Melissa Noal – Dental Assistant
Raised in the Ironbound section of Newark, Melissa began her career in the dental field at the young age of 17. Melissa is passionate about all disciplines of dentistry, but she especially loves crown and bridgework. Her bubbly personality and warm smile help to make the most anxious patient feel comfortable and even enjoy coming to the dentist. When not at work, Melissa has many hobbies that keep her busy.
Melissa loves watching Netflix and cuddling with her dog Luna. She also spends a lot of time outdoors, whether hiking or walking on the beach to collect driftwood for her artwork. She even refinishes furniture! Melissa is a proud aunt to her niece and nephew and an animal aunt to four dogs and one cat. Summit Dental Partners is lucky to have Melissa on our team!
Maria Tamayo – Office Manager
Born and raised in Jersey City, Maria studied biology and loves dentistry for its ability to combine science and modern technology with artistry. She loves seeing people smile! You will hear her friendly voice as soon as you call our office, and you will be greeted by her warm smile as soon as you walk through our doors.
When Maria is not at work, she loves spending as much time as possible enjoying the outdoors with her daughter and son. She is also extremely crafty and can often be found keeping herself busy with DIY projects.
Summit Dental Partners is thrilled to have Maria as our office manager!
