Meet the Support Staff

Lois, RDA & Office Manager

Lois, RDA & Office Manager"My daily goal is to help our patients understand their treatment needs and how to make them affordable. Having worked with Dr. Krantz for over 30 years, I have learned and cultivated how to properly submit for dental treatment to insurance carriers and coordinate primary and secondary plans. I do all claim submissions for our patients and review each one after insurance processes them to ensure accuracy. I try to perfect my skills and stay current by constantly taking continuing education classes.

"I work closely with our patients to try to make dental care fit into their budgets. We accept cash, checks, major credit cards and Care Credit® for those who qualify. Together we try to maximize your insurance in order to correctly utilize your dental benefits. When I am not at our office, I spend my time reading, knitting, playing the piano and being with my grandchildren. I LOVE to dance and enjoy both classical music and good-old rock 'n' roll!"

Lourdes, RDH

Lourdes, RDH"Before going to college to get my degree in dental hygiene, I was a dental assistant for 12 years. Although I enjoyed the work and the dentist I worked for, I then decided I would like more one-on-one time with the patients. I graduated hygiene school in 1992 and have been working and loving it ever since. In my free time, I enjoy exercising and being outdoors in nature, especially by the seashore, rivers and lakes. I absolutely adore my 16-year-old cat, Jack."




Barbara, RDH & Administrative Assistant

Barbara, RDH & Administrative Assistant"For 35 years, I've been in the dental field. After graduating college with my dental hygiene degree in 1982, I worked in orthodontic offices and general dentist practices. Not only have I continued to use my expanded functions throughout the years, but I have also gained knowledge of the front office. I remain CPR-certified along with our entire team and attend continuing education lectures.

"My career started out by meeting so many new and wonderful patients. Today, I am still making new friends and staying connected with the Vintage group! Along the way, I married my best friend and we raised our beautiful daughter along with a pet or two. Beyond that, I enjoy the outdoors, cruising and Jimmy Buffett concerts."

Carol, RDA

Carol, RDA"My career has given me many opportunities; however, the one I enjoy the most is being a registered dental assistant (RDA). These duties include taking X-rays and mouth impressions, making temporary crowns and fabricating night guards and teeth whitening bleaching trays; and of course assisting Dr. Krantz with our day-to-day patient care. I enjoy interacting with our patients, being compassionate, and understanding their concerns. It is important to me to help our patients feel comfortable and relaxed.

"In my spare time, I enjoy world travel, which has taken me to many different countries where I learned about their cultures and customs. My favorite trip was to Tanzania and Kenya in Africa. The vibrant colors and gorgeous countryside were breathtaking. Locally, I go to cooking classes and learn how to incorporate a healthy lifestyle with foods."

Melissa, RDA

Melissa, RDA"I was introduced into the dental field my last two years of high school. I found I enjoyed it so much that I went on to the Institute for Health Education. I received my CDA and RDA licensure in 2005 and have been actively working in the dental field and joined the Krantz Dental Care team in 2013.

"I assist Dr. Krantz with patients on a daily basis, with everything from simple tooth-colored fillings to large-scale restorations. My tasks also include working in our lab to fabricate night guards, bleaching trays and other dental devices. I really enjoy being part of a team that has been able to help ease patients' fears with painless dentistry as well as helping patients smile again.

"I was born and raised in Clifton, New Jersey with a house full of six sisters. During my time, off I enjoy being outdoors: biking, hiking, and camping. I'm a 'foodie' at heart and always keep my ears peeled for great local places. When I do put my feet up, it's to delve into my latest read."

My experience with Dr Krantz and his staff is always professional and friendly. Every interaction from Lois welcoming me at the desk and inquiring about my health and family to Barbara handling payment is warm! The best part of the visit is the periodontal exam and cleaning from Lordes, the absolute best Hygienist in New Jersey! She is so thorough and complete in the process, you feel like you have a new mouth, when she's glad I found this Dental practice.
