So, we'd like to say Happy 20th Anniversary to Shantell. Shantell, now at our Aspen Landing Orthodontics location, has been a valued member of our staff for a wonderful 20 years.
If you haven't had the pleasure of meeting her yet, you can get to know her below. (And if you have, did you know these things about her?)
AKA Dora the explorer! I have the "gotta go" kinda personality and love to explore!
I do it all! Orthodontic treatment coordinator and clinical assistant, and administration when needed; educating in the community, marketing to our fellow colleagues, developing and nurturing relationships throughout the dental community.
The versatility of my job. I love to educate and help people.
Yes, when I was 13 years old I had full braces and elastics for 1 year to correct a crossbite and some minor crowding. It was then I knew I wanted to get into orthodontics.
My husband and I share the joy of 3 amazing children. Our oldest has been chasing her dreams in Australia for the past 6 years. She is very artistic and free-spirited. She was in the Young Canadian's of the Calgary Stampede cast for 8 years. Our middle is in MRU taking child studies currently. She is beyond her years and very mature. Loves to read, dine and watch movies. Our youngest is graduating from grade 12 this year. He has played hockey for 14 years with various other sports in the offseason. He has taken a great liking to photography and also has a very artistic mind.
Lola - a female shitzu. She is sweet and snuggly but has attitude like all the girls in the house!
A great friend of mine. She is fearless, intelligent and knows how to enjoy life and live in the moment. So important and not easy to do.
My family! They are so silly.
I'm very outdoorsy, so really anything goes if I can find someone to play with. Hike /bike/ paddle /ski/ snowshoe… the list goes on. I will try anything.
Hustle for the House in Calgary. Our practice sponsors the finish line water station. We cheer and make it a real celebration as the contestants cross the finish line.
Hustle for the House
Super Woman…it's all in the name…her strength and composure, a modern-day woman that can fight any battle thrown at her. And she was beautiful.

“You all take great care. You are kind and thoughtful and always careful to answer all of our questions!!! Thank you. Megan took my daughter in on a Monday to quickly replace an elastic before her retainer was put in — so kind because I know you were not open to clients. Desiree is my FAVOURITE! She is the best, always careful, always adresses my questions and always has a great story or tidbit of info to share. You are all great! I do wonder though, given COVID, why doesn't your team who are working directly with us, our mouths open etc., why don't they wear shields for their own safety?” -Submitted By: Jade Bettesworth
