heather

Heather, Office Manager

Heather is from Lowell, and she’s been working in the dental field for nearly five years. She attended Kaplan University and is certified in CPR and Radiology. Today, what she loves most about her job is seeing the transformation that comes over patients inside the dental office – even when they’re terrified at first, they look so comfortable and content by the end of their visit!

Heather is happily married and has a son who is at the fun toddler age – he keeps her very busy. Her family also has a “mini zoo” which includes two dogs, a cat, a bird, and a fish tank. When she isn’t busy at work, she loves spending time at the pool in the summer, doing lots of fun activities with her loved ones, playing sports, going for walks, and riding bikes. She’s also recently developed an interest in redoing old furniture so that it looks brand new again.
