Meet Our Current Head Interns

Brittany Gordon

B.S., St. Johns University-Queens

Brittany is currently working at Hohokus Dental Associates as the head Intern while completing her pre-requisites for Dental School. Brittany’s passion for Dentistry was sparked during her undergrad career when she traveled to Honduras with the Medical/Dental Global Brigades (St. John’s Chapter). She was able to shadow dentists as they provided free dental care to underprivileged communities, some of which had never had access to a dentist before. She describes the experience as life-changing and extremely fulfilling. She feels Hohokus Dental put her life into perspective and has given her the direction she needed. She is extremely grateful for the opportunity to intern at such a prestigious establishment as Hohokus Dental and looks forward to her future in Dentistry.
