Kerrie says her days at Chappaqua Dentistry are full of different tasks – she helps with patient care, takes x-rays, works chairside with the dentist and completes laboratory duties. “I love the variety of every day, each patient, and every case,” she says.
Kerrie, who has spent 17 years in the dental industry, says she loves being able to touch patients’ lives in a positive way. “I was always interested in helping people on a personal level,” she says. “I loved the thought of helping people smile again. My co-workers here are like family and it’s the job of my dreams.” Kerrie says her extreme organizational tendencies help the doctors move smoothly from patient to patient and the schedule to stay on track.
When Kerrie isn’t helping the practice run like clockwork and sending home patients with happy smiles, she is usually with her large family, which includes mom, dad, two sisters, a brother, three nephews and three nieces. “I spend a lot of time being an aunt, showing up at basketball games or watching my niece do gymnastics. Family is everything!” Kerrie also supports United for the Troops.
Donna is responsible for behind the scenes tasks, helping set up operatory rooms, perform sterilization procedures, complete inventory and keep up with office maintenance. “I love organization!” she says. Donna joined the dental industry right out of high school, looking for a stable, local job, and never left it.
Donna, who has spent over 20 years working in the dental field, says the practice’s patients and her co-workers are the best things about being part of the team at Chappaqua Dentistry. “My co-workers are like family,” she says. She also notes that patients often come in expecting a painful experience but leave pleasantly surprised.
When Donna isn’t keeping the practice organized and sterilized, she loves spending time with her husband of many years or with their son and three grandchildren. “My husband survived cancer four times, and he’s my hero,” she says. “We like going out to dinner together or just staying in and enjoying each other’s company. We’d love to go traveling someday!”
Donna retired in 2020 and patients often ask about her!
