Scheduling Coordinator

Hi! My name is Kim. I am thankful to have joined the office of Capogna Orthodontics. I bring many years of experience working in pediatric and general dentistry. What I love is greeting our families with a smile and helping them along this wonderful journey. I will coordinate your appointments to fit your busy schedule and help you to resolve any questions or concerns. What I enjoy most is working with a great team who together, work to make your experience a pleasurable one. I have been happily married for 23 years.

Scheduling Coordinator

I have a long history with Capogna Orthodontics. I started working with Dr. Capogna in 1989 when I completed my education as a dental assistant. I have worked in all areas of the office, but will now be found at the front desk taking care of scheduling, phone calls, and answering any questions you may have. I am married with three grown children. I enjoy walking on the beach and taking vacations with my husband.

Hi! My name is Fran, and I am a scheduling coordinator at Capogna Orthodontics. I have been with Dr. Capogna since 2000. I enjoy my job and am usually the first person you see that greets you with a smile at the front desk. I love seeing happy patients when they arrive for their appointments, and I enjoy interacting with them and their parents. I find appointment times that work with your busy schedule and make sure everyone leaves happy! I am married to my best friend Benny, my junior high school sweetheart. I have two children, Christina and Joseph. I love shopping, so on my days off, you can find me at your local mall!


Certified Orthodontic Technician

I love spending my days working with a great team and caring for our incredible patients. Each person brings much positive energy to our office. In addition to chairside assisting, I create retainers in our on-site lab. My goal each day is to make people smile and enjoy their visits. If I’m not out with my three dogs, you will find me volunteering and running races with my husband John. I’m a member of the Greater Long Island Running Club and New York Road Runners.

I have been in the orthodontic field for 28 years. I am a Certified Dental Assistant with extensive experience. I have worked in many different orthodontic offices over my career. I finally found my home in 2013 when I started working for Dr. Capogna. I grew up in this area most of my life, and I am a graduate of Plainedge High School. I have been married for 24 years and have two children, Vincent and Taylor, and two beautiful granddaughters. When I’m not at work, I am usually spending time with my granddaughters or walking and playing with my two friendly pit bulls Buster and Jasmine.

Outside of the office, dancing is my passion, and I spend a lot of time at my favorite jazz class. My family and I love going to the beach and gardening.

I am the proud mother of three. I enjoy spending my weekends on the sidelines of the soccer fields cheering on my sons, as well as spending some quality girl-time with my daughter. I also love to bake and decorate my desserts.

I decided to stay with orthodontics because I enjoy interacting with patients, and I love to see their beautiful smiles. I am certified in orthodontic assisting, but I am always taking courses to further my education. I love working on the computer, updating our website, and if you see our posts on Facebook, chances are they are my creations! In my free time, I love being with my husband and my two beautiful children. On the weekends, you’ll catch us at a museum, an aquarium, or just relaxing at the beach.

I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my cat, Petey. In the summer you can always find me at the pool or the beach!!
