Dr. Emily Tuthill grew up in rural central Maine, and studied conservation biology at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, and then optometry at the Pennsylvania College of Optometry in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania.
Her optometrist training included rotations in pediatrics, low-vision rehabilitation, glaucoma services and emergency eye care, offering her an enormous amount of experience. Prior to joining Dr. Dexter's team, Dr. Tuthill worked with an ophthalmology practice outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
When not working, Dr. Tuthill likes to spend time with her husband and children at their home in Stoddard, New Hampshire, skiing, hiking, biking, and playing with their two chocolate Miniature Pinchers, Zoe and Zeus.
Dr. Tuthill and her husband are excited to be back in New England and look forward to watching their son and daughter grow up here.
Dr. Tatyana Shalapyonok, OD is the newest addition to Dr. Dexter's Vision Center in Keene and joined the practice in 2011.
After studying Chemistry at the University of Massachusetts she decided that her main interest was health and that she wanted to work directly with people. She graduated from the New England College of Optometry in Boston and subsequently completed a Residency program specializing in Ocular Disease and Geriatrics at the Veterans Hospital in Jamaica Plain, MA. She emphasizes the importance of health and nutrition with all of her patients and enjoys a very active lifestyle herself.
She is an avid hiker and world traveler. Moving to Keene has provided a wonderful opportunity for her to enjoy nature and the great outdoors on a regular basis. On her days off she can be spotted running through Keene, hiking in the White Mountains, rock climbing, hang gliding, and white water rafting. Her next adventure includes a trek to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa as well as a wild life safari.
