Brenda works chairside, helping Dr. Ravin with restorative procedures. She also makes sure our patients are as comfortable as possible and has been doing so for over 15 years. Brenda enjoys meeting and building relationships with people. She loves to see all our practice’s families grow over the years. Brenda looks forward to each person’s visits as a time to hear what’s been happening in their life, their travels, and their future plans.
Brenda goes home at night to her spouse, two sons, and three family dogs.
Michele, our energizer bunny, is usually found chairside with Dr. Ravin. If she is not assisting, she can be found cleaning and preparing our clinical areas for patient care, updating patient medical histories and answering questions about restorative treatment and oral health. Michele has developed some wonderful, professional relations with our patients. She has a calm, quite ease about her that makes our patients feel more relaxed at the completion of their appointments.
When time permits, Michele loves to go running, kayaking or hiking. Her other outdoor interests include sledding and snowshoeing with her kids, though she’ll also take curling up with them to read a book. In the summer, she enjoys camping and going to the lake.
Mary Ann has been with Ravin Family Dental for over 20 years. In her career with the office, she has always appreciated how Dr. Ravin, his assistant’s, 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 instructions, treatment and helping patients to realize the value of good preventative and professional care. When she isn't providing amazing care to her patients she can be found hiking or traveling the world. She is happily marries with four children and 10 grandchildren who she adores spending time with. In addition, she is very active in her local outdoor club and volunteers as the advertising co-coordinator for their newsletter.
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 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 little rascal of a cat named Smudge! Smudge now has a buddy named Winnie.
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. That encouraged her love of the outdoors, so she often goes snowmobiling in the winter and boating in the summer with her significant other. She also enjoys hunting, fishing, and being with her family.
