Teresa - Patient Coordinator
Teresa is the first person you will meet when stepping into our office. Her welcoming smile and warm disposition immediately puts our patients at ease and makes them feel at home. Teresa genuinely enjoys working with patients and loves getting to know them. Teresa had been with Dr. Briskin since 2008 and has been an integral part of the transition into Ardsley Dental Spa. She looks forward to continuing her relationships with all of our patients.
When Teresa is not in the office she enjoys weekend get-a-ways, reading, going to movies and especially looks forward to spending time with her family and friends!
Gabriela - Dental Hygienist
Gabriela Chiceri’s love of dentistry began in Brazil: “I was born in New York, but my family is Brazilian, and we’d go there for dental care,” she says. “I had two root canals done as a kid, and all I can remember is how sweet and gentle and professional my dentist was. She made it feel like it was nothing.”
Gabriela knows, though, that a trip to the dentist’s office isn’t something most people get excited about. “Your mouth is personal,” she says. “It’s your personal space. So it’s important for us to trust each other. Our relationship isn’t just patient and provider—it’s teamwork.”
And trust, for Gabriela, means meeting you where you are. “I’ve had patients say, ‘My mouth is a mess, please don’t judge me!’ and I’m like, it’s okay! Whatever happened in the past,” she says, “leave it there. It’s never too late to make a change.”
