Registered Dental Hygienist
Quick to smile and always warm and friendly, Dawn excels at delivering gentle, thorough hygiene care and non-surgical periodontal treatments to our patients. A lot of her day is spent educating each patient about the best home oral hygiene processes, and talking with people to find solutions that work with their specific needs and lifestyle. Dawn loves helping patients get and stay healthy! Her goal is to make every visit the best experience that she can. Periodontal treatment is the most satisfying, since she sees the most results from her motivation.
Dawn lives in Kingwood with her husband John, and has two daughters: one in Ohio and the other getting ready for college. She spends a lot of time volunteering for the music programs at the high school where her daughter is involved.
Office Manager, Administration
Denise keeps our office running smoothly so our team can focus on what’s important: delivering exceptional dental care to our patients! She’s worked with Dr. DeLorenzo since 1994, and loves the friendships she’s developed with our patients and their families. Always smiling and joking, Denise sets people at ease and reassures them that here, we offer only painless, compassionate dental care. Among her many duties, Denise handles scheduling, filing, and insurance, and helps our patients with paperwork. She also makes financial arrangements that work with a patient’s budget, so they get the care they need, when they need it. The smiles on our patients’ faces is extremely rewarding to her!
When she’s not in the office, Denise is very busy with her two young men. Watching them play their sports is a crucial part of her life. She is an animal lover who lives with three dogs, two cats, multiple chickens, ducks, and a pot-bellied pig named Bacon.
Usually found at Dr. DeLorenzo’s side, Elaine assists during dental procedures, in educating patients about their treatments, and by making patients comfortable during their visit. A 1978 graduate of Lyons Institute Dental Assisting School, Elaine joined DeLorenzo Dentistry in 1999. She shares our philosophy that our patients are our top priority.
Elaine lives in Raritan Township with her husband Bill. They enjoy spending time with their grown children and spouses, granddaughter, and two grand-pups. In her spare time, Elaine enjoys baking to share with family and friends. She is often either baking, reading, or reading a cookbook!
Dental Assistant, Office Assistant
Elaine loves helping our patients reach their dental health goals and seeing the healthy, beautiful smiles that result from the care we provide. She’s great at working with our patients, from the time they arrive for their visit until they leave, and guides them through everything. Always smiling, Elaine helps patients learn to relax and feel secure while in our care. As a dental assistant, she sits chairside as Dr. DeLorenzo performs dental procedures, and helps him as needed. However, her focus is always on the patient’s comfort and health.
Elaine has lived in Hunterdon County for nearly three decades with her husband Bob and her two children, both of whom are grown and married. Her son Matt and his wife Amanda have two handsome boys, Charles and James. Her daughter Emily and husband Matt have one handsome son Alex and are expecting a daughter in May 2019. In her free time, Elaine enjoys needlework, knitting, and reading.
Administration & Marketing
Nicole is what we like to call our “jack-of-all-trades.” Nicole started with DeLorenzo Dentistry as a floating assistant and recently obtained her dental X-ray license. While her first priority is patient care at the front desk, you may see her throughout the office, sterilizing instruments or helping our dental hygienists and assistants prepare for their patients. With her technical knowledge, Nicole also manages our social media pages and marketing, and thinks up the fun contests we have.
Nicole is getting married in October 2019. She has three dogs: Lucky, Louie, and Savannah. In her free time, she enjoys kayaking, exercising, and being crafty.
A preventive specialist, Athena joined our office in 2012 when she brought more than 30 years of experience. Her friendly smile and gentle demeanor always put our patients at ease. Her goal is to work with patients one on one: creating treatment plans that cater to each individual’s needs.
When she’s not working, Athena is NEVER bored. She exercises by biking, hiking, and running; loves to bake and read; and even volunteers as a Girl Scout leader and as a volleyball booster club member. Add in travel and running her household, and she is always busy!
