Meet The Team

When forming Bay Breeze Dentistry, Dr. Santana knew that she wanted an office setting that her patients would be able to enjoy.  In order to accomplish this, she surrounded herself with not only some of the best equipment, but with the best team members.  Dr. Santana specifically searched for those that have an understanding for quality, thorough work, caring and thoughtfulness for the patient, and an upbeat attitude in the office.  From the minute you step in the office to the time you leave, the team of Bay Breeze Dentistry is there to make the patient's experience a pleasurable visit!


 

HYGIENISTS

JANET, RDH

Janet has been a practicing clinical hygienist for over 37 years, primarily here in the NH seacoast.  She served a short time in the United State Air Force and graduated from the University of Virginia and Onondaga College, located in upstate NY.  She has been happily working in several dental practices over the years while raising her children. Her daughter is a nurse practitioner who lives in Vermont, and her son works at Merrill Lynch in Manhattan. She is also the proud grandmother of a beautiful eight year old girl and a four year old boy.

When not taking care of teeth, she enjoys being a voracious reader, cross country skiing, and kayaking.  She far prefers a book and a hammock to a treadmill or a gym. After all, you can floss your teeth while swinging in a hammock!

She promises her patients that she is gentle, understanding and tries her best to help you, never scold you! She loves her work at Bay Breeze Dentistry, where we all enjoy the high tech advantages that deliver first rate dental care to all. She looks forward to meeting you to help you gain a winning smile!
