Meet the Colchester Dental Group Staff
I work for Dr. Zase as his personal chairside assistant. I've been working with the Colchester Dental Group for over 30 years having started just after birth. I am qualified to take all x-rays as well as many other expanded duties. I've lived in Colchester or the surrounding area for many years. My favorite pastime is training my two Australian Shepherds Kim and Killian to compete in dog agility.
Dr. Zase and I have a great working relationship, as is evidence by the amount of time we have worked together. We work as partners and he makes sure to include me as a valuable member of the team. We strive to keep our patients happy and comfortable while we design and deliver new and improved smiles. We participate in lots of continuing education courses and are always informed about the latest and best techniques in dentistry. The Colchester Dental Group is staffed by a terrific group of dedicated people and is a wonderful place to work.
