Administrative Team


Donna J.

Office Manager

Donna has extensive experience in dentistry: first as a dental assistant and now in administration. She helps to make patients and their parents feel at home while scheduling appointments and taking care of billing and accounts. Donna is kind and compassionate — something we all share at Shore Smiles 4 Kids!

Donna and her husband Pat enjoy attending concerts and trying out new restaurants with their friends.


Taryn W.

Dental Assistant

Taryn assists Dr. Dawn with our patients’ procedures. She became interested in dentistry in college and has applied to dental school with the hope of becoming a pediatric dentist and working with Dr. Dawn one day! Taryn currently holds a B.S. from Fairfield University and a master’s from Adelphi University. She makes all patients feel special — because they are!

Outside of work, Taryn enjoys spending time with her boyfriend John.
