I have been in the dental field for over 11 years. As a native of the Jersey shore, I attended Ocean County Vocational School for dental assisting and radiography. After graduation I worked as an endodontic assistant where I mastered the process of root canal treatment and was also introduced to front desk duties. After a few years, I took a position at a general dental office to perfect my skills in all dental assisting areas, while still doing reception and front desk duties. I then spent two years managing a general dental practice in Orlando, Florida.  During this time, I took courses on office management and insurance specialties. I returned to NJ where I currently reside in Point Pleasant with my family. In 2008 I was given the pleasure of working for Dr. Rutz, and am thankful every day for this wonderful position. You can find me at the front desk, ready to help you with any of your dental or insurance questions. Working here, with our team of professionals and our great patients is a joy.  I look forward to the advances in dentistry and what the future holds for Gentle Dental Care.


I grew up in Ocean County, where I still reside with my husband and three children. I attended Ocean County Vocational School in 1997, and completed studies in dental assisting and radiography. Since 2000, I have been happily employed by Dr. Rutz, where I have been both a dental assistant and a receptionist. I enjoy staying busy, and I use my skills to make the days run smoothly. I have mastered the art of modern dental assisting and digital radiography. I enjoy helping patients understand there treatment and walk them step by step through the procedures. I stay current with all new dental knowledge and incorporate it in a day’s work. Dr. Rutz is loved by all his patients and I am proud to be part of his team.



I have over 36 years of dental experience with the last 16 years working for Dr. Rutz. My experience includes all advanced dental assisting procedures for general and family dentistry. Besides enjoying the technical aspects of dental assisting, I take great pride with interacting with patients. This would include helping them understand the procedures they will be receiving, thus allowing them to relax and have a pleasant dental visit. My academic credentials include two years of study at Bergen Community College; attending Fairleigh Dickinson University for dental assisting courses and my x-ray license. I also attended Ocean County Vocational School for my CDA and RDA licenses. I am a native of New Jersey, having grown up in North Jersey and settling in Toms River in 1981, with my husband and two children.
