Our wonderful dental assistant Brianna has just come back from her maternity leave! Join us in giving her a warm welcome back to myORTHODONTIST!
Brianna has been with us for 8 years this coming March. She is a shining light and can always be found wearing her beautiful smile!
We had the pleasure of asking Brianna a few questions on coming back to work, parenthood, tips for patients and of course, some holiday fun!
myORTHO: Tell us about your beautiful family!
Brianna: I have two children, my son Jett is 3 and my daughter James is 1.
myORTHO: Tell us more about your new girl James!
Brianna: James is so sweet and happy-but she has a little bit of a red-headed temper. She will let you know if she doesn’t like something or she isn’t happy. Super sassy and spicy. We love her strong-willed little personality …most days.
myORTHO: What is life like being a parent of 2 kids?
Brianna: Life is a lot busier- the days fly by. I miss showering alone… but jokes aside everything is better with kids!
myORTHO: We know life is busy as a mom, but tell us what you love to do for fun.
Brianna: I love spending time with my kids, I love to do spin classes, and anything crafty.
myORTHO: What are you looking forward to this holiday season?
Brianna: The thing I’m looking forward to the most is just celebrating with my family. My son finally “understands” Santa and the reason for the season. I’m so excited to just watch them enjoy every minute of this holiday.
myORTHO: Favourite holiday movie?
Brianna: Ohhh toss up between Elf and Four Christmases!
myORTHO: Favourite holiday snack?
Brianna: Nuts and bolts!
myORTHO: Any holiday tips for patients with braces?
Brianna: Enjoy! Just be careful! It’s easy to forget you have brackets and dig into that caramel corn, but just try to remind yourself to be careful.
myORTHO: When should a child come in for their first ortho checkup?
Brianna: Ideally the age of 7 is perfect for the first appointment just to get an idea of how things are looking- and to catch any jaw “issues” while they are still young and growing.
myORTHO: What do you love most about working at myORTHODONTIST?
Brianna: The people! Patients, Doctors, and team! All the people who come and go in the office make it what it is – and it’s SO amazing to see the relationships you can build here.
