Joanne Simpson

Registered Dental Hygienist

I am a 1995 graduate of the Hudson Valley Community College Dental Hygiene program, and completed my local anesthesia training at Mt. Ida College in 2005. Being part of a practice that is dedicated to providing a full measure of service to every patient makes me feel very fortunate. Keeping our patients comfortable is central to the treatment we provide. I am committed to the early detection of dental disease, and educating my patients and the public about the oral-overall health connection. I am past president of the Massachusetts Dental Hygienists Association and have been a National Delegate to the American Dental Hygienists Association. I have been actively involved in helping influence legislators on patient and hygienist issues. I also serve in a local health clinic providing dental care to people who cannot afford dental treatment which is very important to me. I was the recipient of the Massachusetts Dental Society “Hygienist of the Year Award” in 2003. “In addition to treating our patients with the best professional care, Dr. Gotterer works together with our entire team in a caring and sharing environment. I love coming to work everyday!”
