About Us - Our Staff


Introducing Our Staff

I am Bernard Genet. I graduated from Temple Dental School. I served in the Air Force as a dentist for two years in Louisiana and then moved to the New Jersey area where I have practiced preventative and cosmetic dentistry for over 30 years.

During that time I have enjoyed meeting and continuing to treat many families and their children. More


Dr. Tom Kohler is a periodontist; a specialist who treats diseases of the supporting structures of the teeth – the gums and the surrounding bone. Because of the cosmetic/restorative direction of this office, Dr. Kohler also places the implants used to replace missing teeth and retain loose dentures. In addition, he will also do corrective gum procedures to improve the appearance of the smile architecture before crowns or porcelain laminate veneers are placed.

  Claudia is a part-time receptionist who has extensive experience with front desk and assisting duties. She is also very accomplished in all aspects of dental insurance and has developed a warm rapport with the many patients she has seen through the many years associated with our staff. People often ask” Where is Claudia?" when they arrive on one of her off-days. Claudia enjoys taking care of her grandchildren in her free time and she loves animals of all kinds.
  Darlene is one of our receptionists who is very accomplished at her job. Prior to her 20 plus years of working at this position, she was a dental assistant for about 10 years. She helps our patients with their dental insurance, arranges appointments and can answer most questions about treatment or financial matters. We are very glad to have such an efficient person in such a busy position. On her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her grandchildren and reading.
  Jodi is a part-time receptionist who has been here for many years. Although her time here is limited due to her teaching, church and family demands, she is someone who many people look forward to seeing on a return visit. Besides being a very pleasant and giving individual, she also has acquired many efficient front-desk skills. In addition, her exceptional crafting talents have given her the extra job of decorating the office for every holiday season. We enjoy and appreciate the time she is able to spend with us.
  Marie is a Registered Dental Assistant - licensed to perform expanded functions (the highest level of certification a dental assistant can achieve). She has been an assistant for over 25 years and has worked at this office since 1983. Marie has developed a close relationship with our patients through her warm and gregarious personality as well as being a very efficient and dedicated employee - a very welcome member to our dental family. Very often people will ask for Marie if they do not see her when they are seated.

Eileen has been a Dental Hygienist for over 30 years and has worked here for over 13 years. Not only is she a very accomplished hygienist, but also has taught other hygienists and is also certified in other areas of dentistry. Very knowledgeable and very thoughtful, many patients remark, “no one cleans my teeth as well as Eileen”.


Janice is a part-time Dental Hygienist who has also worked here for many years. She has been in the dental field for over 30 years. Not only is Janice pleasant, affable and efficient, she has also developed a long list of patients who request that she clean their teeth. On her spare time she enjoys gardening, skiing, and spending time with her family.  

  Brittany is a full-time registered and certified assistant. She moved to New Jersey from North Dakota and brings our office a Midwestern charm and good humor. She has been working in the dental field for 13 years and loves her job. Her friendly personality and hard work are a pleasure to have here. On her free time she enjoys scrap booking and taking care of her 3 boys.
  Pat is a full-time receptionist who joined our practice a few months ago. She has over 25 years of dental experience in a few different offices. This experience gives her a broad range of knowledge that enables her to answer our patient’s questions about treatment and insurance issues. Her pleasant demeanor is very welcoming and relaxing.
  Eileen works part time at the front desk, and has worked in the dental field for about 33 years. She has been married for 44 years and has two children and 3 grandchildren. She enjoys spending time with her grandchildren, dancing, and watching the cooking channel.
  Charlene attended Camden County College and graduated on the Dean’s list. She is married and is the mother of three children and three grandchildren. She enjoys cooking, traveling, movies and plays. Charlene loves what she does because she feels like she has the ability to relax people with her gentle touch. Her patients always have a comfortable and positive experience.
