Building a sound doctor/patient relationship with my staff are an essential part of my practice and have been for a number of years.
Maria graduated in 2004 as a Registered Dental Assistant and later in 2007 completed the Orthodontic module at the University of Alberta. Over the years, she has been fortunate to work side by side with Periodontists, Prosthodontists and Orthodontists. This in turn has given her first-hand experience with procedures such as assisting for oral surgery implant placement to changing wires for braces to polishing teeth. She feels blessed to return once again to Prosthodontic Dentistry here at Energy Square Dental. Aside from dentistry, she enjoys spending time with her two wonky and adorable kids, reading, swimming and hiking.

Corene graduated from N.A.I.T's Dental Assisting program in 1987. She spent the first 2 years of her career working in a general dental practice with Dr. Jose Magathan, who helped her develop both solid assisting skills as well as a great work ethic. When Dr. Magathan left Edmonton to further her training, Corene took a position for the next four years in the Main Dental Clinic at the University of Alberta working with the third and fourth year dental students. During the school's summer hiatus, she took advantage of the opportunity to do temp work out in private practices, learning various dental philosophies and learning the art of adaptation. From 1994-1998, Corene had the pleasure of working at Edmonton Diagnostic Imaging where she fine tuned her skills of data collection: taking x-rays, impressions, and intra-oral photographs to a very high standard. She only worked a few months following EDIs move from its downtown location to the west end. Corene "hit the jackpot" when she was hired by Dr. Manning in 1998 as a part time staff member. Along with her role as a chair side dental assistant, she serves as the office's lab coordinator and Infection Prevention Officer. Dr. Manning has provided incredible opportunities for professional growth and is a true mentor of all things dental!
