Born and raised north of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, Michelle was introduced to dentistry as a career choice by a family friend. Piqued by the notion of an independent profession that blended science and creativity, she attended dental school at the University of Saskatchewan. Since graduating in 1995, Michelle has made her home in Calgary.
Our team-based services have enabled Michelle to develop enduring relationships with patients and colleagues at Westpointe Dental Centre, where she has practiced since 2003. She welcomes new patients with enthusiasm and appreciates the trust afforded her when serving whole generations of families.
In addition to her dedication to dentistry, Michelle is an avid painter and is a member of Primed Art Collective, shares a studio at Artpoint Galleries and actively volunteers in Calgary’s not-for-profit arts sector.

I was born and raised in Calgary, and I’m very proud to be Albertan. I graduated from the University of Calgary with a Bachelor of Science and then jumped on a plane to Sydney, Australia where I completed my Dental Degree at the University of Sydney.
My goal at Westpointe Dental Image Centre is to provide thorough individualized treatment and education in order for my patients to maintain the best oral health possible.
In my spare time, I like to play hockey, tennis, golf and I’m always keen to throw some rocks at the local curling rink.
Hope to see you soon!
