Anesthesiologist, Eugenio Gaston, RDH


My name is Eugenio Gaston. I am from Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic, I graduated from Unibe School of dentistry in 1997. In 2005 I had the opportunity to move to the United State and start a new life. During the first years in this beautiful country, my wife and I were blessed with two handsome boys. We all love the outdoors, camping, swimming, video games, and road trips. Because being in the dental field was always in the back of my mind, I worked as a dental assistant for 8 years, and when the time was right I decided to go back to school, so I enrolled at Rutgers University. In December 2016 I finished the Rutgers Dental Hygiene program with high honors and currently hold a license to practice as a Registered Dental hygienist and Local Anesthesia Provider in the state of New Jersey.

It’s my pleasure to serve you and be a part of the Harmony Dental Arts team.

My name is Maryana Kit. I was born in Ukraine. In my high school years, I could not choose between math and dentistry and finally, I graduated from Lviv National University with a PhD diploma in mathematics and mechanics.

I met Dr. Sokolina in the United States and she gave me a chance to try myself in a dental office. My first weeks with this dental team was so excited that I decided to continue studying dentistry. Soon I finished Dental Radiology courses and got my first license in this field. Right now, I proceed with studying at the Dental Studies Institute of New Jersey and hope to become a Certified Dental Assistant shortly.

I enjoy working with great coworkers and happy to help our patients.
