APRIL SZMATA – Registered Dental Assistant – Level 2


I was born and raised in the Peace Country area and have been working at West Hill Dental for 8 years. I took my post secondary education at Northern Alberta Institute of Technology and became a Registered Dental Assistant 3 years ago. I enjoy living a healthy lifestyle, love spending time with family and friends, my cat and two beautiful Siberian Huskies.

I have been working at West Hill Dental for 5 years and have recently become a Registered Dental Assistant completing my post secondary education at The Northern Alberta Institute of Technology. I enjoy living a healthy lifestyle and being outdoors as much as possible. Three years ago my boyfriend and I rescued a 6 month old Alaskan Husky from Meadow Lake, SK and she has completed our little furr-mily!

CHANTIELLE SZMATA – Registered Dental Hygienist
I was born and raised in the beautiful Peace Country. I have been working at West Hill Dental for 3 ½ years as a Registered Dental Hygienist after taking the dental hygiene program in Toronto, ON at the Regency Dental Hygiene Academy. Prior to hygiene, I was a Registered Dental Assistant for a year while living in Calgary, AB. I will be marrying my best friend in April 2016 in Jamaica. We have 1 cat named Charlie. The most important thing in my life is my family, travelling as much as possible and a healthy lifestyle.


MELANIE DEAN – Registered Dental Hygienist


I have been a Registered Dental Hygienist at West Hill Dental for 8 years. I moved here from Toronto after graduating from Oxford College. I had the good fortune to visit and live in different parts of the world growing up in a Military family. I graduated from the Certified Dental Assisting Program at UCFV in Chilliwack, BC and practiced as a Certified Dental Assistant there for many years prior to pursuing my goal of becoming a Registered Dental Hygienist. My husband, Noel and I are raising our two beautiful and rambunctious sons. I have a passion for family and travel and am always planning the next big adventure.

COURTNEY FOISY – Registered Dental Assistant – Level 2


I have been a Registered Dental Assistant at West Hill Dental for the last 2 years. I was born and raised in Cherryville BC and moved to Peace River shortly after finishing my assisting program at Okanagan College. I will soon be embarking on a trip of a life time and traveling Australia for a year. I am definitely looking forward to returning to West Hill Dental to work with the amazing staff as I am going to miss my work family a lot. I have a love for anything that has to do with the outdoors, camping, hiking, fishing or geo-caching.
