Meet Our Team

The dental team here at Vaccaro Aesthetic and Family Dentistry is composed of experienced, friendly professionals who strive to make your visit with us as pleasant and comfortable as possible. Our cosmetic dentist, Matthew Vaccaro, DDS, surrounds himself with genuinely compassionate and impeccably skilled individuals who treat all of our patients as though they were guests in their own home. 

Below, you will find brief biographies on many of the wonderful people you can expect to see at our practice. For more information on treatment options, or to schedule an appointment, please contact our office.  

Dawn Keimel, RDA – Registered Dental Assistant 

A graduate of County College of Morris, Dawn has been a dental assistant for over 30 years, with most of her career centered in cosmetic dentistry and periodontal care. She has had a lot of experience with geriatric and dental-phobic patients, providing comfort and explanations to help them through their procedures. Helping patients achieve their goal to smile and restore their mouth to a healthy state is her primary concern. By watching Dawn and Dr. Vaccaro work together, it is evident that they are an experienced, detail-oriented team who trust one another and work efficiently on every patient. 

When she is not in the office, she enjoys time with family and friends, visiting her sons in North Carolina and Colorado, dining out, listening to music, and volunteering in her hometown of Parsippany. Last year, she went on her first dental mission trip to a small village in the Amazon Jungle in Peru, where over 300 patients were treated. 

Renee Clemente-Centrone, RDH – Registered Dental Hygienist 

Renee has over 30 years of dental experience. She has worked in many areas of dentistry, which has given her much experience and knowledge to bring to the dental office. Renee is excited to say that she has been on the team since August, 2019. Her favorite part of being a hygienist is getting to know her patients and being able to educate them about how to better their oral health, and to make visiting the dental office a comfortable setting. 

Outside of work, Renee works at Lucy’s Non-Profit Gift store in Florham Park, for which she is the Director of Event Planning. Renee also enjoys time with her two children, being part of their activities and making many memories with them, as well as time with loved ones and family.  

Sharlene Komatsu, RDH – Registered Dental Hygienist 

Sharlene Komatsu, RDH is another one of our experienced dental hygienists. After graduating from the University of Medicine and Dentistry in 1989, Sharlene has been helping patients maintain their oral health ever since. In addition to her duties here at Vaccaro Aesthetic and Family Dentistry, Sharlene has been an Active Volunteer EMT since 2000. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, traveling with family, and spending time with her two adorable dogs.
