Peter has over 30 years of experience as an orthodontic assistant. Over that time, he has had the great opportunity to positively impact the lives of thousands of local patients.
He is a native of Connecticut, having attended St. Paul Catholic High School in Bristol. He also attended the Morse School of Business in Accounting and Computer Programming. Peter continues to keep his skills sharp with annual continuing education.
Peter loves working with all his patients, but one really left a lasting impression. This was a patient with autism who always needed to know, in great detail, what each procedure entailed before it was performed. He requested Peter for each visit. Over his 2 years of treatment, he became more relaxed…even greeting the clinical staff and doctors with jokes at each visit. When his braces came off his smile was radiant. In addition to giving him a transformed smile, Peter watched him grow into a fine young man.
Peter has been married over 30 years to his wife, Maria, and they have a daughter, Andria, a graduate of the University of Connecticut.
In addition to being a dog lover, Peter enjoys baking, cooking with his wife and daughter, in addition to traveling with his family and friends to new destinations!
Bonnie has over 28 years of experience as an orthodontic assistant and loves impacting the lives of so many throughout Connecticut.
She is a graduate of Briarwood College (formally Lincoln College) in dental assisting. Bonnie is married to Ed and they recently celebrated their 33rd anniversary.
They have 1 daughter, Elizabeth. She loves working with each person who comes to Team Demas Orthodontics because she knows she has time to not only meet but get to know each person. It is why she loves working in orthodontics.
In addition to love of spending time with family and friends, she enjoys practicing yoga. Bonnie also likes to hike and go antique shopping.
Kate has almost 10 years of orthodontic experience. She is a graduate of Porter & Chester dental assisting in 2013. Kate is married to Rick and their blended family has 2 girls and 2 sons. They also have 2 granddaughters! She loves working with people and has always loved teeth. Kate actually liked going to see her dentist. It was her dentist that encouraged her to go to school in this field. (Thank you, Dr. Harmetz!)
One of her fondest memories in orthodontics is when she began working with a patient who didn’t like their smile. She started her braces and was with her for EVERY appointment. The joy the patient had when treatment was done was amazing!
In addition to love of spending time with family, Kate enjoys going to the beach to watch a sunset, and she loves boating and swimming.
But another fun fact is that she is a SOCCER MOM, and has been for the last 11 years. She beams when she shares that her son’s team won the STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS in 2022!
