Amanda - Office Manager/Treatment Coordinator (est. 2006)

I have been working in the dental field for about 20 years, holding the role of Office Manager and Treatment Coordinator at Happy Tooth since 2008. I am grateful to have such a wonderful place to work. We have dentists that truly care about the health and overall well-being of our patients, as well as their team members. As manager, I strive to perfect the office systems and protocols with my teammates to better serve our patients. As treatment coordinator, I help utilize insurance benefits to the best of my ability. It is my goal that our patients feel comfortable and experience the best standard of care. When not at Happy Tooth, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children, as well as cooking, exercising and binge watching Netflix. 

Sarai - Insurance Coordinator (est. 2007)

I have been a proud member of the Happy Tooth Family since 2007. Dr Augustyn and Dr Singh are one in a million, they are both very generous and thoughtful to our patients and to the team. They treat every patient with care and understanding as if they are friends.  These two are the ultimate duo! I can bet there is no other dentist that work this well together and are as amazing as them.

I think back and I’m so glad I accepted the simple reception job of checking in patients all while working at a grocery store basically full time. I started part time at Happy Tooth with no experience in the dentistry field but after a month or so became full time and its the best decision I made as a young girl. Both Doctors, and even some of the team, have seen me grow from a 19-year-old girl to a a soon to be mom (August 2020) and I’m forever grateful for everything they have done for me... and it’s a lot!

Coming to Happy Tooth is not work I enjoy being here and spending time with the team (even outside of Happy Tooth), having lunch together, cracking jokes, talking about our weekends and even pranking each other.  What I love most, other than just our team, is the professional relationship I have made with long time patients, and the new patients being established with us; especially those patients that remember my name, it always puts a smile on my face. Making our patients happy is what makes me happy.

Happy Tooth is Family to me and love being here, how many people can really say that about where they work? Not many! I look forward to continue to grow and be a part of Happy Tooth for years to come!

Stephanie - Patient Service Representative (est. 2012)

I can’t believe how fast time flies! I have been on this journey with Happy Tooth since the spring of 2012. During my time here I have seen HT grow and develop in unimaginable ways. Our office space has grown in size, our team has grown storonger, we have had the opportunity to meet new patines, and build new relationships and even celebrate our own personal growth. Happy Tooth has challenged me, has pried me out of my shell and has opened up my eyes to new possibilities. I learned to have a little more patience and to put needs of others before myself. I learned how important laughter is in the workplace, I have made some lifelong friends and I hav found my place of acceptance. Happy Tooth is more than my place of work, it is my second home. Drs. Augustyn and Singh are two f the most generous, nurturing people I have ever known. They have a way of making everyone feel like family and they take apprised in their case for their patients and their practice. I have grown to love everything this place has to offer and I am so grateful that I get to be part of Drs. Augustyn and Singh’s dream.

Gabriela - Patient Service Representative (est. 2009) 

I have been working for Happy Tooth since 2009. It has truly been a blessing to have found this place. The doctors are amazing. I love how they treat their patients equally. I’ve worked for other dental offices where patients are treated according to the insurance they have; this doesn’t happen here.The whole team is great. I look forward each morning to coming into work because of them.

Yadira - Office Assistant (est. 2017) 

I was given the opportunity and have been blessed to work at Happy Tooth by Dr. Augustin in 2017.  Since I joined this wonderful office, I have learned and grew so much and have created many great memories with everyone (staff and patients).  Everyone in the staff es very professional and dedicated.  We have a friendly,  humble and professional team, that provide service to so many great patients.  Being part of this team and provide service to all of you, gives me the pleasure and desire to get up every morning and come to work.  At Happy Tooth, we feel and treat everyone like a family. Everyone is always very supportive of our duties and responsibilities in and out the office.  I could not ask for a better place to work and at the same time gain professional experience while having fun doing it.

 

Clinical Team Members

 

Vikky - Registered Dental Hygienist (est. 2015) 

I love Dentistry because I have always had an obsession with teeth. I am a people person and love connecting with, and helping people on a personal level. Dentistry just makes sense. What I love best about Happy Tooth is the way a positive experience in our dental office can change someone’s life from dental anxiety to confidence in their smile. I love the interaction with people and the rewarding feeling I have when someone comes to understand the benefit of their oral health. Bringing a person through treatment to improve the health of their gums is such a great feeling!

Gracy -  Supervisor and Clinical Assistant (est. 2008)

I love dentistry because there are so many ways that it has an affect on someone’s life. I have seen firsthand someone’s confidence improve after removing decay/stain from their smile. A child that can now eat comfortably because the decay has been removed from their teeth. Those experiences  may both seem far and few but on a day to day basis I enjoy seeing people smile and overcoming fears of dentistry they may have. Gaining the trust of a child who at first may be hesitant to have their teeth examined. I can honestly say that we really do take the time to prepare for you as patients. We go over morning huddles and discuss things that may interfere with the schedule; check to see if we can find a way to extend a patients appointment to better accommodate you. We do all we can to make sure you are seen on time and leave when you are scheduled to leave.  I’ve worked at happy tooth for almost 12 years now and they really go beyond employers and staff. Everyone here has a genuine care for the other person beyond your general concerns for work. We try our best to enjoy our time here at work and get closer as a team. I hope that is something you can see when you come for your appointment.

Yesica- Clinical Assistant (est. 2018) 

I started working with Happy Tooth Family in 2018. When I first started I had no experience and learned everything at the job with the help of my fellow co workers and not to mention the doctors. I learned there all I know today. The thing I love most about my job is having the ability to ease our patientss fears about being in a dental chair. I also love expressing compassion and helping patients develop confidence and being fear free in the dental chair !  I am always leaving work with the feeling of joy in my heart for helping others overcome their fears of coming to the dentist.

Ebony- Clinical Assistant (est. 2018) 

 

Lawrence- Clinical Assistant (est. 2019)

I’ve been working at Happy tooth since 2019. I enjoy my job because it’s a challenging work environment, I learn something new everyday about dentistry & ways that I can improve. In addition working with patients, building a strong relationship & creating a welcoming environment where they feel comfortable with us so that we can provide a quality experience. I’m someone that is passionate about health and fitness. I enjoy finding ways to improve myself physically and mentally, there’s always room for growth. I also dedicate myself to boxing and mixed martial arts training. Learning new disciplines definitely allows me to keep my mind and body focused.

Hi my name is Gianna and I am a dental assistant at Happy Tooth. I graduated from Monmouth College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biopsychology in 2018 & received certification for Dental Assisting from Triton College in 2019. I started working at Happy Tooth while finishing my program in 2019. Both Dr’s Augustyn and Singh, as well as the team, welcomed me with open arms and I have felt at home ever since! The Happy Tooth team feels like a family and makes me love what I do! I love getting to connect with my patients by the end of their appointment and being the reason for someone’s smile! 

Angela- Clinical Assistant (est. 2019)

I love many things about working in dentistry. I love the relationships I’ve made with patients and making them feel comfortable and easing anxiety they have. At Happy Tooth, I like everyone works as a team to help one another. Being a dental assistant is so much more than assisting to me. I love the variety of each day patient and every case. When my patients are happy, it makes me feel happy and accomplished
