Jan, 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 early, but never actually used my skills, While speaking with Dr Breen, I found the position had opened up, I eagerly jumped at the opportunity. As time went on I began to familiarize with the reception area, and now find myself running the office.
When not working, I enjoy the outdoors so you will find me walking the beach or woods with my husband. I have 2 grown children that I am very proud of. My daughter Danielle is an X-ray technologist and still continuing her education at Stony Brook University. My son PJ just started college at Suffolk Community and is looking into law enforcement.
