Joanne Cruz- Administrative Assistant

She/Her

Joanne Cruz serves as our wonderful Administrative Assistant. She provides excellent customer service to every patient that comes through our doors. Here’s what she has to say about working here:

“I LOVE being a part of the Sweet Spot Dental team! I consider myself lucky just to work with this amazing team. I mean, who doesn't love Dr. Greenberg? He is someone who can make you want to believe in yourself more. I am very grateful to be working with people who are very patient and supportive. People that help make coming to work a meaningful, satisfying, and productive experience!”

Joanne’s pre-pandemic life was filled with volunteering, organizing outreach programs for street children in her hometown, and singing at weddings. Since the pandemic, this Philippines native has stepped up her cooking game and even gotten praise from her mom for her amazing Adobo, a native Filipino dish. Joanne also has two dogs, three parrots, a sugar glider, and a younger brother. "So I basically live in a zoo,” she jokes.

Ashley Benjamin - Certified Dental Assistant

She/Her

Originally from Georgia, Ashley moved to Boston to support a family member and see what city life has to offer. Throughout the years of odd jobs in retail and working as a server, she always felt the desire to have more under her profession belt. Knowing that she always achieves anything she puts her mind to, 1 year ago she arrived at Lincoln Tech to learn how to be a Certified Dental Assistant and proved that no matter her grades in High School, she excelled in the program and shocked even herself with how much she can achieve.

Ashley is known for her smile that lights up a room, her bubbly personality and her ability to make someone’s day.   As her aunt Chandra always said – her personality will get her far, and it truly has.

“I’m more than grateful and honored to be working for Dr. Greenberg, this is the next step to succeed and thrive and he has opened that door, and I’m so happy.”

Jesse Buhia- Dental Insurance Specialist

He/Him

As the dental insurance specialist at our practice, Jesse Buhia uses his unique abilities of observation, and cool, calm and collected manner to always look for ways to make himself grow and improve. He is on a mission to always continue learning and growing one day at a time.

"I really like working with Dr. Greenberg. Just with the fact that he is nothing short of amazing when it comes to organizing his dental practice. Working under him is what most employees would hope to be working for, someone who is very approachable and accommodating. And this trait of his doesn't just end with his staff, it also extends to the way he treats his patients. Honestly, I think I could really learn a lot from him, which makes me feel excited every time our day starts. There are challenges, but we face it as a team with Dr. Greenberg at the lead."

Born and raised in the beautiful islands of the Philippines, Jesse spends most of his days off cooking (especially when his mom, the critic, is around) and playing shooting video games. He even once thought of going pro with one of the games that he plays!

Melissa Perry - Registered Dental Hygienist

She/Her

Melissa serves us as our rockstar Dental Hygienist. Originally from Portsmouth, Rhode Island, Melissa used to work as a waitress while attending college and decided to pursue dental hygiene after feeling inspired by her grandmother who was a dental hygienist in the area she grew up in.

While attending Community College of Rhode Island, she enjoyed very challenging courses and became a tutor after finishing them. Through teaching and getting to talk to a large variety of people, this only affirmed that dental hygiene was the right profession for her.

When not focusing on oral hygiene, Melissa’s interests include: exploring Cambridge, tennis, running and spending time with her labradoodle Lilly.

 

Kelley Darakjy - Patient Care Coordinator

She/Her

As our Patient Care Coordinator of Sweet Spot Dental, Kelley puts her 15 years of working in restaurants to good use by providing exceptional customer service and a welcoming demeanor from the moment our patients walk in the door.

Growing up, Kelley had no positive associations with the dentist:

“It certainly wasn’t an industry I saw myself in, but Dr. G’s approach to dentistry and patient care is something I’ve never encountered before, leading with compassion and understanding. I knew right away that I wanted to be a part of that. He fosters an environment where learning and growing are encouraged with patience and genuine kindness.”

Kelley grew up in Wellfleet and has been living in the Boston area with her sister for the past 10 years.

“I take the beach life mentality with me everywhere I go and would almost always prefer to be in the water.”

When not working she can usually be found outdoors, dedicating her free time to her rescue dog, Shelby. Her and her boyfriend love exploring different New England trails and foraging for mushrooms. As soon as it gets too cold though she’s indoors with a book or three (preferably with a cute dog on her lap).
