Alex

My story originates in Winnipeg,  Manitoba, where I was born and raised. In 2006, my family and I moved to Calgary, Alberta, which is where we’ve resided ever since. My post-secondary journey began at the University of Calgary, where I completed two years of a natural science degree. The third year, I took a leap of change and attended the Dental Assisting program through SAIT Polytechnic, which lead me to become a Registered Dental Assistant nationwide! I have a passion for motivating and educating patients in regards to oral hygiene, and I love to see people smile. Outside of work, I enjoy playing soccer, doing yoga, spending time with my family (including my dogs!), and my friends. My dental assisting voyage began at High Street Dental, our sister office, which is also where I completed my practicum. I have been the dental assistant here at Mckenzie Lake Dental since the very first day we opened. I absolutely love the atmosphere in our office and the people I work with. I hope to see you soon, because I know you’ll love us too!
