Full Circle

Nearly twenty years ago a young girl named Kaila entered my office and became a new patient of mine along with her parents. She was always pleasant, full of spunk and inquisitive.  Over the years I was fortunate to witness her grow from a little girl through her teenage years and then blossom into a young lady.  
As a young girl she was always engaging and we interacted well together. As she journeyed into adulthood she expressed more and more interest in the dental field of which I was only too happy to provide any assistance.  I was pleased to train her and have her work in my office as a floater.  She easily managed many different jobs from sterilization to receptionist.
I was delighted upon hearing that she was accepted to the dental hygiene program at Algonquin College.  She worked hard through her studies, sometimes working at my office all the while a mother of three!  Recently she graduated from her program and I am proud to say she is gaining experience now as a hygienist in my office.  
How very satisfying to see Kaila come full circle firstly as my patient and now my hygienist.  As a woman and a mother I fully appreciate the fine balancing act between family and work.  I am grateful that my profession allows me to do both and the ability to help a young girl do the same.  

Dear Valued Patients,

The Royal College of Dental Surgeons, the body that regulates dentistry in Ontario, has recommended that all non-essential and elective dental services be suspended immediately. This is in response to COVID-19 pandemic and the need for social distancing.

The health and well- being of our patients, staff and the community is of the highest priority, and therefore I shall be closing our office effective March 16.

I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause any of you, and trust that you understand and support this measure. If you have a dental emergency please contact me at 613-255-7988 or via email at dentist@drchristineng.com.

I will endeavour to take care of you as quickly and effectively as possible.

We will continue to monitor this situation as it evolves, and as soon as things stabilize, we shall be contacting you to reschedule your dental appointment at the first mutually convenient time.

Stay safe and well.
