Dental Hygienist

Derek took a careers class in grade 10 that required him to take personality quizzes that would help guide him into a career choice. Each time he took the quiz, dental hygiene would come up in the top 3!   Attending his orthodontist’s office on a regular basis, he observed the dental settling and believed he could flourish there.

From that point on, Derek followed through with his goal to graduate from dental school. He completed a year of dental assisting at George Brown, then moved to Barrie after being accepted into the pristine Dental Hygiene program at Georgian College’s Sadlon Centre for Health and Wellness.

Graduating upon the Dean’s List within the Class of 2014 was a huge accomplishment for Derek that made his mother and 2 brothers proud as he was the first person in the family to graduate from post secondary.

Derek went on to work in various offices all over the GTA which gave him a wide range of experience treating clients from all walks of life. He prides himself on taking quality care of every person he comes across with an empathetic approach while providing efficient treatment with a gentle touch that his clients can appreciate.

When he is not at the office, he enjoys spending time with his family, or passing time by watching basketball and boxing or reading personal growth literature.
