She is knowledgeable about administration and equally skilled as a surgical assistant. She has assisted Dr. Ross in all aspects of surgeries he performs. Patients love her ability to answer all their questions competently. Jess has a little girl who is the sunshine of her life. She takes and shares wonderful pictures of her that make us all gushy. Feel free to ask Jess any question and she’ll be sure to get you the right answer. She is as cool as a cucumber and we believe every office needs someone like her. We are so lucky to have her.

Her favorite things are learning every day from Dr. Ross and assisting the patients. She feels like a “STAR” when patients return and remember her meaningful interventions. She enjoys knowing that she played a part in the progress patients make toward improved oral health. Kelly has a particular interest in patient education and will go to great lengths to ensure all patients are always well informed regarding their progress. Kelly is an activity junkie. She loves surfing, spear fishing, mudding, and all things creative. Although a Virginia native, we think she really belongs where Jess grew up in Vermont. She is our team youngin’ and brings an abundance of energy and fun to every day at the office.
