I have been lucky enough to live in the South Shore area my entire life. In my younger years, I attended Boston Latin School and then graduated from Tufts University cum laude with a B.A. degree in Psychology. From there, I decided to continue my education at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, where I received an award in outstanding performance for special care in dentistry. I do feel that my psychology degree, has helped me in treating many patients dealing with dental anxiety. Most patients compliment my bedside manner and appreciate my small, lightweight hands. I am proud to say I have treated the same patients continually. And I am honored when they entrust me with the care of their family members and loved ones. When I’m not taking care of my patients, I enjoy spending time with my husband and children, Ethan and Emily.
I began my dental journey in 2012, when I graduated from Porter and Chester’s dental assisting program. I spent 5 years assisting a wide range of dental specialists and gained understanding of all their procedures. Along with clinical training, I became knowledgeable in the administrative side of the dental office. In 2017, I joined Dr. Do at Evergrin Dental as her Office Manager. Now, I find my main goal is patient advocacy and building strong personal relationships with our patients. At Evergrin Dental, your dental experience starts and ends with me. It is imperative to me, that our patients feel comfortable and at ease from start to finish. We all work together, as a cohesive unit, to make sure every patient’s experience is one of excellence. And I try my best every day to lead by example. During our time off, I love going on adventures and spending with my daughter, Mariah.
My dental career began in 1996, when I graduated from the Forsythe School for Dental Hygiene. Since then, I have dedicated myself in the care of others, specifically in their oral health. I have been with Evergrin Dental since 2018. My number one goal as a hygienist is educating my patients on the importance of proper oral hygiene and health. I love getting to know all my patients, professionally and personally, and treat them as if they were one of my family members. I truly enjoy working one on one with each patient and I hope my educating leaves a mark on the importance of optimal oral hygiene and wellness. Dr. Do is an incredible dentist to work for and leads the office in example for high quality service and compassion. When I am not working, I enjoy long walks, yoga and spending time with my family.
Once I received my Bachelor’s from the University of Massachusetts Boston, I found myself wanting a career in helping others. Dental Assisting seemed like the perfect choice, since you not only help improve patients’ health but also their self-esteem. It’s important to me to make sure every patient is comfortable in the chair and receiving the best dental treatment available. I love the ability dentistry has to transform a person’s life through their smile. When I am not working, I enjoy shopping and spending time with friends and family.
