Hi, my name is Sharon, and I have the greatest job ever as the patient care coordinator and director of first impressions! I have been with Riverdale Oral Health Center since early 2016, and I truly enjoy meeting and greeting our patients. I love answering questions and making everyone feel at ease during their visit. I also enjoy being part of such a wonderful team and working with truly sensitive and caring doctors. I am married and have 3 daughters and 11 grandchildren. When I am not at work, I enjoy reading and making needlepoint Tellis bags for my 8 grandsons, husband, and son-in-law. I also love cooking and sitting down to dinner with friend and family.
Hi, I’m Bethann, and I am the director of patient satisfaction and services as well as the supervisor of success and growth here at Riverdale Oral Health. I have been with ROH for 4 years, but I have been working in the dental field since I was 16 years old, when I worked as a dental assistant while attending high school. I worked in the Empire State Building as an assistant while attending Baruch College, where I earned my bachelor’s degree in psychology. Even though I work in dentistry, my degree comes in handy!!I was drawn to Riverdale Oral Health Center because of the unusually high quality of the dentistry here, but and because of the extraordinary amount of heart, ethics, and integrity that Drs. Adler and Berson have as both human beings and as caregivers in the dental field. I am in awe of their honesty and compassion. I have worked for many, many dentists, and these attributes are not a given. I look up to them on both a professional and personal level. I pour my heart into what I do here and try to make a difference every day. I have achieved my goals if our patients, doctors, and team are happy! When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with: Craig, my love, my 21-year-old daughter, Farrah, and my 19-year-old son, Derick. My children are in college, and my daughter will be off to grad school in September of 2018! Traveling is my other love, and we recently returned from a family vacation in England and France! The only downfall to traveling is leaving Felix and Duncan, my 7-year-old, black and white DSH cats, and Skylar, my 3-year-old Australian Cattle dog mutt at home. All of our pets are rescue animals, and we all love and spoil them as much as possible!

Maria Alejandra Gonzalez, Dental Assistant
Hi! I’m Maria, and I am a dental assistant at Riverdale Oral Health and Implant Center! I attended Colegio del Sagrado Corazon de Jesus in the Dominican Republic, where I earned my doctorate in dentistry. Afterwards, I attended PUCMM from 2005 – 2011 to complete my education in dentistry. In addition to my formal education, I have taken multiple workshops and seminars in dental techniques to make it possible for our patients to receive the best care possible. I enjoy being a part of the ROH team, and I work hard every day to be a better professional and to learn something new. One of my favorite parts about being a dental assistant is having the opportunity increase and add to patient comfort and satisfaction.
My family is my everything, they help me be a better person every day. Outside of work, I continue to try and learn new things about dentistry, while finding some time to just relax!

She enjoys working with two wonderful dentists, Dr. Adler and Dr. Berson, because they are amazing at what they do and strive to make every patient feel comfortable and satisfied with their dental care. Prior to joining our team, Rosanna earned her Bachelor of Science degree in healthcare management, which has helped her better serve our patients as our facilitator of insurance reimbursements.
Rosanna has two wonderful and fun sons, Adrian and Jacob. In her spare time, she enjoys doing makeup and watching Adrian play soccer.
