Cat S.

Cat S.

Office Manager

I have a background in emergency nursing, many years of managerial/administrative experience, including in an oral maxillofacial surgical office. All combined, it enables me to provide the best possible experience in patient care! I truly believe in creating meaningful relationships with each of our patients to give them peace of mind, comfort and trust from start to finish.

I am a mother of three boys: 17, 4 and a one-year-old that keeps me busy when not working at the clinic. I am also a fur mama to my 12-year-old dog and 2-year-old cat. In my spare time, I try to practice “self-care” and my hobbies of caring for my plants/gardening, and I have just completed my eyelash extension course.

Dental Receptionist/Administrator

I received my Dental Reception Coordinator certificate in January of 2013 from Vancouver Community College and started working at Lonsdale Dental Centre that summer. I enjoy being a valuable member of the team that strives to make each patients’ experience a positive one. Providing great customer service has always been my goal, and I enjoy each interaction I have with patients.
I was born and raised in North Vancouver and currently live here with my boyfriend and dog. Helping others has always been a strong passion of mine. I also enjoy travelling and experiencing different cultures.

Luella U.

Luella U.

Registered Dental Hygienist

After graduating from the Hygiene program at Vancouver Community College in 2013, I worked at Metroplex Dental (Lonsdale’s sister clinic in Burnaby). In 2015, I started splitting my time between the two clinics.

Utilizing my experience and background in Psychology & retail, I am focused on providing Lonsdale’s patients with individualized dental hygiene care and motivating them to improve or maintain their oral health comfortably and professionally.

I am so lucky to be returning to work at Lonsdale Dental Center after my year-long maternity leave. I love spending time with my soon-to-be husband and our three-year-old son in my downtime, hitting parks, malls, and everywhere in between with my two guys.

Parth V.

Parth V.

Registered Dental Hygienist

I selected Dental Hygiene field because I was interested in oral health and the dental field. I feel proud, not only helping people achieve their oral health goals, but also educating them regarding their oral hygiene. I am originally from India and moved to Canada in 2013. I studied in Ontario but moved to BC in 2015 and have been loving every moment. I have been practicing dental hygiene since 2015 and want to keep achieving more in this rewarding career.

I like to keep myself in touch with continuing education and to provide better care for everyone that i treat in the dental chair. I believe every persons mouth is different and should be treated accordingly.

In my leisure time I like cooking, hiking and of course travelling.
