I am very excited to be practicing what I love in the area where I was born and raised, Mid Coast Maine. I am fully enjoying the pleasant atmosphere at Seasons of Smiles Dental. Dr. Medina and his team have welcomed me with open arms just like they do all their patients. I graduated from Rockland High School while also working hard in the medical field. I have always enjoyed helping people and was drawn to working at the Knox Center and PBMC. My ten years working in the local emergency department made me realize that I wanted to do even more to guide people in their own health. I value my own dental care and believe that everyone should have the knowledge to care for his or her beautiful smile. A smile is the first part of meeting someone so when I decided to further my education I found that dental hygiene was a natural path. I graduated from U-Maine Augusta with a Associates Degree in Dental Hygiene in 2011.

I reside in Lincolnville with my growing family. The house is always full with children and animals. Our flowing flower gardens are where I find peace in the summer. I find the extra work relaxing and rewarding. Camping is something that we get to do as an entire family and enjoy quality time.

Cryptic tonsils are tonsils that have small pockets or pits called crypts.  The crypts trap particles of bacteria, dead white blood cells, bacteria of fungi, food particles, excess saliva or mucous or smoking without a filter.  These deposits are called tonsilloliths, tonsillar stones, or zots which can carry an unpleasant … Continue reading →
