Registered Dental Hygienist

Cory has been creating dazzling smiles for 30 years in Grande Prairie, and gets instant gratification when she makes smiles sparkle! One secret about Cory is that she is a bit of a dental phobe herself. Therefore, Cory has spent the last 30 years creating a gentle and comfortable hygiene experience for her patients. She always takes the extra time and tlc that is needed. She has many non-injection techniques to help patients feel relaxed during a cleaning visit, including a certification in nitrous oxide (laughing gas). Nitrous oxide is a mild sedative that helps with anxiety and when combined with oxygen at the end of treatment it leaves you feeling alert, non drowsy, and ready to go back to work or proceed with your day. Cory always looks forward to seeing new and familiar smiles.
