Our Hygiene Team
We at Richmond Dental Clinic fully believe that dental health is a key component of overall health and by treating your dental diseases; we are partners along with your many health care professionals in supporting your overall well-being. We firmly believe that preventative care is a key component of obtaining and maintaining good dental health. With gum disease being one of the most major causes of tooth loss in adults, early detection and treatment of gum related issues would greatly improve the state of your overall health and help to obtain and maintain a beautiful and healthy smile.
Our dental hygiene team is focused on providing excellent preventative care through custom tailored treatment plans that meet your personal healthcare needs. We believe that every person is an individual and our patients deserve the best oral health treatment based solely on their unique situation.
Our hygienist Tina graduated with her Bachelor of Science degree, major in Dental Hygiene from the University of Alberta in 2001. She also got her certification in the delivery of local anesthetics. She is originally from Lethbridge but has called Calgary home since 2003. She enjoys staying active in a variety of activities such as snowboarding, hiking, and climbing and is very much enjoying Calgary's proximity to the mountains. Recently Achala also joined us. She graduated in the same class with Tina.
As patients have requested more available time in the evening and Saturdays, Agnieszka, an experienced hygienist from Beddington Dental Clinic, has also joined the Richmond Dental team.
Our Dental Assistants
Besides dentists and hygienists, our staff also includes certified dental assistants. Their role is to assist the dentists in performing clinical treatments. They also prepare all the instruments, making sure they are thoroughly cleaned, sterilized and in order after each use. Their presence in the chair side setting is important for our dentists to be able to perform at their utmost efficiency.
Currently, we have two full-time certified dental assistants Ashley and Stephanie.
