Meet The Team

April – Treatment Plan Coordinator

I have been in the Pediatric/Orthodontic dental field since 1997. With extensive experience I can really appreciate the quality of Dr. Lindsey and Dr. Matt’s work and the exceptional care this office provides. Outside of work I love spending time with my husband and children. I enjoy hiking, gardening and staying active.

Danielle – Reception and Insurance Coordination

I have been working in the dental field with Dr. Matt and Dr. Lindsey for 6 years now. I have really enjoyed the interaction with all of our patients! I love spending time with my husband and three children. My interests include running, various styles of dancing and being a mommy.


Since starting as an administrative assistant, I’ve felt like this place and its people are my family.  I love coming to work.  I also love seeing all the many patients come through and getting to know them too!

In my spare time, I enjoy hiking with my family and dog, biking, traveling, and singing!


I am so happy and proud to have recently joined the dental team with Dr. Lindsey and Dr. Matt.  I have several years experience as a dental hygienist and really enjoy working with children.  I am happily married, have 3 grown children and most recently welcomed our first grandchild.  With my free time I enjoy reading, boating, and spending time with family and friends on the Great Sacandaga Lake!  I look forward to meeting you with your children and guiding them to a future of healthy dental care!

I have two wonderful sons, Matthew and Nicholas. I also have a pug named QC. I enjoy traveling, baking, cooking, spending time with family and going to Broadway shows! I am looking forward to meeting you at your next appointment!

Diane – Orthodontic Assistant

I have been working in dentistry since 1977 and in the orthodontic field since 1998! I love orthodontics and have been lucky enough to be working with Dr. Matt for the past year. What a fun office!


I have been a dental assistant since 2017 and I feel so lucky to have ended up working in this office!  Dr. Matt and Dr. Lindsey are amazing and the staff are all special and caring people.  I come from a big Italian family and on my free time I am either with them or training in the gym!


I have been working in the dental field for 21 years and I’ve been lucky enough to work with Dr. Matt, Dr Lindsey and this amazing team for the past 3. One of my favorite parts of my job is watching our patients transform right in front of my eyes!
