Each of us at Sunnyside Dental is proud to be a member of such an amazing team.

Sunnyside’s doctors, hygienists, and support staff work together to ensure that our patients receive the best possible dental health care in the Kelowna area.

Our eclectic mix of personalities comes together in perfect balance here in our office. We genuinely like coming to work each day, and that creates a healthy and happy atmosphere that makes our patients feel welcome and well cared for.

Each member of the Sunnyside family is unique. We’d like to introduce ourselves!

In this short blog series, we’ve each answered some questions that will give you a little insight into who we really are.

This week, meet our lovely hygienist, Dirrae:
