What Dentistry Means to Me? To me dentistry simply means helping people attain better health and avoid more serious complications of pain and infection. I also enjoy meeting new people and working with the best team on the island.

Activities / Hobbies: When I am not in the office you can find me out on the water boating, fishing or scuba diving. Don't be surprised to run into me wearing coveralls around town either if I have been working on my excavator.

Volunteer Work: I am a current board member of the Vancouver Island University Foundation, Director on the Board of the BC Dental Association, and was grateful to join Access and the Semiahmoo Dental Outreach in Kenya with my wife in June of 2017.

Michele - Admin. Team Manager

Home Town: Port Alberni, BC

What Dentistry Means to me: My first memory of going to the dentist was when I was about ten years old and I was playing tetherball. I banged my mouth on the metal pole and chipped my front tooth. My mouth was really sore and I was rushed to a dental office. My chipped tooth was restored and consequently restored various times since then through the years. I recall always enjoying my dental visits and picking out a ring at the end of my visit was the best! I always received excellent care and found the dental office atmosphere positive, caring, friendly and welcoming. There was no question that when I grew up I wanted to be a part of that, and now here I am . I love helping to make our patients' dental visits as positive as mine always were.

Activities / Hobbies: Running, camping, other outdoor activities and spending time with my family.
