Meet Our Business Team
Yvonne, born and raised in BC has worked in dentistry her entire career. After graduating from Douglas College as a CDA, she began her adventure in dentistry in 1982, first working chairside, later moving into reception, followed by treatment coordinating. With this experience and desire for new challenges, Yvonne became our office manager. Her passion for dentistry is evident as she works together with her team to educate and enable clients to attain their desired smiles. In addition to being a mom of two amazing young men, she wrote a children’s storybook called, “Sherman the Sugar Bug” that teaches young children the importance of good dental hygiene.
Jody was born in Edmonton, Alberta and moved to BC in 1990. She wanted to be in the Healthcare profession as she finds it gratifying taking care of people. She attained her Certified Dental Assisting certificate at Douglas College in 1994. Her many years of clinical experience have helped her to transition smoothly from being a CDA into her role as our Treatment Concierge. Jody can assist you in making an informed decision by providing you with an explanation of various treatment and financial options. Her goal is to hear what is important to you and help you maintain your smile.
