Meet the Team
Britta is a Dental Hygiene Practitioner who graduated with honours from Toronto College of Dental Hygiene and Auxiliaries in 2010. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Applied Sciences with Minors in Kinesiology and Gerontology and a certificate in Health and Fitness from Simon Fraser University.
Britta was raised in Vancouver and has worked throughout the province delivering oral hygiene care both in clinical and public health settings. Prior to moving to Summerland in April of 2019, she was responsible for the coordination of a preventive dentistry program on behalf of First Nation communities across BC.
Britta has a passion for excellence in dental hygiene care and education. Her focus is on the mouth-body-health connection, ensuring that her patients receive the tools they need to live optimally and thrive in good oral health. She continues to advance her knowledge with up-to-date research and continued learning. Britta takes pride in working with a team at Summerland Dental Centre that shows relentless commitment to knowledge, integrity, and excellence.
Britta is delighted to call Summerland home with her husband Peter, and their two adopted fur babies, Lucky, their Husky-Shepherd cross, and Scoop, their cat. When not working, Britta trains as a competitive powerlifter and enjoys walking the many trails that Summerland has to offer. Both Britta and Peter love to ski, cook and are in the process of learning to garden (any tips welcome!).
