Hi, I’m Allison, and I studied dental assisting at Mt. Ida College and became an orthodontic assistant in Dr. Feinberg’s practice in 2000.

I’ve known Dr. Feinberg for many years; my brother and I were both patients of his back in middle school, and I personally know how exceptional an orthodontist he is and how dedicated he is to his patients and their orthodontic care. Working here is like coming to my second home.

Over the years I have taken special pride in allaying the fears and anxieties of our younger patients and seeing the changes both in their smiles and their self-confidence.

When I am not working, I love spending time with my two nephews, family and friends. I also enjoy photography, Giants football and feeling sand between my toes!

Hi, my name is Amy. I am Dr. Feinberg’s office manager and insurance expert! My background is in the health insurance industry and military contracting.

Dr. Feinberg creates beautiful smiles and decreases treatment time even with the most complicated cases. He uses the latest technology and is an expert in the field of orthodontics. It’s so gratifying to be part of the management team and have the opportunity to provide exceptional assistance to our patient families.

In my spare time, I enjoy kayaking, paddleboarding and Bikram Yoga. I am a proud mom of two boys in the United States Military Academies. Go Army! Go Navy!

Hi, I’m Eva, and I am so fortunate to have begun my career path as an orthodontic assistant with Dr. Feinberg right after I graduated the University of Bridgeport in 1986 with a bachelor of science in biology.

Working with Dr. Feinberg and my fellow staff members has been incredibly rewarding; we are one big, happy family! Over the years we have had the opportunity to establish wonderful relationships with our family of patients, and it has been so rewarding to share stories with them and to be a part of the amazing work that our practice does to create beautiful smiles for our patients.

I have been married to my loving husband, Terry since 1989. We have two children, Jeffery and Sarah. Our family also includes one dog, one cat, one fish and one rabbit! Outside the office, I love to knit, crochet, garden, go boating and spend time with my family.

Hi, I’m Heather, and I am the newest member of Dr. Feinberg’s assisting team. I am so excited to be working with Dr. Feinberg and my fellow team members, and I love getting to know each one of our patients and seeing their beautiful new smiles.

I completed dental assisting school in 2007. Prior to being a member of Dr. Feinberg’s team, I was an orthodontic assistant elsewhere, and I can personally attest to how special Dr. Feinberg and our practice is. We are the most high-tech, sophisticated and efficient orthodontic practice, and the SureSmile technology we utilize is a real game changer.

When I am not working, I love attending Rutgers University football games, spending time with my two nephews and my niece. I also enjoy scrapbooking, listening to music and walking.

I truly enjoy working with Dr. Feinberg and being a part of his wonderful staff. We treat every patient, child or adult, with kindness and respect, and our rewards are gratifying. It’s great to see our patients’ beautiful smiles, and I enjoy the relationship we build along their journey … they become like family.

Hi, My name is Robyn, and I am Dr. Feinberg’s office manager.

I started with Dr. Feinberg’s father 28 years ago. I have seen so many changes, but the one constant has been the dedication of Dr. Feinberg and the entire staff in providing each patient with the best smile possible. I especially enjoy seeing former patients come back for treatment for their families.

My husband and I have two married daughters and four terrific grandchildren. When I am not working, I enjoy reading and cheering for my Lady Huskies!
