Meet Our Staff
Kathy, Office Manager
I have been in the dental field since 1997 as a dental receptionist and office manager. I worked with Dr. Charland for four years in a practice in Keene, NH before becoming an employee here in January 2007. I enjoy working with people and feel my knowledge and experience in the financial area can help patients maximize their insurance benefits and/or qualify for payment plans so they may receive their dental care while staying within their financial budget. One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is my daily interaction with our patients and the positive treatment results they recieve from our caring Doctor and Staff.
Trisha, Administrative Assistant
I began working in the dental field in 1998. I really enjoy working with different people and getting to know them and their families. I understand the complexities of the dental insurance plans and enjoy working with our patients to help them understand the benefits their plans offer. I believe it is very important to make our patients feel at home when they are in our office, so that our patients are happy and comfortable , which is our goal.
Renee, Registered Dental Hygienist
I was raised in Keene, NH, where I began my dental career over 10 years ago. I graduated from Quinsigamond Community College, Worcester, MA, in 2006 as a Dental Hygienist. For the past ten years I have worked as both a Dental Assistant and a Hygienist. I am a member of the American Dental Hygiene Association. I feel it is important that our patients understand that their oral health is a critical component of their overall health. I believe that proper oral hygiene is the key to maintaining the dental health of the mouth. I enjoy informing our patients of the proper ways to maintain their teeth and gums for a healthier life.
