  • Jillian

    A lifelong New Hampshire resident, Jillian graduated from NHTI as a Registered Dental Hygienist in 2016. She quickly adapted to practicing at Dovetail and easily builds relationships with her many patients.

  • Jordan

She then continued her education and obtained a bachelors degree in Dental Hygiene from Mt. Ida college. She enjoys connecting with each patient, especially if they are Boston sports fans! She also loves working with kids. Seeing a big, healthy smile at the end of the appointment is the best! In her spare time you can find Jordan spending time with her friends and exploring NH with her boyfriend and fur baby, Lucy. She also visits home frequently to spend time with family, especially her two little nieces.

  • Claudia - Retired

    Although, Claudia retired in December 2018, she is our go-to when someone needs time off. She loves seeing familiar faces when she is covering and our patients enjoy her guest-appearances. If you don't know Claudia, she grew up in Nashua, NH,  graduated from Forsyth Dental in Boston, and then started her career in Nashua, NH. She moved to the San Francisco area shortly after and practiced in California for 14 years. Moving her family to New Hampshire in the 80’s allowed Claudia to practice in Amherst throughout the rest of her career. She was active in the schools and the community when her daughters were growing up and now spends as much time with her grandchildren as she can.
