Andria dental hygienst at Archer Dental

Andria - Dental Hygienist

Andria graduated from George Brown College with Honours in 2005, and now has a decade of experience working in Orthodontics.  She takes great satisfaction in the quality of her work, especially when it's complete and the patient gains new confidence and new happiness because their smiles are real, and beautiful.  Andria also gets great satisfaction teaching patients about common oral diseases like gingivitis, tooth decay and periodontal disease (gum disease) and how easy it is for people to reduce the amount of bacteria in their mouth mornings, noon and night. Before finishing her dental education at George Brown College, Andria attended Trent University where she obtained a Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in Psychology. This prior education comes in very handy in a dental office, and she uses her skills at navigating complex emotions to know when her patients are most able to retain helpful information that will make them healthier. The fun side of Andria likes to ski, sail in her friend's boat, ride horses in the country and watch old Western movies on TV.
