Dental Assistant

This is Nikki! She is a fun loving level two dental assistant with a passion for making her patient as happy & comfortable as possible. Nikki has lived in Northumberland her whole life, mother of a beautiful almost three year old daughter, Grace. In her spare time she enjoys the outdoors, fishing, walking/playing with her German Short Haired Pointer on the farm & cooking delicious meal with her fiance, Cody.



As a professional dental hygienist since 2003, my calling is to serve people & develop lasting relationships through the provision of dental hygiene care.

With my strong dental background, I can provide you with outstanding dental hygiene care in a relaxing family friendly atmosphere.  I have advanced training in orthodontics, oral cancer screening & soft tissue laser therapy.

In my spare time I hike, visit my children and love my mini dachhund Kefli.



After 15 years in the customer service industry I decided to go back to school to pursue my interest in the dental field, graduating Georgian College in 2015. During my education I had the opportunity to take part in a mission relief trip to the mountains of the Dominican Republic providing dental education, care, & much needed supplies.

I grew up in the Kawartha Lakes, & moved to the GTA 9 years ago to be closer to family. However, the city life is not for me, so we recently relocated to the Northumberland area.

In my down time I love to spend time with my family, going to sporting events, traveling & scuba diving.



I have been in the dental field for over 25 years & have thoroughly enjoyed meeting new patients & dentists along the way. I enjoy time with my family. My hobbies include flower arranging, running & outdoor living!
