Sharon

Registered Dental Hygienist

I graduated in 1980 from the University of Bridgeport, Fones School of Dental Hygiene with my Bachelor of Science degree, and joined Branford Dental Care and Hammonasset Dental Care in 2003. As a hygienist, I help my patients improve their oral health through cleanings and periodontal care, preventive care, and education about effective home care. A Branford native, I spend my time outside the office with my two children, Jake and Tori.

 

Kathy

Registered Dental Hygienist

I’ve worked as a hygienist for more than 30 years, and have spent the past seven years at Branford Dental Care and Hammonasset Dental Care. First and foremost, my favorite part of my job is being an educator. Through the education process, I am able to bring the patient to a state of health. Seeing these improvements have been the driving force in my career and make me feel fulfilled and rewarded. My husband of 32 years, Bill, and I have two children, Kaitlyn and Allison, son-in-law Joshua, and a granddaughter, Olivia, who is four months old. I enjoy gardening, working out, biking, golfing, and spending time with family and friends.

Kelly

Registered Dental Hygienist

Beginning my career as a hygienist in 1987, I joined my brother, Dr. Finnegan, here at Branford Dental Care and Hammonasset Dental Care in 2008. While my main priority is taking care of my patients’ oral health though cleanings and periodontal maintenance, I also spend time with each patient to understand their unique goals and needs. I feel this helps me to design home care plans that will actually work!

Kristen

Registered Dental Hygienist

I graduated from the University of New Haven with my dental hygiene degree in 1997, and joined the Branford Dental Care and Hammonasset Dental Care team in 2000. As I watch my patients get healthy, it’s fulfilling to know that I’ve been an important part of that positive change. I really like getting to know all my patients; each person is different and has such a unique personality! I live in Durham with my husband, Mike, and our daughter, Nicole. When I have time, I love fly-fishing in the Florida Keys!

Mallory

Registered Dental Hygienist

I graduated from the University of New Haven in 2018. I have been working with Branford Dental Care and Hammonasset Dental Care since 2019. Branford Dental Care has been my dental office since I was 6 years old. Growing up, I always admired the practice and welcoming team. Being able to call Branford Dental Care my place of work now is something I take pride in. My goal here is to provide optimum care for my patients by educating them on their oral health and coming to an understanding of what their individual needs are. What makes it all worth it is the positive outcomes once my patients reach their goals.
