Gisele had been a dental hygienist for Dr DeMello’s now retired associate, Dr. James A. Ferioli since 1974 and has worked with Dr. DeMello for twenty six years since he first started in dentistry. She also worked part-time for several area dentists. She graduated from Bristol Community College and was a member of Sigma Phi Beta, an honor society for dental hygienists.
Gisele is now working part-time for Dr. DeMello since Dr. Ferioli’s retirement in April 2007. What has always amazed her about Dr. DeMello is his enthusiasm for dentistry. Many dentists lose that enthusiasm as the years go by but Dr. DeMello remains excited about dentistry and has stayed abreast of the newest technologies and has implemented them in his practice. He is also very supportive of patient education and supplies his hygienist with the latest materials to treat and educate his patients.
Gisele has been married for thirty years and has three children, two son-in-laws, and two grandchildren, who are the light of her life. She enjoys reading , tandem biking with her husband, boating and fishing , camping, exercising at the gym, and loves animals. She is also an avid Pawsox, Red Sox, and Patriots fan.
She has been involved in her community, especially in the school system when her children were attending, and is an active participant in her church.
