Meet the Staff

June Mcphillips

juneWelcome to our practice! I work here as a registered dental hygienist, and I help perform all clinical duties. I band and deband patients, and am in charge of hygiene and home care for all patients. I have 24 years of experience as a dental hygienist, and love working with the kids! On the last day of treatment, I love seeing their new smiles, and the smiles of their proud parents! At home, my husband, Michael and I have two daughters named Tara and Lauren, who love to dance! We also have a son, Matt.  In the summer, my family and I travel to dance competitions where the girls perform!

 

 

Marion Renzulli

marionHi there! As the scheduling coordinator, I’m responsible for the front desk and scheduling patients for Dr. Craig. I am the first person they see and the last person they interact with in our office. I love helping the patients schedule their appointments to fit their schedules. I have become good friends over the years with many of the patients who frequent our office. My family includes Terry, my husband, and my three sons, Jamie, Kory and Justin. In my spare time, I love golfing, traveling, cooking and baking. I also enjoy planning parties, which is my specialty!

 

 

Barbara Belechto

barbaraHello, it’s nice to meet you. I am the insurance coordinator, and I help our patients by contacting insurance organizations to ensure our patients are getting the most coverage possible. I am devoted to our patients! I always treat them with respect and kindness and use my knowledge to make them feel at home. I love working for Dr. Craig, and love his 2-year-old daughter, Maddie even more! At home, since my four children have moved out, I love inviting them over for dinner, BBQ's and to play catch phrase. In addition, I have two lovely grandchildren that I enjoy spending time with.  My husband, Harry, and I also own "Hot Spot Pet Supply" in Manorville, NY.

 

Jennifer Sigurdson

Hi everyone!! My name is Jennifer, I am an assistant to Dr. Craig and absolutely love my job! I greatly enjoy interacting and socializing with others on friendly and professional levels. I love not only improving smiles for kids but creating them as well. I am currently in my 5th year of college pursuing my degree in Dentristry and I am very devoted to my studies. Amongst my studies, I am also a very family orientated individual and like to spend my remaining time with my friends and family. My goal is excellence and professionalism in patient care and I look forward to getting to know all of you!

 

 

Danielle Aliperti

As an orthodontic assistant, I assist Dr. Craig in the clinic, and get to create and organize monthly patient contests! I treat our younger patients as if they were my own children, and adult patients like family members. I love to laugh with our patients and make them feel completely at ease here. Our office is a very family-oriented place, and Dr. Craig has an awesome sense of humor! My family includes my two wonderful boys. Christopher is 13 years old, and Andrew is ten. We love to watch all sports, live or on TV!  I also love to cook, and used to own and operate several pizza and hero shops.

 

 

Fran Sobelman

franHello, and welcome to our practice! I am the office manager, new patient coordinator, and financial supervisor! I do a lot of behind-the-scenes work to make sure our office runs smoothly, and that our patients have a wonderful orthodontic experience. I enjoy meeting new families and getting to know them throughout their treatment time. Dr. Craig is very caring with the patients, so it is easy to reassure new patients that they will have a great smile after completion of treatment! My family includes my husband, Marty, our two wonderful children, their spouses and our five beautiful grandchildren! I am truly blessed.


 

 

Jilliene Pladl

Hello, my name is Jilliene and I work as an orthodontic assistant for Dr. Craig. Although I am new to the practice, I have over 10 years of experience in the field. It is important to me that when your child is in my care, they are comfortable and well informed about exactly what's going on during their visit, as I would expect for my own children. My family includes my fiance, Steve, my son Kaleb, my daughters, Olivia and Emma, and we are expecting our fourth child early March. We love the beach, and pretty much anything that has to do with being outdoors!
