MargotOffice manager

Margot’s desire to help others inspired her to pursue a career in dentistry. She joined Dr. Provencher’s practice in 2017 as a Certified Dental Assistant. From there she continued to refine her understanding of general dentistry while simultaneously learning about more complex aspects of dentistry including: temporomandibular joint dysfunction, sleep breathing disorders, and orthodontics. 

As Margot’s understanding grew, so did her acuity to share treatment process and objectives with patients. Continually assimilating all facets of dentistry, including operation of a successful practice, led Margot into her current role as Office Manager. 

Margot strives to create an exceptional dental experience in which patients feel heard and empowered to make informed decisions about their wellbeing.

Working with an innovative team, continually expanding personally and collectively, and having the pleasure of witnessing incredible transformations, are just a few reasons she finds our clinic extraordinary.

NaomiCertified Dental Assistant

Meet the newest member of our team! Naomi joined the Kelowna Dental Solutions team on September 12, 2022, as a Certified Dental Assistant.

Naomi started working in the dental field “straight out of the gate.” She enrolled in Okanagan College’s Dental Assistant program immediately after graduating high school and received her certificate in 2020. Her favourite part about dentistry is helping people get out of pain. She loves seeing how people’s lives change once they no longer have to deal with constant pain or migraines. Naomi was thrilled to land a role at Kelowna Dental Solutions because KDS does a lot more with jaw issues and the pain associated with that than many other offices in town.

Born in Kelowna and raised in Peachland, on her time off Naomi can be found hanging out at all the local secret hidden gems like Bertram Park and Skinny Dukes, and she of course loves her country music!
