Alicia – Financial Coordinator

Alicia – Financial Coordinator

I am the Financial Coordinator here at The Schulhof Center. It is my job to present the finances associated with our patients’ orthodontic treatment and discuss payment options that best fit their financial budget. I set up flexible, interest-free payment plans and do all the billing to insurance for in and out-of-network providers. Having the opportunity to be involved in transforming someone’s smile is a gift! I love working in an environment that is genuine, caring and passionate! I am dedicated to helping each person who visits us have a great experience. I graduated from Ramapo College Of New Jersey with a Bachelor of Science in Communications. On my free time, I enjoy photography,traveling, and spending time with my family.

Kristina – Treatment Coordinator

Kristina – Treatment Coordinator

My name is Kristina and I have worked with Dr. Schulhof for 4 years. I started off as an Orthodontic Assistant but as my time with the practice grew, so did my passion for Orthodontics. I now work as the Treatment Coordinator and the New York location. As Treatment Coordinator, I meet with you at your initial consultation and follow you throughout your treatment. My favorite parts of my job are seeing the excitement in patients faces when they get started, and the joy that radiates from them when they finish their treatment and have their picture perfect smiles! When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my family, shopping, and smothering my dog Jax with love!

Karolina schulhof center for orthodontics

Karolina –  Orthodontic Assistant

My name is Karolina Peranek and I am a Certified Orthodontic Assistant (COA). I have been in the orthodontic field for about 9 years and have had the pleasure of joining Dr. Schulhof’s talented team in late 2016.  I truly feel that something as simple as a smile can boost a person’s self confidence and it brings me great satisfaction to be able to provide that for our patients.  In my opinion, the best part of working in the orthodontic field is having the ability to constantly learn new things; no patient is ever the same. I am currently studying for my Registered Dental Assistant (RDA) exam and hope to receive my last remaining license by the summer of 2017.  Aside from helping achieve great smiles, I spend most of my free reading, working out and raising my 2 year old wild child!
