Jamie was born and raised in Port Alberni and moved to Nanaimo in 2001. In 2009, Jamie graduated from the Dental Hygiene program at Vancouver Island University. She previously worked as a Registered Care Attendant caring for seniors. Jamie says the best part about being a hygienist is getting to know her patients and providing them with their oral health care needs.
When Jamie is not working she is off camping, traveling and most of all spending time with her husband and two beautiful daughters.
Anna also graduated from the Dental Hygiene program at VIU in May 2010. Prior to entering the dental field, she spent four years living and working in central California for various post secondary institutions. After settling back in Nanaimo in 2006, she returned to school to educate herself for a 'real job'.
Outside of work, she spends time with her three sons, walking the dog and enjoying the outdoors.
We are looking forward to her returning from her current maternity leave.
Deanne spent her early years in Nanaimo and then moved to Vancouver and then the Sunshine Coast. She has been in the dental profession for 25 years as an assistant and receptionist but returned to school in 2010 to pursue her hygiene diploma. She joined us in 2014 upon completion of her schooling.
Away from the office she enjoys time with her children, her two little dogs and her garden.
