I am one of 2 full time Registered Dental Hygienist's at Core Dental, and have been practicing hygiene at the office for the last 8 years. I started my dental career as a Dental assistant, studying in Calgary at Columbia College, then furthered my hygiene education in Toronto at Oxford College, before moving back to Calgary to practice. I look forward to helping patients to improve their oral health, and taking pride of their smiles. I have taken additional training in conscious sedation (nitrous oxide) and administer to patients whom are especially anxious. In addition, I have completed certification in Laser therapy, and implement as an adjunctive therapy to patients who suffer from periodontal disease. When I am not cleaning teeth, I enjoy spending time with my 4 younger siblings and friends, playing rec hockey, skiing and exploring new places travelling!
I am the office administrator at Core Dental, I enjoy meeting and getting to know our patients and feel fortunate to be a part of a dedicated and caring group of people who provide the care and comfort in a relaxed and inviting atmosphere for all of our patients. Wife and mother of two, I enjoy a lot of outdoor activities, movies, painting and trips back to Saskatchewan.
Ashley graduated level two dental assisting from Nova Scotia community college in 2014. After graduation Ashley and her family moved to Calgary. Shortly after moving she gained employment at core dental. Ashley enjoys her job as well and her team at core dental. In her spare time she can be found spending quality time with her daughter and soon to be husband.
I have been a Registered Dental Hygienist since 2010. In 2011, I graduated with my Bachelor of Science with Dental Hygiene Specialization from the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Alberta. My interest in the dental field began after a memorable job shadowing project in high school. I then connected my interests in biological sciences, teaching and healthcare and found my passion in preventative health. I love getting to know each individual patient so that I can tailor treatment plans based on their oral health condition. I love sharing what I have learned by helping to set realistic goals with my patients to make happy teeth and gums attainable. Outside of work I am likely playing volleyball, spending time with family (I have four super cute nieces), or devoting an unhealthy amount of time making desserts with my beloved icecream maker! 🙂 I look forward in meeting you and becoming your hygienist!
