Debby - Registered Dental Hygienist
Hi, my name is Debby and I've been a Registered Dental Hygienist since 1990, and been practicing with Dr. Jeffries and the Dorset Dental team for the past 22 years. I enjoy providing great oral health care to my patients and families within our community. It has been a privilege looking after my long-term patients and it's a joy to meet new patients every day. I hope that I will have the opportunity to meet you and your family and help you to achieve your best smile!
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 13-year old daughter. I believe in the merits of a healthy lifestyle and so I enjoy participating in adult softball and soccer leagues. I enjoy supporting my daughter in her skating lessons and competitions. Reading and spending time with my friends and family 'round out' my busy life.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you to achieve your best smile possible.
Kemela - Chairside Assistant
Hi, I'm Kemela and I assume many roles and responsibilities at Dorset Dental since I joined the team in 2008. My primary responsibility is to ensure the care of our patients by assisting Dr. Jeffries in delivering great service and care to our dear patients. I enjoy helping each patient achieve their great smile through consistent care, and based on listening and understanding their unique wants and needs. My other important role is to ensure that our busy dental office has all the supplies needed to meet the needs of our patients. As such, I meet regularly with our clinical field partners and Dr. Jeffries to keep abreast of new supplies and innovative techniques, ensuring the best delivery of services to our patients. You may recognize my voice as I am often the 'one' reaching out to patients, gently leaving reminders that their hygiene is due.
At the end of each busy day, I look forward to going home and spending time with my husband, three wonderful children, and our family bird, "Chirpie". I look forward to seeing each of you very soon at Dorset Dental!
Mary – Registered Dental Hygienist
Hi, my name is Mary, originally from our nation's great Capital, Ottawa. I am a Registered Dental Hygienist and have been looking after the members of our community for the past 32 years: Where does the time go? I have been happily part of the Dorset Dental Team since 2005 and working with Dr. Jeffries and the Dorset Dental team is fulfilling and fun. I especially love teaching our younger patients how to brush and floss correctly. All the young children can be seen displaying their best smiles on our Dorset Dental Smiley Board!
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my husband and two lovely daughters. Together as a family we enjoy cooking, baking, watching movies, laughing and walking our dog.
I look forward to providing you and your family with many more years of great oral health care. New patients are welcome and I hope to meet you soon!
Sharan - Registered Dental Hygienist
Hi, I'm Sharan and I am part of the weekend-warrior Dorset Dental Team. One Saturday a month, I work as a Registered Dental Hygienist, providing our community with great oral health and instruction. I have over a decade of experience and I take great pride in working with patients to help them understand the fundamentals of good oral health and the benefits associated with it.
Throughout my tenure, I have developed a specialty for kids, which is why during my spare time I volunteer at the Hospital for Sick Children. When outside the dental office, I enjoy playing the piano, sailing on Lake Ontario, keeping fit, shopping and reading.
