Meet Our Dental Staff Team

Dan, Office Manager

Daniel Tise

Dental Office Manager

“I graduated from Devry College of New York and joined the East Madison Dental team in 2008. When Dr. Jain offered me the opportunity to join the team I was extremely excited and up for the challenge. I initially joined the team as an IT administrator and shortly after became the Office Manager at East Madison Dental. My goal for patients is to get them healthy when it comes to their oral health care needs. I also try my best to make their experience here a comfortable one. My job at East Madison Dental is unique because you can find me doing everything, ranging from patient treatment financials to cleaning operatories and instruments.

There is nothing I won’t do to help my team or patients. What I love above all is how friendly the whole EMD staff is! My family and I have been coming here since 1999 because of them! Outside from work, I like to ride my bicycle or motorcycle.”

I consider myself to be a veteran with East Madison Dental, I joined the team in 2005. What I enjoy most about dentistry is the way a patient smiles as they leave the office which is most rewarding. My goal for every patient in our office is 6 month dental cleanings and checkups without the need for treatment afterwards. East Madison Dental is like no other office, warm, friendly and best of all quality work!

I enjoy every moment away from the office with my family. They are a very important part of my life with 3 children ranging from 14-25 they keep me busy! I also enjoy doing crafts!”

“My work experience at East Madison Dental is nothing short of exciting and challenging and there is always something to learn everyday! I have worked alongside Dr. Jain as his main assistant since 2000. What I love most about my job is being able to apply the skills I learn and make a positive difference in each patient that we take care of. I do my best to eliminate fear and anxiety from our patients so nothing can keep them from the dental healthcare that they deserve. I believe keeping our patients informed of what to expect and a reassuring presence helps a lot. It’s amazing how far we’ve come to where we are now. I take great pride in being a part of this growth. I am happy that our EMD family has grown so we may be of better service to our patients!

Christine GoffredoChristine, Treatment Coordinator

Marketing & Treatment Coordinator

“My introduction to dentistry began very young in my father’s dental practice in Florida. I always enjoyed spending time at his office, assisting him and getting to know his patients. I believe that those early experiences inspired me to pursue a career where I could help others. Following a Master’s Degree in International Relations from the University of California at Santa Cruz, I began a career in non-profit administration, working for over 4 years in Central America. In 2015, I moved to New York where I administered an international volunteer program. I am now thrilled to be entering into another phase in my career at East Madison Dental, where I can contribute to a robust and dynamic administrative team, while continuing my passion for helping out others by ensuring that all patients receive the high quality that East Madison Dental is known for. When I’m not at work, I’m usually hiking, traveling, and exploring all that the northeast has to offer.”

Right from the smiles you receive as you walk through the front door to the exceptional service, quality of work and extra amenities that we offer our patients is unremarkable.
