Our Team

Our team at Dr. Jo-Anne Matheson's Office.

Dr. Jo-Anne Matheson  (Dentist)

Dr. Jo-Anne Matheson received her Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 1988.  She was a member of the Canadian Military being employed as a Dental Officer in a variety of provinces.  While being posted in Ottawa, she began her dental practice at the St. Laurent Dental Centre so that upon her completion of her military duty in 1996, she was able to devote her time to her full time practice.

Dr. Matheson is a proud mother of two daughters.  She and her husband are involved with their daughters' activities but they also are able to enjoy running.  Figure skating is also Dr. Matheson's passion as a sport and she has been competing, training, or teaching since she was very young.

Dentistry has been and continues to be an exciting field so with that, Dr. Matheson enjoys participating in continuing education with regards to new technologies and new techniques.  The motivation is that she can provide a variety of treatment modalities to patients that want to achieve or maintain their smiles and dental health.

Kristine Preston  (Office Administration Assistant)

Kristine joined our team in 2006 as our "go to girl" for appointments, accounts and insurance.  She graduated in December of 1999 (a long time ago :) ) with her national certification as a Level 2 dental assistant, but found she loved being at the front desk.

She has a husband, 2 children, 2 dogs and a cat, so multi-tasking is her specialty.  She is very passionate about healthy teeth and gums and wants to help our patients feel the same way!

Krysteen Hodge  (CDA II)

Krysteen joined our team in 2010 as Dr. Matheson's "right hand woman". She graduated from CDI College in 2007 as an Intra-Oral Dental Assistant and has been loving it ever since.

Krysteen has been in a relationship with her spouse for about 8 years strong and would not change a thing. She has a supporting family and a loving puppy :)

Krysteen enjoys being a Dental Assistant and hopes to continue in this field for as long as possible.

Joanne Gendron  (Registered Dental Hygienist)

Joanne began studying in Halifax at Dalhousie University but finished her Registered Dental Hygiene Diploma here in Ottawa at La Cite Collegiale.  She graduated in 2000.

Joanne is married with two lovely daughters.  In her spare time, she enjoys skiing in the winter and loves boating in the summer.

The one thing that stands out about Joanne as a Dental Hygienist is her love of people and the genuine professional care she gives to every person.

Amanda Leroux  (Registered Dental Hygienist)

Amanda graduated from Algonquin College and joined our team part-time in the fall of 2008. Prior to becoming a Hygienist Amanda worked as a Dental Assistant for about 1 year and as a veterinary assistant for about 3 years.

As a Hygienist Amanda enjoys developing relationships with patients and working together with them to achieve the healthiest smile possible.
