Trisha

Hello! My name is Trisha and I am one of the hygienists here at Falmouth Pediatric Dentistry. I am a graduate from the University of New England, with a bachelor's degree in Dental Hygiene. I grew up in Massachusetts and have come to love and live in Portland, Maine.

I had always known that hygiene was the perfect career for me. Everyday I look forward to working, laughing, and having fun with the kids here. It is very rewarding watching, guiding and teaching the children about their mouth and teeth. When I’m not cleaning teeth I enjoy being outside, playing sports (soccer, football, and kickball to name a few), cooking, and spending time with my family and friends!
