Dana

Front Desk Coordinator

I started working in the dental field in 1996 as the Lead Dental Director for a large hospital in Utah. I originally grew up in California but have lived in many places. I am able to call Connecticut home now for the last 12 years. I’ve had many titles in the dental industry and have been able to fulfill each one with persistence to see the job through and always to tackle a task in a logical and systematic manner.

My personal motto is “to work hard and play harder!”

Outside of work and not at the office, I enjoy spending time with family, playing softball and riding motorcycles, both street and dirt bike.

Aida

Dental Assistant

I started working in the dental field while I was getting my bachelor degree. After graduation, I didn’t see the need to change careers because I loved what I was doing. I have been in the same practice for a few years now and I see it as my second family. I love to interact with people and make them feel comfortable and I know they appreciate my compassion and competence. I’m also fluent in Portuguese and Spanish which sometimes is helpful to our patients. I feel very fortunate to work with Rolling Hills Dentistry because we are all about the wellbeing of our patients.

When I’m not at work I love to spend time with my family, I enjoy the beach, hiking and visiting new places.

Melinda

Hygienist

After having a wonderful dental hygienist growing up I felt hygiene was the career for me. I have enjoyed over 25 years in the dental field. I am very happy to be working at Rolling Hills Dentistry. My main goal is to make your visit a pleasure.

In my free time I like to garden, but my true passion is cooking. My latest cooking adventure was in Molecular Gastronomy.

Ellen

Hygienist

With over 19 years practicing as a Dental Hygienist, my first priority is the comfort and health of my patients. I focus on prevention and explain the links between oral health and one’s general health.

As a native of Danbury, my husband Dan and I are proud parents of our twin boys that make every day an adventure! When not working I love to watch our boy’s sporting events, travel, cook and spend time with family.
