Meet the Team
We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice. We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you. ~Dr. Carcara and the Carcara Orthodontics Team.
Jennifer, our business manager, has been with Carcara Orthodontics since its inception in 2003, upon leaving her corporate communications career for the birth of her first daughter. She manages all financial and insurance matters, addresses marketing, communications and personnel matters, automates office processes, and ensures the office complies with all accepted business practices and government regulations. Jen enjoys satisfying all our patients’ needs while making them feel comfortable with their decision to join our orthodontic family. She loves helping to contribute to the success of our practice and its highly regarded position in the community as the premier orthodontic practice in Northern New Jersey.
When she is not working, Jen enjoys cooking, writing, and attending Yankee games with her husband and her three children (two daughters and a son) who are her pride and joy!
Nancy, our Office Manager, is responsible for the handling of all insurance in the office, and assisting our patients with any questions they might have about insurance, cost of treatment, and appointments. She is also a great help to the front office, Dr. Carcara, and the assistants in the operatories. Nancy has an extensive career in the dental field, and is trained in four-handed dentistry, orthodontic techniques, and dental radiology. While her technical skills are impeccable, the one-on-one personal time she spend with each patient is what really sets her apart. She very much enjoys working with children and adults as they progress through treatment.
Nancy has two amazing kids who are the joys of her life. She likes spending time outside, walking, working in the garden, and putting her toes in the sand at the beach whenever she can.

She provides all patients with oral hygiene instructions and is happy to answer any questions you may have.

When she’s not working, Jennifer enjoys spending time with her husband Kal and her two daughters who are their pride and joy!
