Patricia

Office Manager/Financial Coordinator

I love interacting with our wonderful patients and their families. It’s fun to see their smiles coming through the door, watching those smiles change over time, and seeing the difference in each person’s self-confidence! I greet everyone as they arrive, answer our phone, and schedule appointments. I also assist when patients and parents have financial questions. I’m here to make sure everything runs smoothly and am always glad to help!

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband, young son, and our family Chihuahua. In my spare time, I enjoy arts and crafts projects and catching up with friends.


Melissa

Treatment Coordinator/ CDA II

I love spending my days helping people, and making sure every patient has a great visit. It’s fun to make them laugh, and watch their beautiful smiles take shape. I provide assistance to Dr. Fernandes and our hygienists as they deliver patient care. I’m there to make sure they have everything needed and to support our patient. I also sterilize and prepare our instruments and complete the initial patient records.

I’m from Colombia and came to Canada when I was 10. In my free time I enjoy dancing and Latin music, such as salsa and bachata. I am an only child and I live with my parents and pet Chihuahua.

 

 

 

 


Lindsay

Registered Dental Hygienist

I love seeing the results of the treatment we provide. Changing a person’s smile makes them so much more happy and confident, and watching that happen never grows old. I help Dr. Fernandes and our hygienists during various procedures, supporting them and making sure our patient is comfortable. I also take X-rays, photographs, and orthodontic molds, and sterilize and disinfect our instruments.

I’m currently in school to become a dental hygienist, so I spend a lot of time studying. I share my life with my dog, Buddy, and love spending free time with my family.

 

 

 


Anngela

Registered Dental Hygienist

I love being part of a team that creates beautiful smiles, one person at a time. It’s so much fun to become friends with our patients, and watch them become more confident as they see their smile change. I work one-to-one with patients, providing a variety of orthodontic services. It’s my goal that everyone is smiling and happy at the end of their visit. We talk and laugh, share stories, and I find I learn something from each conversation.

Outside of work, I enjoy cooking, running, and spending quality time with my family and friends.

 

 

 


Krystine

Registered Dental Hygienist

I love all aspects of orthodontics, especially building friendships with our patients and parents. But the best is seeing a patient’s face light up when they look in the mirror and see their amazing new smile for the first time! I provide a variety of patient care, including placement and removal of brackets, bands, wires, and appliances. I also teach patients about their oral hygiene and what they need to do to keep their mouth healthy while going through treatment.

I’m a married mother of two. When not in the office, I’m chauffeuring my kids around to their various extracurricular activities. When I can find the time, I enjoy mountain biking and skiing.

 

 

 


Pam

Registered Dental Hygienist

I love providing personalized care to our patients. Getting to know who they are, and making sure they enjoy their visits is important to me and the rest of our team. I focus on clinical care, including the placement and removal of brackets and bands, and placement of appliances. I also handle the completion of patient adjustments and provide patient education. It’s important each person takes good care of their mouth during treatment, so everything goes smoothly.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling, kayaking, and camping. I also like spending time with family and friends.
