Meet the Team
Christina serves as the Treatment Coordinator for Columbian Square Dental. Christina obtained her bachelor’s degree in Health Education from Bridgewater State College and soon became interested in whether the dental industry would provide her an outlet to take advantage of her interests in business while at the same time fueling her passion for helping others. Wanting to explore the field further, Christina became a Certified Dental Assistant (CDA) and quickly familiarized herself with helping people improve their oral health while simultaneously learning about the many complexities associated with the dayto-day operations of a dental practice. While she still maintains her CDA accreditation through an abundance of continuing education, Christina now spends most of her time in our business office helping patients plan ahead for their dental care and ultimately achieve the oral health and beautiful smiles they desire and deserve. Christina is our point person for all things related to treatment coordination, financing, and dental insurancejust to name a few of her specialties.
Outside of work, Christina stays very active as the proud mother of her son, Brennan (‘Terrible Twos’ anyone?)! Christina and her husband, Aidan, also enjoy spending time with their friends and family as well as traveling. The Caribbean Islands of St. Lucia, St Marteen, and the Caymen Islands are just a few of their favorite destinations. One other notable travel destination for Christina occurs each year in the fall when her and her husband, along with their friends, all of whom are dedicated New England Patriots fans, venture off to an away game.

Dawn, originally with our Kerr Dental Associates office in Plymouth, MA, joined the team at Columbian Square Dental bringing with her wealth of knowledge from general business operations, partially acquired through her degrees in Information Systems and Economics, to dental specific expertise, gathered through years of experience in the industry. When asking Dawn what she likes most about her job, Dawn explains, “I find that running a small business requires me to be nimble and adaptable as the demands of the job are always changing.
However, it is this daytoday variability that I think I enjoy most about the job. Of course, dentistry is one of those fields where we are constantly interacting with our clients (our patients) to maintain optimal health and/or aid in solving dental or overall health issues and it is extremely rewarding, on a personal level, to see the results of those efforts.”
Dawn is a longtime Plymouth resident where she has enjoyed raising three children with her husband, Peter. These days, her children reside across the country, from Boston to Texas.
Outside of work and spending time with her family and friends, Dawn enjoys a wide array of hobbies including cooking and traveling. When asked about her favorites dishes to prepare, Dawn names pecan pie and shrimp, clam, or lobster chowders. As for traveling, her favorite cities both domestic and afar include Charleston, South Carolina, Washington DC, Paris, and Hanoi (Vietnam).
