The Westside Team


Karen is our Office Manager and Treatment Coordinator and has been with Westside Orthodontics since 2005.  Coming to us from the fine country of Scotland, she brings her warm and friendly approach to helping patients with their treatment questions, scheduling appointments and/or financial information.  Karen loves being part of the Westside team and the camaraderie that comes with working with such a great, tight knit group of professionals!  She is a major soccer fan and spends her weekends travelling the Lower Mainland as a soccer mum to her two boys.  Karen’s other interests include cycling and watching British TV shows.


Sheena has been with Westside Orthodontics since 2005 as an Orthodontic Assistant. She loves being involved with the process of improving patients’ smiles – particularly, the rewarding feeling that comes with the last appointment when the braces come off! Not only does she enjoy taking patients through the orthodontic process, but the opportunity it gives her to work with people from different cultures and ages – anywhere from age 7 to 80! When Sheena is not working with patients, she enjoys watching movies, going to restaurants and catching the latest shows on HGTV.


Alexis was born and raised in Vancouver. When she is not at work, she enjoys hiking, shopping and getting together with friends. Alexis has worked as a dental receptionist for two years and loves what she does. She loves her job and the opportunity it brings to meet new people and see patients achieve their perfect smile.


Vanessa has been with Westside Orthodontics since 2017 as an orthodontic assistant. She enjoys discussing with patients on how to keep your gums and teeth healthy during treatment. When not working, you can find Vanessa doing hot yoga, travelling or hiking in North Vancouver.
