Cheryl K.


Cheryl has a special place in her heart for animals and dedicates a lot of her time and resources to rescue-related causes. She enjoys working out and eating out, entertaining loved ones and anything outdoors – including hiking, golfing, and jet skiing. Cheryl first became interested in Orthodontics while going through treatment herself around age 14. In 1991, Cheryl attended Douglas College and became a Certified Dental Assistant. By 1993, she was a Licensed Orthodontic Assistant through the University of British Colombia and became a Registered Dental Assistant in 2003. Cheryl has been running the front office and creating a comfortable, family atmosphere at American River Orthodontics since 2006. She loves to see the before and after experience of happy patients.
