I like welcoming people to our practice and helping them get great dental treatment. Some people are worried about seeing the dentist, but we offer painless care in a safe and reassuring space. It’s a good feeling when a previously fearful patient is smiling at the end of a visit. I handle various clerical matters and am always available to answer questions.

I enjoy becoming friends with our patients, and seeing their smiling faces when they arrive for their appointments. Even people who used to fret about going to the dentist soon learn that this is a safe, pain-free office, and look forward to coming to see us. I welcome patients when they arrive, answer any questions they might have, and perform a variety of clerical tasks.

Denise

Registered Dental Hygienist

I love working with our wonderful patients! I started working here in 1979 and have built many long-term relationships with our patients and their families over the years. It’s so rewarding to build friendships with people in our community and help them improve their smiles and dental health. Our team is full of compassionate people focused on providing great care to each patient. I work with new patients and help assess and treat their dental needs, provide treatment for patients during their recall appointments, place sealants, and also coordinate periodontal therapy. I like to spend time with my husband traveling, helping the elderly, and often enjoy spending time at our shore house!

After many years of dedicated service to our patients, Denise retired March of 2017.

Registered Dental Hygienist

I enjoy working one-on-one with our patients, to assess their oral health and deliver the best care to improve their dental hygiene. While I clean teeth, offer periodontal therapy, and apply fluoride, I talk with patients about their mouth. Helping people understand why it’s important to keep their oral cavity in great shape, and how best to do that, is my passion. I love healthy smiles!

 

Lauri

Lauri

Registered Dental Hygienist

I love getting to know each patient, and discovering how I can best help them with their dental needs. Each person is unique, and that means I have to learn about their life and oral health goals in order to find the home dental hygiene processes and products that are right for their situation. I take dental X-rays, clean patients’ teeth, and offer dental education to each person.

Registered Dental Hygienist

I like knowing I make a difference in my patients’ lives. Not only do I clean their teeth, but I provide the information they need to improve their oral hygiene and quality of life. While I work with patients, I talk with them about the health of their mouth, and discuss their hobbies and habits. Together, we identify the home-care routines that will keep their smile healthy and beautiful.

 

Brenna

Registered Dental Hygienist

I enjoy interacting with patients and developing a treatment plan unique to each person. Having my patients understand the connection between oral health and total health is one of my top priorities. It makes my day when my patients leave with a fresh outlook on their homecare. In my spare time I love spending time my husband and sons.

 

 

Melissa

Registered Dental Hygienist

I am happiest when I’ve established a trusting relationship with a patient. It’s truly an honor to help each person improve their oral health, and I take the responsibility seriously. I provide comfortable, thorough dental hygiene treatment while educating patients. I help them understand the connection between a healthy mouth and body, and how to achieve both.

Expanded Function Dental Assistant.

I love working with our patients. They’re all such wonderful people, and I enjoy hearing about each person’s interests, hobbies, and their family. Those conversations are the highlight of my day. I help patients throughout their visit: I bring them into the clinic area, prepare them for treatment, and provide chairside support to the patient and doctor.

 

Wendy

Wendy

Dental Assistant

I love our patients and how different each person is. Because of that, no two days are the same and I’m always learning something new. I develop great friendships with patients as I assist them during their visits. While our doctors are performing dental procedures, I sit chairside. I make sure our patient is comfortable and relaxed, and tell them what the doctor is doing.

 

Stephanie

Dental Assistant

I am so happy to be a part of the wonderful Cocalico Dental team! I am here to make sure the needs of our patients and the doctors are met during each procedure or visit, whether I’m preparing patient rooms for appointments or informing a patient on their planned treatment. I love meeting new people every day; it makes each day different and exciting! When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, being outdoors, fishing, and going to the mountains.

 

 

Amanda

Dental Assistant

The most rewarding part about being a dental assistant is giving back to the community and those in need. It’s a great feeling to give patients a new, healthy smile and see them have the confidence to show off their bright smile once again. It's a pleasure to work with the team because everyone ensures that patients have the best dental treatment possible. Everyone is passionate about educating patients on their oral health and dedicated to helping them maintain a healthy smile. In my free time, I enjoy being outdoors with my three dogs and going for hikes, going to the beach, and spending time with family and friends.
