In 1977, I attended Quincy Vocational Technical School, earning a dental assisting certificate. Once in the dental field, I knew I wanted to treat and educate patients. Graduating from Bristol Community College in 1982 as a Dental Hygienist I worked in Boston, Cape Cod and Concord, New Hampshire. In 2004, I joined Dr’s Jane, Hedstrom and Ainslie’s practice.
In 2008, I received my bachelor’s degree in Integrated Health from New England College. To me, being able to promote good oral health for good overall health is my life’s work.
In my freetime, I enjoy being with my family, traveling, skiing and cooking. It is a joy to be part of this practice.

Hello my name is Alyce. I am one of Dr. Ainslie’s assistants. I have been a Dental Assistant for nineteen years. My current certification allows me to draw blood in the office. This allows our patients to have their own blood rich in protein plasma to be placed back in an extraction site or implant site. This helps increase healing and lessen post-op discomfort.
In my spare time I enjoy volunteering. Currently I participate in foster feline care for the Monadnock Humane Society. I was a former local volunteer Fire Fighter/EMT-1.
Jennifer is originally from Boston and moved to the area in 2017.
She graduated from Dental Assisting School in 2011 and has been assisting ever since.
She loves going to concerts, shopping and collecting plants!
