Meet the Team

Adria

Registered Dental Assistant II

I love helping people: making sure everyone feels comfortable during visits and getting to know our patients. I work in the operatory, prepare and sterilize the treatment area, assist Dr. Gaultier with procedures, and offer patient care. It’s a pleasure to be part of a great team that helps people smile!

I’ve lived in the Grande Prairie area for most of my life. My husband and I have three children who keep us running! We look forward to summers camping and fishing, and enjoy hockey during the winter months.

Carrie

Registered Dental Hygienist

I love connecting with my clients. I’ve seen and cared for some of them for more than 20 years and treasure each of the friendships we’ve built. Most people think of hygienists as “teeth cleaners,” but we’re so much more than that! We are a link to better health; we help clients improve their oral health and overall wellness. Working with each client, we find areas to improve their home care, develop better habits, and achieve a healthier, happier smile!

My husband Kevin and I have lived in Grande Prairie all our lives. Our two high-school children play, watch, eat, and breathe basketball! Throw in a horse to keep us on our toes and we have an active, enjoyable life! Humor is an important part of my life and I’m thrilled to be invited to give keynote speeches on how to find humor in everyday life.

Chelsea

Registered Dental Assistant II

I enjoy working with a fantastic team, assisting a doctor who makes patients a priority, and helping people love their smiles! I prepare and organize the operatory, bring in and seat patients, and explain what we’ll be doing. Working chairside, I assist Dr. Gaultier with the procedure while supporting our patient and, when we’re done, I offer home-care instructions.

I was born in Grande Prairie and raised on a farm just outside the city. I’ve lived here my whole life, except when attending NAIT for my dental assisting technology diploma. I love being with my family, friends, and my cat, Petunia. I especially enjoy the summers, when I can boat, fish, and camp.

Cheryl

Dental Receptionist

I love getting to know our patients and being part of their lives. I meet and greet patients, book appointments, handle recalls, and coordinate the hygiene schedule. I also receive payments, liaise with insurance companies, and do the day-end and month-end balancing and reporting. We have an incredible staff here, and Dr. Gaultier is an amazing dentist who does everything possible to keep patients comfortable and smiling.

I’m a long-term Grande Prairie resident: happily married with two grown boys and a Yorkshire Terrier named Cliffy. I enjoy camping, fishing, boating, bike riding, travel, and personal fitness. My younger is a GPRC student and plays for the Wolves Men’s Basketball team. When they are playing, you can find me in the stands cheering for them as a dedicated sports parent!

Christina

Registered Dental Hygienist

I enjoy one-on-one patient interaction because our conversations create strong relationships. I examine patients for signs of dental disease, plan treatment, and then implement and evaluate the results. It’s wonderful to work with this team and Dr. Gaultier. We have a great dynamic: all of us united to provide quality care with a focus on each person’s specific needs.

I’m a busy mother of three young boys. I’ve been fortunate to balance my life with a mix of staying at home with my boys and working part-time as a dental hygienist. When I’m not at the office, I enjoy volunteering at my son’s school, working out, reading, boating, and camping.

Deanna

Registered Dental Assistant II

I enjoy getting to know patients on a personal level. It’s awesome to see them and catch up on what’s happened since their last visit. I especially enjoy providing a scared child with a fun, positive experience and earning his or her smile! My main task is assisting Dr. Gaultier with patient care. I also take X-rays, sterilize instruments, set up operatories and clean up after procedures, and handle inventory and lab work. We’re like a small family here: the staff and our patients!

I grew up on a farm southeast of Edmonton and moved to Grande Prairie in 2010 with the man I married in 2013. We welcomed our first baby in May 2017. We love the outdoors, working on our acreage and taking our Husky, as well as our three cats, for walks. We also enjoy travelling, internationally and locally.

Denika

Registered Dental Hygienist

My greatest satisfaction comes from helping people feel at ease in the dental chair and creating a positive feeling about dental care. My role is to provide regular dental hygiene and home-care instruction so patients reach optimal oral health and prevent dental disease. I love working alongside Dr. Gaultier and my teammates! We have an amazing environment; we respect each other and our clients.

My husband, two kids, our fur baby, and I moved to the area from Calgary several years ago. When I’m not at work, much of my “free” time is spent with family and the busyness of the kids’ activities. We’re also involved with our local church. I enjoy reading, learning, researching, and running. In fact, my goal is to do a Disney half marathon in 2019!

Jeannette

Registered Dental Hygienist

I like connecting one-to-one with clients: learning about their lives and building friendships while helping improve their health. I provide thorough dental cleanings, patient education, and preventive and maintenance care. It’s a joy to work on a team with a high level of professionalism as well as a commitment to patient happiness, and with a doctor who makes patients the top priority.

My husband Pat and I grew up in the Peace Country: myself in the Dawson Creek and Tumbler Ridge, BC areas and Pat in the Beaverlodge area. We have two children, Layla and Reanna, who participate in swim club, hockey, and a variety of school sports. We’re often found poolside, rink side, or courtside, cheering them on or helping from the bench. When I have the time, I enjoy hiking, yoga, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing.

Laura

Reception and Accounts

I enjoy talking with our clients, each of whom brings a variety of experiences to the office, and learning their stories. Working in the front, I welcome and check in patients, answer phones, and handle booking and recordkeeping. I also pre-authorize treatment, collect payments, and oversee billing. I really appreciate working with a friendly, knowledgeable, and caring team who strive to keep our patients smiling!

Outside of work I have a real variety of interests, from reading and sewing to gardening, sports, camping, and outdoor activities.

Lori

Receptionist

I like helping our patients feel at home during visits by answering questions about treatment, and making sure they’re happy with the care they receive. I coordinate our hygiene schedule, book appointments, answer phones, enter treatment plans and payments, do the recall reports, and perform day-end procedures. I love working here. Dr. Gaultier is an amazing, honest dentist who’s kind and down to earth, and my teammates are helpful, professional, and understanding.

My husband Brian and I have a son, Nicholas. We keep busy with Nicholas’s jiu jitsu schedule, which is six days a week! I work at two dental clinics and sell jewellery on the side, too.

Orleen

Registered Dental Assistant II

I enjoy working with our patients. I help each have a positive experience and strengthen our connection at each visit. Also, I provide chairside assistance: helping Dr. Gaultier and supporting our patients during various procedures. It’s rewarding to work with Dr. Gaultier. He’s an honest and caring dentist who is patient and understanding with everyone, and my teammates are wonderful people, all committed to doing what is best for our patients.

I teach yoga in the evenings and love hiking, biking, skiing, and almost anything outdoors. I also love to travel near and far, and always treasure time with my two grown children, Adam and Analise.
