Zara, Registered Dental Hygienist
Zara is a Registered Dental Hygienist with over fifteen years of experience in the dental field. She started her dental career as a Certified Dental Assistant in Nanaimo where she was born and raised. Her and her husband moved to Vancouver in 2002 and a few years later she decided to continue her dental education and was accepted into the well-respected dental hygiene program at Vancouver Community College, where she graduated with honors in 2009. Zara loves learning and so has continued her dental hygiene education at UBC, where she will graduate with a degree in dental science in May 2014. Although she has received a number of awards in clinical and academic excellence, she is most proud of the compliments she receives from her patients, who note that she is easy going, gentle yet thorough and they are able to relax under her care. Zara can be heard laughing with her patients often and believes that an appointment with your hygienist can actually be fun! When she’s not having fun at work she’s having fun at home chasing her active 1 and 3 year olds around the house-which she believes really is the best exercise you can get! They can often be seen at the parks around Burke Mountain or at the community centre swimming. She also loves to spend time with her large family on the Island, and with her four siblings living over there she is on the ferry quite often!
