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.
I began my dental career in 1992 as an assistant and went back to school to study dental hygiene. For the past 19 years, I have worked in the fields of periodontics and restorative dentistry. My approach to my patients’ oral health is holistic. I truly believe that the body is connected and it functions as a unit. If one part of the body is not functioning properly, the whole body becomes compromised. The education and experience that I had and continue to receive is based on a team-based approach to exceptional patient care.
My time outside the office is spent with my father, church, family, and gardening.
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.
Hi, I’m Jose and I look forward to meeting you! In addition to cleaning your teeth and other regular hygiene tasks, I work under the direct supervision of the doctor on restorative care. I love getting to know people during their visits and becoming their friends. When I joined Underhill Dental in 2005, it was like finding my second family. I know you’ll love it here as much as I do!
I’m the father of two beautiful daughters, Sofia and Victoria, along with being “father” to two huskies, Apollo and Zeus. My time outside the office is spent taking the girls to their gymnastic events and swimming classes, or just hanging out with my family.
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!
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.
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.
Hello and welcome to your dental home! I’m Mary 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!
I love putting a smile on others’ faces in my personal life as well! I’m happy married and have two daughters who are at university. When not at the office, I enjoy gardening, spending time with my parents and friends, dancing and exercising, and being active in my church parish.
I attended Everest College for chairside dental assisting, graduating in 2013, and am excited to be a part of the Underhill Dental team. I believe that dentistry can be a truly comfortable experience as long as it’s provided with compassion and love. Our doctors and staff stop at nothing to ensure this standard is met.
I am married and enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
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!
Aisha, Dental Receptionist
I joined the supportive and knowledgeable staff at Underhill Dental in 2017, bringing with me almost a decade of experience in dental office administration and dental assisting. I enjoy greeting our patients with a smile and helping to create a positive, comfortable environment.
I spend my time outside the office travelling and shopping, and I’m very involved in my church.
Caron, Hygiene Coordinator
Hi, I’m Caron and am usually the friendly voice on the phone when it’s time to come in for a cleaning. I run the hygiene program, making sure our dental hygienists have plenty of time to take care of you and making sure you come in, too! I know not everyone loves going to the dentist, even for a cleaning, but Underhill Dental is different. We offer gentle dentistry, with a real heart. Our doctors and team work in harmony: we respect each other and genuinely care about your happiness and health. We’re here to serve and are honored to help you achieve a healthy, wonderful smile!
Outside of dental care, my greatest passion is travelling!
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.
