Michele

Dental Assistant

Michele, our energizer bunny, is usually found chairside with Dr. Ravin. If she is not assisting, she can be found greeting patients, preparing our clinical areas for patient care and answering questions about restorative treatment and oral health. Michele enjoys getting to know our patients "they are a wonderful group of people and I love to hear their stories." She has a calm, quite ease about her that makes our patients feel more relaxed during their appointments.

Mary Ann

Dental Hygienist

Mary Ann has been with Ravin Family Dental for over 25 years. In her career with the office, she has always appreciated how Dr. Ravin, his assistants, and front office all respect each other and work as a team.  Many of our patients are very loyal to her and enjoy catching up at their visits.  When asked what her favorite part of the job is, she would say, it is seeing the positive results that come from oral hygiene instruction and treatment which patients realize the value of good preventative and professional care. She is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and has taken courses at both Old Dominion University and UNE.

She and her husband live in Scarborough. They have 4 children and 10 grandchildren. When not with her family she is either hiking or traveling the world. In addition, she is very active in her local outdoor club and volunteers as the advertising co-coordinator for their newsletter.   


Carolyn

Joining our team in 2015, Carolyn feels extremely fortunate to be part of such an established practice, where everyone works together as a team to provide excellent dental care. She encourages patients to take control of their oral hygiene and keep their smile in great shape. Her favorite thing is making  genuine connections with each patient, helping them feel comfortable in their dental home.

Carolyn can easily be described as a bubbly, chatty, Disney fanatic—and it’s true! Most of her free time is spent volunteering with a middle school youth group, which is perfect for her. If she’s not talking about Disney, or the middle school kids, chances are Carolyn is telling you about her adorable cats, Smudge and Winnie


Valerie

Dental Hygienist

Valerie considers the most important part of her job to be teaching patients to take care of their beautiful smiles. For her, seeing someone understand why it’s important to keep their mouth healthy and making positive changes as a result, is wonderful. She finds joy in seeing a patient’s happiness and smiles when she has brought them one step closer to their dental goals.

Valerie is from northern Maine and grew up in the woods. As a result, she has a deep love of the outdoors. She often goes snowmobiling in the winter and boating in the summer with her significant other. Together they also enjoys hunting, fishing, and being with their families.
