My goal is help people improve and maintain optimal oral health. I provide thorough and gentle cleanings and alert patients and the doctors to signs of oral lesions, tooth decay, or gum disease. My focus is always on educating and encouraging patients to develop great home oral hygiene routines.
When not working, carpooling, or managing my family’s hectic schedule, I enjoy time with my three busy teenage daughters. They bring forward interesting thoughts and ideas, often encouraging me to look at things differently. When schedules align, we escape to our favorite Mexican resort or our extended family gathering place in Windermere, BC.
I work one-to-one with patients, helping them improve their oral and overall health. While assessing their dental health and gently cleaning their teeth, I teach people why it’s important to practice good home oral hygiene. I want people to have lifetimes of healthy, happy smiles!
I enjoy travelling, gardening and my ragdoll cats. Everyone knows me as the Maritimer.
My duties as a dental assistant are comprehensive and varied in our office. I perform many tasks requiring both interpersonal and technical skills. I enjoy working directly, yet independantly with the dentist to provide a high level of dental treatment for our patients in a caring and compassionate enviroment.
My husband Doug and I enjoy volunteering with PALS at the Calgary Airport. I also like road cycling and international travel.
I’ve been practicing dentistry for more than 40 years; during that time I have always made each patient’s wellbeing the priority. Whether that means referring a person to a specialist for a procedure or encouraging them to seek a second opinion, it’s about what’s in their best interests, not ours. It’s essential patients know we want them to be comfortable, fully informed, and excited to part of caring for their oral health.
Our doctors and staff respect your unique dental needs and desires. We’ll thoroughly explain all treatment options, directly answer your questions, and make sure you have all the information you need to decide on care. We provide the guidance but you make the decisions: this is your smile, after all!
