Meet our Dental Assistants
A recent addition to the Millennium Dental team, Hina has been with Millennium Dental for just over two years. She chose dentistry as her profession because of the flexible working schedule and opportunities it provides to assist patients on a regular basis.
Hina loves staying on top of the latest trends and developments in the industry, and enjoys the collaborative working environment at the office.
In her free time, she likes travelling, watching movies, and reading.
Lyndsey joined Millennium Dental at the beginning of her dental career eight years ago, and never looked back.
Lyndsey enjoys the fast working pace of the office and the strong friendships she has formed with staff members over the years. As with all of our staff members, she feels that it’s the patients who make her job rewarding, and she looks forward to seeing and interacting with them every day.
In the summer, Lyndsey loves to go hiking, and has been known to indulge in the occasional shopping trip or two.
Glenda began working in dentistry twelve years ago, right here at Millennium Dental. She chose the profession because, while she always enjoyed interacting with people in general, she found working directly with patients to be particularly rewarding.
When patients come in who are new to the clinic, or who are concerned about or unsure of a procedure, Glenda has a knack for putting them at ease. She has an exceptional patient care personality, and excels at making patients feel as calm and relaxed as possible during their appointments.
Glenda likes the friendly, supportive culture at work. In her spare time, she enjoys shopping with her daughter, camping with her family, and watching her son play basketball.
Kelly has been with Millennium Dental for over two years, but has worked in dentistry for over 10 years and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the practice.
She is a people person who finds patient interaction to be the highlight of her day. She loves being on the front lines with her patients every day and works hard to establish a strong rapport with them.
Kelly appreciates the flexible work schedule and fun working environment at the office. When she’s not acting as her son’s personal chauffeur, she enjoys working out at the gym and spending time in her garden.
Meet our Dental Hygienists
Mark worked with Dr. Lakhani for 15 years before joining the Millennium Dental team six years ago. With over 20 years’ experience in the industry, he brings a rich background and diverse skill set to the practice.
Mark decided to go into dentistry, he claims, because the position of Prime Minister was already filled. Although a life of politics wasn’t in the cards for him, he found a career in dentistry to a great alternative. In addition to working with his patients, he enjoys collaborating with his friendly, supportive, and extremely knowledgeable co-workers.
In his spare time, Mark likes to explore his musical side, and is an accomplished guitarist and keyboardist. He also likes to indulge his inner athlete, riding motor cycles and street bikes whenever he gets the chance. In another life, Mark raced dirt bikes on a competitive level and lived to tell the tale.
Sommer began as our relief hygienist in 2009, and joined Millennium Dental as a full-time hygienist five years ago. She has worked in the dental industry, however, for over 14 years.
From the age of 10, Sommer dreamed of becoming a dental hygienist. She’d always had great dental experiences as a child, and thought it would be a challenging and rewarding career.
Sommer loves working with such a large and specialized team and appreciates the team’s commitment to delivering superior service. Above all, it’s the patients who make her job rewarding. Seeing a patient leave feeling happy with their smile is often the highlight of her day.
In her spare time, Sommer enjoys spending time with her friends and family. She also has a bit of the travel bug, and loves to go off on a new adventure whenever the opportunity arises.
Christa has been with Millennium Dental for 15 years and in the field of dentistry for 16 years. She decided early on that she wanted a career in dentistry because she wanted to help people maintain their oral health. She is motivated by a desire to help patients lead healthier lives and loves educating them on how best to care for their teeth and gums.
One of the things she likes most about Millennium Dental is its progressive approach to dentistry. Doctors and staff work hard to stay on top of the latest procedures and technologies, allowing them to offer patients specialized services and the very latest in dental treatments.
Christa is a fitness buff, and can often be found playing golf or skiing in her spare time. She is also an avid reader, and appreciates few things more than finding time to settle down with a good book.
Meet our Dental Administrators
Corinne recently joined Millennium Dental, hoping to make a difference in a progressive office that was open to new ideas. With over 20 years in the industry, she has a strong sense of what it takes to run a successful practice. She enjoys learning about a new office culture, and has a particular interest in motivating teams to provide the best dentistry possible by staying focused and positive.
Corinne became interested in health and dentistry at an early age, recognizing the value of a person’s smile, and seeing how it affects everything about them. She has a patient-centered approach to office management, and enjoys engaging with patients and finding ways to improve their experience.
She is an avid reader and enjoys watching all types of sports. She also loves travelling and spending time with her family.
Donna has been in the dental industry for over 25 years, and became part of the Millennium Dental team six years ago. She chose the profession, in part, because she was fascinated by how technology can be used to dramatically change the appearance of a person’s smile. Beyond the physical changes, Donna is interested in the short and long-term implications of these changes on a person’s self-esteem and wellbeing.
Donna loves working the staff and doctors at Millennium Dental, and enjoys seeing her patients’ satisfaction with the health and appearance of their smiles.
In her spare time, you can find her planning out her next trip or enjoying the day on the golf course.
Danee joined us in 2011, the same year Dr. Lakhani merged his practice with Millennium Dental. Having worked with Dr. Lakhani in the past, she was familiar with his progressive, holistic approach to dentistry and felt that moving with him to Millennium Dental would be an excellent career opportunity.
Danee has worked in the field dentistry for over 15 years, and was inspired to join the profession by her sister – who worked as an RDA for 35 years and loved it. One of most enjoyable aspects of her work is seeing patients regularly, and she looks forward to getting to know each of them on a personal level.
She is a huge Edmonton Oilers fan (which we won’t hold against her) and loves watching games whenever she can. She is also extremely handy, and enjoys doing crafts and building and fixing things in her spare time.
