Lisa is the proud owner of Dental Hygiene of Niagara. She graduated from Niagara College with her certificate in Level I & II Dental Assisting in 2004 before continuing her dental education at Canadore College, earning her diploma in Dental Hygiene in 2007. Following graduation from Dental Hygiene, she moved to Vancouver where she worked full time and completed the Local Anaesthesia course for dental hygienists at the University of British Columbia.
In 2009, Lisa moved home to be closer to family as her father was losing his battle with Cancer. She opened Dental Hygiene of Niagara in 2014, running all aspects of the operation by herself within its first year.
In 2016/2017 Lisa worked part-time as a clinical instructor at Niagara College in her ‘spare time’ and to date participates in speaking to the senior Dental Hygiene students annually regarding the different avenues of the profession, like, running an independent dental hygiene clinic. She is also a member of the ‘Dental Program Advisory Committee’ at Niagara College. Lisa has been the recipient of a number of awards over the years including the GNCC’ Women in Business award in the category ‘Emerging business of the year’ in 2017 and St. Catharine’s 40 Under 40 award in 2019.
A note from Lisa: ‘ Being a woman business owner, mother and wife can become a little complicated at times but the experiences I’ve encountered over the years have shaped me into who I am today. I am a true believer in experiences, and if one person can walk away from an experience being positive - we have no idea what that person will do or accomplish. I thank all my peers, past educators from all levels of education and previous employers. Every stage of life, there was someone special who was part of shaping who I am as a person and as a professional. My goals of making dental Hygiene therapy more accessible is strengthened by my drive to provide the public with better access to healthcare and experiencing a dental hygienist’s true scope of practice.'
