Chantel, dental assistant

Hi, I’m Chantel! I am so lucky to have found a practice like Smith & Smith. They have all become my second family. I’ve been a dental assistant since 2013 and couldn’t be happier being with Smith & Smith since 2016. I enjoy being able to work with the best in our field and with the most advanced equipment. I take pride with being able to help our patients from the very first visit to the very end when they leave with a smile.

When I’m not at the office I’m home or hanging out with my daughter, Shania and puppy, Parker. Whenever we have a chance we try to travel and make new adventures. Hope to see you soon!
