Cheryl Tocco


Cheryl Tocco

I have been in the dental field for over 30 years. I was actually a patient in the first office I worked in. I had thought about going to dental school, but I was talked into getting on the job training as a dental receptionist. I love what I do and have grown with every office I have worked in. I get the greatest pleasure meeting the patients and getting to know them and their families through listening to their stories.

Over the years, I have built a strong rapport with our patients and I am committed to have each and every patient enjoy their visit to our office and assist them with all scheduling, payments, and insurance needs. I look forward to continuing my career with a local dentist and our awesome team. I take pride in being the face and the voice of our practice and I am looking forward to retire someday here.

When I am not working, I enjoy taking long walks with our dog Maya and spending time with my daughter Melissa and my son Scott, my four sisters and all my nieces and nephews.

Jilisa C

Jilisa graduated from Lincoln Tech in 2015. She makes it her personal mission every day to ensure every patient is comfortable in the dental chair and prepared for procedures. She also sterilizes dental instruments, prepares work areas for patient treatment and assist Dr. Tufa during procedures, takes and processes X-rays, and assists our hygienists whenever possible. She enjoys getting to know patients and forming trusting relationships with them.

Outside of the office, she likes spending time with her daughter Laila, watch movies, organize her house, go to the gym and travel to see family members.

Judith Berlied

Judi is the longest tenured employee in the Acton Dental building where she worked since 1985 with two dentists before transitioning with Dr. Tufa. Suffice to say – everyone knows Judi. She is a certified dental assistant with great attention to detail and extensive experience in all aspects of dental assisting work. She has great sense of humor, great rapport with the patients and strives to give each patient the best experience possible.

In her free time, Judi enjoys hiking, kayaking, camping, biking, gardening and relaxing with her friends.



Jilisa and Cheryl where awesome!! I have been neglecting my dental appointments and they made me feel at home. The technology used was up to date and really helped me understand my dental health at a whole new level . Dr Tufa was fantastic...she squeezed me in, explained my issues and put me at ease..


Friendly and very good service by Cheryl and the whole staff at Acton Smile Hub. You walk out with a smile on your face.



Like the Smile Hub for its professional service all around from scheduling payment etc. and its dentist work. It’s a modern way of doing dentistry. Dr Tufa is very knowledgeable and Aleta Smith for cleaning is just awesome. And the staff is always friendly too. I have known Cheryl there now for years. It’s like seeing family. Love this place. Can only recommend.


Aleta is a phenomenal hygienist. She makes a trip to the dentist enjoyable. I always appreciate Dr.Tufa’s expertise and wonderful patient support. Cheryl is always so kind and helpful at the front desk!
