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!
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!
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!
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!
