Quality Dentistry in Cortlandt Manor is a Team Effort

The team at Dr. Taxin's office

It’s true that Dr. Taxin delivers exceptional dental care to his patients, but he’s certainly not alone!

Dental Assistants

Dr. Taxin understands that dentistry that truly meets and even exceeds his patients’ expectations (as well as his own) relies on the expertise of an entire team.

Karina, Dental Assistant

Karina hails from New Rochelle, and has been treating smiles for 13 years, nine of which were at Dr. Taxin's practice! As a dental assistant, Karina helps out Dr. Taxin with many different procedures, and she especially deals with the K-7 Myotronics technology in the office. Karina loves her job, especially taking care of patients and meeting new people. She loves this practice because it's clean and has the latest technology, which helps the team offer the best quality dental care.

When she's not helping patients, Karina spends her time performing rescue work with Pet Rescue in Larchmont. She's an avid animal lover, and has two rescue German Shepherds of her own. She also likes to hang out with her three sisters and two brothers.

Front Office Team

From his office manager to his hygienists and dental assistants, Dr. Taxin’s entire team has received training in various aspects of advanced dentistry and patient care. In fact, many members of his staff have completed the same coursework Dr. Taxin did at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. Each individual reflects the dedication and commitment to exceptional dentistry that is the foundation of this practice.

Joy Pellegrino, Office Manager

Joy is originally from Westchester County, and has worked in the dental industry for 25 years!. Her title of "Office Manager" is misleading, because Joy is the office's jack-of-all-trades! She keeps things running smoothly at the practice, welcomes patients, schedules appointments, and acts as the insurance and financial coordinator of the office.

Joy loves making her patients feel at home in the office, and enjoys working with her fellow coworkers. She does her best to treat each person as though they are a member of her own family, and is truly committed to her job. She knows that her outgoing nature helps her communicate and teach her patients about their oral care.

Outside of the office, Joy loves gardening, designing jewelry, and spending time with her grandchildren. Joy especially loves to shop and attend estate sales to find little presents for her friends and family. She likes spending time with her many friends.
