“I was hired by Dr. Leggieri as his Personal Assistant and later promoted to Office Manager.

I am very dedicated to Apple Dental and Dr. Leggieri to create a culture to satisfy our patients and our Team Members and continue to improve the growth of our practice. My free time is spent enjoying my 4 grandchildren and attending their school functions and sports.” I also enjoy camping, snowmobiling and jet-skiing.
Richele B. – Hygienist
“My love for dental hygiene began at a very young age when I went for my regular cleanings as a child. There was just something about the dental environment that intrigued me and having a great hygienist was a plus too! I learned at an early age how important dental hygiene was and I just knew when I was older that it would become my profession as an adult. One of my passions in life is to help others. Being a dental hygienist allows me to do this each and every day. I enjoy spending my spare time outdoors, playing tennis, reading and spending time with my family and friends. ”

“I’ve always had the desire to work with people and know that I somehow had a positive impact in their lives. Early 2006 I began working as a dental assistant and realized early on that this was the career field where I would have many chances to greatly impact others. 2010 I was challenged to further my career as a licensed Expanded Functions Dental Assistant (EFDA). Over the past 12 years I have enjoyed coming to work knowing that I play an important part behind all of my patients’ smiles.”
