Kanata Dental Staff


Dental Hygienist Team

Jennifer - Kanata Dentistry



I have been a dental hygienist for nineteen years and have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Karamanokian and Dr. Lau since 2007. Attending dental education courses regularly throughout the year allows me to stay current in the dental field and share up-to-date information with my clients. 

I am a busy mom with two children. In my spare time, I enjoy wathing them in their various sporting activities.

Lisa - Kanata Dentistry



I joined Kanata Lakes Dental Centre in 2010 as a dental hygienist. Attending regular continuing education courses helps to keep me up-to-date and improve my dental hygiene skills. 

I enjoy educating my clients on the importance of optimal oral hygiene in correlation to their overall well-being. In my spare time, I enjoy keeping active and travelling.

Bessie - Dentistry Kanata



After graduating in 2000 from the Dental Hygiene program at Algonquin College, I've had the privilege of working with Dr. Karamanokian and Dr. John Lau at the Kanata Lakes Dental Centre. 

I have enjoyed seeing all of our clients over the past years, providing hygiene care that meets their individual needs.

Michelle - Kanata Dentistry



I graduated from the Dental Hygiene program at La Cité Collégiale 20 years ago and have been working at Kanata Lakes Dental Centre since 2004. I am committed to providing excellent care and I always try to make my clients feel at ease during their visit. I regularly attend continuing education courses to keep up with new technology. I am dedicated to my practice and enjoy making a difference in my clients' oral hygiene routine. 

In my free time I enjoy running, skiing, travelling and spending time with my four children.

Tamantha - Kanata Dentistry



In 2002, I graduated from Algonquin College with a diploma in Dental Hygiene and have been working in the dental field ever since. I believe that oral health impacts general daily health and prevention is the key to a healthy lifestyle.

Throughout the summer I enjoy golfing and kayaking, and in the winter I spend time with friends and family skiing and snowmobiling.

Jenna - Kanata Dentisry


I grew up in the Ottawa area and graduated from Canadian National Institute of Health and have been a member of Kanata Lakes Dental Centre since 2014. 

I enjoy being a part of the KLDC team and providing optimum care to my clients. In my spare time I like to spend time with my husband and family.

Andrea - Kanata Dentistry



Originally from Montreal, my husband and I are happy to call Ottawa home, and are enjoying raising our young daughter.

After specializing in Restorative Dentistry at Algonquin College in 2002, I taught the clinical Dental Assisting and Dental Hygiene programs for 7 years before settling into private practice. 

I appreciate the progressive philosophy of Kanata Lakes Dental Centre as it offers individualized dental hygiene treatments, such as laser therapy for patients with deeper gum pockets.
