Hygienists

Nancy Gerow graduated from La Cite Collegiale in 1996 in the dental hygiene program. She is very gentle and caring while attending patient’s needs. Nothing is more important to Nancy than being able to provide patients with the highest quality care possible. Nancy is registered and in good standing with the College of Dental Hygienists of Ontario, as well as a member of The Canadian Dental hygienists Association and Ottawa Dental Hygienist’s Society.
She enjoys attending continuing education courses and reading dental hygiene journals to allow her to provide the most accurate and current information to patients. Nancy enjoys spending her free time with her family and three children.
Isabelle graduated as a Dental Hygienist in 2008 from La Cité Collégiale and has enjoyed working in the profession over the last 14 years. She made a difficult decision to leave a downtown clinic after 10years. Happy to leave the morning and evening commute behind. She truly believes there is always more to learn, and she strive to be a better Dental Hygienist daily. Isabelle knows that Lisa has left very big shoes for her to fill, and we are certain she is up for the challenge. Be sure to ask her about her dog Dyson and her love of fishing.
Michelle is a graduate of Fanshaw College with diplomas in Pre-Health Sciences and Level 2 Dental Assisting. After working as a Dental Assistant for period of time, Michelle took some time to travel while working on a cruise ship before settling in Vancouver for a few years. Continuing with her love of personal interaction with people, Michelle returned to Ottawa to attend the Canadian National Institute of Health, graduating as a Dental Hygienist in 2014. Very quickly realizing that for her, the most fulfilling part of working as a health care provider is knowing that with her knowledge and expertise, she has helped someone improve their oral health.

Michelle now lives in Blackburn Hamlet. Be sure to say hello to her and her Shepadoodle, Raven, if you see them at the dog park or jogging in the neighborhood.
