Hi, my name is Shane; I use he/him/his pronouns and I am the newest Aqua Dental Wellness team member!

To tell you a little about myself, I have an absolute love for cats, and have three cuddly furballs myself!
In my spare time, I enjoy reading, drawing, and painting.

Previous to pursuing Dental Assisting and graduating at RRC with honours, I was a sterilization technician at a dental clinic for 6 years. Since I enjoyed being in the dental field so much, I decided to further my education and became an RDA!
