Allison, Manager & Patient Advocate

allison

I began my career in dentistry as an assistant where I learned a lot about dental health and how different procedures are completed. The knowledge I gained in my time as an assistant has only helped me excel at the administration side of dentistry.

My role in the office is to make sure patients receive the best possible treatment and service. I am the bridge between the clinical staff, administrators, dentists and patients. As well as an insurance expert for complicated treatments. I am always available by phone or email for any feedback, questions, concerns and of-course complains. I am always available for emergencies outside office hours. I can be reached at 613-979-7595 or mgr@sarandental.ca.

Not only do I understand the steps in the process to complete your recommended treatment plan, but also how to use your insurance to the best of it’s ability so there is minimal cost to you. I value all of my patients and always have time to explain things in more detail and to discuss pros and cons of any situation. I treat my patients like I would a best friend. I love to get to know you in the time we have before the appointment and it is my goal to make sure you leave our office completely satisfied and looking forward to your next visit.

She has a great love of people, and is always willing to help with any questions or concerns that you may have and be a sympathetic ear. In her spare time, Kayla enjoys reading, baking, and spending time with her twin daughters, husband, and animals.
