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.
Chelsea has two little ones, so there’s no such thing as ‘down time,’but she does try to live our state motto, ‘The Way Life Should Be,’ year round; summering at Old Orchard Beach and wintering at Sugarloaf. She also fits right in with the rest of our office of animal fanatics with her cat, Ollie, and Zoey the rabbit.
