Get to know our all-star team
The staff at our office truly enjoy their jobs and and working together -- it's evident in all of our interactions together. That translates directly to an environment that puts our patients at ease and makes them feel welcome. The camaraderie we've built with each other over the years isn't easily replicated, which is why our existing patients are the greatest source or new patient referrals for our office!
Dr. Keating - Our Captain
Dr. Keating calls the plays and executes the home runs. She is a graduate of Tufts University, The University of Maryland School of Dentistry and a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine. Dr. Keating has seen many smiles in her over 20 years of practice. Before coming to Marshfield, she got her start in Texas as a hospital dentist, and then traveled to Germany to keep the troops smiling for four years. She’s proud to be the captain of this all-star team.
Alexa: Our Catcher
The real life Alexa greets you on the phone and in person with all the help and answers you need. While Alexa is new to dentistry she is older than Amazon's Alexa and far more nimble. You won’t get the brush off from this Alexa!
Nicki: Our Point Guard
A basketball fan, Nicki is the sixth WoMan on the team. Capable, sensitive and caring, she is ideal for her job. Although she is often a behind the scenes playmaker, she is also sometimes the first person you will see at the door or the voice you will hear on the phone. She helps to maintain the course as the face of the practice as well as the Kevin McHale ribs. Nicki loves shabby chic and transforming furniture…and the color pink.
Kristen - Shortstop
Kristen is the shortstop of the office; she may be our lead hygienist but she always helps out where needed. Kristen is passionate about dental hygiene and is devoted to the best quality of care for her patients. She graduated from Forsyth Dental Hygiene program at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in 2006. She lives in Plymouth with her husband Chris and 2 sons Logan and Owen. Kristen loves being at the beach, traveling, and hanging with family and friends.
Marina has worked on all kinds of teeth, from Canines to molars as a former Vet-Tech and knows formal ballet training too. She is precise and seeks accuracy. Being naturally competitive, she wants you to be too as she strives for perfect technique with infectious enthusiasm. Marina received her RDH degree from Cape Cod Community College.
Lauren: The Playmaker
Certified Dental Assistant and leading in assists, Lauren makes each dental appointment a home run. She can be counted on to get you from first-base to home plate before the ball hits the ground. Lauren is a dog lover - she has two, Jaxon and Deter. Lauren’s super power is being an especially thoughtful and careful listener. Don’t mistake her listening for shyness…she’ll steal a base or two when you're not expecting it. Lauren is a graduate of Massasoit Community College.
Christine - Our #1 Rookie Recruit
A perfect asset to the team, Christine is our utility infielder. A quick study, she can play any base. As an Interdisciplinary Studies degree student at Plymouth state, Christine studied Business and Dance. Adaptable and nimble, Christine teaches tap and Jazz to longtime loyal students in her side hustle. She also knows every broadway show and showtune. To her credit, you would never know Christine has only recently come up to the team.
Denise – The Clutch Player
Although you may only see Denise here one day a week, she is full time in spirit. Always willing to pitch in, she's our DH, and also a Dental Hygenist. Denise loves to work with miniatures, but she has a huge heart - she is the Big Papi of our team.
Jere: Miss Tall International 2000
Jere is a hygienist hailing from the University of Washington, and a former resident of Aurora, Colorado. Even though she continues to root for the Denver Broncos, we accept (love!) her because of her periodontal finesse and systems she has developed in the office. She is also a wonderful cook and teacher of culinary arts. Thankfully for us, she both cooks (food) and cleans (teeth) extraordinarily well.
