The Chinook Smiles team consists of the following team members.
Chinook Smiles Assistants
Level II dental assistants are multi-skilled health care professionals who possess a diverse knowledge base. They effectively perform clinical and technical skills. Their education and training, professionalism, and experience coupled with provincial registration and licensing qualify them to perform a variety of supportive and direct patient care procedures.
Intra-oral dental assistants prepare for and support patients for treatment by practicing universal precautions and infection control. They attend to the patient’s comfort and support in updating patient health histories.
Certainly, the role of the dental assistant is one that makes a big difference in the high quality of patient care that is provided by the team of dental assistants at Chinook Smiles.
Danielle, Shelly & Kim look forward to meeting you and your family!
Chinook Smiles Hygiene Team
The profession of dental hygiene is based on preventative dental treatment. The duties undertaken by a Registered dental hygienist help to achieve and maintain healthy gum and bone tissue, which contributes to overall dental and general health. Patient education is a major part of the tasks undertaken by our hygienists. What our hygienists do while you are in the office and what they educate you to do at home will help achieve the best outcome for your oral health.
Dallas, Heather & Lily look forward to meeting you and your family!
