I grew up in Rhode Island where I started my dental career as an assistant in 2005. It was then I had come to realize my true passion; give back to the community, and help educate patients on the benefits of having a healthy mouth so they can live an overall healthy life.
It has been astonishing to me that our society in the healthcare industry has been separating oral health from the rest of the body for decades up until now. When in fact everything is connected and needs to be treated as a whole! After my growing passion for dentistry and overall health, I decided to move to the lovely state of Maine where I attended the University of New England. There, I earned my bachelors degree in dental hygiene. I am also local anesthesia certified in which I utilize to help keep my patients comfortable during their treatment needs if at all necessary. I stay up to date with my education with continuing education courses. In my spare time, I enjoy reading other medical literature that helps me correlate my profession with my patients’ overall health.
Other than dental life, I enjoy spending time with my husband, stepson, 3 pups, and my two goats! I enjoy every season Maine has to offer, although spring and summer are my favorites as paddle boarding is my go to Zen time. The winter and fall months allow me to enjoy some extra kitchen time where I love baking and creating new dishes to enjoy with my family. I am fortunate to have become a team member with Dr. Vocal and the team. I look forward to meeting with you, building a friendly and professional relationship, all while educating and helping to implement possible changes that are needed to best suit your overall health. This is a passion, not a job, that’s what intrigues me to continuously strive in giving the best possible care, education, and experience to all my patients.
