By the time I was in high school I knew I wanted to be in the dental field. My goal has always been to advance in my career and become a dental hygienist. I thought the best way to step into the dental field was by becoming a dental assistant first. In 2014 I started a nine-month dental assisting program at Porter and Chester Institute in Woburn. By 2015 I had completed the program and earned certificates in radiology and infection control and began my first job as a dental assistant. Now seven years later, I am thrilled to be a part of the Divine Smiles team. I look forward to continuing my education and hopefully one day becoming a dental hygienist.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
My favorite thing to do in my spare time is to spend time with my dogs (a lab and an Italian greyhound). We enjoy going for walks and going to the dog park. In addition, I love being able to spend time with my husband, family, and friends. I also enjoy photography with any extra time I may have, I have photographed everything from engagement photoshoots to just some beautiful landscapes.
What made you want to be a Dental assistant?
Growing up I had an extreme fear of the dentist. Many would probably be shocked I am in the field today. But my fear of the dentist had only encouraged me to go into the field and help others through the same fear. I take pride in providing a comfortable environment for those who may be extra fearful of the dentist.
