Melinda Runcel, Dental Assistant
Melinda graduated from LCCTC in 2010 with her Dental Assisting Certificate. Most recently, she graduated from YTI, from the Expanded Functions Dental Assistant program. She choose the dental field because like many others she has dental anxiety and understands, first hand, what it takes for a person to walk through that door. Her passion is to walk with the patient through every step of their procedure and comforting them with patience, education and of course a warm smile. She makes patients feel welcome and ensures to them she will be there every step of the way. Nothing is more rewarding to her than having a patient smile as they leave the office, knowing they conquered all their objectives because of her and the team! Melinda has been practicing in dentistry for 8 years. She loves what she does and strives to make her patients happy by giving them the beautiful smile they deserve. Melinda is kind, caring and will be your biggest cheerleader! Outside of the office she enjoys to spend time with beautiful daughter.
