Hygienist

Kelly, RDH

Kelly, Registered Dental Hygienist

Kelly is our Registered Dental Hygienist & we were delighted to have her join our hygiene team in 2009. Kelly is a native of Greater Vancouver, or as she says, “born & raised a Vancouverite”. Her youth was spent in Port Coquitlam & she moved to Maple Ridge in 1999. She is a graduate of Pitt Meadows Secondary School. Kelly has worked in dentistry for over 20 years, 16 years as a certified dental assistant & as a hygienist since 2009. As a hygienist, her main area of concern & expertise is her patient’s periodontal health. She is particularly interested in assuring each patient of a positive experience as well as a thorough cleaning.

Kelly leads a very busy home life with her family & Xena, their “seven pound mutt.” In between the children’s hockey, skating & bowling activities Kelly likes to get out on Alouette Lake with the kids & the dog. She also likes just going for a nice walk when she gets a moment. Her sense of balance & easy-going nature serve her well both at home & here at the office!
