Rita has worked with Dr. Weiss since 1986. Working as one with Dr. Weiss, she seemingly has telepathic ability to know the next step for all of Dr. Weiss’s procedures. Besides troubleshooting the inevitable computer issues that occur in our office, Rita coordinates operations with the laboratories and shipping companies. Her sharpness keeps the office running smoothly and her concern for our patients’ comfort and outcome is unparalleled and recognized by all. Our patients and Dr. Weiss respect Rita’s skills and talents.

Gale has worked with Dr. Weiss since 1989. She goes above and beyond in welcoming all of our patients to the office. Before each patient arrives, she ensures they are prepared to bring anything Dr. Weiss or Courtney might need for that visit. Gale ensures that each patient is comfortable, from checking that any necessary forms are filled out, to having a nice beverage or reading material in our reception area. Her strongest and one of her most impressive traits is the time and energy she spends in helping patients maximize their insurance benefits. Gale is very sensitive to both our patients’ needs and Dr. Weiss’s needs during scheduling for visits. Gale’s loyalty, honesty, and hard work are the qualities anyone would love to have at the “gate” of their office.
Gale knew whatever career she embarked on would include helping people. Working for Dr. Weiss has given her that opportunity. Every day she’s excited to come to work. Gale said, “Dr. Weiss is such an excellent dentist as well as a caring and compassionate human being. He has created an office that is very pleasant to come to. Our office treats people the way we want to be treated.” She also loves that they work as a team and knows all her co-workers are there for each other.
Gale and her husband Robert married in 2004. They have two children, Seth and Shari. Both are married to wonderful people. She and Robert now have three grandchildren, Rebekah, Sophia, and Benjamin, that bring great joy to their lives. While Rebekah likes to play soccer. Sophia is into dance. However, they both play the cello. Benjamin enjoys playing the viola and loves his Nintendo Switch, Legos, and Pokemon. When Gale isn’t spending time with her wonderful family, she loves to go on cruises and enjoy game night with friends, especially Mahjong.
Courtney is a graduate of Manor College’s Dental Hygiene Program. She has been practicing dental hygiene since 2014. Courtney has been a shining star in our practice. She is very thorough and able to adjust her treatment technique to each patient—offering the gentlest dental cleaning possible. In conjunction with Dr. Weiss, Courtney has created virtual smiles on the computer for patients who are considering improving their appearance so they can see a preview of their smile makeover.
Every day we hear patients say about Courtney, “That was the best cleaning I ever had. You must keep her, Dr. Weiss.” If you ask Dr. Weiss about Courtney, he will also tell you that she is incredible. She is the finest teacher/communicator for our patients that Dr. Weiss could ever hope for.
Courtney has been married to her husband, Rob, since 2018. They have two dogs — Piper (a pit/border collie) and Max (a German shepherd/husky). When she’s not hanging out with friends and family, Courtney loves to travel, go to the beach, and read. Professionally, what she finds most fulfilling is when patients take her recommendations and adapt them to their homecare regimen. She can always see the improvement on their next visit!
