Christie

Christie

Dental Hygienist

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 boyfriend Scott and our boys.

Dental Hygienist

The conversations I have with our patients, as we talk about our lives and interests, and the relationships that develop, are why I look forward to coming to work each morning. The people we care for are fascinating, diverse individuals, and I always learn something new from each of them. As a hygienist, I spend a lot of my day offering patient education, helping each person learn the best ways to keep their mouth healthy between cleanings, how to make good decisions, and how to establish excellent habits that improve their oral health and overall health. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling.

Dental Hygienist

I work on a one-on-one basis with patients of all ages, proving preventive dental care, periodontal treatments, and hygiene instruction. The other aspect of my job is patient education; it's a vital aspect of keeping up good oral health habits at home, especially for children. I love working in a professional office where everyone has a positive attitude and is valued as a member of the team. We all bring different strengths to the table, working towards a common goal of excellence in patient care. I live in Strafford, New Hampshire with my husband Tyler and our 2 young children. We enjoy visiting the children's museum, playgrounds, and the beach as a family.

Good oral health with regular dental cleanings is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. I take the time to talk to my patients to see what is important to them. I want to help them reach their goals. We will discuss their unique situation and create a treatment plan tailored just for them. I enjoy being able to offer my patients the full spectrum of dental services available at our office. I love when pateints tell me that they enjoy coming to the dentist, mission accomplished! I live in Barrington with my husband Guy. We have two grown daughters and a son still at home. We enjoy staying active and love all things outdoors.

 
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.

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 Rochester, 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.

Our amazing patients, and the relationships we build with them, are so rewarding. Because we offer only painless dental care, and our doctors and team members are gentle in their approach, even timid patients soon learn that a visit to our office is nothing to worry about. In fact, many smile and hug us after their first visit, they’re so relieved to know that they’ve found a safe, compassionate dental practice. As our Insurance Coordinator, I work with each patient to make sure they’re getting the most from their dental benefits, and I develop the estimates so a patient has a good idea of what their care might cost before we start treatment. My husband Greg, our two sons, Zach and Alex, and I, live in Dover. I keep very busy with the boys’ sports schedules. Our family’s favorite place to be is at our camp, in Maine.
