Jeanne has been working at Modern Dentistry since 2010. She graduated from the University of Rhode Island in 1989 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. Her Dental Hygiene career began in 1995 after graduating with Honors from Quinsigamond Community College. Here she earned an Associate’s Degree in Dental Hygiene and was recognized with the Dental Hygiene Department Award, and awards for Clinical Excellence and Who’s Who among American Junior Colleges.
One of her greatest achievements in Dental Hygiene is Jeanne’s 17 year commitment to KIDSEAL. This is a community service project that was established by Professor Joyce Cooney, of Quinsigamond Community College in 1999. It provides dental services to the underprivileged elementary school aged children from all 42 Worcester Elementary Schools. Because of this program, many children who have never been to the dentist have an opportunity to receive free dental services – evaluations, cleanings, x-rays, fluoride, and sealants. They also receive a new toothbrush and floss, oral health education, and follow up instructions to take home. They leave with a positive experience and a sparkling smile. Jeanne is grateful for the opportunity to contribute to such a valuable program.
Jeanne has been passionate about providing the highest level of dental care to her patients for over 20 years. She is a lifelong resident of Shrewsbury, and as part of the community, can always spot a familiar face coming through the door. For her, working at Modern Dentistry is much more than just a job. It is her opportunity to reconnect with friends from town and spend an hour listening, while providing gentle, comprehensive quality care. She always takes a keen interest in every one of her patients and strives to make them feel comfortable, validated and well cared for. She plans to continue making her contribution at Modern Dentistry for many years to come.
When not working, she enjoys running, reading, and spending time on Cape Cod with her husband and three children.
Kate graduated with Honors from Quinsigamond Community College with a degree in dental hygiene in 2010 and found herself at home with the Modern Dentistry team in 2012. She has been honored to work with and learn so many aspects of dentistry from Dr. Mehdi and our specialists. Being able to engage in many new conversations, meet new patients, and watch families and individuals grow while providing ethical, thorough, and quality care makes it easy for her to go to work every day.
She is currently furthering her education at Worcester State University with the intentions of continuing to dental school. Kate grew up locally in Oxford and now resides in Worcester. She has always been adventurous and athletic and enjoyed the outdoors. She played several sports growing up, including riding horses, and still often plays softball and field hockey.
