DENTIST / OWNER
I have been practicing dentistry for over 19 years. I graduated with honors in Biology at Concordia University in 1994 and received my Doctorate of Dental Medicine at the University of Montreal, Canada, in 1999. I am also a graduate of Dawson Institute for TMJ and occlusion in dentistry. I’ve continued my education with advanced courses in holistic and biological dentistry, implantology, sleep apnea, and patient care. I specialize in safe mercury removal and ongoing tooth sensitivity.
Holistic approach in treating my patient has been my focus. Our oral health has a crucial role in achieving whole body health therefore, my mission is to be a key player in people’s health journey.
I am an accredited member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), have the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART) certification and became a member of the American Academy of ozonetherapy (AAO) through certification. Also member of the International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine (IABDM) and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID). I strive to deliver the most wonderful dental experience combined with the highest quality of dentistry.
Jennifer and I have a wonderful family of four children: Riley, Madyson, Ethan and Maverick. They are our joy. Our passions are mentoring, helping others, learning, reading, and success in all aspects of life. I also love outdoor activities such as fishing, skiing, and snowboarding and am in fact, a snowboard and tennis instructor
OFFICE MANAGER / OWNER
I started as a dental hygienist back in Montreal, QC, Canada and have been fulfilling the role of office manager since 2010. I have been in the dental field for the past 12 years and absolutely love it! What I love most is helping people solve any and all challenges they may encounter, from understanding and choosing the right treatment plan, to the financial aspects of their decision. Most importantly, I value the relationships I have been able to build with our patients. Today, I am the wife of a wonderful man and a mom to four sublime kids, but I am also a woman who is passionate about making a difference.
After deciding to make a career change, I earned my dental hygiene degree from Prairie State College in Chicago Heights, Illinois, in 2005. I was chosen to be a member of the Dental Hygiene Honor Society which evaluates scholarship, service and character as its criteria for its membership. I was also the recipient of the Excellence in Patient Care Award that year.
I believe that each patient comes to the dental cleaning appointment with unique needs and expectations. I am committed to helping each patient have the most positive experience possible. I enjoy getting to know each patient on a personal level and helping those with anxiety or sensitivity have a positive dental visit.
It is an exciting time in dentistry because more is becoming understood about the connection between the condition of the mouth and the rest of the body (and vice versa). My goal is to use this knowledge to help each patient to optimize their dental and overall health.
I lived in or around Chicago most of my life until my husband and I moved to Oregon in 2007. We are thrilled to be raising our son in the Portland area and enjoy hiking and camping in the beautiful northwest as well as cuddling with our cats at home.
I graduated form Anthem College as a dental assistant in 2014. I chose this career because I love the feeling of helping people with their health and seeing how happy they are with their new smile. I also enjoy doing volunteer work. I have been married for 6 years and we have a 2 year old daughter and two fur babies Rambo and, Ruger. I enjoy doing outdoor activities like snowboarding with my husband, and cooking Hawaiian and Mexican food.
Originally from Selma Al, I attended UEI in San Diego, CA and graduated as a dental assistant 2011. I later moved to Tallahassee FL in 2014 with my family and attended UFC in Gainesville Florida where I deepened my dental assistant career and received my Expanded Function Certificate and Radiology Certificate. I strive to ensure our patients always feel 100% informed and comfortable during their visit. To me, there’s nothing more gratifying than educating and helping patients overcome their dental fears. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family, friends, and God. I also love going to the beach, bowling, cycling, and making people laugh.

“I was Pascal’s right-hand dental assistant for 3 years and he is truly amazing. He really loves his work! Our patients loved him and he has great bedside manner. He cares and listens to you, he won’t judge you or what your mouth may look like, he will make a treatment plan for you, and make you look great. I saw it on a daily basis!”
