Serving Lewiston & Auburn, Maine
We are a team of highly trained, compassionate, licensed dental professionals who look forward to welcoming you into our dental family. Our office is located in the heart of Lewiston, Maine, an old Franco-American mill town. We are conveniently positioned on a major artery (Route 126) and the building we’re in was once Friendly’s restaurant. We don’t serve up ice cream, but we do serve up smiles! (Read more about our move to 471 Sabattus Street.)
We’re very fortunate to be surrounded by such a diverse group of local business professionals, educational institutions, and cultural venues. We often stroll the Bates College campus and Thorncrag Bird Sanctuary when we want to get out of the office and take a walk during lunch in the warmer months!
Our goal is to listen, educate and help every one of our patients, regardless of their oral condition and income level, to achieve and maintain a healthy, stable mouth as well as a smile to be proud of.
You can also watch this video to get to know us a bit more, and be sure to check out our blog, too.
In a society that is becoming increasingly homogenized and corporate, our office strives to build a relationship with every single person who sits in one of our chairs. Give us a call at (207) 782-5308 or contact us online to schedule an appointment. We look forward to meeting you!
Dr. Drews is a Michigan native and played College Football (go Spartans!) while he obtained an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from Michigan State University (which has actually proven to be very relevant as a dentist). He worked in the automotive industry for four years, before going on to obtain a Doctoral degree in Dentistry from the University of Michigan (go Wolverines!).
Dr. Lake is a life long New Englander. She matriculated from the University of Connecticut’s School of Dental Medicine in 2008 and has been practicing dentistry in her home state of Maine ever since. She is actively involved in her profession and currently serves on the Maine Dental Association’s Executive Board, and has been the Chair for the Council on Government Relations since 2014, the responsibilities of which include providing testimony to legislators at both the local and national level. She is also an avid consumer of continuing education.
Chelsea is as ‘Maine” as lobster and L.L. Bean. She graduated from Lewiston High School and initially started her career working in childcare. However, she had multiple family members who were in the dental field and they encouraged her to take classes in assisting. She never looked back and has now been working in dentistry since 2008. One of the things that she enjoys about working in a general dental office is getting to build relationships with patients – it’s not just about how often you floss or if there’s a cavity – which also explains why Chelsea likes working with children and older patients. Her favorite dental procedures are anterior fillings (a.k.a. the front ‘smile teeth’), because it’s instant gratification for her to see a patient feel 100% more confident about themselves when they leave the office. She said it’s like watching them open a present that they’ve been […]
Kayla is a several-generations-back Lewistonian, so you could actually be related to her, or know someone that is. She is a graduate of the Dental Careers Institute and started working in dentistry in 2011, where she gained extensive clinical and administrative experience. She is a Dental Assistant, with a special interest in Endodontics and assists both Dr. Drews and Dr. Lake. Her clinical background also makes Kayla an excellent point person to help patients with scheduling, treatment planning, and coordinating dental benefits as well as providing patients with esthetic consultations and chairside whitening. A true Mainer, Kayla ice fishes, can shoot a rifle and owns six pairs of L.L. Bean boots. And while she has a 7-lb chihuahua and a 55-lb golden chow mix at home, she admits to being fascinated with bigger and ‘bitey-er’ things, which is why shark cage diving is at the top of her bucket list.
Emilie is our director of first impressions and is the friendly face who greets you when you walk through the door. Any help that you could possibly need with appointments, account information, or games on the I-Pad in our waiting room are all in her domain of expertise. Her most important role (at least for our younger patients) is ‘keeper of the quarters’ – so if you did a good job during your appointment, she has the authority to award quarters for the gumball machine. She’s also trained as a dental assistant, so don’t be surprised if you happen to see her smiling down at you, chairside. Originally from the Turner area, Emilie is a 100% hometown girl of central Maine. However, she admits to preferring the coast, taking her camera to a quiet, rocky shore during the summer. As far as the long, Maine winter snow goes, her only […]
Disa has lived in South Africa, Namibia, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and England prior to moving to the United States for graduate school and is a little confused about where she is actually “from”. She has ten years of experience working in social services and grew up with a father who is a dentist, so she is very comfortable working with our patients and actually likes the smell of a dental office- you might even occasionally see her filling in chair side.
Diane has been a Minot-Lewiston-Wales, Maine native all of her life- although she does admit to wanting to become a “snow bird”. She has worked in the dental field since 1999, but can easily relate to patients because she is not a fan of going to the dentist herself. In the office, Diane helps you to understand dental benefits and eligibility, review treatment plans, and determine coverage and payment options.
Matt was born and raised in Auburn, Maine, but has travelled to West Virginia, the Carolinas, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Iowa, Oklahoma, Missouri and Nebraska touring with his band “The Young Lungs.
However, until they are picked up by a major record label, Matt has been pursuing a more stable career in the dental field since 2009.
Karey is a Lewiston local, and a graduate from the University of Maine, Orono and has been working as a Registered Dental Hygienist since 1997. She is certified in the administration of local anaesthetic and the application of protective sealants. Karey has a great, laid-back personality and her infectious laugh is immediately recognizable from any room in the office.
Mindy is a native of Maine and a graduate of Westbrook College She has been working as a Registered Dental Hygienist since 1994. She is certified in the administration of local anaesthetic and the application of protective sealants. Mindy likes working at our office because of the strong emphasis that is put on continuing education and professional development.
A native Maine-ah, Megan spent a lot of time in dental offices as a teenager and has been working in the dental field since 2001, gaining a broad range of experience in general practice, endodontics, and denturism. Her original plan was to go to hygiene school, but in 2008 she graduated from Ontario’s George Brown College as a Licensed Denturist. When assisting chair side, Megan finds root canals to be the most interesting procedure and loves watching the process of broken-down teeth transform into “something pretty” through crown and bridge work. Her favorite patients are ‘older’ ladies because they always have such a fun sense of humor. Outside the office Megan spends her time running around after her 3 children (aka the monkeys) and the rest of her menagerie (including a dog, a cat, a ferret, and a snake). She actually enjoys Maine winters and used to spend her free […]
Angela graduated from the University of New England in 2008 with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene. She brings with her many years of experience from working in dental offices in both Massachusetts and Maine. Growing up, Angie always wanted to be a dental hygienist. She loved going to the dentist as a little girl, mainly because her cousin was the hygienist, and she got to touch and play with all of the instruments. Her favorite patients are the ones who are outgoing and looking to learn, because she also really enjoys doing patient education. A veteran of digital dentistry, her superpower is that she can take a Full Mouth Series x-ray in under 7 minutes. When she’s not scaling, planing and educating chair side, Angie maintains a fast-paced social schedule, regardless of Maine’s weather. You’ll often find her training for and running marathons, following the Pittsburgh Penguins hockey […]
