Our dentists couldn't do the great work they do without an undeniably fantastic team - many of whom have been with us for decades! These ladies make our clinic hum. You will love them, with sensitivity, advanced tools and techniques, and a healthy sense of humour.
They greet people.
Every time you visit Ocean Park Dental, one of these three women will greet you with a smile and let you know they are here to help. Lia has been greeting our patients for more than 25+ years, Tammi for 14+, and Bailey for 5+. They live and breathe Ocean Park Dental, know our patients on a personal level, and work hard to book appointments, prepare insurance papers, send kind reminders, and contact clients.
She knows teeth.
Nadine is a Certified Dental Assistant (CDA) and has worked hand in hand (and often hand in mouth) beside Dr. Tom Cragg for more than 35+ years. Today, she works as Dr. Bajwa’s assistant. Nadine is thoughtful and caring and has the memory of an elephant. If you mention how your mom’s cousin used to be a patient here in the 80’s, she’ll know exactly who you are talking about.
The brains of the operation.
Bev is a Certified Dental Assistant (CDA) and Office Manager. She has worked alongside Dr. Gary Baker for 30+ years. She knows the ins and outs of dentistry better than anyone. If you have a question, she’ll have the answer.
She keeps things ticking.
Leanna is a Certified Dental Assistant (CDA) and has worked with Ocean Park Dental for just over a decade. She works closely with Dr. Coby Cragg and his patients to make sure their appointments run smoothly. She has a penchant for organization and never misses a beat. Your appointment will be efficient, timely, and on task with Leanna by your side (and in your mouth).
She keeps kids cool.
Shannon is a Certified Dental Assistant (CDA) who specializes in emergency dental care and pediatric dentistry. Kids love Shannon and she loves them right back. She has a magical way of helping children feel comfortable in the chair and experience their first dental visit with a smile.
She's a flossing aficionado.
Sonia is a Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH) and a stickler for flossing. If you tell Sonia that you floss regularly but really you don’t, she’ll know. And after a mildly disapproving glance, she’ll work with you to achieve optimal gum health. If you’re not a fan of flossing, Sonia will change that. Resistance is futile.
She's Mrs. Clean.
Diana is a Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH) who is meticulous and gentle. She wants your teeth and gums to be perfect – maybe even more so than you! She won’t stop cleaning until your teeth and gums live up to her high standards. Cutting corners is never an option with Diana on the team. Be prepared to be impressed.
She spreads dental love worldwide.
Mandy is a Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH) who has taken her love for teeth to Switzerland and back. She has great stories to help your time pass in the chair and loves to spread tooth love globally. If you want to see her roll her eyes, just mention to her what you read here.
She's a people person.
Esther is a Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH). She takes care of patients with a mama bear mentality. She watches over the staff too. Whatever you need, she’ll get it for you. She’s the first to help out and volunteer in any situation. If a smile was a person, it would look like Esther.
