Florina

Treatment Coordinator

Florina came to Canada in 1996. She was at stay-at-home mom until her teenage girls decided they no longer needed their mom home during the day. Florina disliked dental offices until she met the receptionist at her dental office who made her feel welcome and comfortable as soon as she walked in. That’s why she decided to choose a new profession and become a dental receptionist. She graduated from Medical/Dental office Administration in 2007 and joined Barrhaven Dental Care shortly after.

Just like her miniature Dachshund, Florina loves hot weather. She enjoys reading, travelling, shopping (especially at the busiest of seasons). She adores jewellery (she is “the Pandora Queen” at the office) and her old time favourite hobby is making silver jewellery.
