Deserai, Our Certified Dental Assistant
A recent graduate of Vancouver Island University Certified Dental Assistant program, Deserai made the transition from her training to our team after spending her last practicum session at our office in May 2017. Once we saw how well Deserai fit with our team and observed how she was making great connections with our patients, we welcomed her to Dahlstrom Dental without hesitation. Prior to her new career as a CDA, Deserai worked with artists of many mediums and as an artist herself, she shared her gift with others by giving art lessons to children. Deserai is excited about her new career and looks forward to making your visits with us comfortable, stress free and even enjoyable!
Rebecca, Our Certified Dental Assistant
Rebecca is also a recent graduate of Vancouver Island University Certified Dental Assistant program joining us in the summer of 2017. She entered the CDA program after completing grade 12 at Duncan Christian School. As a volunteer at a local kids camp in the summers, Rebecca's experience gained by working with children makes your children's visits with us fun and educational. In addition to seeing to our children's dental needs here at Dahlstrom Dental, you may find her assisting Dr. Dahlstrom on various procedures or working in our lab.
