Meet Herissa – Dental Hygienist

My name is Herissa, I’ve been a dental hygienist for 5 years and am so proud to be part of the Forestbrook Dental family. I went to school at George Brown College, Dental Hygiene Program, School of Dental Health. During my training, I was on the Dean’s Honours list and took part in many opportunities to serve the community. I believe learning as much as you can only improves you as a person, so I love to learn new things both in hygiene and dentistry.

My favourite part of my job is helping to improve the oral health of my patients and seeing them be able to eat, function and smile confidently. I love meeting people from all walks of life. Dentistry is a very caring profession, and the relationships are the best part of it. I will always try my best to provide patients with the utmost care and service.

I love keeping busy and living an active lifestyle. I enjoy spending time outdoors to enjoy nature whenever possible; I love hiking and running in nature trails and parks. I also enjoy sports, my favourites being volleyball and basketball.
