Meet the Team

My team loves sharing smiles! Each team member is always looking for opportunities to smile, or to bring a smile to another’s face. They are kind, caring, skilled, and dedicated to providing the best orthodontic experience, from your initial consultation to finished, perfect smile!

Our assistants are all registered dental assistants, having completed orthodontic module training. They work diligently to straighten teeth and correct bites, shaping beautiful smiles and sharing laughter with our patient family.

Every member of the team loves celebrating successes, where it is a great before-and-after story or seeing a patient improve their oral hygiene. They are here to encourage, educate, and support you during your orthodontic journey — and we all look forward to celebrating the incredible new smile you will achieve!

Diane

Office Manager (and Dr. Boutin’s Spouse)

It is a pleasure to work with this incredible team: Each person is kind, gentle, and giving. They are devoted to each patient’s orthodontic experience and strive to make treatment a wonderful, laughter-filled time!

As for the doctor, you might call me biased, but I have seen over the years the very thoughtful way he practices his craft. He is mindful to select only proven, conservative treatment advancements, and designs each patient’s care around the individual. This means efficient and comfortable care, and incredible finished smiles.

I work in the background of the practice, to make sure everything is running smoothly. This allows the rest of the staff to focus on what’s important: our patients and their families!

I have raised four children – three sons and one daughter — with Dr. Boutin. They are all adults, making their mark on the world, and we couldn’t be more proud. We also have two fur babies: Kirby the cat and Zoey the dog.

I have always been very involved in the Francophone community, in Calgary and provincially, in many different capacities. Dr. Boutin and I have just joined a Francophone choir: it is out of our comfort zone but we’re enjoying the challenge of using our brains in a very different way! I play badminton and love to scrapbook, too.

Reception:

Brenda

Financial Coordinator

Besides helping to manage a great administrative team, my top priority is to help patients with their financial arrangements. I also help with all aspects of the front desk. I love the relationships we build with our patients! I have enjoyed watching many grow up, and it is thrilling when I get to see them back in the office with their own children!

Dr. Boutin is absolutely the BEST orthodontist! The beautiful smiles he creates are amazing! I love seeing the confidence their new smiles give to our patients! We have a great team where everyone is always willing to help one another out.

Away from work, I like to spend time with family and friends, do crossword puzzles, take pastry and cooking classes, participate in league bowling during the winter, and walk on Calgary’s fantastic walking trails during the summer.

Adrienne

Scheduling Coordinator (Part-time)

I enjoy being part of a remarkable team: Everyone is diligent and industrious, but we still have fun. Our patients and families respond to the upbeat atmosphere and quickly join in with the laughter. Seeing people happy with their new smiles is always cause to celebrate!

I mainly schedule visits for our patients: finding times that fit with their busy lives and aren’t disruptive to their other activities. I also confirm those appointments and adjust the schedule as needed.

My husband and I have been married since 2011. We have a sweet pup named Smokey. I love nature, and while I prefer to holiday on a sunny beach, I can easily settle for the beautiful mountains close by!

Shawn

Scheduling Coordinator

I have a wealth of experience in the dental field, from working as an orthodontic dental assistant for 8 years and as a registered dental assistant in a general practice for another 8 years. I have now been working in dental administration since 2014 and joined the orthodontic practice of Dr. Boutin in June 2020. I am honored to work with a group of like-minded dental professionals who are knowledgeable in their field.

As a scheduling coordinator, I assist patients with booking their appointments and answering questions about our treatment and services. I love getting to know our patients – we have the unique opportunity to watch them grow-up as the progress through their treatment. It is quite rewarding to be part of our patients’ orthodontic journey.

Outside of the office, I spend most of my free time watching my two daughters play elite-level basketball in Canada and the United States. My family also enjoys spending time camping on the weekends!

Dominie

Administrative Assistant

I enjoy working with the team here at Dr. Boutin’s office, everyone is so kind and helpful and great at what they do! My favorite part of my job is meeting all our wonderful patients and their families!

As an administrative assistant, it’s my job to meet patients at the door and make sure all of their intake paperwork is as it should be. I also help with answering phones and whatever other administrative tasks are needed.

Outside of the office, I love spending time with my dog Zoey and cat Kirby. Seeing as I am a music student, I spend a lot of time practicing my opera singing. I also love doing all things artistic, like drawing and painting!

Orthodontic Assistants:

Anna

Registered Dental Assistant (Level II with orthodontic module)

I joined Dr. Boutin’s team in 1997 and work as an orthodontic assistant and part-time treatment coordinator. Our team is made up of a great group of ladies who work hard and love their jobs. Everyone is so friendly and loves to see our patients’ smiles!

Personally, I enjoy seeing how happy our patients are after they are done with treatment. It’s wonderful to get to know our patients and watch the younger ones grow up.

I have two daughters who are both away in university and they love it. I am an empty nester! I love warm vacations, reading, listening to live music, exploring downtown, and laughing with my daughters when they come home to visit.

Donna

Registered Dental Assistant (Level II with orthodontic module) and Treatment Coordinator

I am a jack-of-all-trades in our office and I love it! I find dental assisting very diverse in nature and it keeps me engaged throughout the day. I especially love seeing a patient get the smile of their dreams and how it lights up their face, and knowing how this will positively affect their life.

Dr. Boutin is a fantastic orthodontist to work for and with! He genuinely cares about the orthodontic outcome and experience for every single patient, as well as the happiness of his staff. Speaking of them, I really enjoy all my coworkers; we have a lot of fun every day and love to laugh a lot!

I am happily married to my husband of more than 30 years. We both enjoy camping in our trailer as many nights as humanly possible in our spring/summer/fall seasons. We also enjoy dirt biking on mountain trails taking in the beautiful scenery, and I’ve practiced yoga for 20 years!

Liz

Registered Dental Assistant (Level II with orthodontic module) and Professional Relations Coordinator

I love helping our patients achieve their BEST smile and creating a fun environment for everyone who comes here. In addition to assisting Dr. Boutin for all procedures, I also coordinate contests for patients and referring offices, and visit referring offices to help keep the line of communication open between our offices.

Dr. Boutin is great to work with, as he has a very calm manner and supports his staff completely. The office has a great TEAM vibe, in that everyone works together to keep the day flowing smoothly. We all strive to make everyone feel like family!

My husband and I are officially empty nesters! We have three grown boys who are now getting married and starting families of their own. We live active lives trying to get out to the mountains as often as we can for hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, camping, kayaking, and rock climbing. Somewhere between all that fun, we also love to renovate and flip our homes!

September

Registered Dental Assistant (Level II with orthodontic module) and Treatment Coordinator

I’ve worked in the dental field for almost 20 years and have spent almost 15 of those right here! I meet with our new patients: helping to explain the treatment process and starting them on their journey to a new smile with us.

Dr. Boutin does the best work! He is professional, skilled, caring, and fun! He and Diane lead by example, both within the practice and in the community.

I love furry things! I have adopted many cats and dogs over the years! I love spending time in the mountains and used to live in Jasper, which is still my favorite place. I also like to read, paint, and draw whenever I’m not outside!

Michelle 

Registered Dental Assistant (Level II with orthodontic module)

As one of Dr. Boutin’s assistants, patient health and quality care is my primary concern, as is creating an environment where all patients feel comfortable and welcome. I love watching our patients’ lives transform and their confidence build, and seeing smiles all around as their smile changes with orthodontic treatment!

I’ve been a member of Dr. Boutin’s team since 2012. He has a high level of professionalism and competence, and exudes confidence as he interacts with his patients. As a team, we work together to continue that legacy he sets.

I am married to a wonderful man, and together we have three handsome and healthy boys! I also have a dog named Sugar who is so sweet! I enjoy reading, music, and anything outdoors from camping to hiking to beach time, or anything in between!

Joelle

Registered Dental Assistant (Level II with orthodontic module)

I’ve been a registered dental assistant since 2012 and have spent almost my entire career with Dr. Boutin and our team here. I enjoy making people laugh, so being able to make my team and our patients smile with my personality makes me feel great! The best part about working in orthodontics is seeing the confidence people gain after treatment. Watching a patient smile with pride makes my day!

I recently bought my first house with my boyfriend and together we are raising my daughter. We also have three cats — Leeroy, Ragnar, and Xena — and a Siberian Husky named Sif. We obviously love animals and enjoy traveling as well.

Ashley

Registered Dental Assistant (Level II with orthodontic module)

I love working with a skilled, respectful team. We all get along so well! We’re dedicated to supporting each other so we provide the best experience for our patients. We make everyone feel welcome at our office. Dr. Boutin creates great smiles and our patients love showing them off!

I assist Dr. Boutin with regular adjustments, bonding, follow-up appointments, and much more. I enjoy working with our patients and building a rapport with each. Educating people about their oral health, and seeing those beautiful smiles after treatment is complete, keeps me energized and loving my profession.

I am a social butterfly outside the office. Balancing relationships with friends and family is important to me, but my favorite times are spent with my husband Sammy and our fur baby, Chewbacca. I love to cook and am constantly planning out the next dish I’m going to make. And, although I was born and raised in Calgary, you can often find me exploring the city, trying new restaurants, and strolling by the Bow River. I also love to travel and want to see the whole world.

Andrea

Registered Dental Assistant (Level II with orthodontic module)

I studied dental assisting in Montreal in 2006 and have worked in orthodontics, general dentistry, oral surgery, and cosmetic dentistry. The best part of orthodontics in particular is getting to see patients’ self-confidence start to come through as their smile gets better.

As a part of Dr. Boutin’s team, I assist during procedures, place brackets, and generally make sure our patients are having a great time in our office. Dr. Boutin is a great orthodontist, so knowledgeable, and genuinely cares about his patients and staff members. The girls are a fun-loving, happy team and work like a well-oiled machine. I’m proud to be a part of this group!

I was born and raised on the south shore of Montreal and moved to Calgary in 2008. I have been married for eight years and have a two-year-old son. I’m also a huge dog lover!

Brandi

Registered Dental Assistant (Level II with orthodontic module)

Since coming to work for Dr.Boutin in May 2020, I’ve come to love the fact that everyone in our office feels like a family. It’s refreshing to love coming to work every day and to be part of such a positive, skilled, and professional team. As well as building healthy relationships with patients, I love laughing with everyone I work with, it makes my days so enjoyable!

As a registered orthodontic assistant, I get to work independently as well as alongside Dr.Boutin, placing brackets, changing wires for braces, helping with other orthodontic appliances, and best of all, helping patients get to feeling more confident about their smiles!

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, going on adventures, and hanging out at home with my husband Ryan and our dog Bear. We love to take road trips to go bungee jumping out in Whistler! We are both into sports, which I have always been a huge part of my life, and I love playing hockey in the winter and baseball in the summer!

Sterilization Technicians:

Joanne

Sterilization Technician and Ordering Manager

I like working with a diverse team and learning from them. Each team member is kind and patient, skilled, and really gives their all to our patients. While this is a fast-paced environment, we make sure we have time to chat with patients and keep them smiling during treatment!

I help with clinical sterilization and order all of the supplies for the office.

My leisure activities are focused on my well-being, my Aboriginal culture, and enjoying the beautiful city of Calgary. I am a mother of two daughters. My youngest had treatment from Dr. Boutin with amazing results! I recently went to Nigeria and married; I look forward to introducing my new husband, Chukwudi, to the team, once he arrives in Canada.

Jannell

Sterilization Processing Technician

I attended SAIT to begin my profession as a sterilizing technician. When I graduated, I found an opportunity to work with Dr. Boutin and his team to help sterilize and provide clean medical tools to ensure safe patient care.

I get to work with a close-knit team of hardworking individuals who also know how to have fun! I really couldn’t ask for more when it comes to my work family.

I really enjoy travelling and spending quality time with friends and family. I also really enjoy eating ... like, a lot. If I’m not enjoying tasty foods, you will most likely find me taking naps or watching non-scary movies!
