I have been involved in the dental field academically and practically for over 30 years. After gaining some experience as a dental assistant, I decided to pursue my studies as a dental hygienist. In 2000, I graduated from George Brown College with high honors as a Registered Dental Hygienist. I have since worked in private practice as well as taught at Toronto College of Dental Hygiene and Auxiliaries and my continued studies at Brock University, I have a diverse skill set.
In 2009 I started a mobile hygiene business which allowed me to be selected for a Pilot Project funded by Health Canada to increase oral health in First Nations Communities.
As part of the team at Maple Dental, the team’s trust, camaraderie, and drive to innovate in oral health has created the perfect environment for me to thrive as a professional in this field.
Through passion, meticulous attention to detail, a duty to individualized dental health, and a gentle touch, I can ensure a unique and fulfilling experience one smile at a time.
Born and raised in the GTA, this area has always been the place I call home. I graduated with honours from Niagara College as a Registered Dental Hygienist and I love being a hygienist. I am dedicated to helping my patients achieve their optimum oral health and strive to make your smile healthy and bright. I am privileged to work with a team of dedicated dental professionals devoted to making our patients feel comfortable and relaxed.
In my free time, I like to go on jogs, shop, and catch up on Netflix.
Originally from Alberta, I moved to Ontario in the early 90’s looking for a life change. I chose a career in Dental Assisting to allow me to utilize my people skills and take care of people. During my work placement while attending Career Canada College, I worked with Dr. Kapur and loved it so much that I have now been working as his Assistant for over 20 years! I have grown in my career and built a lifetime of relationships with team members and patients. As a wonderful and dedicated team, we strive to provide the best dental care that we can!
