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.

Hello, my name is Jenny Vidal. I’ve been in the Medical Field since 2004 as a Medical Biller and Collector working in NYC. I’ve moved from New York in 2009 to Lincoln Park NJ.

I’ve had the pleasure to meet Dr. Sokolina; her spark and energy make it a wonderful learning experience and excitement of helping the patient with their sleep apnea problem and TMJ. I am the Medical Admin and Medical Biller in Harmony Dental Arts. I’m here to assist all patients with their questions and needs pertaining to their insurance. I help educate patients about our services and about their insurance what’s covered and what’s not. All concerns and questions are answered before proceeding.
