Meet Dr. Thomas Dooley
“I knew I wanted to become a dentist since my fifth grade science fair. For my experiment, I placed teeth in beakers of soda. I was astonished by the changes that occurred to the teeth in such a short period of time. What an eye opener!
Today, I’m an enthusiastic dentist striving to provide the best dental care in Mason, OH. I value my relationship with each and every one of my patients and hope we develop lifelong bonds.
I want you to feel happy and confident about your smile and your health.”

Meet Dr. Timothy “Tim” Longo
“I come from a long line of health care providers. My dedication to dentistry began at a young age when I dealt with my own dental issues. I understand how frustrating it can be to be unhappy with your smile. My fascination in the process of fixing my teeth and happiness with the results has led to a professional life devoted to bringing patients the same joy and comfort in their smiles.
My goal is to make the dental experience as comfortable as possible. I strive to perform top of the line treatment for patients when they are in our office, and provide all knowledge needed to maintain oral health at home. I care about my patients, and value the opportunity to make a relationship with each of them.
You deserve to be confident about your teeth, and I am here to make sure of that.”

Front Desk Team
I joined the Cedar Village Dentistry team in July of 2020 with previous experience as an office manager for 3 years prior. I have a passion for the dental field and bringing smiles to our patients’ faces. I was born in Cincinnati and raised in Lebanon and graduated from Lebanon High School in 2013. I attended Sinclair for 2 years and have an Associate’s Degree in Liberal Arts. I currently live in Mason, Ohio with my husband and fur babies while in the process of building my dream home. In my free time, I am with my family. I love Starbucks and shopping.
Maryssa joined Cedar Village Dentistry in November 2020. She just graduated from the University of Cincinnati with her degree in Psychology.
She went to Roger Bacon High School where she met her husband. They now have a 2 year old son named Elijah. For fun Maryssa likes to hang out with her family, watch sports, and try new restaurants!
Christi just recently joined Cedar Village Dentistry in November 2020. She relocated to Mason OH from Huntington WV where she received her Bachelor’s Degree from Marshall University and spent many years in Sales as a Realtor and Broker and in Management of a medical office.
She is very proud of her 3 children. Her 14 year old twins attend Mason Middle School and her oldest son is attending his third year of Medical School at WVU.
For leisure she enjoys spending time outdoors bike riding, boating, and camping with her family.
She looks forward to meeting new people and making them feel right at home!
Amy joined the Cedar Village Dentistry Team in 2016, and shares with our patients her 13 years of experience. Throughout her career she has completed many specialized training and certifications including classes in ACLS (Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support), which teaches skills needed to help patients and people in emergency situations. She also maintains a CPR certification and X-ray license.
After passing the CDA exam for dental assistants, Amy followed up with the Nitrous Oxide Sedation Monitoring and Coronal Polishing certifications. So far her most gratifying acquirement is being an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant, which allows her to work one on one with patients needing composite restorations.
Amy has been a Mason resident for 13 years. She and her family take full advantage of everything this great area has to offer including the schools and community center.
Nikki joined our team in January 2019, and shares with our patients her 6 years of experience. Having become an Ohio certified dental assistant, she now anticipates attending the Sinclair EFDA program in spring 2020. Upon completion she would then work more closely with those patients needing composite restorations. She also maintains her CPR certification and X-ray license.
During her time as an assistant, Nikki has gained experience in nearly every aspect of dentistry. And with that our patients and Dr. Dooley benefit from her assistance with crowns, endodontic therapy, extractions, implants, orthodontics, dentures, whitening, and sedation dentistry.
As a child, Nikki herself spent a lot of time in the dental chair. And like many, her frequent visits created a dental fear that carried into adult life. However, she decided to use those personal experiences and anxieties as a way to help others, thus leading her into the dental field. Cedar Village Dentistry is proud to have Nikki provide a comfortable environment for our patients through her professionalism, humor, and natural chair-side manner.
Kari attended Sinclair College and graduated in 2015 with an Associates of Applied Science, Dental Hygiene. She comes to us with four years of clinical experience and is certified in Local Anesthesia and Nitrous Oxide administration.
She strives to motivate her patients to optimal oral health through individualized oral hygiene instruction and patient education.
Kari lives an active lifestyle and is currently learning the practice of Yoga. She loves being outdoors whether it’s paddle-boarding, snowboarding or hiking with her Goldendoodle, Dax.
Shelby is a graduate of Sinclair Community College with an Associates degree of Applied Science, Dental Hygiene. Her passion is helping her patients reach oral health excellence through patient education and continuous learning to provide the newest and innovative information to Cedar Village Dentistry.
In her free time, Shelby has found a love for creating blankets and hats for her kids and family through crochet which she taught herself. She looks forward to the summer and being outdoors, whether it’s to go fishing or grilling out with her family.
Hayley comes to the Cedar Village Dentistry team with 16 years of dental experience and she loves being a dental professional. There is always something new to learn in dentistry, classes to attend and techniques to perfect. Having started as a dental assistant she learned the procedures performed by the Dentist. Hayley can talk patients through each step of a dental procedure, and give them reassurance and words of compassion to encourage comfort and calmness in the dental chair.
Hayley was a dental assistant for a number of years, and wanted to be more involved with patient care, so she went to dental hygiene school at Sinclair Community College and received her Associates degree in Applied Science. A few years later, she continued her education and returned to Sinclair to get her certification as an EFDA which allows her to also place composite restorations. Whether she meets a patient in the hygiene room or the Doctor’s treatment room she is prepared to give them the best care possible.
Hayley was raised in a small rural town and has only been in the Mason area for a short time. People love her for her happy go lucky personality and the energy she brings. She enjoys being outdoors, going on traveling adventures and spending time with family and friends.
