She is a busy mom of two young boys and enjoys attending their sporting events.



Pauline is a graduate of UNE and has been a Registered Dental Hygienist for over 34 years. She is also licensed for local anesthesia and nitrous oxide administration. She has spent the last 20 years with our practice.

When she’s not with us, she is on the move: biking, hiking, downhill skiing, or scuba diving. Pauline has also combined her love of travel with her commitment to helping others on numerous dental humanitarian missions including Guatemala, Jamaica, Peru, Cambodia, Vietnam, and New Orleans. In her free time, she enjoys cooking and fine dining.



Abby graduated from UMA Bangor in 2015 with a Bachelor’s degree in Dental Hygiene and has transitioned from being a patient of the practice to joining our team. Abigail has been with our practice for over 3 years. She is also licensed to administer local anesthesia and nitrous oxide.

Jake graduated from the University of New England in 2016 with a Bachelor’s degree in Dental Hygiene and is also licensed to administer local anesthesia. After graduation, Jake gained experience temping at various dental offices in Maine. He accepted a full time position with us because we possessed all of the things he was looking for in a dental office.

When Jake is not working, you can find him hiking and camping in the summer, and on the slopes snowboarding in the winter. You can consider him a sports fanatic, as he loves all sports and plays basketball as often as he can.

Leigh has also utilized her skills on dental missions to New Orleans, Jamaica, and Peru.
