Angela has been with the practice since 2001, after graduating from the Certified Dental Assistant program at Camosun College. Since working with Dr. Gakhal she's had the opportunity to continue her education with courses on implants, IV conscious sedation and Invisalign; she is currently studying for the Dental Anaesthesia Assistant National Certification Exam.
Angela is married and has a five year old daughter and one year old son. In her spare time she enjoys being with her family, crocheting and reading--though it takes much, much longer to finish a book with two young ones!
When she is not at the office she can usually be found at one of the many local parks with her husband and children.

Eryn has a degree in Physical Geography and another in Forest Operations from the University of British Columbia. After being frustrated with several layoffs she decided to pursue something more stable and was pointed in the direction of Dental Hygiene. She graduated with a Diploma in Dental
Hygiene from Vancouver Commuity College in 2004. While she is primarily hygienist, you may also find her helping out at reception, administering a local anesthetic, hanging pictures, taking pictures or very rarely assisting. Eryn currently holds her Canadian Dental Assistants Anaesthesia Certification, so you will find her monitoring patients vitals when they are under IV sedation. When not at the office. Eryn enjoys spending time with her wonderful daughters, running, cycling, swimming and the great outdoors.
