Dental Hygiene Clinic
Meet the Team of Local Smiles RDH
Melissa graduated on the honour role from Algonquin College in 2003. She always knew she wanted to be in the health care field and considers her self one of the few lucky people who seem to love what they do. By opening her first Dental Hygiene Clinic she was fulfilling her dream of being able to offer individualized treatment to those who really need it. It is her goal to have preventive dental hygiene treatment available to everyone and thanks to the changes in legislation made in 2007 in Ontario allowing direct access to dental hygiene services and the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 and the Dental Hygiene act, 1991 we are here today living a dream!
I understand dental fear, it is a real feeling and can lead to avoidance which can lead to embarrassment, fear of pain and fear of cost, which leads to fear of taking that first step.
Let me help you overcome your barriers . Let me help you start the journey to oral health. Together we will make a plan that feels right to you!

Melissa believes children's first visits should be fun and at the childs pace. We never do what the child doesn't want to. if we only get to ride in our chair and get a prize the first couple visits that is OK because each time we visit we become a little less scary and maybe even a little more fun!

Melissa Miller RDH
Registered Dental Hygienist
Melissa is one of the few people in this world who can say she loves what she does. She enjoys meeting and forming a lasting relationship with all her clients.
She went into dental knowing she wanted to be in health care and was lucky enough to work for two of the most amazing dentist who ignited her love of continuing education and oral health.
When it was time to open her own clinic she took everything she had learned and applied it to her office. She also made the decision to run a slower paced office. She wanted to be able to take the time needed to get to know her clients and not have to rush them or herself.
In her off time you will find her and her family off camping or lazing in the back yard looking for their next adventure.
Hollie Joined our team 3 years ago and has become an amazing asset to the clinic. She is always willing to help you with any questions and concerns you may have. She also keeps things running smoothly around here.
In her off time you will find her surrounded by her children and grandchildren.
Hollie and Melissa have been "family" their whole lives, they say you shouldn't hire friends and family but there is no one else Melissa trusts with all of your needs.
You will be in caring hands from the minuet you call the office.
