Meet the Team

Roni

Dental Assistant

Hi there, my name is Roni. I graduated from SAIT in 1980 and have been working at Dental Care for Children for the past 34 years. I love working with children and our special needs patients. Although most procedures are all the same, each patient is an individual, making the experience unique. In my spare time, I love spending time with my family, going on hot holidays, walking on the beach and reading in the sun. I have two grown daughters and a Cocker Spaniel named Tucker. Tucker and I will soon be volunteering at a hospital or nursing home together!
