Angela, Registered Dental Assistant

staff I joined Dr. Kinniburgh's office in October of 2014 and have been working as an orthodontic dental assistant for seven years. There is a lot about working in this field that I enjoy, like building relationships with the patients and seeing how a beautiful smile can bring confidence and happiness to someone. I am originally from Bogota, Colombia. I moved to Texas, then Ontario, and finally to Alberta ten years ago. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and my two children, Mateo and Maya. I love Latin dancing and doing yoga, and look forward to seeing you!


Betty Ann, Treatment Coordinator

staff Hi there! My name is Betty Ann and I am the treatment coordinator for our team. I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Kinniburgh since spring of 2012. After my years in the dental industry (too many to share), I have found that my favorite by far is orthodontics! I will be one of the first people to welcome you to our office, explaining the journey of your orthodontic treatment from beginning to end.  My favorite part of my work day is the people, both our patients and my team. My husband and I live on acreage outside of Strathmore which keeps me very busy. Camping, travelling, entertaining, our three daughters and their families, especially my grandkids, all make my life exciting and fun.


Kristie, Registered Dental Assistant

staffI have worked for Dr. Kinniburgh since February, 2011. I am one of the very first people you will meet when you come for a visit. I look after all of our newest patients, taking pictures , x-rays and imprints of the teeth, but mostly help you to feel comfortable and welcome. I just recently had braces for the first time, and am more than happy to tell you all about it! As a recent patient, and employee, I can honestly say everyone here is kind, gentle, and friendly. That’s just one of the many reasons why I enjoy working here. I love travelling, and going for walks with my husband, Joel,son Bennett and our two fur babies (Boston Terriers/TERRORS). I refinish/repurpose antique furniture and enjoy yoga in my spare time.


Luci, Scheduling Coordinator

staff My name is Luci! I joined Dr. Kinniburgh’s team at OrthoGroup North in July, 2012. I am one of the first points of contact for you, as I work at the front desk as the scheduling coordinator. This allows me to interact with many of our patients and parents. I enjoy seeing the confidence and happiness in the smiles we create. Dr. Kinniburgh and our team promote a very positive environment to work in and the end result is our patient’s always feel comfortable and welcome. Away from the office, I enjoy time with my husband and two adult kids. I also enjoy baking, decorating, which includes lots of shopping, and quality time with our family and friends.
