About Us Liverpool, NY Dentist Office Tour Coming Soon! Traci – Insurance Coordinator Hi! My name is Traci and I am the insurance coordinator here at Merola Family Dentistry. I started in the dental field over 10 years ago and I have worn many “different hats” and have experience in each area from assisting to office management. I’m one of the newest members of the team and I look forward to many years to come! Insurance can be tricky and often hard to understand, and I take pride in helping patients decipher their insurance and helping them maximize those benefits. When I’m not in the office I enjoy spending time boating or snowmobiling with my wonderful husband Jeremy and my two beautiful children Kylie and Asher. Dana – Registered Dental Hygienist My name is Dana, and I am a Hygienist at Merola Family Dentistry. I graduated with dental hygiene degree from SUNY Canton in 2018. I feel accomplished when I am able to make good experiences for patients who have a history of negative experiences with dental care. I believe that making personable relationships with patients is an essential part of my career as a dental hygienist. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, staying active outdoors and taking trips with my dog Shenzi. Sarah – Registered Dental Hygienist Hey there! I’m Sarah and I am a registered dental hygienist here at Merola Family Dentistry. I am from Chatham, Massachusetts where I was a dental assistant for 4 years before becoming a hygienist. I place a large value on patient care and the development of a wholesome clinician – patient relationship. When I am not working, I am the mama of an active, huge hearted boy named Jaden and a sassy, very loving girl named Cora. Somewhere in the crazy life we live, my husband Josh and I enjoy going to the gym, working on projects around the house and going anywhere, for any length of time, just to be together. Morgan – Lead Dental Assistant My name is Morgan and I am a Dental Assistant here at Merola Family Dentistry. I graduated from Dental Assistant school of Syracuse in 2016, and joined our team in 2017. Within two years of assisting experience I learned techniques in general chair-side assisting including CEREC same day crowns, cosmetic smiles design, implant placement, impressions, and becoming an expert for teeth whitening. I love quality patient care and motivates me to continue to learn and improve myself. Outside of the office I love spending time with my family and friends and spoiling her chocolate labs Odin and Trapper. Adrianna – Dental Assistant Hello, my name is Adrianna and I recently graduated from the dental assisting program from OCM Boces in February of 2019. I started at Merola Family Dentistry in April with this office being my first assisting job. I’ve learned so much while working chair-side with Dr. Merola. Since starting at the office I’d say one of my professional accomplishments is turning a patient’s once negative fear at the dentist into a positive one with our welcoming environment! When I’m not assisting, I enjoy spending time with my amazing husband and our two beautiful daughters. I also enjoy my time shopping and taking our dogs on hikes with us.
