Meet the Team
My name is Lisa Hilgersom. I have a BSc with a major in biology and a minor in psychology and religion. I went on to become a graduate from the University of Manitoba with a diploma in dental hygiene.
After returning home to Edmonton to work, I then had the opportunity to come out to the Okanagan in 1994.
I then married my husband and have 3 beautiful daughters. I love being a wife, mom, cook, chauffeur, and sideline coach. My kids are active in school and local sports teams. We are blessed to be raising them in the awesome town of Summerland.
I now work at one of the most progressive health conscience practices in the Okanagan, Summerland Dental. I have enjoyed coming to work for the last 16 years. I work with some amazing people, and I have made many human connections with our patients. Smiles make my day.
