Danica – Registered Dental Assistant
I graduated from SAIT Polytechnic and have been working as a dental assistant for 6+ years. Working in the field of dentistry has been rewarding for me as I get to work with different case scenarios each day and get to be a help to people’s well being and their overall health.
Outside of work I enjoy bringing positivity and hope to the community through my volunteer ministry work, being able to teach others about the Bible. I also love to travel and do as much as I can outside the house! The mountains are one of my happy places. From hiking, snowshoeing, skating, snowboarding, camping, and trying new things with my friends is my jam! I’ve had the privilege of traveling to Belize, Israel, Spain, Italy, France, England and looking forward to exploring more places in the future.
Danica looks forward to seeing you in the office!
