Stacey (Dental Assistant)
In 2010 I graduated from CNC’s CDA program in Prince George, BC. After graduation, I moved back to the Lower Mainland for work and have been working for North Shore Dental Group since October 2011. One of my favorite things to see is how patients, who were once nervous and scared, come in now and all fear has gone. It makes me happy to give patients the best experience possible.
