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!
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!
Licensed Dental Hygienist
I have been a dental hygienist for 11+ years. I graduated from the University of Bridgeport. I enjoy getting to know my patients, helping them with their dental concerns and educating them on the best home care for their needs.
I grew up in New Haven, but have been a resident of Naugatuck for the past 30 years. I have been married for 27 years and have 2 grown children, whom I adore. I am an animal lover, but dogs are my favorite.
When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. We love going for Jeep rides with our crew of seven other couples. I enjoy being creative with my baking and I am always looking for new ideas.
I look forward to meeting you all and helping with any dental hygiene concerns!
I graduated from the University of Bridgeport, majoring in Biology and Dental Hygiene. I furthered my studies and received a nutrition degree in Naturopathic Medicine. My love of health and how the body functions drew me to dental hygiene and my other majors. My hobbies are painting with watercolors and creative interior design, feng shui.
I graduated from Fones School of Dental Hygiene in Bridgeport. I am dedicated to a wholesome lifestyle and want to share this with my patients--focusing on a healthy smile! I enjoy cooking, spending time with my family, hiking and camping.
