Meet Our Mavens

Arminco’s three project specialists are involved throughout each client’s journey with the company, and are the initial points of contact. Their industry expertise allows them to work closely with their clients to find the most desirable solutions from budget to build-out.


Congratulations to Mark Lussier, who has never had a cavity! The long-term care and consideration he shows to his teeth is akin to the kinds of relationships he seeks to develop in his work life. He cites the longevity of these relationships as the key to his success and his clients’ successes. Through his network of clients and vendors, he is able to confidently recommend and refer trusted sources for all needs and occasions for which he cannot personally fulfill.

Following his studies in business management, Mark worked with contractors to facilitate the sale, installation, and service of large mechanical equipment on construction sites. His direct involvement has gleaned him expertise in accurately specifying equipment and following up with the contractors to ensure the precision and delivery of the materials needed to complete each job. Although his clients were contractors and now they are users, this experience creating specifications, participating on construction sites and paying fine attention to detail shift seamlessly from one client base to the other.
Above all, Mark’s focus is on continuing to expand his knowledge base, learning from other’s experience and through his own previous mistakes to best serve his clients.
Sasha Hewadpal is proud to have been personally responsible for the build-out of over two hundred and fifty dental offices, over a lengthy period of greater than nine years in the dental industry.
Sasha’s personal skills make him an invaluable asset to Arminco. His superb communication is facilitated by his ability to speak not only English, but fluently communicate with a diverse set of clientele in Spanish and Farsi. His communication is again further expanded by his technical skillset in AutoCad, Revit and Adobe Photoshop; all of which are used by architects, engineers and designers, and can be easily translated quickly and efficiently by the one and only Sasha. He has made a specialized study of architecture and architectural drawings, not only so he can translate them, but also so he can adequately explain and share the intricacies with those clients interested in the minutia.
Although Sasha ultimately takes his job and his clients’ projects seriously, he is known to make the experience pleasurable and entertaining. When asked of his talents, he boasted that he can “rub my tummy while simultaneously patting my head.” He invites you to come learn and laugh with him, as he will surely make the complicated process of developing your practice less stressful.
Melissa Snyder is “the translator in between the dentist and the rest of the world.” Her experience has helped her to understand the language, the value and the importance of dental practices nationwide. Since adolescence, Melissa has been immersed in the dental industry. Following her mother’s footsteps, she began her own career as a dental assistant and later taught dental assisting programs to others entering the field. 
This direct experience in the dental industry provides for a unique insight into the design and construction of new and existing offices by understanding the reason behind successful practices, and also by being a witness to inefficiencies within offices. Melissa asserts that dentistry has provided for her a wonderful life, and is comprised of dedicated professionals whose compassionate focus is on improving people’s lives through healthcare. She views working with Arminco as another facet of this industry, and is happy to be able to switch her focus from the patient to the provider. Throughout her years of experience working in dental offices, Melissa has taken note of the severe time restraints which dentists face. Often, dentists do not have enough time to adequately research all the options available for practice development; Melissa is here to ensure that the providers are being supported the same way they offer support to their patients, where there is a real need for this support.
