Dental Team – North Attleboro, MA
Meet a Team
You Can Trust
A dental team shouldn’t just do the bare minimum to get your appointment over faster. Our Attleboro Dental Group team members all enjoy forming lasting, trust-based relationships with our patients and showing them how dental care can be convenient, comfortable, and even enjoyable. We can’t wait to meet you and your family in person, but before you call, you can get to know our team better ahead of time by checking out their brief biographies below.
Dr. William Herr
To Dr. Herr, dentistry is all about forming relationships with patients. Before entering dental school, Dr. Herr had an opportunity to shadow other dentists while he was still earning his undergraduate education. It was in his time there that he realized how dentists could leave a positive impact on people as well as that person’s entire family. Seeing that relationship unfold while also being able to change that person’s life is what really makes all the hard work worth it.
Dr. Andrew Luccio
Dr. Luccio had always been drawn to healthcare, but dentistry stood out to him because of how closely he’d get to be working with his patients. He notes that dentists have a very unique role when it comes to the doctor-patient relationship. These relationships can easily last a lifetime, and the more he learned how dental disease and gum disease represented two of the most common diseases in America, the more he realized how important teeth really are. He quickly realized how a career in dentistry would allow him to make a pretty incredible impact on his community. For these reasons, he feels it’s an honor every day to walk through the doors of this dental office and provide patients the care they need.
Dr. Poya jafari
Originally from Auburn, MA, Dr. Jafari always knew that he loved biology, but wasn’t sure where he would take his passion for science as a career. At a young age, he always helped his father around the house and he knew he enjoyed working with his hands. By the time he was in high school, Dr. Jafari had the opportunity to shadow dentists while visiting Iran with his family. He realized that dentistry provided the perfect combination of engineering and biology. Being able to talk to patients directly and experience this face-to-face dynamic was what truly sealed the deal for Dr. Jafari’s career in dentistry.
Dr. Nancy Mo
After seeing first-hand the positive effects of a smile transformation, Dr. Mo chose to dedicate her life to helping others achieve healthy, happy smiles. She ultimately decided to pursue the BS/DDS program at the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education in New York City before continuing her education at the Columbia University College of Dental Medicine. Today, she has undergone advanced training in everything from surgical therapies and endodontics to implant placement. We are thrilled to have her on our team, and she looks forward to making your dream smile a reality!
Dr. Alyssa Neelley
When Dr. Neelley realized she could positively impact the health and confidence of others through dentistry, her mind was made up! All these years later, she is just as passionate about combining art and science to help her friends and neighbors achieve fully functional and gorgeous smiles. If you’d like to learn more about her before your next appointment, then keep reading!
Dr. Justin Cifuni
Dr. Justin Cifuni is a board-certified periodontist who specializes in dental implants surgery, hard and soft tissue regeneration, and multiple laser therapies. His advanced skills allow us to provide dental implant planning, placement, and restoration in-house so patients can receive a wider variety of treatments in one place while still working with our trusted team. We are proud to bring his unique expertise to our patients as opposed to making them visit a different practice for these services. To learn a little more about Dr. Cifuni and his background, read on below.
Dr. Negar Harraji
As an endodontist, Dr. Harraji specializes in performing complex root canals and fixing problems involving the dental pulp. Her approach when providing care embodies her international upbringing, a very personal and empathetic touch, and the pragmatism and focus of her engineering background (more on this below). She loves the high level of skill and focus required and finds it very rewarding to help her patients get out of pain while promoting their oral health at the same time. She looks forward to showing people that there is no reason to fear root canals anymore!
Alicia is a member of our front office team, and her mission is to help our patients feel welcome from the moment they give us a call or step through our doors. Originally from Pawtucket, she is a huge sports enthusiast (both playing and watching) and loves animals — she considers her dog and cat to be her kids!
Ensuring that patients have access to dental care that is both financially flexible and comfortable is the chief concern of our financial coordinator. Jessica is the first to tell you that these interactions and relationships with patients are what she enjoys most about her job. Aside from financial arrangements, she is also tasked with a number of responsibilities that ensure the smooth and timely operation of the dental office!
Jessica calls her three children the center of her universe. It’s a very busy universe, particularly with the various sports-related activities each is involved in. Some interests and hobbies of Jessica’s include spending time at the beach, doing yoga, and biking.

Heather is yet another valued member of our hygiene team. With over 25 years of experience, patients of Attleboro Dental Group take comfort in knowing that they are seeing a clinician that is both highly experienced and educated.

The experienced clinical team at Attleboro Dental Group is lucky to have Carolyn as one of our hygienists, as she brings 30+ years of experience to the role. She is able to provide unmatched care to each patient she sees, and it is her genuine care for their wellbeing that keeps them coming back. Carolyn would be the first to tell you that the relationships she has built with patients over the years are what she values most.
Outside of the dental office, Carolyn loves to spend time with her family. She is married to her husband Mike and has a daughter named Jillian, as well as two stepchildren named Hannah and William. Her children certainly keep her busy, and one of the many hats she wears is that of “Softball Mom.”
Shannon is a member of our highly experienced dental hygiene team, and our patients are certainly better off for it. Her high regard for creating a calm, relaxing environment ensures that even patients with a history of dental anxiety are not at all threatened when visiting the dental office.
Shannon enjoys a number of activities outside of work, including cross-stitching, reading, and spending time with friends and family. While Shannon’s husband Nick (and their two cats) would say that she has a soft side, be warned – she has earned her 3rd-degree black belt in Kenpo Karate!
Courtney has been a dental hygienist since 2012, and it is of the utmost importance to her that her patients feel calm and comfortable in her chair. She achieves this by having a gentle hand and a positive attitude during hygiene procedures, as well as making sure all her patients leave feeling well-informed about their oral health.
Courtney graduated from Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and is also licensed in local anesthesia. She is CPR/AED certified and enjoys taking continuing education regarding all facets of dentistry on a regular basis. In her spare time, she enjoys hanging out with her partner, painting, and baking.
Experience and a commitment to advanced training are two of the core principles that our team is built upon. Virgen is yet another team member that we are happy to say embodies both.

Aside from her superb dental assisting skills, her positive, upbeat demeanor is contagious. At your next visit, you can count on seeing her smile and leaving with one of your own!
When Virgen is out of the dental office, you will find her spending time with friends and family and being a proud mother!
