Team Leader/Dental Assistant
I have been involved in dentistry for over 20 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!
Importance of Education
I have been enjoying working as a Level 2 Dental Assistant since 2001, graduating from South Western Medix College in London. I enjoy the variety of tasks my position entails, working both with the hygienists, and chairside with both dentists. I am an active member of the Ontario Dental Assistants Association (ODAA), and maintain my certification with continuing education. I am confident that our team will do their very best to assist all patients with enhancing and maintaining optimal dental health.
Outside of work, I enjoy travelling and camping with my husband Mike, my daughter, Peyton, and son, Lachlan.
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.
