Meet Our Team

Dr. Andrew Dubman
Dental Director
Dr. Andrew Dubman was born and raised in Essex County, NJ. He has family roots deeply embedded in practice of dentistry. Following in the footsteps of his father, and his uncle, Dr. Dubman has continued to provide his patients with the experience and care passed along to him from previous generations. Dr. Dubman received his Bachelor of Science from Monmouth College in 1987. A 1991 graduate of the University of Medicine and Dentistry, Dr. Dubman spent the next 10 years in clinical practice with his father, caring for patients throughout the state of NJ. As an avid fisherman, the lure of Barnegat Bay compelled Dr. Dubman to setup residence in Ocean County in 2001. When Eastern Dental of Lacey opened its doors in 2004, it was the perfect match. For Dr. Dubman, there is no greater pleasure than seeing one of his patients that was previously too self-conscious to smile, walk through the door grinning from ear to ear.
Dr. Michelle Bryant

Dr. Bryant prides herself on being a compassionate clinician who will only provide her patients with the best care in a respectful manner. Her desire to help people coupled with her dexterity is what guided Dr. Bryant to the field of dentistry. When she is not working hard to help her patients feel better, she can be found playing with her two young children. Specialty Permit: 5752
