Things to Look For When Choosing a Dental Office

Ideally, on your first appointment to a new dental office, you should be scheduled with an appointment to see the dentist ... not a cleaning appointment during which the dentist stops in for a quick check..

Support Staff

All the assistants are extremely qualified with extensive experience and certification. Among our front desk personnel we have over 100 years of combined knowledge and experience.

Anne - Treatment and Marketing Coordinator

“While I was in college locally as a marketing major, I started helping a friend deliver dental lab cases to offices. I then was asked to help during a summer break at a dental office when the receptionist had left. There was no one to train me, so I learned from the ground up. I became fascinated with all aspects of dentistry and decided to make it a career.”

Anne loves to interact with patients. As to her philosophy of care, she listens and takes the time to understand their needs. For her, it is rewarding to help patients achieve their goals from start to finish. She also enjoys seeing new technologies being implemented in patient treatment.

“I truly enjoy helping a patient come up with a plan that fits their needs both dentally and financially and following it through.”

She wants patients to receive the highest level of care in the office. For her, it is also important that they feel they are part of a family.

“I hope their dental goals are met and they will be so happy that they send other patients to our office.”

Most of Anne’s time is spent with her fiancé, Jim, her four boys (Sean, Brayden, Ethan and Gavin) and her three stepchildren (Justin, Stephany and Abby). 

If she’s not in the office or at the baseball field, she goes shoe shopping or spends time at a camp in the Adirondacks, enjoying the peace and tranquility of the outdoors.

Connie - Patient Coordinator for Dr. Lewis Morrison

ConnieHS“I graduated from college with a teaching degree, but the year I got out, in teaching, jobs were scarce. My neighbor, who was a dentist, offered me a temporary receptionist position to cover a maternity leave. After that three months, since I now had some experience and it was mid-schoolyear, I took a receptionist job with a periodontist and ended up staying there 22+ years. I have now been here 16 years with Dr. Morrison. I guess you could say the dental profession chose me.”

Connie enjoys meeting patients and getting to know them on a personal level. For her, it is a rewarding experience to deliver the kind of care they want and desire.

“It is particularly gratifying when the dental work changes their demeanor and their outlook on life and the future.”

Connie loves to have a friendly rapport with patients. Her philosophy is that the practice is not just a buisness but a dental family. She wants the patients to receive exceptional care in a caring and welcoming atmosphere.

“I hope I give patients the impression that I am professional and knowledgeable yet friendly and interested in them, both as patients and as people.”

In her spare time, Connie enjoys travelling, reading, gardening and socializing with family and friends. She has been the treasurer of the Ladies’ Auxiliary of her local Elks Lodge for more than 10 years and is involved in various activities.

“It is wonderful what we do for charity.”

Connie is also part of a dominoes group and an active member of her church. She has three stepchildren and seven grandchildren who live in Connecticut and Texas.

Amber has been in the dental practice for seven years. She says the dental field has always been her interest. She feels teeth are one of the most important personal features and she wants to help people feel confident with their smile.

“One of the most lasting parts of a first impression is a person’s smile. And being part of a team who gives that person the confidence to smile makes my job rewarding.

“I would say I have a very friendly, personal relationship with our patients. I want them to feel they are being treated as individuals.

“I hope to give our patients an enjoyable and comfortable experience.”

When she’s not helping patients achieve beautiful, healthy smiles, Amber loves to spend quality time with her fiancé and two children. Together they enjoy being outside, doing crafts or playing with their furry friend Romeo.

What Ashley loves about the practice is the people and the diversity in daily function. “I am a very upbeat and caring person who hopes to give patients a pleasant and comfortable visit.”

Ashley’s philosophy is to help patients achieve their goals in a timely and painless manner. In her free time, Ashley loves being outdoors, boating and spending time with her family. She also enjoys walks with her three dogs.

Lori - Hygienist

Lori

“When I was an exchange student in Germany, the family I lived with had a dental practice. I would go to the office and it was very interesting to me, leading me to look into a career in dental hygiene.”

Lori loves the personal interaction with patients and the gratifying feeling she gets knowing she provided service that can change the health of these patients.

She enjoys delivering quality dental care through the use of state-of-the-art technology and providing a comfortable experience so that patients are happy to return and refer their family and friends.

“My treatment goal is to be gentle yet thorough. I try to speak in layman’s terms so the patients have an understanding how important their dental health is and how in many ways it correlates with their overall health.”

Lori has been involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters. Her charitable interests include the Humane Society and St. Baldrick’s Foundation, an organization centered on giving support to children with cancer.

Her spare time is spent with her family, especially with granddaughter Chelsea and dogs Tessa, Riley and Chili. Committed to leading a healthy lifestyle, she’s into power yoga, practicing it five days a week. She also loves any outdoor activity.

Lyndsey has been with Morrison Dental Care since 2014. She has always been interested in the dental field. She relates that she always enjoyed going to the dentist or orthodontist as she was growing up.

What captured her interest is that there are so many aspects to dentistry. After speaking with a friend who’s in the dental field, she decided to pursue the requisite studies.

“I really enjoy talking with and getting to know the patients. Each day is different, which keeps it new and interesting. I love seeing how happy patients are with the end results of cosmetic treatment.”

Her philosophy is to impart good communication and honest, informative care.

“I hope to give them a positive, memorable experience. I hope to make them feel comfortable and ease any dental apprehension.”

Lyndsey enjoys outdoor activities such as camping in the summer or skiing during winter. She’s also into interior decorating. Of course, she loves to spend time with her family and friends.

Rachel - Hygienist

Rachel pursued a career in dental hygiene “because my aunt was a hygienist, and she and my mom told me I should ‘go for teeth’ since I was a baby.” She’s glad she heeded their call because she loves what she’s doing.

“I enjoy helping people. I love to talk to people, and I’m blessed to get to do that every day.”

Rachel values the relationship she has with patients. She wants them to trust her and feel comfortable with her. She finds it rewarding to give patients knowledge about their oral health.

Her hobbies include running and participating in races. She also loves spending time with her family and friends. 

Stacy - Hygiene Coordinator

After working for a dental insurance company, Stacy decided to take a different path and interact with patients face to face. Since then, she’s been in the dental practice for 16 years.

“I enjoy watching how satisfied patients are when treatment is completed, especially when new patients walk through the door very apprehensive and not smiling, and after treatment is completed, they are so happy they can’t stop smiling.”

Stacy makes sure that she listens to every patient’s concerns and needs.

“In order to provide the best dental experience, one must understand what the patient desires.”

She hopes to make her patients feel at ease as soon as they enter the practice.

“I want them to have the highest level of confidence in the office. I want patients to understand their treatment plans, financial obligations and know we are there if they have any questions. I want them to understand the importance of regular checkups.”

When she’s not helping patients bring out the best of their smiles, Stacy spends her time with her husband, Gary, and daughter, Abbigail. She’s into fitness, enjoying running, Pilates and boot camp training. She looks forward to their annual trips to the beaches of Jamaica and New Jersey.
