Kim is one of our wonderful hygienists and we are so thankful for her bright spirit and happy heart. Each day she brings joy to our team and to our patients as she has a positive attitude in every situation. Her charisma with the kids and uncanny ability to connect with them and clean their teeth is something to behold. Her motto fits wonderfully with our mission as a dental office as she is constantly reminding and encouraging us with the words “go team!” Kim is always up for a challenge and she is committed to making you and your child’s experience with us positive and successful. Kim graduated from MWCC Hygiene School in 2014 and has since then worked full time in pediatrics, general practice, and with special needs patients in both Massachusetts and New Hampshire. She began with us in the Spring of 2018 and we couldn’t be more excited! Kim enjoys spending her free time at the beach, playing basketball, being fit, and hanging with friends.

These two qualities collide as she plans fun events and coordinates much for our community here in this office and with other surrounding offices and doctors.
