The Tisdale Dental Group consists of three dentists, three dental hygienists, six dental assistants, and three receptionists, who all work together to make our practice run efficiently and effectively.
A dental hygienist is a professional who specializes in preventative oral health, typically focusing on oral hygiene. We have two full time registered dental hygienists at our practice; Kacie and Jenny. When you see one of our hygienists, they will focus on preventing and maintaining good oral health, educating patients to develop behaviours that promote better oral health, and provide therapeutic services (dental cleaning) to stop disease and maintain healthy gums and tissues.
Dental assistants assist our dentists in providing more efficient dental treatment. Dental assistants are a very important part of our dental team as they prepare the patient for treatment, sterilize instruments, pass instruments during procedures, expose dental radiographs, and take impressions. We have six dental assistants at the Tisdale Dental Group: Melissa, Shelby, Glenda, Melissa, Andrea and Latasha.
Our receptionists are a very important part of the dental team. Receptionists are the first people you see when you arrive at our dental practice and the last people you see when you leave. They answer the phone, book appointments, greet you at the front desk, assist you with your dental questionnaire and insurance information, and look after your financial transactions. We have three receptionists: Annika, Tracey, and Connie who are always welcoming and look forward to greeting you.
