Registered Dental Hygienist
Elspeth is an enthusiastic, charismatic and personable Registered Restorative Dental Hygienist. She started her dental career in 2003 as a dental assistant in a general and pedodontic practice in Montreal, Qc. while attending John Abbott College’s renowned, accredited Dental Hygiene program. She then moved from Montreal to Toronto to work as a Registered Restorative Dental Hygienist. With 10 years of dental experience she has chosen to pursue orthodontics, which has captivated her attention ever since she started Dental Hygiene. Elspeth’s primary goal is to make the patients of the Leaside Orthodontic Centre’s visits as comfortable and as pleasant as possible, while providing them with pertinent information, in order to guide them successfully through their orthodontic treatments. She speaks both French and English fluently and enjoys such sports as hockey, skiing, tennis, golf and surfing. When Elspeth is not working she tries to travel as much as possible with her husband and two children. Keep your eyes open as you might see her and her family on Bayview as she is a fellow ‘Leasider’.
