Meet Dr. Salamon

Dr. Ryan Salamon is a graduate of the University of New England College of Dental Medicine in Portland, Maine.  Although originally from Wisconsin, him and his wife have come to love everything Maine has to offer over the past 6 years, and decided to make it their permanent home.

As a child, Dr. Salamon experienced his own dental trauma due to a sports injury.  He understands that going to the dentist can be an anxiety-ridden experience.  It is his first priority to get his patients free of pain in a comfortable, family-friendly setting.

Prior to attending dental school, Dr. Salamon served his country for four years as an enlisted active duty Marine, including one deployment to Afghanistan with 2nd Tank Battalion.

Dr. Salamon is married to his wife, Rachael who is a dental hygienist.  Together, they are joined by their joined by their daughter, Evelyn, and their two sons, Jacob and Andrew.


Hello, my name is Doris Newbury. I am the Patient Care Coordinator at Lakeside Dental. I have been working here for almost two years. I have lived in Maine for nearly 40 years. I have five beautiful children, and six wonderful grandkids.

I love working at Lakeside Dental because the environment is so welcoming and every staff member is so caring. We are just one big family!


Hi I’m Michelle. I have had the pleasure of being a part of this dental office for 10 years. While my main focus as Dr. Salamon’s assistant is making sure patients are comfortable and understand the treatment they are receiving; I can also be found beebopping in the dental lab fabricating mouthguards and custom trays.

When not at the practice, I can be found cheering on my kiddos on either a softball field, the pitch, or basketball court. If I’m not there I am most likely coordinating the next dog transport and foster families for Rescue Charlie’s Friends dog rescue.

Lakeside is my 2nd family. We have the best patients, the most fun, and of course, top notch dental care. Having a family at work makes me love coming in everyday. It’s not work if you love what you do!


Hi, my name is Katy and I am a Dental Hygienist I graduated from UMA-Bangor in May 2019 and started working at Lakeside Dental immediately. I love dogs, especially my German Shepherd Ellie.

My favorite part about working at Lakeside Dental is working with an amazing staff, a welcoming atmosphere and being able to help patients maintain a healthy smile.


Hi, my name is Paxton. I recently graduated from the University of New England Dental Hygiene program in May of 2019. I have been working at Lakeside Dental since the middle of June. I have lived in Maine almost my entire life, and attended Monmouth Academy.

I always knew I wanted to be a dental hygieniest because I always had such a positive experience as a kid. My favorite part of Lakeside Dental is the low-pressure, welcoming environment radiated by the entire staff.
