We are extremely proud of what we do, and of our reputation for excellence. We pride ourselves on staying on the cutting edge of dentistry and patient communication. Feedback from our patients about an experience in our office is always welcomed.
Our highly trained, dedicated and motivated staff has one primary goal – your utmost comfort!
Chrissy – Dental Assistant
It was natural for Chrissy to have an affinity to dentistry since her dad is a dentist in Connecticut. We are lucky that Chrissy’s husband talked her into moving to nearby, Achusnet. Chrissy has become a very valuable member of our team. Chrissy’s background at U Mass Dartmouth and BCC has brought her excellent dental skills. With her sweet personality, she has the gift of making friends with our patients quickly and putting them at ease in the dental chair. Chrissy prepares our patients for their treatment, ensures the sterility of the treatment areas, and assists the dentists during their dental procedures. Chrissy is very gifted in making patients feel comfortable and she does whatever she can to address any concerns and answers any questions our patients may have. Chrissy is “our famous assistant.” Every year she has the honor of working with cheerleaders and dancers from around the country to choreograph the NFL Pro Bowl Halftime Show in Hawaii. Everyone loves hearing all her stories when she returns. Chrissy’s favorite part of her position is making a difference in her patient’s lives by helping them meet their dental goals and needs. “This is a wonderful place to work; we do excellent dentistry, everyone gets along great and we have a lot of fun with our extended family of patients!”
Jessica – Dental Hygienist
Jessica brings us her warm, sweet and welcoming personality all the way from Idaho! To know Jessica — is to love her! Jessica attended Idaho State University and has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene from the highly competitive Forsyth School of Dental Hygiene in Boston. Jessica did her student training at Harvard School of Dental Medicine. We are very proud of Jessica’s many awards and scholarships of excellence. In addition to working at Harelick Dental Associates, Jessica teaches hygienists how to take digital x-rays at Forsyth School of Dental Hygiene. It is no surprise that virtually nothing escapes Jessica’s notice when it comes to maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Jessica loves interacting with patients of all ages and backgrounds and strives to deliver the very best care at every appointment. Jessica feels it is important to educate patients about their dental health so they can enjoy a healthy smile for a lifetime. In addition to spending time with her friends and family, Jessica enjoys reading, traveling, and the great outdoors! “I love working with the three Dr. Harelicks. You’ll love the entire team here like I do, we provide wonderful dentistry and we are all best friends!”
Lauren – Office Manager
Lauren is warm, fun and gracious; you can’t help but like her as soon as you meet her! It is Lauren’s pleasure to be responsible for making Harelick Dental Associates tick! We have been fortunate enough to have her with us for seven years. Lauren is responsible for making all of our operations run smoothly and efficiently for both the doctors and our patients. She will gladly answer any questions you have about your dental insurance and the financing available to help create your beautiful and healthy smile. Lauren’s computer expertise and an astute understanding of our high-tech conveniences insures our office always stays state-of-the art. Lauren thinks of all our patients as individual people and friends, and never just as a number or a name on a chart. She not only loves our patients, but this practice as well. Lauren is an amateur photographer, enjoys fishing and kayaking and especially loves spending time with her husband and precious and feisty son, Mason. She has been, for about 16 years, a volunteer at Greenlock Therapeutic Riding Center where she assists handicapped people of all ages and disabilities to ride horses. “I am very proud to be part of Harelick Dental Associates”. Our philosophy is to provide exceptional care in a kind and enjoyable atmosphere. I love asking our patients if that had a nice visit, I am always pleased to hear a great and very positive response!”
Sheri – Dental Hygienist
Sheri started as a patient when she was 17 years old. She has been our hygienist for 24 years. We can’t believe that is possible. Sheri’s passion for dentistry is obvious to all our patients who love her. Sheri’s main focus is educating her patients and helping them maintain a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. Sheri enjoys attending continuing education courses and prides herself on always being involved in state-of-the-art dentistry. Her favorite part of being a hygienist is her long-term relationships she builds with her patients. We love hearing the laughter coming from her treatment room as her patients enjoy “catching up” at their visits. Sheri attended UMass Dartmouth for business, and graduated from Bristol Community College’s very competitive hygiene program with an Associate’s Degree in Science. Outside of work, Sheri enjoys spending time with her husband and two handsome son — she spends endless hours cheering at their sporting events! Sheri also has fun being with the “girls”—her sisters and her precious nieces! Sheri loves reading great books, spending time with family and friends, and traveling to wonderful places! “My favorite part of my job is watching my patients grow up, celebrating their life’s events and watching them become successful and happy adults — with beautiful smiles!”
