"Dr. Palioca and everyone at the Advanced Dental Practice office is absolutely wonderful! It is a comfortable office with the nicest and most competent people. They are friendly and talented-a rare combination. Dr. Palioca and his staff use state of the art methods. The cleanliness is second to none.
The hygienists are thorough but gentle. None of that post-soreness after a cleaning at this office! He and his staff are great with adults and kids. His referral circle is just as good as he is. My daughter and son both needed an oral surgeon and of course Dr. Palioca recommended the very best! It is a friendly homey place with state of the art methods! From the minute you are greeted, you know you are welcomed and in great hands!
Jean Taddeo - Office Manager
Jean is a staple of the Advanced Dental Practices office! She has been in this office since 1960. For twenty-five years, she has been office manager and dental assistant to Dr. Palioca and his patients. Since graduating from the Boston School of Dental Nursing several years ago, Jean has continued to expand her skills with new dental technologies. She appreciates working in a practice in which state-of-the-art technology and modern procedures are the norm. Even more, she loves the camaraderie between the doctor, staff, and patients.
Jean has been married for over 50 years. Her Yorkshire Terriers have a special place in her heart.
Paula Gauthier - Office Administrator
Paula has been maintaining our front office like clockwork for more than ten years. Our patients can count on her to answer questions about insurance benefits and to optimize their reimbursements. She will go the extra mile to maximize your covered services.
Jill Crisafi - CDA
After earning her associate's degree in liberal arts, Jill continued her education to receive certification as a dental assistant. She is also certified for X-rays, so when she isn't working at the front desk, Jill likes a hands-on role caring for patients. The diversity of front office and back office work keeps Jill on her toes and smiling.
Susan Denehy - RDH
Susan has worked as a dental hygienist with Dr. Palioca since 2003. She graduated Magna Cum Laude with her associates' degree in science and a dental hygiene certification from Bristol Community College in 2003. Susan's passion for the dental field stems from her own personal life experiences as a child. Her goal is for patients to enjoy a relaxing dental visit and come away with the proper knowledge to achieve optimal oral health.
Christine Jasset - RDH, BS
Our dental hygienist Christine has worked with our patients since 2004, though she has more than fifteen years of experience in dentistry.
