Samantha J. Billings was born April 30, 1976 and is a Bucksport, Maine native. After graduating Bucksport High School she was accepted into the Dental Hygiene Program at the University of Maine, Orono. Samantha graduated hygiene school Cum Laude with an Associate’s Degree in Dental Hygiene in May of 1997. She immediately began working as a full-time hygienist for a practice in Bar Harbor, ME. After relocating in 2001, due to her husband’s work, she took full-time employment as a dental hygienist in Lincoln, then in Greenville, ME.
In 2001 she began her prerequisite schooling for dental school at the University of Maine, Orono, by being accepted into the Microbiology program. During her time at the University she continued working part-time and summers as a dental hygienist. In 2003 Samantha was offered a chance to attend Dalhousie University in their Dental Program. Only two spots were reserved for Maine residents and due to exceptional studies and her background in hygiene, she was allowed to attend the Dental Program without completing and graduating the Microbiology program at the University of Maine.
Samantha accepted Dalhousie University's offer and began Dental classes in September of 2004. With her husband still working and living back home in Maine, she completed two and-a-half years of school before her husband, Mike, relocated with Samantha in Halifax. During her remaining time at Dalhousie, Samantha gave birth to two beautiful daughters, graduated Dalhousie as a Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.), and accepted a full-time dentist job in her home town of Bucksport, Maine.
Currently Samantha, Mike, and their two daughters live in Holden, Maine where the girls attend elementary school. Samantha is affiliated with the American Dental Association and the Maine Dental Association. She donates her free time to the elementary school, volunteering in her daughter’s classrooms and participating in the Parent Volunteer Association.
