We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice. We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
I like making people feel good and helping them learn we really care about them as a person. It’s wonderful to see their smiles while they’re here! I work with patients from clinical diagnosis through scheduling visits and completing the treatment. I want patients to always be satisfied with their care and to achieve the best results.
I’ve been married to a great man for almost 30 years. I have two sons, two dogs, and a cat, as well as great friends and family. When not working, I enjoy gardening and cooking.
I enjoy spending time to build relationships with people. It’s rewarding to see the progress each person makes in improving their oral hygiene and learning to care for their smile. Working closely with a patient, I take X-rays, scale and polish their teeth, and provide a lot of education. I want patients to understand why it’s important to care for their mouth and how to do it.
When I’m not working, I spend time with my family. I’m married, a mother of five, and grandmother to a young grandson. I also have a dog and cat. I love nature, hiking, and animals, and I am a breast cancer survivor!
I love getting to know each patient on a one-to-one basis. As I typically see a patient at least twice a year, we have time to talk and learn about the other’s life. I believe the most important part of my work is encouraging and educating each patient in how to improve and maintain their oral health. I love seeing a clean and bright smile at a recare visit!
When not working, I enjoy time with my young Shepadoodle, Raven. We love to jog, visit the dog park, and stay active. In the summer I like to rollerblade and I snowboard in the winter.
My favourite part of the day is helping people feel comfortable coming to see us. I know some people are nervous about seeing the dentist and want them to know our doctors and hygienists are gentle and compassionate. I work both at reception and in our clinic area, supporting the patients and assisting the dentists. I also make whitening trays and sportsguards.
During my free time, I’m usually with my wonderful husband and three beautiful boys. We love going to splash pads and parks during the summer, taking road trips and baking. If not with my family, I enjoy running and plan on completing my second half-marathon in Spring 2017.
I enjoy the personal interaction with patients. It’s fulfilling to know I’ve helped someone through their visit and that their oral health is improved as a result of our work. I perform a range of tasks, balancing clinical and administrative roles, so that the appointment runs smoothly. This allows the doctor to focus on each patient’s needs and comfort. We have a wonderful team here, and they feel like a second family. That closeness extends to the care we offer our patients.
I enjoy meeting and getting to know people while helping them feel comfortable during visits. I know seeing the dentist can sometimes be stressful, but here everything is gentle and supportive! I greet patients, seat them, and prepare them to see the doctor. Then, sitting chairside, I assist the doctor while making sure our patient is relaxed and aware of what we’re doing.
Outside of work, my favorite times are spent with my family and friends. I also like traveling, enjoying the outdoors, and reading.
