Cristina Galanis, Registered Dental Hygienist
I was attracted to dentistry because it allows me to educate patients on a part of their body that is often overlooked and neglected. In the future, I want to invent the greatest, most effective and easiest flossing device of all time! I earned my BS in Dental Hygiene in 2013 from the University of New England. I joined Dr. Login’s practice because he and his team have the sincere passion for comprehensive patient care. When I am not caring for my patients, I spend time with my family, friends, and family dog George, a long-haired Chihuahua. I also love long bike rides on back roads as well as traveling to other countries to experience diverse people and cultures.
Amanda Sanderson, Registered Dental Hygienist
Ever since I was little I loved going to the dentist; I used to beg to go all the time! Since then I have known I wanted to work in dentistry. I started my career in dentistry as a dental assistant and then transitioned into dental hygiene. I earned my AS in Dental Hygiene from Middlesex Community College in 2017. I plan on continuing my education in order to learn more about dentistry so I can provide the best care for my patients. Working with Dr. Login has been an incredible experience. Dr. Login has such an incredible passion for dentistry, unlike any dentist I have ever met! I am grateful and fortunate to be working with him, Dr. Feldman, Dr. Slater and Dr. Ford. I learn so much from each of them every day.
When I am not at the office I enjoy hiking, reading, spending time with my family and friends, and dancing! I also love traveling and vacationing at my parent’s lake house on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire.
Jose Ariel Quinones, Front Office Coordinator
It is my privilege to join Dr. Login’s established practice. I am impressed with the level of comprehensive care and dedication shown to all patients. I have 16 years of experience working in the field of dentistry. I started the journey working as a dental assistant and then transitioned to dental administration. I was born in Puerto Rico and traveled back and forth with family during my childhood. I studied business administration at the Colegio Universitario del Este in Moca, Puerto Rico, and then enlisted in the US Army and graduated as a 71L Administration Specialist. I love the field of dentistry, as I am passionate about helping others. One of my passions is participating in missions and traveling to many countries helping those less fortunate.
When I am not working, I love to spend quality time with my wife Melani, my daughter Sarai and my son Abimael. I also love to read, cook, and travel to Nantucket with my family. I look forward to meeting and assisting you.
Minda Login, Front Office Coordinator
Welcome to our practice! Our patients are our friends and part of our community. We always treat them with respect and kindness. We also love to laugh with our patients! Our staff has a great time here and loves to connect with patients through stories and laughter.
In my spare time, I love Zumba, reading mystery novels, and shopping for lipstick!
Kelly Ford, Suite 407 Front Office Coordinator
I have been Dr. Ford’s office manager since 2003 and greatly enjoy serving our patients. Prior to holding this position, I taught elementary school in Lexington, Massachusetts for thirty-one years. My teaching experience provided me with many of the skills necessary to manage a dental office.
I graduated from Scripps College in Claremont, California with a degree in Art History, and received my Master of Arts in Teaching from George Washington University.
I am an active lay leader at the Wellesley Hills Congregational Church where I serve on several ministry teams. I’m also a founding member and on the Board of Directors of the African-Indian Alliance: A Siddi Partnership, a non-profit organization providing educational services to the Siddi people living in isolated villages in southwestern India. I love to travel and have been privileged to visit India, Honduras, New Zealand, Sweden, Denmark, and Ireland, as well as many places in the United States.
Tom and I have two grown sons, a daughter-in-law and an adorable granddaughter.
Dental Care Assistants and Interns
Ameer Aljuhani, Dental Assistant
Prior to completing my Bachelor degree in Biology from Northeastern University, I was lucky enough to spend my senior year’s internship at Dr. Login’s office. That opportunity allowed me to confirm and demonstrate my desire to pursue dentistry. After earning my degree, I joined the practice as a full-time dental assistant and became a part of a remarkable and passionate team dedicated to providing each patient with a comprehensive and personalized care. In my free time, I enjoy running, playing soccer, playing chess, sketching, watching movies and traveling.
Brendan Teebagy, Dental Assistant
While completing my undergraduate education at the College of the Holy Cross, I began to realize that I wanted to pursue a career in dentistry. I graduated from Holy Cross with a degree in Psychology and a minor in American Sign Language/Deaf Studies - both of which I believe will be very helpful in the dental field. More recently, I have finished my science courses at Harvard University Extension. Becoming a dental assistant intern at Dr. Login’s office has been a great experience, as I’ve been fortunate to help provide quality oral health care alongside these very skilled dentists. In my spare time I enjoy fishing, golfing, watching sports and spending time with my family.
Anxhela Kapaj, Dental Assistant
Originally from Albania, I moved to the United States in 2008. I was very fortunate to be able to finish highschool and my undergraduates studies here in Massachusetts. Upon receiving my Bachelors of Science in Biology at UMASS Amherst, I knew I wanted to get involved in something that was challenging, yet rewarding - something that would spark my desire to learn everyday. Working at Dr. Login’s practice has given me all that and more. During my free time I like to stay active, listen to music and dance. I love spending time with family and friends!
Shanna Miller, Dental Assistant
I began my secondary education at Merrimack College. I majored in criminology with the goal of pursuing a career in forensic odontology. My goal was to work as a dentist and consult as a forensics investigator. A semester later, I had decided to pursue dentistry full-time, more specifically oral surgery. This decision came after the realization that I’d rather help people on a personal level, which forensics does not guarantee. Upon the conclusion of my secondary schooling, I was offered a position at this exquisite, state-of-the-art practice. I cannot think of a better establishment to have begun my journey to graduate school. The Doctors are fervent adherents of comprehensive care. Their profound love for this field is both emboldening and inspiring. Outside of the office I am either playing basketball, working out, making music, writing music, watching movies, or playing with my overactive cat and kittens.
