Lori

Registered Dental Hygienist


I am a local native of Buffalo and graduate of Erie Community College in 1991 with a degree in Dental Hygiene.  I have been a part of the Amherst Dentistry team since 2008.  It has always been my professional goal to help patients achieve their optimal oral health in a comfortable manner.  I enjoy creating a rapport and genuinely caring for the people and families that I have the privilege of treating every day.  I have received advanced training and certification to administer local anesthetics, nitrous oxide sedation and to use Diode Laser for assisted Periodontal Therapy.

When I'm not taking care of patients, I am enjoying time with my husband, Dave, our two children, Ben and Audrey, and our newest member Sadie - our dog.


Nicole

Registered Dental Hygienist


I was born and raised here in Buffalo, NY.  I have been in the dental field for 3 years, and a Registered Dental Hygienist for 2 years.  I eagerly became a part of the wonderful Amherst Dentistry team in September, 2015.  As a dental hygienist, my role is to educate patients on how to improve their oral health, but I take pride in going above and beyond to help to empower my patients to do and be the very best they can.  I bring my passion for good oral health each and every time I sit with my loyal patients at their hygiene appointments.  

When I have some free time, I enjoy being outdoors: biking, hiking, kayaking, camping, you name it!  My favorite place to be is Allegany State Park.


Lidiya

Dental Assistant


With eight years of experience as a dental assistant, I have assisted in a multitude of routine and reconstructive dental procedures and have mastered my responsibilities of comforting and prepping patients.  I am passionate about patient comfort and I always aim to demonstrate a professional and caring attitude towards each and every patient I have the pleasure of treating.

My greatest strengths are my fortitude, compassion and leadership; I thrive on challenges, particularly those that involve lengthy and delicate dental procedures. I have always demonstrated drive and motivation and have done extensive volunteer work for Christian Services where I broke the record by completing over 3,000 hours of service.

I immigrated from Belarus with my family when I was eleven years old.  I am fluent in Belorussian and Russian and also speak Ukrainian and Polish. I live in Amherst with my teacup poodle Woofy. In my free time, I enjoy bowling, playing volleyball and badminton and I love hiking throughout Western New York's nature trails.
