Dawn is the Certified Dental Assistant (CDA) Team Leader at Clayburn Dental. The CDA’s have a crucial role at our dental clinic in Abbotsford, maintaining a safe, clean and effective environment in the treatment room and assisting our dentist team during a variety of treatment procedures.
Dawn is especially great at helping our patients feel comfortable before, during and after dental treatment – we don’t know what we’d do without her!
Without further ado, let’s get to know Dawn better!
Who is your hero and why?
“My parents. They are amazing, and I’m so glad they brought me up the way they did. My mom went through a lot while my brother and I were growing up. She held it together and we always had fun. My dad was just as amazing. He was always working hard so we could do the things we did and have the fun we had. Thanks Mom and Dad, I wouldn’t be the woman I am today if it wasn’t for you both.”
What are your hobbies and what do you enjoy most about them?
“Scrapbooking. It relaxes me and lets me relive the memories. I also enjoy spending time with my husband and our dogs and the joy they bring me. Finally, watching Canucks (though there’s not much joy in them right now!).”
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
“Riveria Maya in Mexico. We’re beginning to plan our annual vacation there now!”
What is your favourite type of food?
“Chinese or Mexican.”
What celebrity would you like to meet? What would you ask them?
“Cesar Milan. I would ask him for help with my dog who doesn’t like to be groomed. I am serious.”
What is your favourite thing about working at Clayburn Dental?
“The staff. I love them all, they are a great group. And the flexibility we have for taking time off.”
