Meet the Staff

Cecelia has been in the dental field since she was sixteen years old and has always striven to increase her knowledge of the profession.  She graduated from SUNY Farmingdale in 1999, where she was inducted into the "Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society," and has been listed on the Dean's list.  Upon graduating, Cecelia was presented the Guggenheim Award for Clinical Excellence.

Following her graduation, Cecelia joined Dr. Melinski's staff in 1999, and she has shown a genuine affection for working with children of all ages.  She always strives to alleviate any apprehension that children might have about coming to the dentist.  She believes that, "the little things matter."

Cecelia lives locally and has proven both her loyalty and skill, for the duration of her time working here at Dr. Melinski's office. 

Cecelia is an Elton John fan, and she enjoys hiking, biking, kayaking, camping and flossing.
