Protecting Our Patients

Meet the Team

 

 

 

 

Karen

Dental Hygienist

I enjoy talking and laughing with patients, and building relationships while helping them achieve their healthiest smiles. It’s important that a patient understands what’s happening in the mouth and how that affects overall health. I want patients to have healthy smiles and bodies!

Working with the patient, I update the medical history, examine the mouth for signs of dental disease, and take X-rays. I also perform periodontal screenings and offer gentle, thorough dental cleanings. A lot of my time with a patient is focused on education: teaching the person how to keep their smile clean and healthy!

Much of my time off is spent with my husband John, and our cat, Chester. I also love practicing yoga!

Jazmine

Dental Assistant

I am always aware of our patient’s comfort and will do everything I can to ensure a painless, stress-free visit. I promise that Dr. Mikaitis is a truly gentle dentist: she’ll go slowly and make sure the patient is feeling relaxed and safe while here.

I welcome and seat patients, prepare them for their treatment, and take impressions and X-rays. Working chairside, I assist Dr. Mikaitis while supporting our patient and checking that they’re comfortable. I also handle inventory and work at our front desk: answering the phones and confirming appointments. I’m glad to make a difference in someone’s dental experience and love seeing a happy smile at the end of visit.

When I’m not working, I enjoy baking and spending time with my beautiful, loving family. I love my football team: the New England Patriots!

Dawn B.

Front Desk Coordinator / Certified Dental Assistant

I enjoy working in the dental field!  I enjoy talking to the patients and making them feel welcome!

I have 8 years experience as a Certified Dental Assistant and Front Desk Administrative Assistant--answering phones, scheduling appointments, submitting insurance claims and patient billing.  I also like assisting the doctor, chairside.  It is great to be able to be a a part of both office positions.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband of 38 years.  We have 2 children and 5 grandchildren.  I love time with my family, playing Bingo, watching Giants football and dinners with friends!

Malissa

Licensed Dental Hygienist

I have been a dental hygienist for 21 years.  I graduated from the University of New Haven.  I enjoy my career and working with patients, getting to know them and helping them achieve a healthy smile!  I keep up with continuing education to stay current on the most effective treatment and practices.

I am originally from West Haven;  I have lived in Milford for the last 18 years, with my husband, Joe, and our 3 daughters.  Two are in high school and my youngest is in middle school.  They love softball, basketball, gymnastics and swimming.  My girls grew up with boating, and we as a family spend most of the summer on the water.  We boat, fish, paddleboard and kayak.

Other things I like to do, when I am not working, are walking in my neighborhood or hiking trails with my family and friends.  I have a bulldog, Dozer, that if he is in the mood, will come along with me too.  I enjoy time with my family and friends, going to dinner and cooking at home.

I look forward to meeting you and working with you for all of your dental hygiene needs!
