About Us


Office Manager/Financial coordinator
Certified Dental Assistant Level II
Dip. Administrative Management
Dip-Dental Nursing

I have been working in the dental field since 1992, and have a wide range of valuable experience in all areas of dentistry. My studies were done at the University of The West Indies and Dental Nursing School of Trinidad and Tobago. I enjoy working at Uptown Orthodontics because it's an amazing opportunity to be a part of each patient’s journey towards a beautiful smile and improved self-confidence.

Going to the movies, reading a good book and entertaining friends are what I enjoy most in my spare time.

Office Treatment Coordinator
Certified Dental Assistant Level II

I grew up in South Africa and moved to the USA. I attended Florida International University on a full swimming scholarship and graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree. My certification in Dental Assisting  was obtained from The Canadian Therapeutic College. Working at Uptown Orthodontics in the capacity of Treatment Coordinator/Dental Assistant is very exciting and rewarding as it gives me the opportunity to use my skills, knowledge and experience to its fullest. Making custom mouthguards and seeing each patient’s progress from start to finish are just a couple of things that make my day at Uptown Orthodontics.

When I am not at work I enjoy listening to music, traveling and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Registered Dental Hygienist

My diploma in Dental Hygiene was obtained from Durham College. The field of orthodontics is exciting and always evolving and being at Uptown Orthodontics gives me the opportunity to use my educational foundation to it's fullest. In my spare time I enjoy all kinds of sports and the outdoors. The best part of my job is to see how much progress each of our patients makes throughout their treatment and the revelation of their new smile!

Jenn, Dental Hygienist


Registered Dental Hygienist

I attended McMaster University and I gained my diploma in Dental Hygiene from George Brown College. Being a hygienist at Uptown Orthodontics is very rewarding as I get to be a part of each patient’s journey towards obtaining that perfect smile. My favorite day at work is when I remove a patient’s braces and a perfect new smile is revealed!

Horse back riding is one of my most favorite things to do. I also enjoy walking the dogs, spending time at the cottage and volunteering at a children's school in El Porvenir, Honduras once a year, which I absolutely love!
