Inga

Office Manager, RDA

It is my duty to oversee the office, keep it running smoothly, and complete all requests so that Dr. Barba can provide state-of-the-art dentistry to our patients. This includes heading-up special projects, training new staff, continued training of existing staff, and financial coordination. My favorite part of my job is helping our patients achieve optimal dental health, whether it is by holding their hand during a procedure, making their treatment affordable for them, or just being an ear to listen to them. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 18 years, and we have three beautiful children. I enjoy exercising, being a teacher’s helper for CCD, and spending time with my family.

Kim

Registered Dental Assistant

I have been a dental assistant for 26 years and was pleased to join Dr. Barba’s team in 2012. It’s very rewarding to get to know so many people on a personal level while helping them to achieve the smile they desire and deserve. Dr. Barba has a great passion for what she does. She is constantly furthering our education to keep us up-to-date on the latest in dentistry, and is very compassionate towards her patients. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my two teenage boys. They keep me on my toes!

Karen

Registered Dental Assistant

I started my career as a dental assistant in 1979. I have continued my education over the years to stay on top of the latest advancements in dentistry. This made me a natural fit for Team Barba. I joined in April 2017 when I moved back home to New Jersey from Florida to be near my family. Our team is dedicated to creating a positive, relaxing atmosphere while providing quality dental care. When I am not in the office I enjoy dabbling in photography, creating jewelry and spending time with family and friends.

Registered Dental Hygienist

It is my job to keep my patients healthy by being their periodontal specialist. I do this by evaluating, treating, and maintaining patients throughout their treatment along their journey to optimal dental health. Dr. Barba enables me to be the best hygienist I can be. She allows me to work in an environment that is state-of-the-art and use all the latest technology to treat my patients as an equal clinical partner in her office. I am happily married with two children. My family and friends are very important to me.  My personal passion is staying healthy by eating well and exercising.

Registered Dental Hygienist

I have been a hygienist for nearly 30 years and I love what I do. I pride myself in providing optimal care for my patients by maintaining their periodontal and overall health and wellness. Dr. Barba continues to facilitate my conscientious ability to practice this way with my continued education and providing a state-of-the-art facility in which to practice. I want each and every patient experience to be positive and comfortable. Out of the office, I am a happy mother of two teenage boys and I enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle by the beach.

It is my pleasure to be the first point of contact for our patients. I make sure to make them feel welcomed with a warm smile and soft voice and answer any questions they may have. It is my delight to help our patients in any way I can from scheduling an appointment to filing their insurance claims. I am so blessed to work with these amazing women and complete Team Barba.

Out of the office I like to go on adventures with my husband and our children. We enjoy visiting historical and scenic areas, and off-roading with the jeep community. We firmly believe in giving back and annually do a toy drive, a food drive and “clean ups” in our state and local forests.
