Love to cook. My granddaughter calls me Nonie. Been with Zahner Dental 25 years. Not a fan of change. Just sayin.

Proud mother of 4 boys and grandmother of 3. Loves the outdoors, wild life and cooking for friends and family. I have a true passion in finding ways for everyone to be able to have a healthy smile.

Still in that newly wed bliss with my wonderful husband of one year, and we are loving life with our new bundle of joy, Thomas! Excited to be back assisting with the great doctors at Zahner Dental, alongside my sister and my aunt!

Brittany Dental Assistant

My two kids are my whole world. My husband and I love to binge watch our favorite tv shows. In the warmer months Wells, Maine is my home away from home. I’m a book worm, bacon lover and Christmas fanatic. I love to spend time with my family whenever I can.

Carey Dental Assistant

I get all fired up when I’m throwing pots into my kiln! Dental tech turned assistant.

Used to hate all things dental, now forming my future career around it...I guess it’s in the family (working with my sister and aunt!). Passions include music, my sweet nephew, and chocolate ice cream.

Lanae Hygiene Assistant

Happiest when with family and friends. Traveling and exploring the great outdoors is my favorite pastime. In hygiene school!

Ellen Dental Assistant

Love more than anything to be with my two precious gifts from above. My husband Jason and my son Justus. You can find me often shopping for a hidden treasure at a consignment shop or tag sale. Or lately swinging a hammer as I live out my husband’s dream to flip a house!
