Meet The Staff



Gwendolyn Sarnicola – Registered Dental Hygienist and Treatment Plan Coordinator

I joined the team at New York Dental in 2018. Graduated from SUNY Broome in 2009 and licensed in the state of New York and Florida. I constantly continue my knowledge and skills with continued education. Answering patients’ questions about treatment or anxiety to ease is what I do best. About myself, I married the love of my life in July 2021. He happened to be a dentist so dental talk is what we do best! We have a dog named Elton and a kitty named Sisters. Golf, gardening, traveling, and spending time with family and friends is what we love. Ask for me personally and I will be happy to plan that smile you have always dreamed of.

She commutes daily from the wooded hills of Northeast PA. Although she spends so much of her life in Broome County, she considers herself a local. A woman of short stature and good humor, Lillian enjoys reading and writing fantasy fiction, spoiling her many pets, and painting miniature figurines. Diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus in 2006, Lillian advocates for a better understanding of and personal involvement in your own health, which drives her to help her patients improve their oral health.

 Megan Zorovic – Dental Hygenist 

I joined the New York Dental team in 2021. My hometown is Horseheads, NY. I enjoy spending time with my husband, Matthew and our dog, Ruger. I spend most of my free time outside hunting, fishing or at my family’s lake house. I also enjoy crafting and doing renovations on our new home. My favorite part about being a Dental Hygienist is that I get to help patients who have anxiety feel more relaxed during treatment.

I graduated from SUNY Broome Dental hygiene program in 2008.  I enjoy talking with patients about the importance of dental care, oral health and always strive to do my best to help educate them.  When I am not working, my husband and I enjoy road trips and rock crawling. My most prized possessions in life are our two furbabies Waily and Asche.
