Polly

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.

Stephanie

Dental Assistant

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!

Terry

Patient Coordinator

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.

Samantha

Financial Coordinator

I am new to the dental field and I truly love it. I have been in the customer service and financial field for almost 6 years and wouldn’t change it for anything. I spent four lovely years working with Alzheimer’s and Dementia patients and learned that I have a passion for helping people. My past experiences have helped to mold me into the person I am today. Currently, I set up financial arrangements including coordinating with patient’s insurance coverage  so that they are getting the most out of their benefits. I’m very excited to meet new people and to build everlasting relationships with the patients and our team.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy going on hikes with my boyfriend of seven years and our two dogs. Family is very important to me and any chance I get to spend my time with them.

Lisa

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 gifts; our son Joshua and daughter Peyton. As a family, we enjoy the beach and being close to family.

KC

Registered Dental Hygienist

I am newer to the field of dentistry finishing my education in 2016. I have found a career I love doing every day! My favorite part of being a dental hygienist is getting to know each patient and educating them to achieve their best oral health by making small changes with their brushing and flossing techniques. I am very excited to be a part to Dr. Garceau’s team!

I graduated from Goodwin College, with Lisa, in 2016 where I was class secretary of the Student Dental Hygienist Association. I am currently a member of the Hartford component of the Connecticut ADHA. I was awarded the Hu-Friedy Golden Scaler for demonstrating clinical excellence throughout my time at Goodwin.

My Husband, Mike, and I have been a team since 2010 with our wonderful son, Lucas. We enjoy spending time together with family game nights, playing laser tag, or taking day trips to the beach, zoo, or science center. We have one dog, two bearded dragons, and three cats so you can say we are animal lovers, too!
