Meet the Team

We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice.

We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.


Office Manager

I began my career in dentistry in 1993 as a receptionist and financial coordinator. I came from a banking background as middle management, and that experience helped me advance to treatment and financial coordinator. Now, as our office manager, I support Dr. Ponikvar and team, and always look for new and tried and true ideas to help the practice run more effectively and efficiently. I enjoy working in orthodontics—there is nothing quite like seeing the beautiful smiles when our patients complete their treatment.

When I’m not at work, I love spending time with my family and working in my garden.



New Patient Coordinator



Dental Hygienist

I began my career in dentistry in 2005 as a dental assistant. After continuing my education in Kingston, I became a dental hygienist. Now working in orthodontics, I utilize all my knowledge to provide the most comfortable care. Working with kids is a lot of fun. They always have something interesting to say or are doing activities at school. I love hearing all about everything that makes them smile!

Outside of work, I enjoy spending my time with my friends and family, playing guitar, and traveling.




Sterilization Technician

I recently joined the Ponikvar Orthodontic team after successfully completing the WHMIS and Public Health Ontario reprocessing moduels. I ensure that all our equipment and instruments are reprocessed in accordance with the most recent health and safety guidelines.


Treatment Coordinator/CDA II

I earned my Level II Dental Assistant certification from Algonquin College in 2004 and joined Ponikvar Orthodontics in 2008. I meet with patients and parents for their first visit with our office and help guide them through the orthodontic process. I love seeing the excitement in patients when they hear what our office can do for them. Plus, our team is the best! We all work together collaboratively to achieve the best possible results for each and every patient.
