Meet the team
Josie – Registered Dental Hygienist
Josie has been working alongside Dr. Rajasekaran for 8 years! She earned her Bachelor of Science from the University of Waterloo, and proceeded to Georgian College for her dental hygiene diploma. She works on a one-on-one basis with patients putting on braces, seeing them through wire changes, and taking their braces off. Josie loves watching the progress of each patient’s teeth when he or she is in braces, and especially enjoys seeing how happy patients are as their teeth become straighter between each appointment.
Another aspect Josie enjoys is working with the latest technology. She appreciates Dr. Raj’s use of new advancements in orthodontics to help patients finish treatment faster and stay comfortable while having braces. When she’s not in the office, Josie enjoys traveling and trying new foods with her husband, and spending time at home just north of Brooklin.
Laura – Certified Level II Dental Assistant
Laura brought her warm personality to our team in 2011. There is never a dull moment for Laura because she wears many hats in the office, including manager all of our marketing, advertising, and social media efforts. She is treatment coordinator, and is responsible for meeting new patients and starting treatment, talking to patients regarding any financial concerns, handling financial matters and answering any orthodontic-related questions patients may have. Laura also assists Dr. Rajasekaran and our hygienists while maintaining the clinic runs smoothly and in a timely manner.
Laura loves having the opportunity to build relationships with different patients on a daily basis. For her, the field of orthodontics is an ever-evolving career choice, and one that allows her to learn new technology and get to know new patients. Laura considers herself lucky to be working with such an amazing team, who are more like family than co-workers.
In her spare time, Laura enjoys gardening, interior design, reading and spending time with her husband and their dog.
Leah – Registered Dental Hygienist
Leah joins DOC in 2016 and comes from an experienced background working with children in dentistry. She is excited to embark on a new journey into orthodontics, and welcomes new challenges with open arms. One of her greatest passions is meeting new people and building relationships with them. Leah works with Josie and Dr. Rajasekaran to put braces on, change wires at regular visits, work with patients to improve brushing techniques, and removes braces.
In her free time, Leah spends her days with family and friends, reading, working out and maintaining a balanced life.
