Hygienists

Alana McKinney | Brentwood Dental Centre

Alana, RDH

I’ve had the pleasure of working as a dental hygienist at Brentwood Dental Centre for 26 years now.  My oldest daughter, Shelby was 6 months old when I started at Brentwood.  Shelby is 26 years old now and my younger daughter, Taylor is 24 years old.  They have grown up into two independent, beautiful & successful young women who I am incredibly proud of.  I am also very proud of my second family – Dr. Reid & the wonderful staff at Brentwood Dental.  The staff works extremely well together and we genuinely care about each other.  I am very fortunate to work within a practice that is truly dedicated to making every dental experience as pleasant as possible.  We are all truly invested in the welfare of our patients.   And speaking of patients, I truly have the best patients imaginable.  Over the years, I have developed very close relationships with my patients and it is these relationships that make my days so fulfilling!

My name is Maria and I am part of the hygiene team at the Brentwood Dental Centre.

I have been practicing dental hygiene for 30 years. I have worked at Brentwood part time for the majority of my career as a dental hygienist while being a mom to my 4 boys.  I love the friendships and associations I enjoy here at Brentwood with our amazing patients and staff. I am committed to empowering you as we strive for better oral health and wellness.  Outside of work, I love being outdoors  whether it be gardening, walking, hiking or supporting my boys in their various athletic pursuits.

Patricia, RDH

Patricia grew up in Nova Scotia and graduated from the Dalhousie University School of Dental Hygiene in 2002. She moved to Calgary shortly after graduation and joined the Brentwood Dental Centre team in 2004. Over the years, Brentwood Dental Centre has been a second family for Patricia. She is grateful to have worked most of her hygiene career in a supportive environment with highly skilled professionals.

Patricia loves creating long lasting and trusting relationships with her patients. She enjoys helping patients improve their oral health while making them feel comfortable and safe.

Away from work, Patricia can be found spending time with her husband and 4 year old son. She also has a passion for dance and enjoys teaching ballet based exercise classes.

Hi, I am Moni. I have been a hygienist with Brentwood Dental for 15 years. It’s a wonderful place to work with the best staff! Brentwood puts preventative care and hygiene first and foremost.  With dental hygiene as a foundation, everything else works better for a road to a better self.

When I am not working, you will find me at the hockey rink or outdoors camping with my family.

Sheri, RDH, BDSc

My name is Sheri and I’ve been a full-time Dental Hygienist for Brentwood Dental Centre for 11 years (since May 2007).  I graduated from University of Alberta with a Diploma in Dental Hygiene then I continued on and completed my BDSc (Specialization in Dental Hygiene) in 2003.  Since then I have been fortunate enough to see some major advancements in the dental profession and I have met some amazing people.  I absolutely love being a dental hygienist and I am lucky to call Brentwood Dental Centre my home.

I was born in Calgary but I grew up mostly in Abbotsford, BC.  I moved back to Calgary with my family after highschool.  I am married and have 2 wonderful young kids who keep me on my toes.  I also have a middle-aged sweet little dog.

Alex was born right here in Calgary, Alberta and received her dental hygiene degree from the University of British Columbia in 2014. She has been working at Brentwood Dental Centre for over 3 years but has been a patient here since she was just 9 years old! 

Alex’s favourite part of dental hygiene is helping people find unique and personalized solutions to their dental problems. She enjoys helping people achieve their optimal oral health in ways that fit into every lifestyle. Alex also loves meeting new people and hearing their stories. 

When not at work Alex enjoys being outside, especially hiking, and hanging out with her friends, family and her horse Dax!

Cyndi, RDH

I have worked at Brentwood Dental Centre for 5 years! Currently, I work part time at BDC, and the rest of the week I am the office manager of an oral surgery office which keeps me very busy. In my free time I enjoy reading, fishing & spending time with my family and friends.

Hello! My name is Christine Nuño. I work as a Hygienist Assistant at Brentwood Dental. My job includes cleaning and sanitizing the rooms after a patient has been seen and to make sure the dental instruments are cleaned and sanitized after each patient. The atmosphere created by the amazing people of Brentwood Dental is incredible. They make everyone feel welcome and at ease. It is a great honor to work with such a wonderful team. I live in the city with my husband, Vincent and our cat, Felix. We enjoy taking walks in the park not far from us, and I can’t resist dancing whenever I hear a beat.
