We Love What We Do… And It Shows

But we also understand what’s even more important than teeth:

The people attached to them. 

The people who come to us for help.​

The people who we make smile.​

The people we work beside.​

These are the things that really matter.

In her spare time, Mel enjoys spending time with her family and friends.

Naomi went to a private dental hygiene college and has been a dental hygienist since 2010. She was awarded the Katy Damond Award, which is given to an individual for positivity and leadership qualities. She began working at Clarence Street Dental in 2011 and enjoys seeing the wide variety of patients every day. She says she has the ‘gift of gab’ and loves conversing with her patients each time she sees them.

In her spare time, Naomi spends her time with her husband, Scott, and their puppy, Kingsley. She says the way to her heart is through her stomach and that in order to work off the calories she consumes, her and her husband enjoy bike rides, hikes, and the gym.

Dental Hygienist

Lesley

Lesley spent many years trying to find what she wanted to do. Finally she found her love for dental hygiene as the idea of contributing to someone’s reason to smile was a pretty gratifying feeling for her. Having worked as a server/bartender for ten years she enjoys building relationships with people, which especially applies to all her patients in the dental chair. She says “getting to know my patients and being able to educate them is what I love to do”.

This is Lesley’s first year as a registered dental hygienist and she started right away at Clarence Street Dental after graduating from the Southern Ontario Dental College. She completed her Level II dental assisting to gain a base understanding of dental and the anatomy of the mouth before becoming a dental hygienist. She enjoys all aspects of dental but enjoys working with children as their sweet smiles can brighten anyone’s day.

Lesley loves to be outdoors, hiking, and going for bike rides. She has a 10 year old son (soon to be 11) who loves baseball and she is getting married this summer.

Dental Hygienist

Lauren

Lauren has been a Dental Hygienist with Clarence Street Dental for three and a half years, since graduating from Niagara College. She initially thought she wanted to be a nurse, but after some experience in the field she realized it wasn’t for her. Being a dental hygienist allowed her to stay in the healthcare field and help patients in a different way, and she hasn’t looked back since!

Lauren loves all her patients, but is naturally drawn to patients that are children, have special needs, and experience dental anxiety. Her ability to stay calm and be patient allows her to connect with her patients on a level that goes beyond treatment. Lauren believes that animal therapy is extremely beneficial, and brings her certified therapy dog Bella into the office to help her patients. Ask her if Bella will be “on-duty” at your next visit!

When she isn’t working, Lauren enjoys walks on the farm with her dogs Reggie and Bella, cooking for her family and friends, and traveling to warm places in the winter with her husband.

Dental Hygienist

Rosy

Rosy earned her dental hygiene diploma from George Brown College and her Bachelors of Science degree from McMaster University. Throughout her education she gained clinical experience in both private and community-based dental settings. She volunteered as a clinician and student mentor with non-profit dental organizations both locally and internationally, and worked in various dental specialties.

Currently at Clarence Street Dental Group, Rosy practices in both preventive dental hygiene and in orthodontics. She loves everything about the teeth and the mouth. She says she loves how they help us chew our food to feed our bodies, how they help us talk with one another, and how they express our emotions with a smile. She believes that teeth and the mouth are a very important part of health care, and finds that being a part of helping patients to achieve an optimal level of dental and overall health is very rewarding.

Rosy and her husband, Chad, have a fluffy goldendoodle together named Winston. She says they both keep her feeling loved and humbled for everything that she has in life.

Dental Hygienist

Jacquie

Jacquie has been a Registered Dental Hygienist at Clarence Street Dental since 2013. She attended the Canadian Institute of Dental Hygiene, a private college in Hamilton, and graduated in 2011. She started her career working at another office covering for a maternity leave before she began working at Clarence Street Dental. Before becoming a dental hygienist she was unsure of what she wanted to do, but knew a career in healthcare was something she was interested in. After doing some research, she realized dental was the perfect fit for her as she enjoys helping and educating others while also being able to balance a healthy work and family life. She works as a preventive dental hygienist and is on the orthodontic team. She loves coming to work with all her co-workers and enjoys catching up with her patients.

When she’s not at work, Jacquie spends her time with her husband of 5 years, raising their 3 kids. She says their first baby was their chocolate lab Jersey girl. She enjoys spending time with her friends and family, being active by going for walks and bike rides, and being outside working in her garden – but would never turn down the chance to take a good nap!

Dental Hygienist

Jenna

Jenna chose to become a dental hygienist because of the positive impact it has on her patients. Being a dental hygienist allows her to work one-on-one with patients in the community and she enjoys meeting people from all walks of life who she likely never would’ve met otherwise. She feels privileged that she gets to be part of their lives, hear their stories, and form relationships with them.

After graduating high school, Jenna went to Niagara College for dental assisting and worked as a dental assistant for three years in Burlington.

Dental Hygienist

Steph

Growing up, Steph thought her dental hygienist was the “coolest chick ever”. Steph’s passion to become a dental hygienist began in the fifth grade; and here she is all these years later! She says “it’s a super rewarding career, and being able to work at CSDG is the best part”. She loves the team she works with, and loves the wide variety of team members, including the dentists, orthodontist, oral surgeons, child specialist, dental hygienists, dental assistants, and front desk team. Ever since she started working here, she has grown close to her team members, and says the time has flown by!

Steph completed the Dental Hygiene program at Niagara College with Honours. She was hired here right after school and has recently had the opportunity to start working with Dr. Mark Pus, our orthodontist, and his fantastic team. Steph also loves working with children and encourages them to ask questions not only about their teeth but anything they want to know about her. She hopes to work with the youth in the community to help them build a better understanding surrounding oral health and overall health. Her greatest joy is the smile her patients have when they’re proud of and empowered by their own smile!

Growing up with her three siblings on a hobby farm brought upon her passion for caring for animals. She could talk about her dog, cats, cows, chickens, and birds all day if she had someone who would listen! Steph focuses a lot of her time and energy on fitness – and says it’s because she’s a foodie and has to make sure she’s able to try all the food she wants.

Not only is she a hygienist, she is part of our Orthodontic team. Sarah chose to become a dental hygienist because of the interaction with her patients. She enjoys meeting the wide variety of patients that step into our office, and hearing about their families, travels and stories, even if it is only for an hour at a time. Sarah takes pride in connecting with her patients by listening to them and by making them comfortable. She also believes that patient education is very important and is always keeping them informed about their oral health.

She has experience in many departments, including general dentistry, orthodontics, and periodontology.

Of all the patients she see, Heather enjoys working with patients who have been absent from preventive care for a while. She says she likes being able to uncover their health goals, develop a plan with them, and be able to share in the success of that plan when implementation is carried out effectively.

Heather is originally from Windsor and says “the worst part about moving away is not being able to watch the Detroit Tigers play on a regular basis”. She enjoys spending time with her dog, Leonard, is a regular CrossFitter, and loves running (she’s completed multiple 5ks, 10ks, 10 miles and half marathons! Wow!).

Dental Hygienist

Jennifer

Jennifer’s passion for dentistry has been rooted in the profession for 28 years. She began her career in 1992 as a Dental Assistant. After many years of working side by side with a dentist and in various administrative roles she decided to take the knowledge she had acquired and pursue a career in dental hygiene. This allowed her to develop one-to-one relationships with clients and further her clinical skill set. In 2003, she graduated Dental Hygiene with honours.

Her belief in the importance of educating and engaging clients in the treatment process helps to create successful outcomes and assist them in achieving their best quality of life. She takes pride in providing exceptional care in a fun and personable environment and developing longstanding relationships with her clients and their families.

Her clinical practice embodies oral health as a fundamental component to optimal health. Jennifer has a special interest in matters related to early growth and development, orthodontics, healthy airway space and how it impacts our overall emotional and physical well-being, as well as our dental health and development. She recently expanded her learning to include myo-functional therapies and is working towards her certification.

When Jennifer is away from her clinical practice she enjoys traveling, music, cooking, exploring nature, and all sorts of creative projects. She believes laughter is the best medicine for life and animals are a close second. But above all she enjoys her time spent with family and friends.

She moved back home in 2015 and has worked at Clarence Street Dental ever since. One of Lisa’s favorite dental accomplishments is volunteering at Clarence Street Dental’s annual Community Dentistry Day.
