“Our motto is, “Have fun while doing great work!” It’s all about working as a team to do the best for our patients and keep them relaxed. Everyone here helps each other.”

Mary has worked in the dental field since 1995, many of those years spent at Falmouth Dental Arts. For Mary, the dental care here is excellent in part because of the encouragement and support that staff members receive to take continuing education classes. “We’re constantly improving our knowledge,” she explains. “These courses help us to communicate well together, which is very important.” She also notes the importance of listening to patients and finding out about their past dental experiences so they will be more comfortable and receive the best treatment. “We explain things and show examples to our patients. I think this really helps them understand and feel more at ease. They’ll ask more questions,” she says. It’s also the transformations she witnesses that keep Mary so interested in dentistry. She enjoys helping people and seeing the results of a successful treatment. “I love knowing that our patients feel good about themselves afterward. They see the success, too.”

Mary graduated from the University of Maine at Farmington with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education. She is also a Certified Dental Assistant and holds an X-­ray Certification.

Married with two children and a cat, Mary stays active with her kids. She volunteers, organizes, and fundraises for sports and other school activities. Mary also enjoys snowmobiling and being at the lake with her family. When she has a moment to herself, Mary likes reading non­fiction and detective/murder­-mystery novels.
