I love working in dentistry. The building of relationships with our patients and their families, the happy smiles, and the confidence that our patients gain from improving their health make dentistry a truly wonderful profession! I am also fortunate to be part of such a great practice. I enjoy working with Dr. Ungerleider and Dr. DePatie because they are genuine and sincere, and work hard to make sure our patients feel good.

I am originally from Connecticut, and have worked in dentistry since 1985. When I am away from the practice, I enjoy spending time with my two daughters, Lexi and Madison, and my fun-loving, handsome fiancé, John. I also enjoy cooking, entertaining, swimming, and gardening.

In dentistry, there’s always something new and exciting to smile about, and at Granby Dental Center that’s what we do: make people smile! I enjoy working in the dental field and have been doing so since 2001. Working with Dr. Ungerleider and Dr. DePatie is such a pleasure. They truly are artists, and every single one of our patients looks great after treatment. The entire team here is dedicated to making our patients feel like family. We want you to enjoy your dental treatments, and we always look forward to seeing you at your office visits.

Diane McNally

Dental Hygienist

I have been working in dentistry since 1989, and I still love my job to this very day! I love people, and being a dental hygienist gives me the opportunity to work with so many different people, sharing laughter and smiles, and helping others feel more confident inside and out. I love working with the team at Granby Dental Center. Dr. Ungerleider has many years of experience, and is a great leader in the field of dentistry. I admire his love of learning.

Outside of the practice, I enjoy skiing, golfing, running, being outdoors, and traveling. Most of all, I love spending time with my wonderful family: husband Stephen, son Stephen James, and daughter Jessica.

I have been blessed to work in the dental field since 1978 and with Dr. Ungerleider since 2002. I enjoy working at The Granby Dental Center and being part of the Granby Community. Our doctors are dedicated to providing leading-edge dentistry and they are such caring dentists who always make patients feel welcome. I love meeting new patients and helping them restore their dental health to have beautiful smiles and healthy gums.

Outside of the practice, I enjoy running, hiking, gardening, and reading.  I also love spending time with my husband Tom, and our daughter Rachel.

Lynn Osborn

Dental Hygienist

I love meeting new people, and making a difference in their dental health. I have been working in dentistry since 1976, and with The Granby Dental Center team since 1993. Dr. Ungerleider and Dr. DePatie are wonderful dentists. They work hard to achieve perfect results for each of their patients. I enjoy working with them, and seeing the change in our patients after they’ve undergone treatment for a healthier smile.

I am a true Connecticut native and have lived here my whole life. I have a wonderful family: my husband Chuck, son Ian, and daughter Colleen and her husband. I enjoy spending time with my family. I stay active by playing tennis (I am a member of the USTA), doing spin aerobics, and going to the gym. I am the president of the Hartford Historical Society, and I love volunteering my time at the soup kitchen, with church activities, and with the Special Olympics.

I’ve been working in the dental field since 1966, and my favorite thing about dentistry is still the patient! I have had the opportunity to meet so many interesting people over the years. Each day I still look forward to seeing the happy smiles on my patients’ faces when they visit our practice. Working with The Granby Dental Center and their team is great. Everybody is focused on providing the highest quality of care for our patients and using the newest technology. This is a great place to be!

Outside of the practice, I enjoy spending time with my family — my husband Donald, and my two sons Michael and Donald. I also like traveling, antiquing, cooking, and gardening.

I began my career in dentistry in 1989 and joined Dr. Ungerleider’s practice in 2013. The Granby Dental Center is a very high-tech, modern dental practice.
