I have over 15 years experience working in the dental field. My career began as a dental technician fabricating dental prosthesis including crowns and dentures. I decided to pursue a degree in Dental Laboratory Technology and graduated from Middlesex Community College in Lowell, MA in 2006. In 2014, I transitioned to become a treatment coordinator, learning more about various payment options and how best to utilize dental benefits. I take pride in being able to explain treatment options and work with patients to find a way to best utilize their dental benefits and fit their dental care into their budget and schedule. I love being an advocate for patients to get the care they need. In my free time I enjoy taking my dog to the park, traveling with my husband and friends, shopping, and going to the beach.
I graduated from Porter & Chester Institute in Rocky Hill in 2013 and have worked for Dr. DiStefano since then. In my spare time I enjoy outdoor adventures and fun times with my family, friends, 2 dogs and cat. I look forward to expanding my dental knowledge in my many years to come in this exciting environment.

I obtained my education as a dental assistant from Manchester Community college, and now have over 30 years’ experience as a certified Expanded Function Dental Assistant. I became a part of the team at DiStefano Family Dentistry in April of 2012. Being born and raised here in Glastonbury, it is extremely fulfilling to be able to work and help people in the community. In addition to being an Expanded Function Dental Assistant I work part time at Rose’s Berry Farm and run a cookie and cake business. I enjoy creating memories with my 3 children, friends, and family. Cooking, travelling, spinning, going to the beach, and reading a good book are some of my favorite pastimes.

I actually can't believe I have been practicing dental hygiene for as long as I have! I received my degree from Westbrook College. Since then, I have loved my decision to pursue this fulfilling career. Establishing a positive relationship with my patients has always been my #1 goal. Sharing the knowledge I have learned over the years through my experiences and continuing education classes with my patients and co-workers is very rewarding, but more important, is the constant learning I gain from them.
