Front Desk Coordinator

Alaina started out in the dental field as a dental assistant.  She received her dental assisting education at Massasoit Community College.  She has been here since 2006 in both roles as a dental assistant and then as our front desk coordinator.  She brings invaluable knowledge and experience from her clinical experience that she is able to apply to her administrative role.  She is the voice of the practice.  Parents often find much comfort after speaking to her because she is able to answer most of their dental questions from being in this office for many years and having been a chairside clinical assistant also.

Registered Dental Assistant

Jordan worked as a preschool teacher for almost 8 years before switching careers into dentistry.  She knew she wanted to work in a pediatric dental practice after finishing her dental assisting program at Lincoln Tech Institute.  She is able to apply all the tools she had acquired  while working in daycare with children. 



Registered Dental Hygienist

Jennifer was born into dentistry. Her mother had a long-lasting career in the dental field.  So it was only natural, that Jen would follow in her mother's footsteps.  Initially, Jen received her dental assisting education at Massasoit Community College.  She worked in the office as a dental assistant for many years before deciding to further her education in dental hygiene.  She received her dental hygiene degree at Vermont Technical College and returned to the practice as our dental hygienist.

Insurance Coordinator

Camille Leighton hails from New York and we are lucky to have her call Massachusetts “home” now. She has been in the dental field for over 15 years, most of it in pediatric dentistry. She has a wealth of knowledge, having worked in both the clinical and administrative areas of the dental office.  She is well-rounded and able to answer any questions since she has experience as a pediatric dental assistant and an insurance coordinator. We are fortunate to have her as a member of our team. 

Happy Holidays from Easton Pediatric Dentistry!
