Team Member - Katie


I was born and raised in Berks County, and I am a graduate of Salem Christian School. I received my dental assistant degree at Berks Career and Technology Center and later took the state board exam to become a Certified Dental Assistant (CDA). I began working in the dental field as a dental assistant in 2010 and found that I loved it so much I decided to continue my education and become an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant (EFDA). I attended Harcum College in 2015. With this new degree I now have the opportunity to do additional duties, including placing fillings. I joined the Brookside Dental team July of 2016 and absolutely love working and being part of the team here. One of my favorite parts of my job is being able to work with truly amazing and wonderful people who share the desire to take great care of their patients. I love how rewarding my job is. I am able to connect with my patients and enjoy making their time with us a pleasant experience. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband and our beautiful daughter. We love being outdoors and playing with our dog, Max.

I grew up in the Lehigh Valley and graduated from Emmaus High School. I married my husband in 1990 and we have raised two beautiful kids. After attending Northampton Community College, I received a degree in dental hygiene and have been working for Brookside Dental Care since 2014. It has been a pleasure working with an incredibly caring team who makes the patients’ needs a top priority. I also love building relationships with our patients and helping them to achieve a healthy smile.

I earned my dental hygiene degree in 2010 from Northampton Community College. I am happily married to my wonderful husband George. When I am not at work, I enjoy bible volunteer work, spending time with friends and family, decorating and cooking. My favorite part of my job is helping my patients to improve their dental hygiene and developing a lasting relationship with them. I feel truly blessed to work with such an amazing friendly and caring team of doctors and staff at Brookside Dental Care.

Team Member - Cody


After attending Kutztown University for my college education, I began a career in the weight loss industry. I managed a team for almost 8 years until the company I worked for closed. In 2008 I sought a field in which I could continue to help patients and utilize my managerial skills to help an office grow. I was fortunate enough to find that Dr. Hadian was in need of a front desk individual. It was one of the best choices I’ve ever made. I have been fortunate as well in my personal life. I have been in a relationship my husband since 1996, and we have two beautiful little girls and three dogs to keep us busy.

Team Member - Jen


I was born and raised in Allentown and am a graduate of Dieruff High School. I excelled at team sports, my favorite of which were cheerleading and track and field. In 1999 I married my husband Tom, and we have been happily married ever since. In our spare time we enjoy spending time with our dog Ozzy. Personally I enjoy shopping, relaxing, and going to Penn State football games. I have worked in dentistry since 2004 and joined Dr. Hadian in 2012. I really enjoy working for Dr. Hadian, and I find it so rewarding being part of such a great team that always puts the care and needs of our patients first. My position allows me to meet with our patients and help them understand the importance of a healthy smile.

Team Member - Latasha


I received my hygiene degree in 2001 from Northampton Community College. In 2008 I also received my Public Health Dental Practitioner license. This license allows me to provide hygiene services in a public setting to those in the community who are underserved. One day a week I go to elementary schools to apply sealants and education to children who may not see a dentist. I am an active member of my church and enjoy partaking in our dance ministries and praise team. I married my high school sweetheart and am a mother to four wonderful children. My mission in life is to be a positive influence to my family and those who come in contact with me.

Team Member - Brandy


I’m one of the dental hygienists in the office. I’ve been part of the Brookside Dental Care team since 2007. I am also licensed in local anesthesia, and I was one of the first to be licensed when it became available in Pennsylvania. I take pride in caring for my patients, many of whom have become like a part of my own family. I have two beautiful daughters and enjoy taking part in various 5K and 10K races around the area. I am a native of beautiful Northern Pennsylvania and look forward to spending many more years with all of the wonderful staff and patients here at Brookside Dental Care.

Team Member - Leah


My name is Leah Hadian. I have been a dental assistant since 1991. I trained in Newnan, Georgia, which is where I’m from. I worked there for 9 years, and I’ve worked for Dr. Hadian ever since. I did take 6 and 1/2 years off to be with our daughter Brooke. I have two wonderful stepsons named Naveed and Grant. I enjoy dentistry. I find it to be constantly changing to make dental care more comfortable and efficient for our patients. Here at Brookside Dental Care we have a great team that works well together due to the respect we have for one another. We are one big happy family. This is true with our patients as well. We always try to create an inviting atmosphere. That, along with our state-of-the-art facility and newest technology, makes me feel that this is what sets us apart from other practices. I’m very proud to be a part of this wonderful practice.

Team Member - Neda


I moved to the United States in 1978 at the age of 12 with my parents and two younger brothers, one of whom is Dr. Hadian. After high school I attended Lock Haven University, where I studied early childhood education. I then went on to pursue a career in cosmetology and attended Gorden Phillips Beauty Academy. There I received my license to be a stylist and cosmetology teacher. I worked as a stylist for 15 years before becoming a stay-at-home mom. I am so proud to be the mother of two beautiful girls. I’ve now worked for Brookside Dental Care since 2009 and love working with my brother, sister-in-law, and the rest of the amazing staff at Brookside Dental Care.
