Financial Coordinator / Office Manager
I began working with Dr. Hallstead 25 years ago. As our financial coordinator, I meet with all our new patients and go over their financial plan, insurance and payments. Since we believe that everyone deserves a healthy smile, we work with patients’ budgets to meet all their dental needs. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband, children and grandchildren.
I am dedicated to providing the very best oral health care for patients, from patient screening and assessment of oral health conditions to gentle and effective cleanings and periodontal care. The most enjoyable aspect of my job is working with people and providing a valuable health care service while establishing a trusting relationship with patients. Over the past 25 years, I’ve met a lot of really great people, and those friendships are what makes coming to the office each day so much fun. At home, my free time is spent outside enjoying my flower garden, hiking or kayaking. I also love cooking for family and friends, wine tastings and being involved in my community.
I feel privileged to be able to work with a group of people who are truly dedicated to helping others achieve healthy and beautiful smiles. I graduated from Monroe Community College in 1997 with a degree in Dental Hygiene. I am very passionate about the profession of dentistry and providing comprehensive, individualized care to every patient. I am also committed to professional growth and development, and to sharing my knowledge with patients in order to help them achieve optimal oral health. It’s such a joy to get to know each individual and build trusting relationships. I recently moved to Canandaigua and I am embracing the beautiful Finger Lakes Region. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my two daughters, Leah and Anna.
Since starting in the fall of 2014, getting to know all of the patients at the office has been such a joy; they are all so unique and I love catching up and joking around with them at each appointment. Seeing them leave with a smile on their face just makes my day! It is also refreshing to work with a doctor who the patients can relate and open up to. They can truly see his passion for dentistry because it shows in their smiles! I live in Farmington, NY and enjoy watching football, especially the Buffalo Bills with my friends! I like to keep active by working out but I’m also perfectly content staying in and reading.
I am beyond humble to be part of such a compassionate and supportive dental family. I have been in the Dental Field for 10 years. I am committed to providing the best dental care to all of our patients and making sure their needs are met. In my free time I enjoy spending time with family, my two fur babies Coffee and Eclipse, and photography.
Bookkeeper / Personal Assistant
I have had the pleasure of working for Dr. Geoff for over 14 years. I joined the team as a part time bookkeeper in 2006 and in 2012 was given the opportunity to expand my role to include administrative support to Colleen and personal assistant to Dr. Geoff. In 2017 my duties increased to include support to the clinical team. Learning to help in the clinic has really help me better understand the function of the back office and has been rewarding by allowing me to get to know our patients. When not in the office I enjoy spending time with my husband and my two daughters and I love to travel when the opportunity comes along!
Patient / Treatment Coordinator
I began working with Dr. Hallstead in October 2019 after moving from Florida, where I lived for 16 years. As our patient/treatment coordinator, I meet with our patients to discuss finances, obtain insurance pre-determinations, and schedule treatment appointments. One of my favorite aspects of my job is being able to sit with the patients, one on one, and really get to know them. Everyone has a story, and I enjoy being able to fit those experiences into their dental needs by building a plan with their best interests in mind. When I am not in the office, I enjoy my time with my cats, reading, going out with friends and visiting my sister and her family in Ontario, NY.

Friendly, professional service in a timely fashion.
I have sensitivity due to receding gums and had to have a cavity filled right at the gum line where it is most sensitive. Even though I’ve been coming here forever I was anxious about it. Everything went smoothly and pain-free.
As a first time patient I found everyone from office to dental chair efficient, courteous, and professional. Help with type of payment to what needed to be done with cleaning, my gums and the need to follow up with an oral surgeon. I am very pleased.
We have always received excellent care from Dr. Hallstead and the staff. I appreciate them fitting me in on short notice.
Great staff. Pleasant environment. Calm service. Clear explanations. No harsh upsell. Absolutely minimal discomfort. Easy scheduling. Fabulous results.
I have been going to Dr. Hallstead since I moved to Canandaigua. He and his staff have always provided friendly and outstanding dental care.
