Education and Experience
Born, raised, and educated in Winnipeg, Manitoba, I completed my undergraduate degrees in science (BSc) and psychology (BA). I also completed two years of research in neurovirology. I served as an associate dentist in Victoria from 1996 to 1998, during which time I was the director of the Victoria Dental Society. I joined private practice in February 2001.
I have had several opportunities to serve in a professional capacity with our local dental societies. I served as the Director of the Vancouver & District Dental Society from 1999 to 2002, treasurer from 2009 to 2011, and president from 2011 to 2012. I was also a member of the “Getting It Straight” Orthodontic Study Club (2003-2005).
As a founding member of the Canadian Academy of Esthetic Dentistry and the Canadian Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, I hold certifications in Invisalign® treatment and am a member of the World Clinical Laser Institute. I have completed Levels I through IV certification for the California Centre for Advanced Dental Studies.
