and working towards her Bachelor’s in Biology. Her favorite part about working for Dr. Newman is the team! Everyone is very tightly knit, genuinely enjoys the dental field, and respects each other. She is also proud to represent a practice that’s focused on quality work, not the quantity of patients who come through the door. She loves having the opportunity to provide assistance in various areas and do plenty of hands-on work on a daily basis. Being able to connect with people and walk them through their fear and anxiety is always a wonderful feeling. Her good time management skills and multitasking talent make her a great fit for the position!
Outside of work, Natalya spends her free time doing yoga, watching musicals, and playing the piano.
