DMD, Functional Orthodontist

Dentofacial Orthopedics
early intervention orthodontics

Dr. Samantha Bogle, DMD, MDS, absolutely loves creating beautiful smiles for her patients. Her favorite part is seeing the confidence her patients gain as their smiles transform. Dr. Bogle has wanted to become an orthodontist since the age of 10 after her own positive experience with her childhood orthodontist. Orthodontics integrates her love of art and science. She is so excited to be able to use her knowledge of science and biomechanics and her finesse and attention to detail in the creation of her own art — a beautiful smile!

Born and raised in New Jersey, she began her journey to become an Orthodontist at Northeastern University, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude with honors with a Bachelor of Science in Biology Degree. After college, Dr. Bogle returned home to New Jersey where she was accepted to Rutgers School of Dental Medicine, where she earned her Doctorate of Dental Medicine, graduating 1st in her class. While attending Rutgers, Dr. Bogle was elected treasurer of her class and started a local chapter of the American Association of Women Dentists. Immediately following dental school, Dr. Bogle continued her dental training in a three-year residency at the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine Department of Orthodontics, where she earned her specialty degree in the field of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics and her Masters in Dental Science degree.

Dr. Bogle specializes in orthodontics with a specific emphasis on early treatment in children to improve facial growth and development. She believes focusing on the airway, proper breathing and early structural intervention can reduce the need for orthodontic treatment later in life. Prevention is key. She treats with low bracket profile, customized Insignia and ceramic braces as well as Invisalign in teens and adults.

She loves spending time outdoors. Her favorite time of year is Summer when she spends her time at the beach, swimming, and boating. She loves travel and experiencing other cultures. She also enjoys exercising, cooking, and a great cup of coffee.

Dental Hygienists

Kim Hudson

dental hygienist

Kim got into the dental field when she was 17 years old after seeing an ad in the paper for Dental Assistant School and could see herself as a caretaker. After years of doing dental assisting, she found a love for oral surgery and learning more about medicine. To expand her craft, she decided to go to hygiene school in hopes of becoming a clinician that helps and teaches.

Groton Wellness has changed her life so much and she feels lucky to be part of a community of like-minded people. Being integrated with functional medicine has been a huge eye opener to her and has made her want to learn more to provide the best care possible. Through Groton Wellness, she has received her certification in Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy which has helped her work with people to achieve better sleep, breathing, swallowing, and overall become a healthier person.

Outside of work, she takes care of her own health and has used her education to experiment in the kitchen to see how food can help her body function better. She uses that same fuel to keep her body moving outdoors. Kim is passionate about mountain climbing and mountaineering. She lives for rocks, ice, and snow and does whatever she can to be out in the wilderness–getting stronger, and pushing her limits. She has great gratitude for Groton Wellness for her health and education and is excited to continue providing with passion.

Therapeutic Spa

Stephanie Sullivan

Massage Therapist

Stephanie Sullivan has been a Licensed Esthetician for 15 years. Her first job in the industry was at a Holistic Clinic in Brookline Massachusetts, where she focused mostly on detoxifying body treatments. It was there that clients would ask her repetitively if she was also a massage therapist due to her touch and application of body products. That always stayed with her and when she had the opportunity to return to school, she decided to become a licensed Massage Therapist as well. She knew that was her passion the first day she started school. Now a licensed Massage Therapist for over 10 years, she has taken many trainings to maximize her clients results. She worked for Equinox Fitness in Boston, Ma for 8 years and during that time she became trained in orthopedic massage.

Stephanie really enjoys customizing each client’s needs based on what the body is telling her. Her goal is to get the body to move more fluidly after each session but she doesn’t believe is the no pain no gain approach. Her goal is to give each individual a therapeutic approach while still allowing the client and the clients body to reach ultimate relaxation.

Fun Fact: Stephanie is licensed as an Esthetician in both MA and NH and also has her Esthetic Instructor License in NH. She is always learning and loves incorporating everything she learns into every session!

Wellness Cafe

Arwyn Lennon

Wellness Chef

Chef Arwyn has worked in the food service industry for the past 31 years, 22 of which were as a chef. Despite her family’s Irish heritage, she developed her culinary talents in the North End of Boston, cooking for a small, family-owned, Italian restaurant. With the help of a restaurateur friend, Arwyn helped spearhead a movement in the corporate café world in 1985 to bring quality, made-from-scratch food to replace the “heat and eat” frozen food that was the staple at the time. She was then thrown into the specialty-diet field since she had a knack for giving particular customers exactly what they wanted while making it taste incredible.

Next, it was off to the bright lights of worldwide, private-airline catering. This demanding 24-7 job required someone with multiple talents, attention to detail and the ability to survive on a minimal amount of sleep. It was here that she designed and prepared menus for some very famous clients; To drop a few names ~ President George W. Bush, Air Force One Republican Press Core, John Kerry and on his wife’s plane, Fleetwood Mac, Rod Stewart, a few princes and a shah or two. This was a fun and exciting job but the hectic hours left little time for anything else. During her tenure in private airline catering, Arwyn sought out the corporate dining field because they could offer the best of both worlds; high-end catering and a flexible schedule.

Chef Arwyn assisted in pushing more sustainable and allergy-sensitive programs into Eurest and Sodexo over the next few years. She put together a presentation “So You Want to Save the Planet?” that helped several café accounts with a compost program, greener service-ware and waste management. Recently, Arwyn was given free rein to design a university wellness program at Franklin Pierce University. She introduced a plethora of healthy foods and practices that will serve as a model for best practices as they go forward.

Her love of healthy dining, sustainable practices, and the fact that food is truly medicine are the ideals that brought Arwyn to Groton Wellness. Having the opportunity to work with sensitive diets, farm-to-table, clean food, and cutting edge philosophies on how ingredients affect our bodies is a lifelong dream of Arwyn’s. Chef Arwyn is so very proud to work for such a noble cause as the betterment of one’s health and protection of the earth’s resources. She is grateful for the opportunity to serve you at Groton Wellness.
