Carrie, Front Desk Administration

Front desk administrator Carrie

Carrie has been a part of the dental field for over 15 years now, with nearly half of that time spent right here at Dooley Dental. She loves working with such an incredible doctor and team who all strive to provide the best care experience possible! Seeing patients overcome their fear of the dentist’s office and finally enjoy their smile again is always so rewarding for her.

Outside of work, Carrie loves spending quality time with her two older brothers and three wonderful nieces. As for hobbies, she enjoys volunteering with animals (this includes fostering cats, walking dogs, cleaning shelters – you name it!), attending fiber festivals with her crochet/knitting friends all over the country, traveling, going to concerts, hiking in the woods, and hanging out at the beach.

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!

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.

At home, Monika’s family includes her hardworking husband Tim, their smart and funny daughter Martina, and their loyal Golden Retriever Ginger. As a group, they enjoy being outdoors, walking, exploring, gardening, and discovering new places in their RV. As for personal hobbies, she always looks forward to cooking, gardening, watching Martina ride her horse Apache, and more than anything else, making long lasting memories.
