Certified Dental Assistant / Patient Coordinator
I have been fortunate enough to spend the last nine years of my career working with Dr. Garceau and our fabulous team. I am one of Dr. Garceau’s patient care coordinators, as well as a dental assistant. When not at the desk, I can be found assisting the doctor or hygienists. I greet patients, schedule their appointments, gather insurance benefit information, and serve as hygiene and sleep coordinator. It is great getting to know our patients and working with them to achieve and maintain a healthy and beautiful smile. Dr. Garceau has the latest and greatest technology, which enables her to offer the best treatment to her patients, along with many different treatment choices. We all stay current with the newest treatments through continuing education, about which Dr. Garceau is passionate.
When not in the office, I spend my time with my husband Randy. We have shared 33 years together and have two adult sons who recently relocated north to begin their careers. We are officially empty nesters except for my two awesome dogs. I enjoy camping, hiking, biking, and cooking. I also love to visit the ocean whenever possible, especially at Cape Cod.
Certified Dental Assistant
I am a graduate of Tunxis Community College, class of 1979, and began my career in this office the same year. My purpose is to ensure our patients’ dental needs are met with excellence in a comfortable, caring environment. We are a group of genuinely caring people who work together to give our best to our patients daily. We take many continuing education courses to improve our quality of care constantly. The greatest reward I receive is being part of enhancing people’s lives through dentistry and establishing long-lasting relationships with those we serve. Dr. Garceau is focused on our patients’ needs and desires, as well as those of her team. She makes a wonderful work environment for us all to enjoy.
When I’m home, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have five beautiful grandchildren named Gabriel, Sophia, Francesca, Christianna, and Lucas. They keep their Nana busy! I also enjoy gardening, camping, boating, and yoga.
I have been in the dental field since 1986, started working with Dr. Garceau in 2015, and have enjoyed every minute of it! I assist Dr. Garceau in procedures to make sure patients are comfortable and everything goes smoothly throughout their appointments. My favorite part of my job is making lifelong relationships with our patients while improving their dental health and needs. Our office is great because we are all truly passionate, kind, and caring in what we do on a daily basis; it's about our patient's overall health and well being. Our patients are our extended family.
I am blessed with one child; her name is Molli. She will be off to college in the fall. We have a rescued cat, who we love, his name is, Mishu. I can’t get enough of the beach, hiking, long walks, and spending time with family and friends. Something you didn’t know about me: If I were to win the lottery, I would purchase a large parcel of land and open a dog and cat sanctuary where they could live and be loved and cared for!
I schedule our patients’ appointments and set up all their financial arrangements, including coordinating their insurance coverage and making sure they get the most out of their benefits. I’ve spent 20 wonderful years working here, and each day I come into the office is better than the last. My favorite part of my job is meeting new people and building a relationship with them, all while making them feel at home in our office.
I share my life with my husband Tom. We have been married for 41 years and have three grown children and two adorable grandchildren. I love to bake and eat dessert. Right now my favorite outdoor hobby is bicycling and my favorite place to be is at the ocean.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I am one of Dr. Garceau’s dental hygienists, and I really enjoy seeing all of our patients on a regular basis. During each visit I get to find out new things going on in their lives and really get to know each person on a more personal level, while educating them about their oral hygiene needs and overall health. We go over things like their dental X-rays, periodontal status, and brushing and flossing techniques. Sometimes it’s the little things that can make the biggest difference when maintaining proper oral health. It is the greatest feeling to see someone’s reaction when they meet their goals and can’t stop smiling.
My husband Manny and I have a beautiful daughter, Ava. She brings a light into our lives every day with her hysterical personality. Other than my family, we have two dogs, Tingo and Deja. I enjoy staying healthy by going to the gym and being outdoors. Whether it’s hot or cold out, we are happy campers on the beach or on the slopes! One thing people do not know about me is that I’m part Japanese and would love to visit Japan one day! I have also never eaten a pear …couldn’t tell you why!
Registered Dental Hygienist
I have worked in the dental field for over 13 years. I was a dental assistant prior to deciding to further my education to becoming a dental hygienist. I graduated from Goodwin College with an Associate’s Degree in Dental Hygiene in 2016. While in school, I was class president of the Student Dental Hygienists’ Association, Phi Theta Kappa member and currently an active member of the American Dental Hygienists’ Association, state and local components. I am so excited to be part of Dr. Garceau’s dental team. My goal is to lead individuals to optimum oral health by educating, motivating, and preventing oral disease.
I have recently purchased a new home in my hometown of Windsor Locks. I have the most amazing teammate, my husband Mike, and the greatest gift; our son Joshua. As a family, we enjoy the beach, riding our bikes, and being close to family.
