Stephanie is so passionate in her role as dental assistant. Everyone of her patients love her, she is so compassionate and will listen and hear everyone's concern. She helps everyone in the office with their jobs besides her own time consuming and difficult duties.
We knew from the moment we met Michelle that she was the right fit for our team and our patients. Michelle has a warm, compassionate manner with patients of all ages. Being a young mother herself, she understands the anxiety felt by young children at emergency appointments. Whether she is ordering supplies, organizing service repair, teaching staff about new guidelines, or time managing between two restorative operatories, Michelle is always smiling. Throughout the 41 years of my dental career, 35 of them at this practice, I have met and worked with a number of individuals. Some enjoy their work and some clearly did not.
I can say without doubt that Michelle Dykstra chose the right profession, and that she is truly a credit to the team at Lindsay Family Dentistry.
Tanya has brought out her best. She has stepped out of her comfort zone and taken on new roles and responsibilities. She has taken on a new leadership role within our office. She brought together skills from within herself to allow others to shine and support within the team as well. She is the person/staff member others look up to and does this with respect, courtesy and loyalty.
Among her peers, Kathy is our go-to girl! She is so successful because of how she welcomes everyone and constantly shares her many years of knowledge and expertise. She is respected by everyone and her work ethic is excellent. She is discreet yet friendly and compassionate towards our patients. By overseeing the ordering of supplies for the practice, she has become an expert with our inventory. She is meticulous and thorough and recognizes cost savings. She has rarely missed the yearly Montreal International Dental convention where she has forged lasting relationships with our suppliers.
In 2019, Kathy will have contributed 30 years as a dental assistant in our practice. She is great at what she does and for this, we thank you Kathy, for your overall contribution all these years!
Ada is extremely knowledgeable in her field and is the backbone to our office. Her work ethic exceeds the norm and she gives 110% of herself on a daily basis by coming in well before her shift to make sure the office is running smoothly and staying beyond her shift if need be. With dedication and compassion combined with her patients and fellow colleagues, she brings a positive, calming air to our practice. Her memory is impeccable by remembering patients by name, their family and life events.
We know as a team we are truly lucky to have Ada at our practice all around as she is simply irreplaceable.
Sarah stops at nothing to provide the best treatment and service for her patients. She is never fazed by the stresses of her job or ever-changing technology surrounding it. If she is asked to do it she will. No questions.
Sarah is very smart very skilled and has unimaginable work ethic. Sarah is the epitome of hard work and dedication.
Chantelle is extremely hard working and has dedicated her life to our patients and our offices. She goes out of her way to make people comfortable and it's always "patients first" for her. Chantelle is also expected to work with 4 different dentists in the office to cover for other assistants when they are not available.
Our office is grateful for Chantelle and always try to make sure she knows that. She is an exemplary person and dental assistant.
Deb is kindest, sweetest, most wonderful person you would ever be lucky enough to have work for you or be friends with. Our patients love her. Difficult, anxious, elderly or kids are a speciality for Deb. Everyone is treated like family and with great care and respect. My dental days are more joyful with her in them.
Deb is wonderful company to us on our dental path. She is the heart and soul of our dental practice and we would be lost and at a loss without her golden heart.
Meredyth is always smiling, friendly, outgoing. She comes to work every day with a positive attitude that is contagious. She is willing to help anyone and everyone - whether it is fellow CDA's, receptionists, ordering - she does extra tasks without being asked - and always wants the best for our office. She is very bubbly and makes all patients feel at ease when they are in the chair - even patients with a terrible fear of dental work.
Everyone loves Meredyth and she is a valuable employee at our office. We feel very honoured to have her at our office.
Jennie is a team player who always goes above and beyond for her patients and for the all the staff in the office. Interesting and interested, Jennie remembers which patient wants a pillow behind their head, who requires topical anaesthetic for their scalings, and she always has a squeezey toy at the ready to help distract the patients during injections. Jennie is eager to learn and has mastered radiographic technique and is always called upon to take radiographs for the other dentists and assistants when we have difficult patients.
She is always happy step in and help with a smile.
