Orthodontic Assistant

Fay

Hi, I’m Fay. My main role, as an orthodontic assistant, is to prepare your initial records, which include your photographs and x-rays during your first visit. I also take good care of you while you are wearing your aligners as well as your retainers when your braces are removed. I have enjoyed every minute of my experience here and have learned so much from my time at the practice.

On a personal note, I have two daughters, one of whom was treated at STO. In my spare time I enjoy reading, cooking, music, and the Internet.

I enjoy seeing how happy patients get once their braces are removed and how thankful and appreciative they are.

In my spare time I enjoy traveling to new places, going to beaches, hiking, and just being outdoors. One of my favourite shows is Cirque du Soleil and I hope to one day travel to Las Vegas and see all the shows. I look forward to seeing you at your next visit.

On a personal note, I have a son and daughter who are now young adults and out on their own. I am enjoying this “empty nest” stage in my life, with plenty of time for reading and golfing with my husband and friends. I look forward to helping you create your beautiful smile!

Josie

Hi, my name is Josie and I am a dental hygienist. I joined the team in 2009 and I find it very gratifying to be part of a team that creates such a friendly and welcoming office environment. My favorite part of working in an orthodontic office is seeing the bright, excited smiles when it is time for our patients to have their braces removed. It is rewarding to see not only the incredible progress their teeth have made, but also how enthusiastic they are to show off their new smile!
In my spare time, I enjoy meeting up with friends, going to the gym and my newest hobby – travelling. I look forward to being a part of your orthodontic treatment from the day the braces are placed, to the day they are removed.

Riding my horse and chasing my miniature dachshund, Frank, around is how I spend my spare time! I enjoy being outdoors as much as possible; snowboarding in the winter and travelling whenever I can! I look forward to meeting you at your next visit!

Orthodontic Hygienist

Jessica

Hello, my name is Jessica and I’m a dental hygienist here at STO! I began my journey as a dental hygienist since graduating from George Brown College in 2015. I’ve discovered a new passion for the work that I do since entering the world of orthodontics and I can’t imagine sharing these amazing experiences with anyone other than the great team at STO and the wonderful patients that come in to see us! Braces are great at improving oral health and changing your physical appearance, but to me, they’re also an amazing fashion accessory!! I can’t wait to find out what colours you decide to put on your braces!

Outside of work, I enjoy crocheting and convincing myself that I can eventually one day teach myself how to play the guitar. Next time you’re in the office, make sure to ask me about my 2 goofy bunnies, Brad and Dean!
