Dentistry is a constantly evolving profession with fascinating new techniques and materials.

Dr. Joey Woo
Dr. Woo or Joey, as he prefers, was born and raised in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. He attended the University of Saskatchewan where he graduated from the College of Dentistry in 2004. He made the move to Calgary soon after to begin his dental career.
Joey strives for clinical excellence while also making your visit as pleasant as possible. To keep up with the latest dental techniques, materials and technology Joey devotes a significant portion of his time to continued education. Each patient has different goals and hopes for their dental health and Joey is intent on guiding them to attaining these goals. Joey and the entire Springbank Dental team are dedicated to providing a professional yet comfortable and inviting environment.
In his spare time Joey loves to be active and outdoors. He enjoys playing basketball, football, golf, tennis, mountain biking and skiing. In between activities and co-operating weather patterns he enjoys cooking for his wife Diana, whom he married in July 2014.
For two of the last three years Joey has volunteered his time abroad to provide dental treatment in remote regions of the world. He travelled to small villages in Cambodia and Bosawas Biosphere Reserve in Nicaragua through the organization ‘Kindness in Action’. He found these experiences very rewarding and plans to do further trips in the next couple of years.
I studied at Del Mar College in Corpus Christi, Texas. In 2006 I graduated magna cum laude and earned my Associates Degree in Dental Hygiene. I have been a member of both the Canadian Dental Hygiene Association and College of Registered Dental Hygienists of Alberta ever since.
I find my job really rewarding. I meet a lot of great people and I get to make a difference in their lives as good oral hygiene is a key element in a healthy lifestyle. I enjoy putting things in order and when patients are in my chair I feel like I am putting their teeth and gums in order. When patients leave our office I like to think that I have provided a benefit to their health and well-being. Continuing education is an important element in being a good hygienist and helps me grow personally and professionally. I have been certified by the Perio Laser Institute for using the dental laser on soft tissues and periodontal diseases and I have attended many Dental Hygiene related courses over the years.
I have been at Springbank Dental Centre since we opened in May 2010 where I worked full time developing the hygiene department and implementing periodontal maintenance programs. After having my son Logan in January 2012 and taking a one year maternity leave, I returned to Springbank Dental Centre part time currently working Mondays, Tuesdays and Saturdays. Once again I am expecting another baby boy and will be away for 2015. I will be returning in January 2016. Springbank Dental Centre is a great office with a great team and I really enjoy working here!
Hi my name is Nancy and I am one of the friendly voices that you may hear when calling into Springbank Dental Centre. I joined the Springbank team in February 2010 after following Dr. Woo from his previous clinic where he was an associate for six years. I graduated in 1991 as a Certified Dental Assistant but have chosen to work in the administration side of the industry. More recently I have taken on the role of Office Manager and I am looking forward to all the exciting challenges that this position has in store for me. I truly believe that we have a great team and we all enjoy making patients feel comfortable.
When I am away from the office I have a wonderful husband and three grown children as well as a variety of pets that keep me very busy. We also love to travel and camp with family and friends throughout our short summer season. If I am able to steal time away for myself, I enjoy spending time in my sewing room.
Hello, my name is Rhonda and I have been working in the dental field since 1980. Phew that is a long time! At Springbank Dental Centre I am working as a Dental Administrator. I very much enjoy working with such great dentists and coworkers. Working in administration is a nice change from being a dental assistant in past offices both general and orthodontic dentistry.
In my ‘away from work’ time, I enjoy being with my husband Tom and daughter Madisen. As a hobby, I am a lampwork glass bead artist and spend many hours creating and sharing in my home glass studio. I also enjoy golfing, gardening and long walks around the community with our Bernese mountain dog, Charlotte.
Hi my name is Stephanie and I have been working as a dental assistant since I graduated from SIAST in Saskatchewan in 2008 before moving to Calgary in 2012 to join the team at Springbank Dental. I have enjoyed the last six years as a dental assistant furthering my education in all aspects of dentistry giving me a wider range of understanding in other fields of dentistry.
In my free time outside the clinic I enjoy travelling mostly to warm destinations, taking in the sun and beaches, and making the journey back to Saskatchewan to visit family and friends. In the summer, I like to spend most of my time outside enjoying hiking and various outdoor activities. I cannot say I am a big winter fan but maybe now living in Calgary I will give skiing a chance someday.
Hi, my name is Stephanie and I have worked at Springbank Dental Centre since October 2010. I have worked in the dental field for a total of seven years. My favorite part of my job is seeing our Invisalign patients transforming their beautiful smiles.Before starting in the dental field, I graduated SAIT in 2008 with a diploma in Culinary Arts. In September 2013 I gave birth to my beautiful daughter who has been an absolute joy. When I am not at work I like to spend time with my family and friends watching a great movie or enjoying a glass of wine over dinner.
