She earned her education from the University of Southern Maine.
Betsy currently lives in Standish. When she isn’t busy at work, she spends quality time with family, goes camping, and entertains.

She is certified in local anesthesia and dental lasers, has attended training courses with Advanced Hygiene Concepts for gum disease treatment, and achieved Master Level status at Dental Boot Kamp regarding communication and patient care.

Darlene, Dental Assistant / Assistant Team Leader
Darlene has actually been assisting Dr. Ted since he first opened the doors of Morgan-Hill Dental Care – well over 40 years ago!

When she isn’t busy at work, she spends her time kayaking, hiking, biking (both pedal and motor), doing karaoke, sewing, knitting, and tinkering with all sorts of other crafts.
