Nicole has been a Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH) since 2008 and is “as pleased as Punch” that Wagner Schultz Dental is her dental home.

Nicole, a proud native Vermonter, has lived in New Jersey since 2000. Although now a confirmed “flatlander,” Nicole enjoys the Jersey Shore and the (usually) mild winters of a mid-Atlantic state. When not working, she treasures family time with her wonderful husband and equally wonderful son.

Elana Kagan
Elana KaganDental Assistant
Elana has been a dental assistant for approximately 20 years. She was trained as a dental assistant at a young age by her step-father, a dentist, who demanded the best for his patients. She is also fluent in Russian. We are excited to have her as an indispensable part of our dental team. Elana’s broad, ever-present smile and the kindness and concern she has toward our patients has made her a great addition to our practice. Most importantly, her self-assuredness acquired from her many years of dental experience has made even our most “hesitant” patients feel relaxed and very comfortable. For those of you who may be wondering, it is pure coincidence that Elana bears a similar name to Elena Kagan, the U.S. Supreme Court Justice nominated by President Obama. As far as we know, Justice Kagan has no plans to leave the Court in order to practice dentistry in Red Bank!
