The brief biographies below can serve as a brief introduction to our staff before you call for an appointment.

Audra,Registered Dental Hygienist

Audra has been working in the world of dentistry for nearly 35 years, and she’s proud to say that she works for the most dedicated, skilled, and compassionate dentist ever! The best part of her job by far is that it feels like home. The amazing team members and wonderful patients all feel like family, and she makes it her mission to treat every new visitor with compassion and respect.

Audra and her husband Eddie have a daughter, Kayla and a son, Matthew. Outside of working hours, she enjoys swimming, riding bikes, taking walks along the beautiful Jersey Shore, and trying new recipes in the kitchen with her family. Most Saturdays, you can find them cheering on Matthew at the football field and basketball court. She’s also always working on arts and crafts and loves putting together unique gifts to show others how special they are to her!

Kathleen, Registered Dental Assistant

Dental assistant Kathleen

For Kathleen, the best part about being a dental assistant is getting to provide specific treatments for each unique patient so that their needs are met. She loves that Dooley Dental is a very progressive office that uses only the finest materials for an outstanding care experience! Her career in the dental world spans a full decade so far.

At home, Kathleen has two sons and a daughter. Everyone is very busy, but they all have a lot of love and support for one another and always look forward to spending time together. As for her own personal hobbies, she loves painting, restoring old furniture, and tackling other projects that give her the opportunity to be creative. You can also often find her working in the garden, bike riding, hiking, or (most recently) kayaking. Above all else, her goal is to leave something better than it was when she first started.
