Our Dental Hygienists

Our dental hygienists are here to help you develop and keep a beautiful healthy smile! They’re warm, personable, experienced, and love to build lasting friendships with our patient family.

During your hygiene visits, your hygienist will examine your mouth for signs of dental and periodontal diseases. We’ll update your dental and general health record, take X-rays, thoroughly clean your teeth, and provide preventive and rehabilitative care.

A lot of your time with your hygienist will be spent talking about your oral health. We will show you the best way to keep your teeth and gums clean and recommend the right products for your specific needs. Your hygienist will also teach you about nutrition and how it affects your oral and overall health, and encourage you to develop positive habits.

Our hygienists want you to achieve a radiant, health-filled smile and enjoy it for a lifetime!



I was excited to bring my 35 years of experience to the compassionate team at Underhill Dental in 2017. My goal is to help motivate, educate, and engage my patients in achieving their optimal oral health, which promotes good overall health. I believe in fostering a healthy body, mind, mouth, and life!

As a long-standing member of the Senator O’Connor Hills community, I am proud to have raised my three children in the local schools and have been active in supporting local fun fairs, fundraising, and local produce growers. Over the years, our family has enjoyed curling at Avonlea, skiing, biking, tennis, hiking, wilderness camping, canoeing, and kayaking.



Hi! I’m Carola and I’m looking forward to meeting you! I’ve been part of Underhill Dental since 1990 and treasure the friendships I’ve made in that time. It’s a great feeling to be part of an amazing team where our number one focus is that our patients come first. Even better, we do it in a comfortable and fun environment!

When I’m not helping people develop healthy smiles, I enjoy travelling, long walks with my dog, and time with my husband and two kids.



Hi and welcome to Underhill Dental! I joined this amazing team in 2005 and work hard to make your comfort my top priority. I’m a people person and love building friendships with my patients. I look forward to each person’s visits as time with a friend to share some laughs.

I spend most of my free time with my spouse of 30 years, our two kids, and our young grandson. We also have a wonderful cat named Pawtawny. My hobbies include traveling, going on cruises, and reading.



Hello, I’m Lindsay and I’m excited that I get to help you develop a great smile!  I do that by promoting oral health through education, motivation, and a caring touch.  It is very satisfying when a patient feels confident with a job well done, and for me to see their improvements over time.  I joined Underhill Dental in 2017 after being in the industry for almost 10 years, and felt welcomed and part of the family right away.  I know you’ll love it here as much as I do!

Outside of work, I love to spend time exploring trails with my dog. During summer, I like to relax at the cottage, and in the winters, I keep active by curling.



Hello! I’m Rhea. I help my patients develop healthy, beautiful smiles by providing periodontal therapy in a relaxed, caring environment! I love seeing the delight on a person’s face at the end of a cleaning when they see how great their smile looks. I came to the practice in 2000 and immediately knew I was in the right place. Our team members are like family working together to provide quality, gentle care.

When I’m not giving a flossing demonstration, I enjoy spending time with my husband, son, twin daughters, and Boston terrier outdoors at the cottage. In the last few years, I’ve channeled my inner Ginger Rogers and learned how to tap dance.


Our Dental Assistants

You’ll meet our dental assistants in our clinic. They’ll be by your side throughout your visits, to provide education, reassurance, and encouragement. As with the rest of the Underhill Dental team, our dental assistants are here to make sure you have stress-free visits, understand your oral health, and assist you in developing and keeping your healthiest, happiest, most beautiful smile!

Our dental assistants keep the treatment areas and operatories organized, clean and sterile, stocked, and ready for your visit. They prepare the treatment trays with all the necessary tools, make the space ready for you, and will seat you in the chair. Then your dental assistant will prepare you to see the doctor by explaining what will happen and answering your questions. The assistant may take X-rays or impressions, as well.

During your procedure, your assistant will act as a second pair of hands for the doctor: passing instruments and ensuring the doctor has everything needed. At the same time, your assistant will be tending to you: checking that you’re relaxed and comfortable, and keeping you updated. When your procedure is finished, the assistant will provide home-care instructions, review what the doctor did, and answer any questions you have.

Our dental assistants are here to help. We do so with smiles!



Hello and welcome to your dental home! I’m Eileen and I look forward to meeting you! I love serving a diverse community and building relationships with so many interesting people! Our incredible doctors and team practice cutting edge dentistry with a gentle, compassionate touch, and a high standard of commitment to our patients. Underhill Dental is by far the most wonderful practice I’ve ever had the pleasure to work at!

In my free time, I can be found exercising, doing hot yoga, and getting creative by taking on small crafty projects.



Hi, I’m Grace and I’m here to help provide a comfortable, exceptional dental experience! I want you to achieve a smile that’s filled with confidence and to understand how to keep it healthy. It’s been my pleasure to be a part of Underhill Dental since 2000 and I love working in such a positive and supportive environment. Our team is one big family and you, our patient, are part of that family!

Outside of work, I love spending time with my spouse and two exceptional, adult daughters. I play baritone and love playing with my little dog Sue, too.


Portia Portia

As a dental assistant, my job is so much more than just assisting the dentist during dental procedures. I have the opportunity to educate people about their overall health, make them feel better about their smiles, and improve their self-esteem. I love working at Underhill Dental! The entire team radiates nothing but positive energy.

When not at the office, I love spending time in nature, dancing, keeping active with artistic projects, and learning languages.


Our Administrative Team

The Administrative Team at Underhill Dental is here to make sure we continue to provide customer service that has you smiling! Warm, friendly, and professional, they are truly people oriented. In fact, they all say that spending time talking and laughing with our patients is the highlight of their days!


Evangeline, Treatment Coordinator and Front Desk

Hi and welcome! I’m Evangeline and I look forward to saying hello in person, as I’ll be the first person you see when you come in and the last person to see your smile as you leave. You’ll meet me at the front desk where I’ll greet and check you in, update your records, and schedule future visits. I also work with you to find a financial arrangement that fits with your budget so you can get the dental care you need to keep your smile healthy. I love being part of Underhill Dental—I’ve been here since 2000 and have loved every minute!

When not working, I love to travel, shop, and spend time with my spouse and three children.


KellyKelly, Dental Receptionist

I joined the supportive and knowledgeable staff at Underhill Dental in 2018, bringing with me over 35 years of experience in dental office administration.  I enjoy welcoming our patients with a smile and helping them understand their dental treatment and insurance coverage.  I also enjoy getting to know our patients as most have them have been coming to our office for decades!

EileenEllen, Office Manager

Hello, I’m Ellen and I joined the Underhill Dental family in 2018.  I originally started in this industry back home in the Philippines when I began practicing as a Dentist in 1993.  After moving to Canada, I decided to stay in dental because I sincerely enjoyed building patient relationships in a team environment that strived to make a positive impact on the lives on its patients.  I found this at Underhill Dental, where the patient experience is everyone’s number one priority.

I spend most of my free time with my two teenage children and Frenchie named Max.  My hobbies include reading and cooking, practicing hot yoga, and trying out new restaurants and wines.

Paul, Business Manager

Welcome to Underhill Dental! I joined the team in 2016 and I’m really enjoying getting to know our patients on a personal level. We really have an incredible team at our practice and it’s an honour to oversee the office. My most important responsibility is ensuring we run smoothly so each of your interactions and visits has you smiling. We’ve created a relaxed office environment where we work hard but also know how to have a lot of fun!
