The move inspired her favorite hobby, traveling and getting to know different cultures.
|Ariana , Registered Dental Hygienist|
Ariana is a registered dental hygienist who received her diploma in dental hygiene from the Vancouver College of Dental Hygiene in 2018. The career choice came from her love of serving the community, science and her own fond experiences at the dentist when she was a kid. Now she has come full circle and wants to impart the same joy she experienced from her dentist to the many children she serves working at ToothZone Kids.
Ariana enjoys spending time with her two older sisters and working with horses. In the summer, the beach and her convertible are two of her favorite things. She also loves to sing but is shy performing in front of an audience.
|Alicia, Registered Dental Hygienist|
Alicia joined our team as a registered dental hygienist after receiving her diploma in dental hygiene in 2018 from the Vancouver Collage of Dental Hygiene. Alicia was inspired to try dental hygiene largely due to the fun she had at the dentist as a child. Her goal is to provide the same fun and positive experiences she had to the children in her care.
Alicia loves the Bible, spending time with her family and learning about strange and unique animals. She also enjoys riding horses and going for long drives and soaking in the beauty all around.
