Elizabeth Podbielski


I graduated from University of Bridgeport, Fones School of Dental Hygiene with a Bachelor’s of Science. I have been with the practice for over 20 years. I love connecting with my patients, trying to figure out together how we can take the time in our busy lives to care for our dental needs. After all, whole body health begins with a healthy mouth. I treasure watching your children grow from their first dental visits into high school and beyond becoming their own healthy beings. When I’m not spending time with family or at the beach with friends I might be planning my next adventure with my best friend and travel buddy.


Sharon Sternberg


Sharon is a graduate of the University of Bridgeport, Fones School of Dental Hygiene and has been with the practice for 15 years. It has been a wonderful experience for her to see local families grow throughout her years in the practice. Sharon is a proud Mom to two teenage daughters. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends.

I was so excited to join Dr. Kumar’s friendly and welcoming staff. I am a graduate of Porter and Chester Dental Assisting program and certified in radiology. You will find me in the treatment rooms assisting Dr. Kumar or making sure whoever needs help gets it. Having been here a year I can confidently say I love working with Dr. Kumar. She has taught me so much, and her work is always flawless. I also enjoy working with Kate, Liz and Sharon. In my free time I like to spend time with my family, hang out with my friends (dinner, shopping, movies), and I love to travel. One day I would love to go to Dubai.
