Meet our: Dental Hygienists | Dental Assistants | Administrative Team
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!
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 during 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 traveling, going on long walks with my dog and spending time with my husband and two kids.
Hello, my name is Mariah and I am one of the dental hygienists at Underhill Dental. I help educate patients in ways that they can achieve optimal oral health by developing a dental hygiene treatment plan specialized for each individual. I graduated from George Brown College in 2016. I have a passion for motivating patients so that they see the importance of good oral hygiene and home care. I also enjoy getting to know them and developing a professional relationship. Every team member focuses on the same goal, and that is to provide an excellent experience to each and every patient. We all put the patients and their interests first. Doctors and team members alike are always there to help one another. Everyone is equal which makes coming to work enjoyable and rewarding.
I love travelling with my husband and friends and I enjoy cooking and trying out new foods. I am always in the mood for a nice picnic on a sunny summer's day. I also like outdoor summer activities like bike riding and hiking.
Hi, my name is Enas. I am one of the dental hygienists at Underhill Dental. I help educate patients on ways to improve and maintain good oral health. I also check patients for signs of oral disease and provide preventive dental care. I have recently joined the team but I have been in the dental field since 2007. I love seeing patients achieve their optimal oral health. Our team here at Underhill Dental share the same goal of boosting the patients' oral health success.
When I am not providing dental care, I enjoy cooking with my two sons and hiking and travelling around Canada with my husband.
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!
