Meet the Team

Denise

Denise

Office Manager

I have spent the past twelve years as Maple Dental’s office manager. I help to create a fun, friendly, kind, and professional atmosphere while scheduling appointments, processing insurance claims, and handling patient accounts. We have a great team here, and I enjoy working with all of them. Dr. LaMastra is also wonderful. He has a great passion for dentistry, which makes going to work every day enjoyable.

My husband John and I have been married for more than 30 years. We have three grown children: Scott, Alyssa, and Christopher. We also have a new puppy named Coalby. I enjoy spending time with my children, husband, family, and friends. In my free time, I like walking, shopping, traveling, and learning new things.

Nyerere

Dental Hygienist

I began my dental career eleven years ago and was excited to join Maple Dental in 2010. In addition to providing my patients with preventive and maintenance care through cleanings, I also educate them on the best home care methods and help to manage dental anxiety. I have enjoyed getting to know our family of patients and helping them to enjoy their dental experience.

I’m a single mom of four wonderful children named Naima, Zaynab, Safiyyah, and Muhammab. My family is very important to me and I love spending time with them. I recently earned my RN degree as well.

Patty

Dental Hygienist

I have been a hygienist at Maple Dental since 2010 and have worked in the dental field for more than a decade. I give our patients all the education and tools they need to maintain the health of their mouths and the beauty of their smiles for the rest of their lives. It is so much fun to meet people from all walks of life and get to know them on a personal level.

I am single with two children, Shane and Brittni, along with three cats. My time outside the office is spent with my family and friends.

 

Susan

Dental Assistant

I work chairside with Dr. LaMastra and assist him with all dental procedures, including taking impressions and changing wires on orthodontic patients. In addition, I am the liaison with the dental laboratories to ensure cases are completed on schedule. I’ve been at Maple Dental for more than 23 happy, wonderful years. The best part of my job is to make our patients at ease during their dental appointment.

At home, I have a son named Jesse. I enjoy reading and spending time with my family and friends in my free time.
