Registered Dental Hygienist
The best part of being a dental hygienist is working with people from all walks of life, learning about them over the years, and building great rapport. I believe the relationships that I create help patients to feel more relaxed and comfortable, because they know I genuinely care about them as people, not just as patients.
I began working in dentistry in 1996 when I graduated with my B.S. in dental hygiene from Northeastern University, and earned an advanced degree in dental hygiene from Forsyth Institute. I joined Dr. Seligman’s team in 2004. As an office, we hold ourselves to a higher standard to ensure that patients receive the greatest quality of dental care. We treat one another, and our patients, with respect.
I find a lot of satisfaction in helping people attain and maintain a confident, beautiful smile. Our office is a positive and supportive place, with everyone working together to provide the best dental care possible. That helps even the most timid patients feel safe in our care.
As a patient coordinator, I am the liaison between our patients and the office. I assist patients with scheduling, answer questions about treatment, and am otherwise focused on ensuring everyone has a stress-free, efficient visit.
When I’m not working, I enjoy the outdoors and love hiking and practicing yoga.
As one of our patient coordinators, I am responsible for scheduling patients, maintaining a full schedule, answering patients’ questions, and addressing their concerns. I love interacting with patients and helping them feel comfortable. My goal is to make their visits as pleasant as possible.
Here at Dr. Seligman’s office, there is a strong sense of teamwork and everyone is willing to give their best and support each other for the benefit of our patients. It makes for a positive environment for us all!
When I’m not in the office, I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends. My boyfriend and I are always looking for something new to do and new restaurants to try. I also enjoy painting, taking long walks, and exploring new areas.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I look forward to seeing and talking with my patients. I’ve known many of them for more than 20 years and they feel like family. Our practice strives for excellence every day by providing quality care that’s personalized to each patient’s needs and goals, and I love being part of this team.
I examine patients for signs of oral issues, including cavities and gum disease, and offer preventive dental hygiene care. I clean teeth through scaling and root planing and educate each patient on ways to improve and maintain optimal oral health.
Away from the office, my boyfriend and I love to cycle all over New England. We also love to snowshoe, weight train, ride fat tire bikes, and travel the world. We share our lives with a very fat cat (he weighs 25 pounds!), Harley Davidson.
I am happy to help patients achieve their goals of healthy, beautiful smiles through creative financing. Everyone at Seligman Dental Designs is pleasant to work with. We all believe in our mission, “To treat all of our patients in the exact manner we would like to be treated.”
My main focus is on the financial administration of the business office. I am also part of the front-office team, where we work to give patients the help, support, and encouragement they need to make their relationship with our office a WOW experience.
I’m married and have two sons, four grandchildren, and a Siamese cat named Arlo. My passion is cooking for my big Italian family and enjoying our vacations together. In my leisure time I love to garden, read, and play golf. I am also very involved in my church: I serve on several committees and reach out to newcomers in our community.
Insurance Coordinator and Dental Assistant
I like coming to work, where I see familiar faces and meet new people each day. It’s fulfilling to be part of a dental practice where we trust and support each other. That allows us to provide the strongest care and most positive atmosphere to our patient family.
I wear two hats in our office. As insurance coordinator, I handle filing and follow up on all insurance claims. I’m also a dental assistant and work in the clinic, where I assist Dr. Smith with periodontal procedures.
My husband and I have been married for more than 15 years. We have two wonderful daughters and a family dog.
I love interacting with people and believe all patients deserve quality, caring dentistry. I love the variety of my day; patients, and their smiles after a procedure, make me so happy! Everyone at Seligman Dental Designs is a team player. We treat each other with respect and support each other so we’re able to ensure great visits for our patients.
My main focus is assisting our dentists with treatment. I also work with patients, to provide education about their oral health, and support my coworkers with their tasks.
I’ve always been the type of person who seeks out and takes on new challenges and adventures. I have a passion for traveling, and learning about new cultures and foods. I love the outdoors and exploring New England with my fiancé and my dog, Ruffo. There’s always something to do here, whatever the season!
