“Maple Dental Hygiene Care is the expression of my passion and my commitment to help my clients achieve a healty smile for a life time.”

I am a Registered Dental Hygienist with the College of Dental Hygienists of Ontario and a Board Certified Orofacial Myologist with the International Association of Orofacial Myology (IAOM).

As a Certified Orofacial Myologist and CertBBM, I was able to expand the scope of my dental hygiene practice to educate my clients about myofunctional disorders and respiratory issues. By providing myofunctional therapy and functional breathing pattern retraining with Buteyko breathing, I’m able to wholly help my clients achieve a healthy smile for a lifetime.

I am also Certified in Buteyko Breathing Method and am a Member of Buteyko Professional International.

I completed my dental hygiene studies at Broome Community College under the supervision of the State University of New York and graduated in 1992 with an Associate Degree in science in Dental Hygiene. I was the recipient of the Sigma Phi Alpha Dental Hygiene Honor Society Award and the Proctor and Gamble Dental Hygienist Professional Award in Preventative Oral Health Care.
