Dorothy Kabala | Office Administration
I am a proud member of Dr. Jivan’s dental team, passionately helping dentists for over 15 years.
My commitment to excellence is to provide patients with administrative assistance. The foundation of my skills comes from countless hours of continuing education and training programs. My goals are to continue to grow both professionally and personally to continuously exceed expectations by providing a warm, inviting environment and exceptional customer service to all of our patients.
In my free time, I enjoy golfing, hiking and spending time with my son.
I came to Canada with my family 17 years ago from Ukraine where I graduated from medical school as an obstetrician nurse. My professional training in Canada includes the International School –Dental Assistant program and George Brown College for Dental Radiology. In 2000, I started to work at Dr. Jivan’s dental office as a full time Dental Assistant where the friendly atmosphere, amazing staff, cleanness and state of art equipment nurtured my love for dentistry.
Six years later I decided to become a Registered Dental Hygienist and studied at Kent Dental College. I was very happy when in May 2011 Dr. Jivan offered me a full-time position as a Dental Hygienist. I am always improving my skills and knowledge and take continue education courses each year in periodontics, dental lasers and Invisalign to name a few. In my personal life I love to travel, enjoy dancing and reading. As of late lately I started to play tennis and do stretching exercise.
Cecilia has more than 11 years experience as a certified dental assistant (level II), and is a highly skilled dental professional who possess a diverse set of knowledge. She enjoys working collaboratively with all members of the oral healthcare team. She will ensure that the office is a safe and healthy workplace.
Some of the things she likes to do on her free time are reading, listening to music, dancing and spending time with her dog.
Katherine Deslate | Certified Dental Assistant | Level II
I graduated from CDI College for Dental Assisting level I in 2007 and acquired my level II diploma from Toronto College of Dental Hygiene and Auxiliaries in 2012. I have been a part of Dr. Jivan’s warm and friendly staff since November 2016 where I continue to grow and learn to become an effective dental assistant. I have a wide experience assisting in all kids of dental procedures such as fillings, crown and bridges, implants, bone grafts, gum grafts, root canal treatment, laser, to name a few.
I work hard when I’m at work but when I’m not, I love to relax by watching movies, going out with friends, music festivals, pool bars, checking out new restaurants, rock climbing and just strolling around downtown.
