Meet our Dental Hygienist Team!

After obtaining the proper credentials and registration from the College of Registered Dental Hygienists of Alberta, dental hygienists form an integral part of the dental team. Along with the dentist, dental hygienists work as part of the Ultima Dental Wellness team, offering many dental services and performing certain tasks involving direct patient care.

It is important to note that dental hygienists have to obtain formal training and education before it is possible to be registered. Most jurisdictions require at least a two-year degree in dental hygiene, as well as a number of science related courses as part of the program. Generally, a hygienist will have taken courses that provide background in oral anatomy, pharmacology, nutrition, and periodontology. Perhaps the single most common group of tasks associated with the profession involves preventive dental care. Gum maintenance is often taken care of by the dental hygienist.

Some examples of the duties that may be performed by our registered dental hygienist are: cleanings, engaging in root planning, and educating the patient in general oral hygiene. One of the most common tasks for the dental hygienist is the administration of local anesthesia.

Expanding the range of responsibilities that a dental hygienist may provide as part of the dental team often means patients are seen and treated more quickly than would otherwise be the case.

Our Dental Hygiene Team look forward to meeting you and your family!

Jamie | Dental Hygienist

Meet Jamie

Jamie was born and raised in Calgary. She attended the University of Calgary, and graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Biological Science. A dental visit had sparked her interest in the dental field, and she found that dental hygiene seemed to suit her best, so she went for it. Jamie graduated with a Diploma in Dental Hygiene from the University of Alberta in 2006.

Jamie started working with Ultima Dental Wellness in 2012, and has throughout the years enjoyed working with the staff and treating all the wonderful patients. ” I love to get to know people and build good relationships through my work. Trusting people to care for such a personal space like your oral cavity does not always come easy. It is rewarding for me to see changes in the right direction and make others proud of themselves for their accomplishments. I am always happy to help for the benefit of all.”

Jamie is married and has two lovely children. She enjoys hanging out with her family and friends. Her favorite vacation spot is Hawaii, but she also enjoys visiting the mountains, especially if it involves fitness or activity, and attending the spa for some relaxation time.

Jamie looks forward to her time with you!!
