As a student: Maisonet earned her dental hygiene degree in 2001 from Montgomery County Community College in Blue Bell, PA., and is currently enrolled in a graduate degree program at Penn State University. “I started my career at the age of 15 and fell in love with teeth. While I loved my dental assisting role, I decided to expand my education so that I could provide direct patient care.”

On a daily basis: She practices dental hygiene and expanded functions dental assisting for Newtown Dentistry for Kids & Newborn Orthodontics, and is the office manager for the practice. She is also an adjunct faculty member for Montgomery County Community College. “I take pride in actively participating in initiatives that lead to an improvement in children’s oral health. I am fortunate to be a part of a dental team whose main focus is disease prevention. The positive results we experience on a daily basis inspires me to continue serving in my preventive role in the hopes of continuing to promote good oral health in pediatric patients.”

About her: She has two children, Rebecca and Nathan. “When I am not working on a project related to work, recording a lecture, attending a meeting, or grading papers, my family and I love to spend our weekends and evenings together watching a good movie or competing against each other on a variety of family board games.”
