Certified Dental Assistant (level II)

I am now a proud grandmother of five grandchildren. I have had the pleasure of meeting many of you since joining the practice in Feb 2008. I started my career in Health Care in 1983 as Registered Nurses Assistant. Since graduating as a Certified Dental Assistant in 1990 I have enjoyed working in dental offices specializing in general dentistry, oral surgery and orthodontics. In my spare time, I enjoy the Rideau Lakes, which are a special place for me. I find it so relaxing to have lunch at the locks on sunny days. I am very excited to be part of this great team of dental professionals. I look forward to establishing a long and productive relationship of care with each of you.



Hi! Since Terri had decided to semi-retire, I am the newest addition at Rideauview Mall Family Dentistry. I am thrilled to be joining such a wonderful group of professionals. I started my dental career as a certified level 2 dental assistant for the first six years. Then, six years ago, I decided to move to the administrative aspect of dentistry. I am very capable of helping you with your insurance claims and answering any questions you might have. In addition, I love that I can have a positive impact on a patient’s experience at our office. In my spare time, I keep busy with my three children. We enjoy being outdoors and enjoying the sunshine. I am truly blessed to get to know you and your families. I look forward to meeting you all.
