Kassandra, who has been a part of the Brentwood team since 2008, was born and raised in Calgary where a quick passion for figure skating developed at the age of 6. At age 19 Kassandra made the tough decision to let go of her Olympic dream and hang up her skates; she chose to begin a different career path at KDM Dental College where she graduated as a Registered Dental Assistant (RDA). Kassandra brightens up the days of patients and colleagues alike with her charismatic smile and bubbly personality.
In 2013, with the support of management and coworkers, Kassandra decided to further her education by enrolling in the preventative dentistry program at SAIT. Completion of this course has allowed her to perform limited scaling and expand her scope of practice as a RDA.
After three years in Victoria, supporting the education of her husband, Kassandra has returned to Calgary and to the Brentwood Village Dental Clinic. The timing couldn’t have been better, as we were pleased to offer Kassandra a promotion to Clinic / Business Office Supervisor. We know that Kassandra will thrive in this role and continue to enhance our clinic.
In her spare time Kassandra enjoys spending time at her home away from home in Whitefish Montana, spending lots of time with family and friends, going to the gym and challenging herself with new adventures. Most of all, Kassandra enjoys spending time with her husband and seeing the wagging tail of their Yorkshire Terrier, Sydney, who is there to greet them every day when they arrive home.
Kassandra and her husband are excited to expand their family and welcome their first child in April 2019!

Her infectious smile and sincere demeanour soon won the hearts of co-workers and patients alike. Amanda can always be counted on to go the extra mile for all the patients in the clinic.
In her second year of employment it became evident to the clinic managers and dentists that Amanda possessed a vast talent for writing. It didn’t take long before she was writing and rewriting all of the clinic’s patient education material and recall letters.
We are proud and pleased to say that at the time of writing this bio Amanda is now the clinic’s media manager. This part of her job description includes creating, writing and editing all of the clinics printed advertisements, brochures and posters as well as an ever changing vast array of patient education material.

In addition to the website Amanda manages and maintains the clinic’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages, constantly keeping our social media current, relevant and entertaining.
The clinic also has a blog of which Amanda is the sole editor and manager, posting researched peer reviewed articles and helpful links as well as excellent relevant articles she has written herself drawing on her vast knowledge of the industry and her passion for health and helping others.
Amanda still keeps herself grounded with regular shifts at the reception desk helping patients of the clinic. She is also a front office supervisor handling many human resources tasks as well.
Amanda is passionate about children and all issues related to children. Specifically, she is very interested in childhood dental problems. She writes passionately about prevention education and treatment of childhood dental problems.
She is an avid supporter of many children’s and women’s charities. Amanda single handedly organized the clinic’s sponsoring of a child for Christmas 2012 through the Alberta Children’s Hospital.

As a wife and mother to two lovely daughters, Amanda has chosen to work part-time in order to maintain a balance that works for her and her family. Amanda is also very involved in her children’s schools. If Amanda wasn’t already a dental receptionist we could picture her as a professional party planner. She is so crafty, she actually pulls off Pinterest. Amanda has also been known to create awe-inspiring baked creations and somehow amongst all her hobbies and projects she still finds time to be a successful Scentsy consultant.
