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.

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!
