Rita Allen

Dental Hygienist
Rita has been a member of our dental team since 2001, and has been a practicing hygienist for more than 30 years. She is a graduate of Forsyth School of Dental Hygiene and Northeastern University.
Rita’s first priority is to create a comfortable, compassionate environment for our patients. She loves getting to know patients on a personal level, answering their questions and providing the best individualized treatment. Gentle but thorough, her goals are to provide each patient with a great experience, along with the skills and knowledge to reach and maintain optimal oral health.
Outside of work, Rita enjoys spinning, cross-country skiing and hiking. But for her, nothing is better than time spent with friends and family.

Calandra Murray

Dental Hygienist
My name is Calandra; I usually go by Cally. I attended Middlesex Community College and have been practicing dental hygiene for 27 years. I love what I do and enjoy turning what may usually be an apprehensive experience into a relaxed, educated and friendly experience patients look forward to sticking with. I also enjoy helping patients to understand how their oral health and medical health are related, and love working with patients of all ages. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my three grown children and my large family. I also enjoy doing volunteer work in my community.

Kim is the newest member of our team. She has been assisting for over a decade now. She was formally trained at the Bryman Institute in Brighton. On Kim’s spare time she likes to go hiking and swimming.

Christina

Front Desk Administrator
My name is Christina.  Although I am new to the dental field I have over 10 years experience in the medical field. In 2009 I began working for a well respected family physician in Winchester as a medical secretary and medical assistant. During that time, I built a rapport with patients and I became passionate about the medical field.  In addition to having an outgoing and bubly personality, I am empathetic and find it rewarding to help others.
When I am not in the office, I volunteer in the community and spend my time with my family and friends.
I am excited for this new chapter of my career in the dental field with Dr. Ibrahim and his team!
