Team Leader / Dental Assistant
I have been involved in dentistry for over 25 years, graduating from St. Clair College in Windsor in 1991 as a Certified Dental Assistant. Shortly after graduating, I was hired as a full-time receptionist, with some assisting chairside when needed. Within a year or so, I continued on to the University of Western Ontario, where I completed the Level 2 Assistant Certification program.
Keeping Things Lively
In December 1994, my husband and I had our first daughter, Rebecca, and in 1996 my second daughter, Madeline, was born. I returned to work on a full-time basis working chairside. Along with seeing patients, I enjoy promoting our office, advertising/marketing, photography, decorating, and keeping it lively! Our team has been blessed with several continuing education experiences over the years. I believe our office provides and strives for excellence on a daily basis, and the people I work with are like extended family.
Outside of the office, I enjoy all sports, travel, continuing education, and wine!
I have been enjoying my career as a Dental Assistant since 1998, graduating from St. Clair College in Windsor. Over the years I have welcomed a variety of changes within my field exploring multiple roles from Hygiene Coordinator, reception and also chair side assisting, always helping to ensure the patient’s comfort.
I am an active member of the ODA and maintain my certification yearly through continuing education. I am confident that we as a team will all do our very best in helping our patients maintain optimal health!
Outside of work, my husband Aaron and I keep busy raising our two daughters Ryland and Graye, we enjoy sports, travel and our family.
Over the past 20 years, I have experienced different jobs within the dental field. I originally graduated from Career Canada in Hamilton as a Dental Assistant, after studying in the nursing field. I then continued my education at Western University, completing the Level 2 Dental Assistant program, along with comprehensive training in Orthodontics.
Right at Home
In May 2014, I joined the team at Dr. Karen Davis and Dr. John Milne Dentistry and immediately felt at home. Here, I enjoy working chairside with both Dr. Karen and Dr. John, assisting the hygienists with treatment care and keeping our day running smoothly … you might even catch me at the front desk helping Ann out too!
Outside the office, my husband Terry and I have 4 children that keep us busy and entertained. We enjoy boating, travel and entertaining family and friends.
In June 2010 I graduated from Medix College in London, Ontario as a Level 2 Dental Assistant. Over the past few years I have had the opportunity of learning different aspects in dentistry, all of which I feel are vital to provide the best care possible for our patients.
I currently work chairside assisting both Dr. Davis and Dr. Milne, with knowledge also in Treatment Coordinating and previously managing a local office.
A few years ago I met and worked with Dr. Davis, and am happy to have the opportunity to reconnect and join her team in May 2019!
Outside of work, my husband Dean and I keep busy with our three children Nyah, Neveah and Noah. I enjoy watching and travelling with each of their sports, working out and spending time with my family.
