Bria Calderone

Dental Assistant

I was a graduate in 2002 from the Dental Assistant Service School in Farmingdale, NJ. I went on to continue my assistant education to become an RDA, and have been one for over twenty years. Smiles have always been an important factor to me because I’m a very happy person who loves the beach, cooking, traveling and above all spending quality time with my daughter, Arianna, and husband Justin.

After achieving the number one score for my RDA, I knew my future was bright. My patients are a huge priority and I pride myself on being patient and understanding. A big smile always makes my day
