Our Team

Jessica- Front Desk

Hi! I’m from the windy city of Chicago. I have been working in dental offices for about 14 years now. I’ve gone from dental assistant to insurance biller to receptionist to office manager. I am your go-to person for any financial or insurance questions you may have. My main goal is to make sure that all of your needs are met and your questions answered from the beginning to the end of every one of your visits with us.

Manhattan Dental Studio isn’t just a job. Here, we’re all family! Dr Tomack is a wonderful boss. (I promise he didn’t pay me to say that!) He treats everyone with respect and has a great sense of humor. I know you’re going to love him!

If you have any questions, you can contact me at [email protected]


Ruth- Front Desk

I am Biology graduate at SUNY Buffalo and I became interested in the dental field during my studies.  I enjoy working at Manhattan Dental Studio because of the professional and family-like environment. My favorite thing is being able to use what I know about dental insurance to help make our patients lives easier.

On the weekends, I like to bake sweet desserts, read and watch movies.

Margi- Assistant

Hello, my name is Marzena, but everyone calls me Margi. I’m originally from Northwest Poland. I moved to New York in 1996. I worked for an oral surgeon for two years, then in 1998 I started working with Dr Tomack as his assistant. When it comes to dentistry, we have worked together for so long that it’s almost like Dr Tomack and I can read each other’s minds. I enjoy interacting with patients and making them feel comfortable.

When I’m not at work, I like being outdoors, camping, skiing and spending time with my family.

Mia- Hygienist

My name is Mia. I’m originally from Royersford, Pennsylvania.  I started working in the dental field in 1998 upon graduating high school.  I wanted to work in an environment where I was able to help people and I enjoy the flexibility that the field offers.  My favorite thing about working at Manhattan Dental Studio is the small family atmosphere and getting to know our great patients. I believe that I have a gentle touch and I am able to give patients information on how to treat themselves in their regular routines to preserve their smiles for a lifetime.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, 2 year old son, and cockapoo, Maggie.  I love to work out, travel and any outdoor activities.  The Caribbean beaches are my favorite travel destination.

Patty- Hygienist

I am originally from Lima, Peru. I went to dental school there and became a dentist, where I practiced for a few years before moving to New York. Once in NY, I became an assistant, then a hygienist. I enjoy motivating patients on improving their oral health and providing an extra set of eyes in the diagnosis process. I enjoy working at Manhattan Dental studio because I like Dr Tomack’s sense of humor and Dr Behren’s sweet personality.

When I’m not at work, I’m spending time with my twin babies and my husband. Before my twins, I used to enjoy working out, hiking and traveling. I hope to start doing those things again very soon!



Maria- Assistant

I started working in the dental field after my children started school. Our family dentist offered me a job running his office; I liked it so much that I decided to make a career out of it and learn the clinical area. I now assist all the doctors at Manhattan Dental Studio. I enjoy interacting with the patients and helping the doctors achieve the best solution to the patients needs. This brings me a lot of pleasure. What I enjoy most is knowing how satisfied each of our patients are when they leave the office. Patients appreciate my friendly, caring and detailed-oriented personality. I listen to their concerns and make them comfortable by answering any questions they may have prior to their treatment. It is a great feeling, being able to make the patient feel relaxed during their visit.

On the weekends, I enjoy gardening, playing the piano, bicycle riding and walking with my dog along the water.
