Hi, my name is Patti. I’m the Treatment Plan Coordinator at North Shore Dental Center. With a career spanning back to 1990 in the dental field, I have gained extensive knowledge and skills through on-the-job training. My commitment to providing top-notch patient care is evident through CPR Certification and HIPAA Certification, as well as many other continuing education and training opportunities in the dental field. I find true fulfillment in my role as a Treatment Plan Coordinator, as I genuinely enjoy helping people and leaving a positive impact on their lives. Having grown up in Revere, MA, and later relocated to Peabody, when I’m at work, I feel at home serving my community. Outside of my professional life, I am happily married and blessed with two adult kids. My love extends to my furry companions, Sofie and Calli, my beloved Labrador Retrievers. When not working, I prioritize my family, cherish my friendships, and find joy in various activities such as traveling, engaging in arts and crafts, and finding solace in the peacefulness of the ocean. Moreover, I thrive on continuously learning new things and embracing personal growth. My dedication to my work and genuine passion for helping others make me an invaluable asset to the team at North Shore Dental Center.

Hi, My name is Jillian, but everyone refers to me as Jilly or Jill. I am a passionate and hardworking dental assistant. I obtained my education through the dental assisting program at Essex North Shore Agricultural and Technical School, MA, where I received my initial hands-on training and workplace experience by assisting dental students at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, as well as obtaining my CPR, HIPAA, first aid, and x-ray certifications. Working with Dr. Elias has been an ongoing learning experience. I assist her in all restorative, crown and bridge, plus implant surgical placements. My commitment to providing the highest standard of patient care and infection control protocols is based on regular advanced continuing education and dental training to keep up with the ever-evolving dental field.

Alongside my passion for dentistry, I am very passionate about animals. Therefore, when I’m not at work, I’m taking care of or playing with my adorable pets, rabbits Cocoa and Gibby. I also love spending time with friends and family, soaking up the sun at the beach, or taking my jetski out for some fun on Lake Winnipesaukee in Moultonborough, New Hampshire.

My plans for pursuing my dental career include going back to school to study dental hygiene and soon be hired as Dr. Elias’s new hygienist.
