Receptionist and Treatment Co-ordinator
I have been working with Dr. Ziedenberg since he first opened his practice many years ago! I am so pleased to be a part of this dental team, and I am happy to be able to assist our patients and their parents. I enjoy working with the team and our referring dental practices to create the most enjoyable and positive orthodontic experience for all of our patients. Coming to work each day and knowing that I’m doing something I truly love is the most rewarding feeling. I’m always available for my patients when they have questions, and I make sure that I am always wearing my biggest smile!!
My wonderful, caring husband is named Shimmy. He is the love of my life – along with our trusty dog, Rocky. I grew up in North York, and come from a great family of three brothers and one sister. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my three nieces and three nephews!
Registered Orthodontic Dental Hygienist
I have worked as a registered dental hygienist since 1997, in both orthodontics and general dentistry – I love working around smiles! It’s wonderful being a part of Dr. Ziedenberg’s team, and I truly enjoy working with all of our great patients. Our team is fun loving, high spirited, and we all enjoy working together. I feel good knowing that I am able to help provide the best quality in orthodontic care for all of our patients. My number one priority is to make all patients feel comfortable and (even have a bit of fun) at each visit.
In my spare time, I love to travel – I’ve been to Australia twice in the last two years and hope to get to South Africa soon. Originally, I am from Belleville, Ontario, but attended university in Portland, Maine and lived in the U.S. for eight years before moving to Toronto. In the summertime, I love spending time at my family’s cottage on Georgian Bay. I also enjoy riding my bike to work, being active outdoors, reading, and spending time with family, friends and my English Cocker Spaniel “Beatrix”.
Registered Orthodontic Dental Hygienist
My name is Siobhan (pronounced “shivonne”) and I graduated with honours from George Brown College’s Dental Hygiene program in 2006. After graduation, I was immediately drawn to the specialty of orthodontics and have been working in this field ever since. It is very rewarding to participate in creating healthy smiles and seeing the confidence that goes along with those smiles! Oral health is a passion of mine and and I am continuing my education through the University of British Columbia working towards a Bachelor of Dental Science.
When I’m not in the office or studying I love to be outdoors: camping and hiking in the summer, cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter. I love to read, paint, travel – my best trips so far have been backpacking through Europe and touring China. I am pleased to be a part of Dr. Ziedenberg’s dental team and am happy to be of assistance to our patients and parents.
Certified Level II Dental Assistant
I am a Level II Certified Dental Assistant and I am very excited to be working with such a great team at Ziedenberg Orthodontics. I graduated from Durham College and have had the privilege of working in many different settings like the Dominican Republic, in Saskatchewan and other private clinics around the GTA. My favourite part of orthodontics is watching the progress of each patient’s smile. It is very rewarding to see the positive transformations that come with orthodontic treatment. I myself am currently going through orthodontic treatment. I truly understand the impact of a great smile and support all of our patients through the process.
I am originally from the Caribbean and love travelling back home. I currently live in Toronto, which has so many great things to offer. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, watching movies, baking, knitting, and spending time outdoors and catching baseball games in the summer.
Cool, fun, and very down to earth… that’s what they say about me! I have been working in the health field for over 34 years. I have a diverse background between orthodontics, general dentistry, medical secretary, administrative, and managerial experience. I enjoy working in orthodontics because I am able to build long-term relationships with our patients. It’s my goal to ensure that our patients are comfortable and relaxed, and have an enjoyable time in our practice. In this practice, our team goes the extra mile to make sure that your time spent with us is worthwhile. I look forward to meeting and helping our patients during their journey toward a healthy, perfect smile.
I am a free-spirited, open-minded, caring individual! I love music, dancing, the theater, and always enjoy a good laugh! I am a proud mother of two boys, and when I’m not at the practice, I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends. Working out and staying fit is an important part of my life. I encourage a daily lifestyle of maintaining healthy eating and exercising. My leisure activities include traveling, volunteering, enjoying the great outdoors, and living an active life!
Registered Orthodontic Dental Hygienist
Hi my name is Jane and I am a Registered Orthodontic Dental Hygienist. I graduated from George Brown College in 1980 and have been practicing in orthodontics since 1985. I am an active member of the Orthodontic Dental Hygiene study club and strive to stay current by attending professional seminars.
I am very excited to be a part of such a dynamic and progressive practice which truly shares the same values as I do. I am committed to providing the highest quality of care to all our patients in a positive and conscientious manner. It is such a pleasure to work with Dr. Ziedenberg because he is equipped with the latest knowledge, technology and techniques which enable him to create healthy and beautiful smiles for all his patients.
When I am not working- I am a loving wife and mother of two wonderful boys. I love to practice yoga and wellness and bring its’ positive benefits to everyone I connect with. I also enjoy spending time with my family, spinning, traveling and cooking!
Certified Dental Assistant
I have been a certified dental assistant in orthodontics for 30 years. I am thrilled to be part of Dr. Ziedenberg’s team. I really enjoy working with all the patients we have, and I strive to give them the best orthodontic care possible. We all love to laugh at this practice, and we like doing what we can to make our patients feel comfortable and happy. I personally love helping our patients achieve their healthy smiles, and interacting with our young patients each day.
I am originally from Scarborough, and presently reside in Whitby. I grew up the youngest and only girl in a family with five older brothers! Now, I have three wonderful kids of my own, Jenna, Matthew, and James, and an awesome husband, named Jeff. In my free time I enjoy gardening, reading, watching movies, playing sports with my children, and playing with our dog, Roxi.
My name is Carol and I became a dental hygienist after a career as a graphic designer. I missed the one-on-one interactions and love to make patients smile! After graduating with honours, and working as a general hygienist for a year, I was fortunate enough to find myself in orthodontics and appreciate the intricacies and variety that it brings. One of the best things in orthodontics is the before and after pictures!
After growing up in Markham and Scarborough, I moved midtown and now reside in Etobicoke with my husband, daughter and two cats. During my down time, I enjoy watching movies and catching up on TV shows. I also love traveling – one of my favourite trips was to Japan specifically in Nara where you can freely feed and pet many deer, and Toyko where it is very busy yet so clean and the food is amazing.
Whenever possible I like to eat healthy and would like to learn more about cooking.
