Upcoming Events



Our Staff


I count my blessings where my staff is concerned. I could never do what I do without them. When you get to know them, you'll understand.

Click on their names to learn more about them...

Elaine, our Financial Coordinator and Den Mother

Elaine has been with this practice for three generations and is still, in spirit, the youngest person on the staff.  She is remarkable in her dedication to the practice, in her connectedness with the staff and patients alike, and in support of me, no matter what cockamamie thing I bring in next.  She has been honored by the American Association of Orthodontists for her 50 years of service....and that was 12 years ago!

Elaine is here to help you afford to provide great care for your children or yourself.  Don't be afraid to ask for her help.

My greatest pleasure is seeing generation after generation return to the Raphael fold to enjoy our new and exciting choices in treatment to enhance good health for our children.  I am a life member of the ADAA, active in the Hopatcong Ladies Aux. of Engine Co.# 2 and the Northwood  Commuity Assoc. I love spending time with my grandchildren,  Ashley and Nicholas, who keep me forever young. - Elaine



Melissa, Patient Coordinator and Seargent

Melissa has been with the practice nearly as long as I have. She has been my right hand when mine doesn't work. She can and will do anything for the practice. But sometimes that right hand becomes an iron fist, usually aimed at getting me to get to work!

 Melissa will help you get your treatment started, help you make and keep your appointments, and see to it that there is a place for you here whenever you need us.



Traci, Treatment Coordinator and Jester

Traci has filled more different roles over the years than anyone else. Now she is also our Game:FACE Coach and health instructor. Her side job is to keep a smile on my face, even when the pressure is on.

 Traci will help your child learn about the good habits that will make them beautiful and healthy. Her job is to keep the kids on track during the program.



Amanda, Assistant and Mushball

Let's face it - I have a really nice staff. But Amanda is the nicest of all. And none of us can do our jobs entirely without her help. Aaaand, she understands everything I say. I love that.

Amanda will do (almost) anything you need her to do. She is also a Game:FACE and health coach.



Carmen, C.D.A and Props

Besides being a top notch dental assistant, Carmen handles all the behind-the-scenes matters: supplies, labs, sterilization, ordering, etc. We count on Carmen to help me do my work at the chair.



Tamara, C.D.A and Duty-Call

That "Duty" D-U-T-Y. Because she's always there when you need her, that all. Tamara is also an oral surgery assistant, but fills in for us whenever she can. We love to count on her!


orthodontist-clifton-nj-new-jerseyWe thank our patients for the trust they have put in our orthodontics practice the past 30 years (60 years if you include my Dad and Elaine).
I hope this website earns their trust again.

Barry Raphael, DMD
