Renee is another homegrown Mainer, and graduate of Edward Little High School. Her journey to working in the dental field was sparked as a teenager, when she came out of braces, because it changed her smile (and her life). She completed Dental Assisting school that same year and hasn’t looked back.
Not many people describe oral surgery as “fun”, but Renee’s favorite procedure is actually extractions; because they can all be so different. That said, her ideal patients to work with are the ‘little old ladies,’ because they make her feel like she is spending time with her own meme. Given her fun, laid-back personality, it makes sense that one of the things she likes most about being here is the atmosphere, because it’s professional, without being too “prim and proper.” Which makes her a perfect fit for us, too.
Unlike 80% of the rest of the office, she is a big fan of Winter and spends much of it either snowmobiling up in Rangely or snowboarding at Lost Valley and Sunday River. The rest of the year she is camping, hiking, fishing and hunting, she shoots deer, coyote, turkey, and partridge, as well as skinning, prepping and cooking what she catches – she is definitely someone you would want on your side in a zombie apocalypse.
Her superpower is “being the mom” of any group she happens to be with, which is probably another reason why she is so great chairside with patients. Finally, Renee is as much of a furry, four-legged friend fanatic as the rest of us; she has a 5 year old yellow lab called Ralph, and a 1 year old cat, Denali at home, let’s just say that Ralph is more of a fan of Denali than the other way around.
