Meet the Team

The Blue Hen Dental team members are rock stars!

Our clinical team is warm and attentive to our patients, helping each feel at ease when they are in the chair. And our front desk team does an awesome job of scheduling patients on a timely basis: making sure everyone understands their treatment and financial responsibilities, and accommodating personal situations.

All of our team members work incredibly hard to ensure that each person has a wonderful experience, from the moment they call in to the time they walk out with a brighter, healthier smile.

I am so thankful to work with this wonderful group of talented, compassionate people!

Ashleigh – Patient Treatment Coordinator

I am the first and last person our patients see in our office! I welcome them with a smile, check them in, and schedule any needed treatment. I enjoy seeing people transform and build their confidence throughout treatment. There is no greater feeling than completing treatment and seeing a beautiful smile!

I am from the great state of Texas. My husband serves in the United States Air Force and that is what brought me to the Diamond State. We enjoy spending time outdoors, trying new restaurants, and watching sports. I also like coffee a latte!


Brianna – Dental Assistant

I graduated from the dental assisting program at Delcastle Technical High School in 2016 and joined Blue Hen Dental the next year. At the office, I enjoy meeting new people and helping them improve their smiles. Whether I am assisting Dr. Baqi during a procedure or going over images and X-rays with patients, I feel like I’ve made a difference in a person’s life and helped them have a positive dental experience.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my son Javier, traveling, and painting. I also enjoy listening to music and keeping up with the latest tracks.


Emily – Office Manager

I do just about anything you can think of that helps the office run smoothly. Dr. Baqi provides excellent care, and our patients have an amazing experience! I have a great time here watching Dr. Baqi and our team transform our patients’ smiles and giving them their confidence again. We’re an amazing team, really like a family, and have so much fun every day!

At home, I have two beautiful daughters, a crazy dog, and a wonderfully supportive husband! When I’m not at work, I enjoy crafting, interior decorating, and planning projects for the house we are building!


Karri – Clinical Supervisor

I went to Paul M. Hodgson Vocational Technical High School, graduated in 2015, and have been a dental assistant since. As our clinical supervisor, I train and mentor our clinical staff in order to hone their skills and to maintain a high level of ethical and professional standards. My favorite part of my job is being able to give patients their confidence back, and seeing how much we can make a difference. I love being able to make a high-anxiety patient feel comfortable and have them trust us, because it’s never an easy step after a bad experience. We want nothing but the best for our patients, and treat them that way!

My favorite times are in spring and summer, where we have long, warm days. I have a Jeep that I love taking the doors off of and going for a drive at the beach.


Nicole – Dental Hygienist

I attended Delaware Technical Community College (Wilmington) in the dental hygiene program, where I graduated in 2017. Having joined the Blue Hen Dental team the next year, I work one on one with patients as a guide through their oral health journey. I try to make it as comfortable and informative as possible, so they look forward to coming back! It’s also a lot of fun to work with the kids!

I have been with my significant other since we were 16 and we have a yellow Labrador Retriever named Rado. In my spare time, I love to craft, read, and spend time with family and friends.


Kate – Patient Treatment Coordinator

I am the first person patients’ interact with when they arrive and the last person they see when they leave. I greet everyone with a warm smile and bid farewell with more smiles! I coordinate insurance benefits and ensure treatment plans are ready for the day, too. As a main point of contact, I’m always ready to answer questions and am happy to help! With my bachelor’s degree in business management, I bring many skills to our office and love using them to help our patients. We have an amazing fun and laid-back environment where we do great dentistry, all thanks to Dr. Baqi and this team!

I was born and raised in a small town in New Hampshire and played tennis at Goucher College for four years. In my free time, I love cooking, photography, and exploring the outdoors!


Farhad – General Manager

As our GM, I oversee the operations of all the branches by managing staff, overseeing the budget, employing marketing strategies, and ensuring quality service is delivered to all of our patients. I also work very closely with Dr. Baqi to create treatment plans that work both clinically and financially for the patient. I love seeing our patients and employees build great relationships with each other. It feels great knowing that everyone trusts us to take care of their families dental needs!

I am a Smyrna High School graduate who went on to the University of Delaware to study business. I am a current member of the University of Delaware’s Horn Alumni Council, where I can help make decisions to improve the quality of the program for current and past students. I am also an avid hiker and have hiked most of Delaware’s state parks!
