He studied at Seton Hall University and has also attended courses in dental management and leadership at the Scheduling Institute in Georgia.
Brandon is actually Dr. Lacap and Dr. Tong’s oldest son, and he serves as a “Jack of All Trades” throughout the office – in fact, you might see him filling in for nearly any position! In his free time, he enjoys going on hikes, practicing art, and snowboarding.
Ayesa, Team Lead
Originally from Palisades, Ayesa earned her education from Binghamton University. She really enjoys working with all kinds of people here at the practice and making sure patients feel genuinely comfortable in the treatment chair!
Outside of the practice, Ayesa spends her free time exploring New York City with friends and family and baking treats. Her favorite type of desert to make is cookies and cream cupcakes.

With a warm and friendly smile, Dan is there to make sure all our patients receive a five-star experience. Prior to being a hygienist, Dan was an ice hockey coach in Maryland for 5 years! When not in the office, you can find Dan outdoors with his wife and two children.
