Doris began her dental career initially as a dental therapist in 1992. Her first job was in a far-away place called Clyde River, NWT. She later worked in remote regions near Yellowknife and northern Saskatchewan. In 1995, she graduated from the dental hygiene program at SIAST in Regina, Saskatchewan. Being a native Calgarian, she eventually made her way back, and started working at Comfort Care in 1998. Being at the same practice for so many years, has given her the unique opportunity to really get to know her patients. These interactions, whether discussing recent trips or the importance of flossing, are truly what she enjoys most about being a dental hygienist. Doris strives to make a difference in someone’s oral health, providing a high-quality and comfortable dental hygiene visit. During her fee time, she likes to swim 2-3 times a week and she recently took up piano again after a 30 year break. Doris and her husband enjoy biking and travelling when they’re not attending to their very demanding chihuahua.
