Registered Dental Hygienist
I was born and raised in Greene County. I fell in love with dentistry early in my life and earned my degree in Dental Hygiene from Hudson Valley Community College in 1992. I have been with Hudson Valley Dentistry since 1995. I have advanced training in periodontal treatment and maintenance and I continue my education in striving to achieve optimal oral health with each of my patients.
I have worked in the dental field as a dental assistant/office manager for almost 30 years. I enjoy what I do and pride myself in the excellent service we provide as a dental office.
Certified Dental Assistant
I have been a dental assistant for more than 10 years in the Hudson Valley. I received my dental assistant training through Hudson Valley Community College. I enjoy learning new techniques and advancing my knowledge through continuing education courses. As a Saugerties native, I love seeing familiar faces in and out of the dental office. In my spare time, I love to travel, hike, and explore the beautiful Catskill Mountains.
I started my dentistry journey in endodontics before enrolling in a Dental Assistant Training program in Newburgh. I joined Dr. Ohkawa’s team in January 2021 and I love learning the procedures when not at work. My husband and I enjoy playing music, hiking, and general outdoor fun. The best part about my job is meeting the new patients and helping them.
