I love interacting with my patients, becoming a part of their lives, and making them feel comfortable during their visit. Because I work so closely with our patients, I get to know them and I really enjoy the friendships that develop. My job duties include providing preventive dental care, administering local anesthetics and nitrous oxide, performing periodontal treatments, and treatment planning. I also help my patients’ understand how best to keep their teeth and gums clean and healthy between visits. I reside in Milton with my husband Scott and our boys.

 
Nicole

Nicole

Dental Hygienist

I love getting people excited about their oral hygiene. When someone understands the connection between great oral health and a healthy body, and they start making real changes in their home care, habits, and food and drink decisions, I know I’ve done well. They’re not only going to have less oral problems in the future, but they’re going to have healthier lives. I offer preventive care, am certified to deliver nitrous oxide and local anesthesia, provide periodontal treatment and maintenance, and sealants. I live in Gonic with my two daughters Ahlyvia and Savannah, and our two dogs Romeo and Juliet.

I work each and every day to help my patients make improvements to their oral and overall health by providing cleanings, taking X-rays, and offering patient education.

Everyone here is so helpful and friendly, and a real pleasure to work with.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my nephew and niece, and my boyfriend! I enjoy traveling, landscape photography, kayaking, playing games, and the occasional night out to do karaoke!

The best part of my job is when a patient comes in very nervous or anxious, and they leave completely relaxed and at ease due to the quality of care we have provided. Seeing their smiles, and hearing their thanks, is a great feeling. I assist our doctors, chairside, while they care for patients. I also take impressions, design CEREC restorations, and make Essix retainers and mouthguards, as well. My husband Seth and I live in Wakefield, with our son, Hank and two dogs, Darby and Frankie.

Working closely with our patients to give them a great experience, and getting to know them in the process, are the best parts of my job. I feel particularly fulfilled when a nervous or fearful patient comes to us and we’re able to help them learn that they needn’t worry about a visit here, because we’re so gentle. I provide assistance to our doctors as they perform dental procedures, and I’m there for the patient, keeping them comfortable, updating them on what the doctor is doing, and providing encouragement and distraction when needed. It’s great to help such wonderful people every day. When I’m not here at the office, I’m spending time with my husband Brandon, our daughter Shelby, and our German Shepard, Elsa. I enjoy going to the beach and spending as much time outside as I possibly can.
