Although her love of dentistry was here, in N.H. , her love for her family became her top priority as her 90+ yr old Grandmother now needed 24/hr care. Shelly moved with her 4 children to Maine, where she became a caregiver for her Nana. This new role ,made her heart full, knowing her children would also get to know their GreatGrandmother. Shelly cherished this priceless relationship and knew her kids would benefit from her wisdom as well. In the spring of 2013, as the snow blanketed the western Maine mountains with almost 3ft of snow, her Nana passed away, peacefully in her home surrounded by family. Shelly has now returned to the seacoast and to us, here at Epping General Dentistry. Shelly has a new role as she retired her gloves and mask and will be delighted to greet you with a smile at the front desk. She will answer your questions or help to calm any fears you may have about your dental treatment.

Her four children (Julie, Meagan, Milissa & Michael) have always been the highlights of her life!
