Meet the Dream Team!

Shelley – Practice Manager

My name is Shelley and I am the Practice Manager at Orthodontics At Don Mills. I moved to Toronto over 10 years ago from the little town of Banff Alberta where I spent the better part of a decade. I have to say that I am very impressed with the community feel that such a large city offers.

My journey in dentistry began as a level ll dental assistant and soon progressed to Dental Center Manager.  I am a proud member of the Ontario Dental Assistants Association, Canadian Dental Assistants Association and a staff member of the American Association of Orthodontics.

I’ve always had a passion for health care and Dentistry seemed like a great choice. I love orthodontics because I love working with people and developing the relationship with them.  It’s truly an amazing feeling see someone have the confidence to smile again.

I can’t begin to say enough about the team at Orthodontics At Don Mills. They are simply amazing people and I am privileged to be part of such a dynamic team. We want nothing more than for our patients to feel comfortable and confident when they walk into our practice. We take pride in the relationships we build and the smiles we help create are truly worth a thousand words.

Wendy – Patient Coordinator

Hi, I’m Wendy!  You can find me at the front desk greeting patients with a friendly smile and taking care of our patients’ scheduling needs. I’m so happy to help you with anything you may need and answer any question you may have!

I have been in the orthodontic field for over 8 years. Prior to this, I was a Registered Massage Therapist.  I have lived in east end of Scarborough most of my life and although I’m a Scarborough girl through and through I’m originally from the great land of Newfoundland and I’m true to my newfie roots. An interested fact about me is that my father is a Canadian icon and one of the most famous singer’s coming out of Newfoundland, A. Frank Willis. Just YouTube the song “Take me as I am” by A. Frank Willis for a sample of his work.  If you want to have some serious fun, YouTube, “I’m my own Grandpa” by A. Frank Willis and try to follow the incredible song that my grandpa wrote.   I enjoy spending time with friends and family in my spare time; playing board games, watching movies, and hiking.  My bucket list includes learning to play the guitar, taking a family trip to Hawaii, and travelling across Canada to explore our beautiful country.

I am excited to be part of the incredible team at Orthodontics at Don Mills and work with Dr. James Noble and Dr. Sandra Cassolato. What an amazing field to be in where we get to know patients and follow them in an important stage of their lives to give them confidence!  We have an amazing and friendly team at Orthodontics at Don Mills and we work hard for our patients!

One of the things I enjoy most about my career is to see how transforming a patient’s smile can change their lives. I love getting to know our patients, asking them about their day, their lives, getting to know them and watching their self confidence grow with their braces or Invisalign treatment.  Having been through orthodontic treatment myself, I can relate to all of the positive and also the challenging aspects of orthodontic treatment. We all know wax is your best friend! Wax on, wax off!  But we also know that the end result will have us smiling for the rest of our lives.

I am born and raised in Toronto and love this city!  I am also grateful for my wonderful husband who has supported me throughout my career! He makes my life brighter every day. I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and my cat Peeko!  I also love singing!  If you hear a beautiful voice singing tunes in the clinic, that’s me!  I also enjoy cottaging, fishing, gardening and I really love barbecuing and smoking delicious Italian and Greek meats on our patio.

I look foreword to seeing you all at your next orthodontic appointment! I’m so excited to be part of the Orthodontics on Don Mills team. We have a wonderful team of talented, dedicated and hardworking people who work hard to give you an amazing experience and a great result.  Thank you for this amazing opportunity to serve and I look forward to seeing your smile!
