Certified Dental Assistant


Alison is a kind and sincere advocate for patients, an indispensable team member to the clinical and administrative staff at Highlands Family Dentistry and a truly exceptional assistant to Dr. Gagner.  She listens.  She explains.  She is patient and caring.  She educates and assists our patients in every way possible. Alison received her Certified Dental Assistant degree from Okanagan College and joined Dr. Gagner's practice in 2016.  She and her husband, Glendon, were born and raised in the Okanagan and found it a very easy decision to also raise their three daughters here--mostly on the soccer pitch!  Alison loves to spend long-weekends camped around a slow-burning fire, or hiking a local trail with her family...and her Schnoodle, Ollie.  If ever she happens upon a moment to herself, her creative hands are usually still happily hard at work sewing, knitting, making or baking.
