Whitney Vandervalk, Registered Dental Hygienist
I was raised in Lethbridge, Alberta before deciding to move to Calgary to attend Bow Valley College and receive my Dental Business Assistant Certificate. After managing a clinic for two years, I decided to move to Ottawa, Ontario to pursue my dream of becoming a dental hygienist. I graduated with honors in 2011 and received my Registered Dental Hygiene Diploma. With over 8 years in the dental field I am proud to open up my own dental hygiene clinic and provide back to my community and hometown of Lethbridge, Alberta.
