Suzie is one of our wonderful dental assistants. She graduated as a Level ll in 2012. Being Spanish, Suzie is able to speak to our Spanish-speaking patients, putting them at ease. She has also taught us all to love Spanish food and salsa dancing and music. Suzie decided on a career in dentistry because she truly enjoys helping people and she has such a calming way about her that makes everyone comfortable.

Nicky is one of the newest, and yet longest, members of our reception team. Nicky is currently in the process of attaining her degree in Public Relations and Global Communications at Ryerson but has decided to take a two-year hiatus, so we took full advantage and put her to work.

You’ll know it’s Nicky’s welcoming voice when you call because her enthusiasm and energy are quickly apparent.
