Stefanie is a clinical assistant at Oceans. She has always had a love for working with children and spent eight years as a preschool teacher. She is also a new mommy! She and her husband welcomed their son Hudson in April 2021. In addition to possessing her Child Development Associates, she studied at New Jersey School of Dental Assisting and obtained her dental x-ray license. This quirky combination led her on a perfect path to work in a pediatric/orthodontic office. She strives to form a connection and sense of comfort for each and every patient, and hopes to make every trip to the dentist a positive one. Outside of the office Stefanie loves baking, road trips, and finding a good deal at target!
Huyen is our administrator and financial coordinator. She graduated from Penn State University in 2012. She grew up in a family business and owned one herself.

Fast forward to today, her focus is to use her acquired skills to help patients and their families with their finances. Outside of work you can find her at the gym training or coaching Olympic weightlifting.
Registered Dental Hygienist
Kate is a registered dental hygienist. She loves working with children of all ages. In fact, Kate started out her career as a high school English teacher. But her true calling to the dental field could not be ignored, so she pursued her dream of becoming a dental hygienist at Bergen Community College. Now she loves having one on one time with each patient and being able to teach them about their oral health. She believes going to the dentist can be a fun, positive experience for every patient to be proud of! Outside of the office she loves spending time with her own two kids out in nature.
Orthodontic Treatment Coordinator
Ashley is our Treatment Coordinator for Dr. Frank on the ortho side! At Oceans she helps start our patients in their orthodontic journey, from palate expanders to braces and more. She has two young girls of her own, so she loves connecting with our littles to make ortho a fun and exciting experience. Her favorite part about being our TC is seeing everyone’s smile transformations and their confidence glow up when they see their final results. She’s also our resident artist and loves painting, crafting, and writing. In her spare time, you can find her having dance parties with her girls, camping, collecting cool new crystals, and soaking up the sun at the beach. And if that doesn’t keep her busy enough she also has SIX pets and tons of plant babies!
