  • Janet -
    Dental Hygienist

    Hi, I’m Janet, or more commonly Jan.

    Eastbridge Dental Care has been an awesome place to work, ever since starting with Dr Krebs in May of 1989, as one of his first dental hygienists. It has been great watching the families, staff, and practice grow!

    As a dental hygienist, I clean teeth, take X-rays and teach proper dental care. I continually take expanded education courses like orthodontics, Invisalign, vizalite (an oral cancer screening procedure), and periowave, all of which we have implemented into our practice.

    I graduated from the University of Toronto in 1976 from the dental hygiene program. I am an active member of the ODHA, and CDHA.

    In 2002 I opened a store in St. Jacobs, called Turtle Dove Native Gifts. I sell Canadian Native-made products including; soapstones, prints, original paintings, jewelry and more. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends.

  • Krista
    Dental Assistant

    Hi I’m Krista the Head Assistant at Eastbridge Dental Care. My career started in May 1994 with Eastbridge, and I assist Dr. Krebs on a day to day basis.

    In 1994 I attended Career Canada College – and obtained my CDA Level 1, and in 2002 I obtained my CDA Level II certification.

    Eastbridge Dental is almost my home away from home, I love it here! The casual, fun atmosphere, and the other staff members, makes for an excellent work environment. And our patients are incredible, many of which I consider friends.

    With three young children, I don’t always have a lot of spare time but I do enjoy jogging outdoors when the weather is nice. Shopping is always a great way to spend some extra time…and I am a reluctant skier and snowboarder. However, my après-skiing is excellent!

    I hope that I can make your visit to Eastbridge Dental Care as comfortable as possible. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask me.

    Hi, my name is Nora. I grew up in Montreal and moved to Kitchener-Waterloo when I was 16 years old. I am fluent in three languages: French, Arabic and English. In 2004 I graduated with honours and earned my CDA II degree. I have been a dental assistant for almost ten years now and I love what I do. I have worked for various dentists and have learned a lot over the years, and I bring all that knowledge with me to Eastbridge Dental Care.

    I feel very fortunate to be a part of the Eastbridge Dental team. My primary job is assisting the hygienists and on occasion one of the dentists. It is a pleasure working with this amazing staff and multi-talented dentists. This office has become my home away from home!
