Treatment Coordinator

I started working for Hills Park Dental in 2012. I actually started as Dr. Breen’s dental assistant. I had become a registered dental assistant years earlier, but never actually used my skills. While speaking with Dr. Breen, I found the position had opened up and I eagerly jumped at the opportunity. As time went on, I became familiar with the reception area, and now find myself running the office.

When not working, I enjoy the outdoors, so you will find me walking at the beach or in the woods with my husband. I have two grown children that I am very proud of. My daughter, Danielle, is an X-ray technologist earning her degree at Stony Brook University. My son, PJ, also went to Stony Brook for his degree and is in law enforcement.


Registered Dental Hygienist

I graduated from SUNY Farmingdale with a degree in dental hygiene in May 2006. My extensive experience in the dental setting started over 30 years ago in my native country, Ecuador. During my years of experience, I have developed ways to help people of all ages and learned how to put anxious patients at ease. I consider myself a gentle, compassionate and supportive bilingual hygienist who considers the importance of the relationship between oral and overall health in all patients.

In my free time, I love to be with my family enjoying simple activities which become treasurable memories. We all love gardening; our backyard is our favorite place at home.


Registered Dental Hygienist

My name is Kim and I am very fortunate to be a dental hygienist here at Hills Park Dental. I started my dental career as a dental assistant at the age of 18 working in a pediatric office. That is when I decided to begin my journey as a dental hygienist due to my love for children and wanting to help people achieve their best smiles. I obtained my dental hygienist degree at SUNY Farmingdale and have been a hygienist now for 24 years. I am extremely grateful and thankful to be part of this amazing dental practice. They not only provide high quality dentistry, but they inspire everyone to learn, grow and be the best they can be. They create smiles not only on the outside but inside as well.

I am a proud mom of two boys that are fully grown and on their way to achieving their own goals and dreams. In my free time, I love to fish and do Pilates.


Dental Assistant

My name is Alisa. I attended Suffolk BOCES dental assisting program which I finished in January 2023. It was during this program that I was lucky enough to complete my internship here at Hills Park Dental. I had such a great time during my internship I jumped at the opportunity to join the team! In my free time, I enjoy traveling, baking, boat rides, going to hockey games (go Islanders!), and spending time with family and friends.


Certified Dental Assistant

When you come to Hills Park Dental, you will see that our team is full of positive energy which helps create a comfortable place for our patients. I love being a dental assistant and being able to improve and maintain someone’s oral health. When I am not at work, I am mostly with my family sharing quality time with them or attending college.


Dental Assistant

After finishing my studies in the Dominican Republic, which is the country where I was born, I came to the United States. I went to Suffolk Community College in May 2016 where I learned the English language. I continued my studies at Suffolk BOCES in January 2020 with the Certified Dental Assistant program. Once I finished my program, I started looking for jobs. Dr. Breen and the Hills Park Dental team gave me the opportunity to belong to this family. I am grateful to be part of this team. I love being able to help others and keep a positive attitude. I am looking forward to attending college and continuing to grow in the dentistry field as a dental hygienist.

I’m proud of so many things in life but being a mom is my favorite.

In my free time I like to spend time with my family, go shopping and read.



My name is Kayla. I am the receptionist. I joined the practice in December 2022. I graduated from Brentwood High School in 2021. When I first started working for this practice, I came here not knowing a thing about dentistry, now I can do my receptionist duties and responsibilities, I am thankful for my colleagues showing me every bit of their knowledge and experiences. When the time is right, I want to apply for college to be a neonatal nurse. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, shopping and going to the casinos.
