Sara graduated from the Dental Assisting program at Algonquin College in 2008 and then went on to receive her Registered Dental Hygienist diploma in 2012. Sara’s role as a dental hygienist is to provide excellent preventative oral care and to assist her patients in developing effective at home care programs to maintain good oral health. Seeing the happy, healthy smiles on her patients faces at the end of their appointments is what drives Sara’s passion in dentistry. She strives to provide gentle, yet thorough care and is committed to ensuring comfort throughout your dental experience. When she is not teaching her patients how to floss, Sara enjoys spending time with her family, staying active and spending time outdoors.

NATASHA CROCKER

Clinic Manager

Natasha has worked as an administrator in the dental field for the last 13 years. Having that knowledge and experience, as well as being a bit of a nervous patient herself, she knows how important it is for patients to feel comfortable, safe and understood when visiting the dental office. She not only handles the administrative day to day running of our office but she is also ready to help guide you through your treatment process. Whether it is answering questions you may have about appointments, insurance coverage, or concerns you may have about the various treatments performed, she is here for you! Although she loves her job at Dr. Paul Dental, her free time is all about being with her family (including her fur baby Lincoln) and enjoying the great outdoors. She is also an active member and treasurer of the Cornwall Rowing Club.
