Dental Assistants

Our dental assistants are warm and friendly. They strive to get to know each of our patients and assist in making them feel comfortable, they take the time to listen to each patient, and educate them on their oral health needs and how it connects the their overall health.

  • Jessica, CDA

    Born and raised in Southern New Hampshire, Jess has no desire to live anywhere else. Graduating in 2008, as a Certified Dental Assistant, from New Hampshire Technical Institute in Concord, Jessica offers a great balance between energy and expertise. Her bubbly personality and genuine compassion for people allow her patients to feel comfortable and calm. She enjoys spending her free- time with her husband and young son, Mason.  

  • Fernanda

    Fernanda is originally from Brazil where she graduated as a Speech Therapist before moving to North America with her family. After almost 10 years in Canada, and after her daughter started school, she decided to re-join the workforce. Fernanda attended Medix College in Kitchener, Ontario and graduated at the top of her class as a Certified Dental Assistant (CDA).  Her husband was soon transferred to Bedford, NH where they settled in. We were lucky enough to meet her as a patient, and upon learning that she was a CDA, we collectively knew we wanted to work with her! She brings a strong work ethic and uncanny dedication to the practice. Her innately caring demeanor is an asset to the team and immediately puts patients at ease. In her spare time, you can find her cycling with her husband, son, & daughter and enjoying outdoor activities with their chocolate (“espresso” because she’s crazy) labrador, Lou.

  • Dominique

    Dominique is a Southern New Hampshire native, and LOVES that her whole family is local. As the oldest of five kids, family has always been a big part of her life. She currently resides in Milford with her hilarious husband, Joey, and their fur babies. With over ten years of experience in the dental field, she continues to be passionate about helping patients achieve their oral health goals. She is an exceptional team player, and loves seeing and helping her teammates succeed. As a true “foodie”, she and her husband love to travel and experience the local cuisine wherever they may be.  In her free time, you’ll find Dominique camping, in Zumba class, or attending concerts. 

  • Kyara

    Kyara joined our dental team in March 2014 and loves being a dental assistant! Her goal is to provide a gentle and caring touch, create an overall pleasant experience for each one of her patients, and educate them on how much their mouths contribute to their overall health. She is thankful she can alleviate the fears of those who are scared or are in extreme pain so they can receive the treatment they need and to help them achieve a healthy mouth. Coming from a family originally from Brazil, Kyara can speak fluent English, Portuguese, and Spanish. She describes herself as being honest, outgoing, and neat. She enjoys working with people, and never fails to have a big smile. In her personal time, she loves traveling, going to the beach, dancing, and fishing, but mostly spending time with her family!

  • Casey - EFDA, CDA

    Casey was an ex-tern at our sister office, Interlakes Family Dental, for several months, actively learning all aspects of dentistry before she joined their team in 2013. We are overjoyed to have her as part of our clinical team here at Dovetail too! Not only is she friendly, patient and always smiling, she is a great intellect. Her accolades include Graduating as President of her Dental Assisting Class, obtaining her degree in Health Science (both achieved in the same year!), and being one of the first in NH to receive her Expanded Function Dental Auxillary (EFDA) Certification. Casey serves as Treasurer of the American Dental Assisting Association of NH and is currently on the NHTI Dental Advisory Board representing Dental Assistants of NH. She resides near lake Winnipesaukee with her husband, Andrew. When not doing house projects, the two spend most of their time enjoying outdoor activities such as biking, hiking and snowboarding. Casey's main goal is to continue her education to serve her patients with the most advanced care possible.
