Sharon - WF office, Dental Hygienist
My name is Sharon Kuchinsky. I have spent my entire life in the beautiful Hudson Valley and look forward to meeting you in our Wappingers Falls office. I graduated from Fairliegh Dickenson University and have been a licensed registered dental hygienist for over 35 years! I love the dental field and feel fortunate to work in an office where everyone respects one another and strives to do their very best. I particularly enjoy meeting patients who have had previous unpleasant dental experiences and changing their feelings toward dentistry! It is very rewarding to help people achieve a healthy mouth and a happy smile. I have been married to a fabulous man since 1976 and we have two grown (handsome!) sons whom we are very proud of.
Andrea - Davis office, Registered Dental Hygienist
Andrea received her degree and training at Broome County Community College in Binghamton, NY and graduated at the top of her class in clinical skills and patient care. She has been practicing in the Hudson Valley for over 25 years. Teaching her patients the importance of proper oral hygiene and understanding that disease in the mouth can directly affect the whole body is her top priority. An educated patient is one that can achieve optimal oral health within a short time. By implementing the "Golden Rule", treating others as you would want yourself to be treated has always been at the forefront of her patient care. It is also so very rewarding to transform a frightened dental patient into one that leaves the appointment smiling and relaxed. Andrea is happily married and has two beautiful children. In her spare time she loves to spend time with them, playing volleyball and reading.
Michelle - Davis and Main St. offices, Dental Hygienist
My name is Michelle Zuckrow. I have been a licensed registered Dental Hygienist since 1989. I graduated from Orange County Community Collage with an associate degree of applied science in dental hygiene. I am happily married with three beautiful children. As a professional I continue to grow providing exceptional care and expertise in many areas. I believe a thorough understanding of ones oral health and treatment options are very important. I enjoy providing dental treatment to children and adults of all ages and strive to make all patients comfortable during their dental visits. Reducing anxiety during dental procedures is very important to me. Many patients are pleased to find that their dental visit can be a pleasant experience. I am proud to mention that I have been working with Drs Gross and Flores since 1989. This has been a very fortunate experience for me personally. Through them I have learned so much about the proper way dentistry should be performed. Not only accurate in diagnosis and proper treatment planning, they are honest, caring and considerate to the the needs of each patient. Their dedication and goals of continued exceptional dentistry and demand for an exceptional staff have been admirable.
Heather - Davis office, Office Manager
My name is Heather Cleary and I'm the office manager for Drs. Gross, Flores and Gatchalian at our Davis Avenue office. I've been involved in the dental business for over 25 years and have always found the best part of my job to be meeting so many nice people and aiding them in their needs as best as I can ! I love helping people and feel a great sense of satisfaction when I see our patients leave with a smile ! At Drs. Gross and Flores we like to think of our patients as extended family and it shows in the quality of care we give. I live in Beacon with my husband, Michael and my three kitties, Sheba, Honeybun and Olive. In my spare time I enjoy the outdoors, helping animals, going to sporting events and watching movies.
