Hygienists

Cheryl Shkliew

Cheryl's operatory tends to be loud. Extremely loud. Laughter pours from her room as patients receive amazing cleanings in a truly fun atmosphere. Cheryl has worked for the practice for almost 30 years - while in high school she worked as an assistant for Dr. Garber, and then after graduation from Middlesex Community College's Dental Hygiene program, she re-joined the practice as a hygienist.  As a result, Cheryl enjoys long-term friendships with her patients and truly understands their specific needs.  She strives to provide her patients with the best dental care they have ever had while helping them feel as comfortable as possible in our family-oriented dental practice.  Hygiene appointments with Cheryl are thorough yet filled with laughter. Patients describe leaving hygiene appointments with Cheryl with a smile on the face.

Cheryl has a daughter Olivia and a son Louis and lives in Lynn.  Although she spends most of her time after work carting them around to all of their sports and activities, Cheryl makes time to work out in the gym and loves to run along the water.


Joy Manthorne

Joy graduated from Middlesex Community College's Dental Hygiene program in 1994 and joined our practice 15 years ago.  Although an experienced hygienist, Joy believes "it's not all about dentistry - it's about wellness." Joy has taken many Continuing Education courses about dentistry, nutrition and well being and how all three intertwine for overall health.

Joy especially loves working with people who are fearful of dentistry. Her gentle touch and caring personality put all of her patients at ease and allow for regular, anxiety-free dental care.

A resident of Peabody, Joy has three children: Deven, Jordan, and Krystana. She loves to exercise - any activity that will keep her in shape for the long term - and is currently passionate about 5 a.m. boot camp classes (!!) and yoga.


Deborah Cowan

Debbie truly cares about our patients, especially the children.  During an appointment, Debbie has wide-ranging conversations about books, movies and TV shows, not only because she loves our patients, but also to achieve the goal of putting them at ease and providing the best hygiene experiences possible.  She especially enjoys watching the children grow and discussing their changing interests.

Debbie also cares for many patients who are afraid of dentistry.  Her warmth and gentle touch put all patients at ease and create a trusting relationship.

A native of Beverly, Debbie has been a hygienist at our practice for almost 10 years.  She is a graduate of Forsythe Dental Hygiene School and also attended California State University at Fullerton, graduating with a degree in Business Administration.   Debbie has a daughter living in Los Angeles and another in Philadelphia.  She enjoys traveling near and far, recently returning from a trip to Amsterdam.


Denise Currier-Bailey

Denise Currier-Bailey won’t go away. And we are absolutely thrilled!

Originally from Saugus, Denise initially entered the dental field when she received a certificate in Dental Assisting from Northeast Metropolitan Technical High School. She continued her education at Middlesex Community College, graduating from the Dental Hygiene program in 1997.

Denise worked here for eight years but moved to New Hampshire in order to study at the University of New Hampshire; she received her B.A. in Health Care Administration while teaching dental assisting on the high school level.

Although she loved teaching, Denise missed direct patient contact and after ten years, came back to clinical practice, re-joining our hygiene team earlier this year. However, she and her husband Aaron continue to live on two acres on the New Hampshire coast. In her spare time, Denise takes care of their five dogs, their pool, the garden and oh, she also has almost completed coursework for a master’s degree in vocational education.

Denise loves to be outdoors but we are excited to have her indoors as a member of our hygiene team. Welcome back!!!


Pam Sullivan

Few people can say they can run home for a quick lunch but Pam Sullivan certainly can. And she lives in Saugus!

Pam describes herself as someone who likes to stay busy, VERY busy. She competes in road races, likes to work out with weights and enjoys yoga. She has participated in trapeze jumping (!), zip lining and rock climbing, and is starting jujitsu classes soon. Oh, she also has two dogs, a bird and a turtle.

Yes, she succeeds in staying busy.

Pam joined our team about a year ago but has been a dental hygienist for over 30 years. She grew up in Saugus and still lives there with her son Patrick and daughter Kaeli. She received her hygiene degree from Forsyth and her B.A. in Health Sciences from Northeastern University.

Pam’s description of a recent fabulous day:

“I had been treating a 7 year old boy since his first dental cleaning years earlier. He had been terrified of all things dental and cried a lot. Finally, at this appointment, he looked up at me and announced that this wasn’t scary at all!  Getting your teeth cleaned was fun!”

Welcome to the team, Pam!
