Meet the Team

Administrative Staff


Carmen

Office Manager

I love building relationships and helping patients understand their dental insurance. We have a wonderful team here, with each person committed to keeping our patients relaxed and comfortable during visits.

I’m a certified medical and dental insurance biller. Working with patients, I review their insurance coverage, handle paperwork and filing claims, and make sure everyone gets the most from their benefits! I also support our staff with clerical matters to ensure we’re keeping our patients happy.

My time off is spent with family and friends. My daughter is currently attending a Master’s program here in NY and I have a dog, Chance, and a cat, Frisky, who complete my family. I enjoy cooking, time at the beach, and dancing to my favorite music: Salsa!


 

Jessica

Administrative Assistant

I’ve always been told I’m a people person and building a friendly and professional rapport with patients is very important to me. I really enjoy making the patient's experience here as smooth as can be, explaining insurance coverage and making sure everyone feels as comfortable as possible.

I’m a proud graduate of John Bowne High School in Flushing, Queens and I earned my Associates Degree in Liberal Arts at CUNY Queensborough Community College in 2018. Currently, I’m working toward my Bachelor of Art Degree at Queens College.

When I’m not in the office I enjoy spending time with my nephews and going to the movies. I also make a habit of shopping and listening to loud music when I drive to destress. I have an old soul when it comes to music. 90’s old school Hip-Hop, Salsa and R&B are my favorites. My biggest hobby might be my huge sneaker collection!

 

Kylie

Administrative Assistant + Marketing

While new to the world of dentistry, I bring to this wonderful team extensive experience in marketing and customer service - that includes my upbeat Australian attitude and two decades of working on both the client and customer sides of banking, fashion, retail, education and non-profit management. 

I love meeting new people and enjoy welcoming patients with a smile. I understand that visiting the dentist can be a rewarding experience, and my goal is to enhance the journey. Our staff is part of Dr. Kiani's family, and I want each person who walks through the door to feel that way too. 

At home, I am obsessed with my dogs, Snickers and Rolo, and spend most of my spare time working with the nonprofit organization I founded in 2011, Rock & Rawhide, helping shelter animals in the Tri-State area. When I'm not covered in dog hair, you can find me at the beach or at the gym.

Jessica

Registered Dental Hygienist

What excites me most about dental hygiene is the opportunity to make a positive impact on the world, one patient at a time. I enjoy getting to know my diverse group of patients and showing them that a visit to the dentist can actually be a pleasant experience! I feel accomplished when I build a foundation of trust by making the visit comfortable, enjoyable and informative. I take pride in providing the best care possible and giving patients the latest information to ensure that they maintain a healthy smile. I hope to leave all my patients with the knowledge, confidence and enthusiasm they need to take control of their oral health.

Outside of the office, I enjoy exercising and traveling the world. I love spending time with my boyfriend, family and friends!

Dental Assistant

Shahnoza

I like meeting new people and learning about their lives and interests. We have the best patients, and each of them has stories I want to hear! Some patients worry about seeing the dentist: I promise them that Dr. Kiani is gentle and that patients will feel comfortable during their visits.

I prepare the operatories to make sure everything is ready. After I seat our patient, I explain what their visit will entail. Working chairside, I assist Dr. Kiani and, at the same time, I talk with our patient about what we’re doing and make sure that they’re still comfortable. When the procedure is finished, I offer home care instructions and answer questions.

When I’m not working, I’m usually with my family. My husband, daughter, son, and I love to travel and go to amusement parks. I like escaping into a good book and listening to classical music, too.
