The Dental 360 Family
Around the time Y2K was a thing, I started working as a receptionist in the dental field and I found the career that was right for me. In 2013 I joined the Dental 360 Family and I’ve been enjoying the camaraderie and cheerfulness of this clinic ever since.
My own family has a smaller head count of three, with my wonderful husband of 14 years and a son we adore. Who am I kidding, we have 2 more fuzzy family members and we find joy taking our 2 dogs out camping, hiking and exploring!
Treatment Coordinator/Dental Assistant RDA
My fellow team members like to call me “chatty Kathy” because, what can I say, I enjoy being social! You’ll frequently find me chatting it up with patients in the clinic or on the phone.
I graduated from the SAIT Dental Assisting program in 1985. After spending 30+ years chair-side, I’ve recently shifted to full-time treatment coordinating.
Friends and family are an important part of my life, and my husband and I enjoy taking our Harleys on roads less travelled.
Some sidekicks don’t like the title of sidekick. While I’m okay with it, I like to say I act as Dr. Meyer’s Right Hand Gal instead. Since joining the team in 2010, we’ve partnered in promoting awesomeness in dental health… one patient at a time.
I’m also the clinic’s musical lead, since I’m always singing and humming every song that comes on the radio. Sorry if it’s contagious, since it can be hard to join in when you’re the patient. :)
I began my career 3 years ago in orthodontics, and was also a Sterilization Assistant for Dr. Meyer early on. When the opportunity became available to work as a Dental Assistant with Dr. Meyer, I couldn’t pass it up! And I couldn’t be any happier with where I am now.
Away from the clinic, I find happiness outdoors with my husband and our two l’il pups. I could probably talk about dogs for hours!
I playfully pride myself on having the biggest family at the practice, and embrace the challenges and rewards of leading a troop of 5 kids. Naturally, my hobbies include taxi service and cheerleading for the many practices and events we’re involved in.
Dental hygiene has been part of my life for over 25 years and I’ve love the interactions with the patients I’ve come to know over the years, and meeting new people like yourself.
It’s all about family at this practice, and family is what brought me to Calgary as well. After graduating from the University of Manitoba, I headed back West to be closer to mine, and I’ve found a great home here.
I love my place here at Dental 360, and the atmosphere and people really support my values. Providing optimal oral health care is big for me, and I’m passionate about educating my patients.
I’m the clinic foodie, and I love seeing what Calgary’s restaurant scene has to offer each season. Share your suggestions with me!
I love the relationships I get to build with my patients, and seeing their growth over the years. It warms my heart hearing someone say they “can’t wait until their next visit” (yes, really) or “I can’t wait to see what colour your hair is next time!”
Like Dr. Meyer, I hold family near and dear . I married my high school sweetheart after 20 years of history, and our dynamic duo grew to a trio when we recently welcomed our beautiful daughter.
I’ve been a hygienist since 2007 and I pride myself on providing a nurturing, easy-going and educational experience while you’re in my chair.
Surely there are jokes to be made about me being a germophobe or a clean freak, and they do kind of make sense because I’m the Sterilization Assistant. And to say I’m detail-oriented would be an understatement, because my work revolves around microscopic organisms, the one thing I’ll advertise as not being welcome at our clinic.
Perhaps contrary to my obsession with germ-free cleanliness, I actually love to travel and explore. Discovering new and wonderful places to eat is something I think I’ll always find excitement in.
