Dr. Robert Blake
As the son of a small business owner, Dr. Blake was destined to run his own business. He grew up making house calls (to fix broken appliances) with his dad, and he always enjoyed the resulting mix of problem solving and helping others. This common-sense, hands-on approach is what has allowed him to serve as an important member of the Beverly Farms community for more than 30 years.Read More
Dr. Lauren Gadeberg
Born in New York and raised in Maine, Dr. Gadeberg is more than happy to be back in the Northeast. She enjoys living in Boston and loves being close to friends and family. Most importantly, she appreciates the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of Dr. Blake and to work with his amazing team.Read More
The experienced clinical team at Beverly Farms Dental is lucky to have Susan as one of our Registered Dental Hygienists, as she brings more than 30 years of experience to the practice, most of those years spent right here at our office! A native of Gloucester, MA, Susan attended Classical High School and graduated from hygiene school at Middlesex College. Through this education and countless hours of continuing education over the years, Susan is able to provide unmatched care to each patient she sees. But what patients will tell you that makes their visit truly special and keeps them coming back to our office, is the genuine care for her patients’ well-being. Susan would be the first to tell you that the relationships she has built with patients over the years is what she values most.
Outside of the office, Susan is very active! You will find her spending time with her family or working on any number of hobbies such as gardening, yoga, or making one of her regular treks to the islands of Turks and Caicos. One other very interesting personal note, Susan and her husband owned and operated a flower shop in Gloucester for 20 years.
Experience and a commitment to advanced training are two of the core principles that our team is built upon. Poliana is yet another one of our team members that we are proud to say embodies both. Poliana was trained in Dental Assisting early in her life and has already built a very successful 12-year long career. In that time, she has acquired advanced training and expertise in many aspects of general dentistry as well as the fields of endodontics, implantology, periodontics, and oral surgery. With the surgical placement of dental implants being a core service our office is uniquely positioned to provide our patients, Poliana’s prior expertise in this very important service are of critical importance. Rest assured, however complex your needs may be, you are in competent hands with Poliana by your side.
Poliana, a native of Somerville, MA, spends much of her free time traveling and staying active, whether that be outdoors taking long hikes or perhaps a trip to any one of the area’s beautiful beaches.
There is no problem to big or small that Leslie cannot tackle through the experience and expertise that she has acquired over the course of her 45-year career working in the dental industry. A graduate of Peabody High School, Leslie first entered the dental industry as a way to make money during high school at a dental office she was first introduced to by her older sister -- also working in the field. The rest, as they say, is history. Since that time, Leslie has developed into a go-to source for information and solutions related to all dental matters, both clinical and, most especially, operational.
Day in, day out, Leslie helps our clients plan ahead for their dental care and ultimately achieve the oral health and beautiful smiles they desire and deserve. Often times, this involves creating financial solutions and coordinating insurance benefits to make our patients dreams a reality. For those who have not had the pleasure, we look forward to you having the chance to work with Leslie so that she can help you too.
When Leslie isn’t helping our patients get the care they deserve, you will find her hosting parties for friends and family or giving back to those less fortunate. One particular project that is near and dear to her is the opportunity she has had over the years to help build homes in third world countries. To date, she has helped to build 8 homes for those in need in places like Guatemala!
Ensuring that Beverly Farms Dental clients are well taken care of before, during and after care is completed is the chief concern of our Patient Care Coordinator. Coordinating convenient appointments, answering questions on the care that will be provided or, perhaps, presenting flexible financial solutions so that our patients get the care they deserve, are all things that Janine is well equipped to manage.
Janine is a graduate of Umass Amherst with a major in political science and a minor in history. She draws from an immense amount of practical experience coordinating complex business systems and logistics in her most recent position of 24 years that focused on building customer relationships and supply chain management. To say that those skills translate well into her current role, would be an understatement. These skills, combined with her passion for helping others, has enabled her to be a wonderful asset to our team and an advocate for our patients. We are fortunate to have her in such a pivotal role.
It’s no surprise with Janine coming from a family of 11(!) that she enjoys spending time with her family. She describes herself as being married to the love of her life for 35 years and as a proud parent of two well-adjusted, successful children with huge hearts. Golfing, boating, traveling, and working out at the gym are all the things you will find Janine doing in her spare time.
Donna is a member of our highly experienced dental hygiene team bringing with her 23 years of experience -- 18 of which have been right here at Beverly Farms Dental. A native of Beverly and a graduate of Beverly High School, Donna went on to earn hear hygiene degree from Westbrook College. With her abundance of experience in the field of dentistry, close ties to the local community, and a general calmness about her, you will soon be feeling right at home at your next hygiene visit. The relationships she has formed over the years and countless clients that she has helped to achieve and maintain excellent oral health have undoubtedly proven to be the perfect combination for a career that has been as rewarding for her as it has been for her patients’ well-being.
In Donna’s free time, you will find her spending time with her husband Bryan, daughter Brooke, and son Reid -- along with the family cat, Ziggy. Donna also enjoys staying active, which includes things like participating in a women's softball league, cross country skiing, running, reading, boating, and cheering on the New England Patriots. Go Pats!
Beverly Farms Dental is proud to call Danielle a member of our highly competent clinical team. With nearly 15 years of experience in Dental Assisting, 12 of which have been right here, Danielle brings an abundance of relevant experience in today’s quickly evolving profession as well as a wealth of knowledge acquired from formal training and extensive continuing education in all aspects of clinical dentistry, from infection control to digital impression taking, and so much more. Beverly Farms Dental patients take comfort in knowing that our team brings a great deal of expertise to the table to make sure that each client experience is first class in every aspect, and Danielle plays a critical role in making sure that happens. When Daniele is asked what she likes most about her job, she cites the interactions with patients as being her favorite along with staying active as part of a fast-paced, exciting work environment focused on new and innovative ways to improve the patient experience.
Danielle certainly enjoys life outside of the office, primarily spending time with her family. When she can find some time for herself, she loves to stay active participating in any number of fitness classes.
We are all very fortunate to have Ashneel as one of our dental hygienists at Beverly Farms Dental. Ashneel is a native of Revere and attended Mount Ida College for Dental Hygiene. Now with over 8 years of experience as a Dental Hygienist, you can be sure that you are in the best of hands when being cared for by Ashneel. But, while her training both during formal education as well as the countless hours spent advancing her career through continuing education surely won’t go unnoticed, what you are likely to enjoy the most is her caring and calm demeanor that is focused on not just your oral health but also your overall health -- the two being so intimately connected. She thoroughly believes, as all of us do, in the importance of that point and you can be sure in the time you spend with her that she will make it her mission to help you achieve optimal levels of both.
Outside of dentistry, Ashneel spends much of her free time traveling. Ashneel will tell you that what she enjoys most is having the opportunity to take spontaneous adventures -- whether they be near or far. Her favorite destination thus far has been her recent trip to Iceland. She wanted to challenge herself by traveling alone and so she did, touring the island and experiencing all of the natural beauty the country has to offer.
