He has invested in significant continuous education so that he can provide a wide variety of treatment options to his patients using new technology and innovation.

Jen has known since high school that she wanted to go into dentistry. When she attended Oakville High School, she worked at a pediatric dental practice. She has been a dental assistant for over 25 years. She became a Certified Dental Assistant in 1999 and an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant in 2001, which is the highest level of formal education that a dental assistant can attain and allows her to take a larger part in creating beautiful smiles for our patients!
Jen can honestly say “I LOVE MY JOB!”
She enjoys all the smiles she meets everyday and the variety of expanded function duties that she is able to perform. Her favorite moments are when she encounters a new patient who is fearful of dental offices, but by the time they leave our office their fear has subsided and they have a great big smile on their face.
Jen enjoys going to Give Kids a Smile twice a year. She loves being able to help the children who otherwise would not have access to dental care. She has been to Honduras three times to help children and adults obtain the dental care that they so desperately need.
