Santhiya came to Canada in September 2016 for postgraduate work in level 2 dental assisting. Before her graduation from George Brown, Santhiya met Dr. Montague and Dr. Mangat and realized she would love to be part of the Word of Mouth Dentistry team. The doctors agreed and Santhiya took over as Dr. Montague’s assistant in July.

At the office, Santhiya’s most important duty as a dental assistant is to make her patients feel comfortable throughout their visit in the office. She also enjoys being part of the team because each day allows time to work on new technical and life skills. In Santhiya’s words: “The mere presence of being in the office makes me feel home, thanks to my colleagues for their support.” Santhiya also loves travelling, reading histories, physical activities, spending time with friends.
