Susana MeehanAfter receiving her bachelor’s degree from Ryerson Polytechnic University, followed by a Registered Dental Assistant diploma, she began her dental career in 1995 as a short-lived dental assistant in Toronto before transitioning into a dental sales rep. Moving to the Rockies in 1997 changed her career path into dental administration, which immediately led her to realize that her passion and forte was in implementing and organizing hygiene and recall programs, as well as auditing practices during and after sales transitions. She started at the office in September 2012 as a business manager with a desire to expand her dental horizons beyond “drilling and filling” and into a practice that focuses on the patient relationship as well as the dental and whole health connection. She enjoys her time at her cabin in central Alberta with her family and dreams of her Bohemian retirement on the beaches of Mexico one day!
