My role as patient coordinator allows me to oversee the schedule for patients and our staff, communicate with patients to keep up routine visits, organize the schedule, and help with patient financing and accounts. Working on a team is very rewarding for me, especially when we’re helping our patients to live healthier, happier lives. We all are able to help each other see and meet goals, which makes the office grow stronger and better every day.
I grew up on Cape Cod, with my amazing family. All of my brothers and sisters and I called the beach our home away from home. We lived next door to my grandmother, and became very close to her. Summer is my favorite season of all time. I love to run, bike, and swim. I ran track for most of my life, where I found a passion for long distance. It seems to be the best stress reliever (and the best work out)! My boyfriend and I have the most beautiful black lab named Jake, whom we adore and spoil. We love to go hiking and walking with him.
Gianna St Fiacre
My role as our office’s business manager requires meticulous and continuous attention to detail. I focus on maintaining a sound business plan through development, implementation, and execution of growth strategies. It’s such a pleasure to be a part of Dr. Beal’s practice. I love seeing the wide smiles and hearing laughter from patients entering the office. Our team is top notch as well. Each person’s confidence and commitment to excellence make this practice run practically by itself!
When I’m not working, I’m gardening, cooking, roasting my own coffee, walking my dog Henry, and spending time with my family.
I graduated from Forsyth Dental Hygiene School in 2006. As a hygienist, I’m always helping people figure out how to manage and care for their oral health and well-being the best way possible. Each patient is unique, and so is his or her treatment plan, which adds an extra challenge for me to meet. We are like a big family, working together to provide the best possible care to our patients. We all respect each other greatly. We know how important each job is in the office.
At home, I have one very fluffy cat named Atticus. I am very active, so I can often be found riding my bike, running, and doing yoga. I also love cooking and making big dinners for friends, and I’m always taking photos. I have traveled a lot in the US and can’t wait to travel more outside the country.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I grew up in central New Jersey. After two years as a nursing major, I decided on dental hygiene as a career. I transferred to Manor College in Philadelphia and then returned to New Jersey where I practiced in a large multi-specialty practice for four years. After a short stint in Ithaca, NY, I decided to settle in Boston. I enjoy seeing patients who have not been to a dentist in a while, whether they’re a new patient to our office or someone returning after some time. It feels great to welcome them, and I think they leave feeling better that they took the first step in getting their oral health back on track. Of course, it is also nice to see my regular recall patients that I have come to know over the years.
I live with my husband Kevin. I love to travel and spend time with my family. I enjoy weekends hanging in the city or doing things around New England like hiking in New Hampshire and spending time on the coast of Maine. More recently, much of my free time is spent being a new mom to a beautiful baby girl! We were happy to welcome baby Vivienne in 2013.
Assistant Office Manager
As assistant office manager I am enthused to be able to build bonds with current patients and prospective patients. I'm passionate about helping patients achieve happiness through dentistry. I love to help patients with their dental needs and I always aim to exceed their expectaions. I am confident our team of dedicated dental professionals are providing our patients with the highest quality of care.
My home is in East Boston. I am a proud mother of a beautiful little girl and baby boy. On my days off, I like to spend time with my family. I like to go to beaches and lakes, barbecue, visit museums and galleries, watch movies, and dine out at new places.
My favorite part of being a dental assistant is watching a patient’s reaction after his or her visit, whether it is the restoration of a tooth or just an exam to determine what steps need to be taken to improve the patient’s dental health. Patients leave the office with smiles and a sense of security, knowing that we will take care of them and provide them with a service that exceeds their expectations. I feel privileged to be working with people who love what they do and genuinely care for the patients who walk through our door.
I like to try a little bit of everything at least once, like skydiving! I love food and baking and I’m my happiest when I’m either eating or dancing! I rock climb and do a little bit of hiking with my close friends. I love to sew and make costumes or alter clothes when I have the chance, if I’m not reading. But most of all, I love a good laugh!
