Jubilee Dental Centre Team
Cindee Melashenko~ DMD
Cindee graduated from the UBC dental program in 2000. While in dental school, she traveled with a team of doctors and an oral surgeon to West Africa where she extracted teeth for prisoners. Another mission trip in 2002 took her to Guatemala where she provided basic dental care in an orphanage. Cindee practiced general dentistry in Salmon Arm and Ontario before moving to Summerland in 2005.
In addition to routine continuing education, Cindee has also enhanced her dental skills by completing the rigorous 9-course Kois Center program in 2014.
Being a mom to two boys is Cindee's other full-time job. She enjoys horseback riding, tennis, hiking and skiing in her 'spare time'.
Karen ~ Reg. Dental Hygienist
Karen was born and raised in Ottawa, and lived for a number of years in Alberta. She moved to Summerland in 2014 and fell in love with the town. Originally Karen began her career as a dental assistant, but then went back to school to earn her hygienist degree in 2002. At the Jubilee Dental Centre, all team members are encouraged to further their education and expertise.
Some of Karen's personal pursuits include camping, skiing, and water sports.
Jenna ~ Certified Dental Assistant
Jenna received her dental assistant certification from the Okanagan College in Kelowna. Jenna's schooling taught her critical thinking in relation to being an assistant and her skills when working with Cindee are evident. She intuits Cindee's needs with the end result being a seamless and comfortable experience for the patients.
Next time you are in for a visit, check out Jenna's Invisalign braces... we bet you won't know she's wearing them.
Joanna ~ Reg. Dental Hygienist
Joanna has been with the Jubilee Dental Centre team since 2012. She immigrated from Poland as a teenager and still has a charming accent. Joanna earned her hygiene diploma from Durham College in Ontario.
She and her husband live in Kelowna and have four beautiful children. Joanna splits her time between studying the violin and reading classic literature.
Terri ~ Client Care Co-ordinator
Terri will likely be the first person of our team to greet you and the one to wish you a fond farewell. She is well-versed in a variety of dental office responsibilities having worked in several offices spanning more than 25 years.
After hours, you're likely to find Terri cheering on her son in our local ice arenas (he's the lonely goalie at the end of the rink!). She has enjoyed living and working all over BC and is thrilled to raise her family in the Okanagan.
Joel Gregg ~ Practice Manager
Joel's accounting degree and financial background blend well with his wife Cindee's dental skills. He is passionate about physical health and fitness and believes so strongly in the holistic approach to the Jubilee Dental Centre that he implemented a full-on weight training facility in the un-used lower level of the dental office. Ask Joel for a tour of the Jubilee Fitness Club.
Joel's outdoor activities are kayaking, skiing, and road trips with a dash of adventure.
