Rhonda – Registered Dental Assistant Level II
Member of the CADA (College of Alberta Dental Assistants)
I was born in Alberta and I have lived most of my life in Millet. I graduated from NAIT (Edmonton) in 1990 and have worked with Dr. Sturmay for the last 25 years.
I absolutely love the patients that come to our office, from the youngest to the oldest. I learn something new from them everyday. Whether it’s a new joke or how to treat a sunburn with vinegar. I feel I have a most rewarding and satisfying career.
When I’m not working with our fabulous team I can usually be found at home enjoying time with my family.
