“Everyone at FDA really cares – about patients and each other – and that’s what makes it work. When your co-workers create a comfortable environment for you then you can make it more comfortable for your patients in turn. It makes for a very warm and caring atmosphere.”

Mirela has worked in the dental field since 2003, joining the Falmouth Dental Arts team in May 2017. She has worked in pediatric dentistry for most of this time, which lends her a unique perspective on dentistry. “Anyone can be afraid of going to the dentist – not just children,” she shares. “That’s why we do everything we can here at FDA to make patients feel comfortable and relaxed while they’re in our chairs.”

At Falmouth Dental Arts, you can find Mirela providing chairside assistance, handling anything from whitening procedures to laboratory duties. “Working here is definitely different from any other practice, and our doctors who are very supportive of ongoing learning. I’ve already learned so much from the team since joining the practice and I’ve enjoyed getting to know our patients. Everyone is encouraging and helpful.” She also provides language support for the team with her fluency in Albanian and Greek.

Mirela spends much of her free time with her husband, son, and daughter, often cooking and sending food to her daughter, who is attending college. She enjoys snowshoeing with her husband and their black lab/boxer mix named Lola in winter, and relaxing at the lake when it is warm enough.
