Nicole’s journey at NYBraces started when she was 16! Nicole’s hard work has made her our office manager. Not only does she manage the office, she also is our treatment/financial coordinator. Talk about a triple threat!! Nicole graduated from SUNY Old Westbury with a bachelor’s in business administration. When she’s not in the office, you can find her at our nearest taco bell.


Amber

Amber is no stranger to the orthodontic world. Her mother worked here for over 20 years and she now upholds her legacy. She graduated from The University of Brockport with a double Bachelor’s degree in Healthcare Administration and Marketing. She started in our office as our Patient Care Coordinator and recently got her dental assisting certification at NCC. She is definitely the energy of the office! When she’s not at work, you can find her at the beach with her dog Nala.




Dennise

Orthodontic Assistant

Dennise started working for Dr. Park in 2020 and is currently a senior in high school. She is planning to attend Queens College in the fall.

Kayla

Orthodontic Assistant

Kayla is the newest member to join our team. For the past two years, she worked as a patient care coordinator. She is currently in her second year, studying at SUNY Farmingdale to become a dental hygienist.

If you can’t find her here, she is probably in line at the local Starbucks.
