Doris Ann Folineo, RDH, BS

Hygienist

I’m originally from Northern New Jersey and began my career in dentistry at age 17 as an on-the-job trained dental assistant. I fell in love with dentistry from the start because I love people and I love working with my hands!

After moving to Southern Maryland, I graduated  Magne Cum Laude from the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery with a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene.  I love helping my patients overcome their fear of dentistry, and educating them on their dental treatment options.  

In my spare time, I like to read, have dinner with family and friends, and travel. 


Debbie

Hygienist

I am from Laurel, Maryland. My grandfather was a dentist and I decided that I wanted to be a hygienist when I was in high school. Now, I love how happy good oral health makes people and love seeing them smile.

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my family.


Krystal

Hygienist

I love helping people and seeing them smile. I began my career as an assistant but wanted to be more hands-on with my patients and their care.

I am a family person and love being around people. I also love cheering on the Redskins and traveling when I can.

I started my dental career working as a dental assistant, which helped me to learn about the industry. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to further my education to become a dental hygienist, so I now help patients lead healthier lives through comprehensive preventive care.

I have been in the dental field for a decade. Prior to my entry into dental hygiene, I worked as a dental assistant in Connecticut. In 2012, I attended the University of Bridgeport and received a bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene. I have been a registered dental hygienist since 2014. My passion is to ensure that my patients always feel 100% informed and comfortable during their visits. There is nothing more gratifying than educating and helping patients overcome their dental fears.

In my spare time, I love taking continuing education courses to expand my dental knowledge and spending quality time with my beautiful daughter.
