I’ve worked at Art & Science Dentistry for the last eight years and have enjoyed getting to know our patients. It is important to me that they receive the best dental care available in a friendly and professional atmosphere. I am the proud mom of two adult sons, Matthew and Thomas. In my spare time, I enjoy birdwatching, hiking, biking, gardening, reading, and creating textile artwork.

I have been working at Dr. Dautel’s office for almost 40 years, which has been a rewarding and enjoyable experience. I started as an assistant and I now work at our welcoming desk. I have enjoyed getting to know our patients inside and outside of the office. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family, especially our 4 grandchildren, and traveling.

For as long as I can remember, I always knew I wanted to work in healthcare, and dentistry has always been an interest of mine. The more I learn about this field and work in it, the more I fall in love with it. I truly enjoy interacting with my patients and working with them to improve their oral health, and I’m dedicated to providing them with the best possible care. When I’m not in the dental office, I enjoy spending my time where I was born and raised (in the Catskills) hiking, fishing, and spending time with my family and my 2 cats.

I’ve been in the dental field for about 14 years now, I started out as an assistant and then pursued dental hygiene. I enjoy developing a rapport with patients and getting to know them on a daily basis. When I’m not at work I enjoy baking, running, traveling, spending time with my 2 dogs and my family. My husband and I just welcomed a baby boy in September and I am step-mom to a sweet 9 year old girl.

I have been a dental assistant for the past 16 years, working in general dentistry as well as oral surgery, endodontics, periodontics, and pediatric dentistry. When I’m not in the dental office, I’m filling my time being a wife, mom, bonus-mom, and part-time photographer.

I have been working in the dental profession for 40 years, both in the front and back office. I’ve been working with Dr. Dautel for the past 17 years as a dental assistant, and I became a licensed dental assistant in 2017. I love working with patients in the clinical setting, helping to ensure their visit is as comfortable as possible and answering any questions or concerns about their visit. In my spare time, I love spending time with my grandchildren, baking, and taking long walks with my dog, Shaggy.
