Getting To Know You Better

I remember being a little kid and wondering about my dentist… All I knew about them was their name. I knew nothing about who they were as a person. Definitely a bit of a mystery as was the care I received.

The world has changed and the formality between generations and toward the medical profession has relaxed a lot. I’m glad for it, because it opens the doors to so many more enriching relationships with you, my patients.

To start a conversation, I thought I’d give you a bit of a peek into my world – who I am and what I care about.

Here are 5 things that you probably don’t know about me …

  • I grew up in Toronto and, as luck has it, live only one block away from the house I grew up in. I love our neighbourhood!
  • In grade 1 or 2, I just knew I was going to be a dentist.
  • My favourite pastime is cooking. (I’ll save the chat about my signature dish for when you come in!) I also like to go to live theatre, especially musicals which are always fun, plus I can sing along!
  • My most recent sports jag is learning to skate and ski. I’m really enjoying it and am pleased with my progress!
  • Dentistry is my life, but my family is my love. I have a husband and two sons whom I adore and my ideal vacation is anywhere, as long as I’m with them!

Did I miss anything that you’d like to know about “your dentist”? If so, let me know!

I look forward to seeing you and your family soon!
