Donna Herlihy

Office Manager

I have been with our practice since 1990. I have over 35 years of experience in the dental field. I graduated from University of New England in 1978 with honors. I am also a member of the American Association of Dental Office Managers. 

With all the new regulations that are required, I have been instrumental in making sure our office is HIPPA and OSHA compliant, including the transition to a chartless office. 

I enjoy spending time with my husband, daughter (who is also one of our dental assistants!) and our Golden Retriever, Bode.

Lynne Simmons-Peterson

Registered Dental Hygenist

I have 2 Associates degrees from Middlesex Community College. I was a dental assistant first and then continued my education to become a Dental Hygienist. I also earned my licensure for local anesthesia from Mount Ida College. I have worked part time with Dr. Dovidio over the past 20 years then joined full time in November 2013. I bring my years of experience and my warm and gentle personality to all our patients!   

Off work, I volunteer with disabled and handicapped children, as well as go on trips overseas with outreach programs for those in need of dental care. I enjoy snowmobiling with my husband and our boys. I also enjoy photography and have a degree in professional photography. I enjoy photographing my friends and family the most!

Kaleigh Herlihy

Certified Dental Assistant

I started with our office in March 2013 as an intern while I completed my degree in Dental Assisting at NHTI. Upon graduating in June 2013, I came aboard as a full-time staff member. I am OSHA and Expanded Duty certified. I am also certified in Radiology.

Since my graduation, I have become a Certified Dental Assistant, passed all three board exams, and continued to take continuing education courses to stay up to date with the latest changes in dentistry. In my spare time, I love to craft and spend time with my dog, Jake


Front Desk Receptionist

I have been our front office coordinator for over 13 years and will most likely be the first person to greet you when you come in! I'll also most likely be your 'go-to' person to help you with your appointments or insurance questions. 

I live locally and enjoy spending time with my three grandchildren.
