Karyn was born and raised in Port Dover and currently resides in Simcoe with her husband and two children.
Karyn went to post secondary school in Brantford and Ancaster for Level II Dental Assisting and Dental Hygiene while still living in the community. She worked in several settings with awesome dentists and orthodontists who taught her the "ropes" of the dental world. After several years in Simcoe at a large dental practice, she decided to spread her inspirational wings and start her own office.
Karyn wanted to create a space where people could relax & unwind while having their teeth cleaned. The connection and conversations throughout the years has shaped the vision of the office.
The goal and focus of the business continues to evolve and Karyn is eager to continue to push forward into the future of overall health and wellness. Norfolk Dental Hygiene has a whole-body approach to oral health care which is unique to our small lakeside community.
Karyn is a proud member of "College of Dental Hygienists of Ontario", "Canadian Dental Hygienists Association", "Ontario Dental Hygienists Association" and "The American Academy of Oral Systemic Health" in the US.
Her passion and commitment to interpersonal care between health care providers is what her clients appreciate. She believes in guiding her clients to better overall health while focusing on mind, body, and soul development to help achieve optimum oral health.
“The mouth holds many secrets about the health of the body and organ systems. I'm grateful for the Dentists, specialists, ENT's, MD's, Cardiologists, Neurologists, Scientists, Osteopaths, Naturopaths and many others who are like minded and looking to reconnect systems that have historically been separated ” says Karyn.
Karyn is committed to discovering new products and services that help the public live healthy lives. Karyn is continuously updating her education, working with other health professionals, reading new research/studies and learning new techniques to improve client care at NDH.
Outside of the office, Karyn enjoys biking, taking walks, camping, travelling, adventures, trying new things, watching her children play sports, food/nutrition, and growing both spiritually and mentally. She believes, everyone is on an incredible journey and she intends to live hers to the fullest. Karyn is passionate about health and business. She feels small businesses are the cornerstone of our community and being an entrepreneur in the 21st century is dynamic and legendary.
As Norfolk Dental Hygiene moves forward into the future, Karyn is overjoyed to bring the evolution of her profession and passion to the community she loves so dearly.
