Meet Our Team
We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice.
We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
As Dr. Nwokorie’s dental assistant, it is Catalina’s responsibility to listen to our patients’ concerns before their procedure, explain post-op instructions, and tend to anything our patients need in order to have an exceptional dental experience. She finds joy in the relationships she builds with patients and enjoys seeing their reaction when their procedure is done.
Catalina loves spending quality time with her kids and two dogs. She also enjoys traveling and having fun with her family.
Front Office Receptionist
Luz greets and schedules patients on the telephone and in person, verifies insurance and payment plans, and schedules appointments, all so that our patients’ visits are pleasant and seamless. Luz enjoys getting to know our patients and hearing how satisfied they are with the treatment and service they received.
Outside the office, Luz loves spending quality time with her family and friends. She enjoys being outdoors and being in nature.
Our dental hygienist, Jessica, provides our patients with the care, knowledge, and empowerment they need to take ownership of their oral health. She believes in establishing a real relationship with each patient and earning their trust over time so they understand that she truly has their best interests at heart. Like Dr. Nwokorie, Jessica understands that the patient's trust and comfort are the foundations of everything we do here at Cortlandt Family Dental.
When she’s not working, Jessica loves spending time outside with her partner, Alex, and their dog, Bella. They’re even planning a hike of the Appalachian Trail in the fall of 2014! She also enjoys cooking and sewing.
