Dhara received her dental training at Dharamsinh Desai University in Nadiad, India (she has a bachelor’s degree in dental surgery!), and she is currently taking classes at Quinnipiac University. Dhara is a big music lover who likes to sing, and she enjoys spending her free time hiking and hanging out with her family. In the not-too-distant future, she looks forward to enrolling in dental school.
Stephanie, Lead Dental Assistant
Stephanie grew up in Wethersfield and graduated from the dental assisting program at the Porter & Chester Institute. She is certified in radiology, infection control, and CPR. She plans to further her education and become a board-certified expanded function dental assistant in the near future. Her friendly chairside manner helps our patients feel completely relaxed and comfortable during their visits, and she finds great satisfaction in being able to give patients the smiles they want and deserve. Stephanie also loves to give back to her community and regularly volunteers at the Mission of Mercy dental clinic. Outside of dentistry, she enjoys traveling the world with her family and friends as well as going on nature hikes with her dog, Shamu.
