Kristen has been working in the oral healthcare field for over 20 years now, having spent over half of that time right here at our dental office. She also has advanced training in dental implants and oral surgery! Today, she truly loves working alongside the other members of her team. Helping patients and seeing how happy they are once the treatment process is complete is always a wonderful experience.
Kristen and her husband Marc have two beautiful daughters named Skylar and Savanah. Some of her favorite hobbies include baking, watching Savanah play softball, interior decorating, and simply spending time with loved ones.
Originally from New Bedford, Megan studied dental assisting at the Bristol Plymouth Technical School. Today, she is our dedicated dental office manager, always going above and beyond to help make patients happy, whether that comes from their new, improved smile or simply having a pleasant conversation with the team!
At home, Megan has an amazing husband named Frank and a beautiful, smart, and witty daughter named Aurora. In her free time, you can often find her taking pictures (mostly of Aurora), doing arts and crafts, shopping, jet skiing, planning parties, and simply being around water.

Lead Dental Hygienist
When it comes to her favorite part of this job, Michelle thinks it’s a toss-up between seeing her fabulous patients every day and working in a dental office that performs such amazing dentistry! She hails from New Bedford and has been a part of the oral healthcare world for over three full decades so far.
Outside of the dental office, Michelle has a wonderful boyfriend named Jeff, a son named Matthew who plays football and is an avid hunter, and a daughter named Jillian who is currently studying to be a medical assistant while also playing softball. A lot of her spare time is spent caring for her elderly parents, but some of her favorite hobbies include camping, walking, biking, hiking, sewing, knitting, and playing a decent game of pool on occasion.
Here at our dental office, Michelle couldn’t ask for better patients and team members! A New Bedford native, she has been a part of the dental world for well over a decade so far.
At home, Michelle and her husband Joe have a beautiful puppy named Autumn. When she has free time, you can typically find her gardening, shopping, decorating, or hiking with her dog. She’s definitely a BIG animal lover.
Samantha has been a part of our team for over five years so far, and she loves that each day is a brand-new experience! Her career always has wonderful opportunities for growth too, and she couldn’t be more grateful for that. In addition to being a hygienist, she also works as a pharmacy technician part-time.
In her free time, Samantha loves hanging out with her husband and their tiny dog Zeus. When she isn’t walking or playing with the pup, she also regularly does yoga, cooks, and enjoys the outdoors. She and her husband regularly take road trips to hike New Hampshire trails and any new path they can find! Their ultimate goal is to eventually see every state and hike through all of the main national parks.
