Meet The Staff

 
 

Jordyn – Surgical Assistant

Shannon – Surgical Assistant

Shannon joined CCOMS in July of 2022.  She left the banking world after 6 years to follow her dreams of being in the dental field and pursuing a more meaningful career path.  She wanted to transition back into health care to make a difference in patients’ lives.  Through the years Shannon searched for the opportunity to move into the dental field.  Joining CCOMS fills that opportunity to work with patients.  Shannon brings a gift to patients who are frightened and puts their fears at ease.  CCOMS has not only given her the ability to give back to the community but also a great team that has developed into a work family.  In Shannon’s free time she loves fishing, swimming and spending time at the lake with her son, and going to Salem MA on the weekends.

Colleen Symonds – Practice Leader 

Colleen has been in the Oral and Maxillofacial profession since 1992.  Starting out as a surgical assistant she then evolved with the primary focus of dental implants.  Through the years Colleen has helped bridge the communication and education between the surgical and restorative offices.  She developed and implemented educational programs both at the state and national levels as part of her work with major implant companies and the ADIA.  Colleen stepped away from the private oral surgery practice to work at Dartmouth Health supporting both Oral and Maxillofacial Plastic Surgeons on full jaw resection and transplant to support implant-supported prosthesis.  She has a strong passion for working with patients to guide them through the dental implant process from the initial consultation through the surgical experience and the transition back to their general dentist for restorative treatment.
