Gina

Dental Assistant

Gina graduated from NSCC in 1997 and has been actively employed in the dental field for 25 years. After spending 22yrs working on the opposite side of the harbour I decided to return to my own community of Spryfield where I was born and raised to continue doing what I love. Making my patients feel comfortable and gaining their trust all while educating them is my top priority. If you leave feeling less anxious than when you arrived for your appointment I have done my job. Outside of work I love spending time with my two beautiful daughters and husband. I enjoy being in the outdoors especially by the ocean. I also enjoy volunteer work and giving back to my community. Myself and my daughters have volunteered at different shelters, either preparing food, serving food or providing them with items in need. I really look forward to seeing you soon, to ease your worries and provide you with the most optimal oral health care!
