Dr. Arsenault has been a great asset to our practice. When Dr. Brittain cannot be here, Dr. Arsenault allows us more flexibility in keeping you on your regular hygiene schedule, allowing more room for your unexpected visits and minimizing wait times for scheduled dental work. You can be assured that Dr. Brittain has full confidence in Dr. Arsenault. He often recommends that if the opportunity presents, and it is convenient that you see Dr. Arsenault. You will find yourself in great care.
Tiffany, CDA (Dental Assistant)
Tiffany joined Dr. Brittain as his Assistant after graduating from the Dental Assisting Academy of New Brunswick in 2007. They’ve been working side by side ever since. Tiffany’s interest in dentistry grew from having extensive procedures herself. She has a great understanding of how it feels to be the patient as she assists Dr. Brittain.
Ashley, RDH (Hygienist)
Ashley carried out 4 years of post secondary education; her first two were spent at UNBSJ moving on to two years at Oulton College, where she completed the Dental Hygienist program in 2009. She has been with us ever since. When she isn’t here you could find her snowboarding, travelling or doing some extremely tough workouts at the gym. Ashley is passionate about everything she does, her commitment to providing the best oral care to our patients and teaching them effective techniques to use at home is no exception.
Jennifer, RDH (Hygienist)
We can always tell when Jennifer is in the office; her chair side manner keeps everyone giggling.

She loves the challenge of helping fearful patients become comfortable while helping them along with their oral hygiene. Jenn is a part time staff member, when she's not here she keeps busy with her children, volunteering at their school, being outdoors and cooking.
Jennifer is currently on maternity leave. She will be returning in February 2016.
Krista (Office Manager)
Krista came to us in January 2012, after spending 10 years in the automotive industry. Dentistry is a new challenge, however, she is no stranger to accounting, administration, juggling various projects and working with people in all levels of a business to help things run smoothly. Though you will be working with your Dentist and Hygienist for your dental care questions and concerns, feel free to contact Krista should you have any suggestions or questions regarding our practice.
