We truly appreciate the following testimonials
provided by valued patients just like you.

Catherine Ventresca
Dentist

I was born and raised locally, and attended E.L.Crossley high school before completing my undergraduate degree at Brock University in Health Sciences. I went on after that to pursue my degree in dentistry at the University of Western Ontario. In 2008 I graduated dentistry and began my career as an associate in Hamilton, and in Welland. I started working in this office in 2010. Over my career as an associate I have been very fortunate to learn from dentists that have given me invaluable lessons and experiences. In February 2015, I officially became owner of the practice and am delighted to continue to caring for patients in this area. I am fortunate to work with an amazing team that shares the same passions for providing excellent patient care. I love what I do and I hope that it shows in the enthusiasm I have for dentistry and people of all ages. I am an active member of several local study clubs, as well as regional, provincial and national dental associations. I enthusiastically seek out continuing education that can enhance the care I give, and keep me up to date on the latest advancements in the field. My goal is to give you the best care possible in a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere.

Rhonda
Office Manager

I graduated, many moons ago, from Brock University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration. I have been the Office Manager in this dental practice for the past 25 years. I thoroughly enjoy the variety of work that my job entails...from direct contact with the patients to accounts receivable and payable. I consider myself very lucky in that, over the years, many of our patients have become my friends and I look forward to continuing to work with them toward a common goal of achieving optimal dental health.

Mary Louise
Hygienist

I am a former graduate of Brock University, Fanshawe and Niagara College. A passion for the profession has kept me engaged as a dental hygienist for over 25 years to a diverse clientele. I am a life long resident of the Niagara Region and have worked in this office since 2003. I belong to a number of professional associations and maintain my continuing education through a variety of experiences. After hours I can usually be found in one arena or another watching my two sons play hockey. I also volunteer as a board of director and past president of the Niagara Regional exhibition for over 24 years and have numerous creative interests.

Janet
Hygienist

I have been a Dental Hygienist since 1993 and have had the joy of being a member of this team for over 10 years. I graduated with honours from Niagara College twice (Dental Assisting 1981, Dental Hygiene 1993) and Brock University (BA English and Psychology 1995). I pride myself in being a caring and empathetic hygienist whose clinical skills, ethical practices and enthusiasm reflect the office philosophies. I work to provide a high standard of care by attending continuing education courses to remain current with new developments in dentistry and dental hygiene care. Due to my background in child studies, public health experience and gentle nature, I am especially good with children. When I am not at work, what I enjoy most is spending time at home with my loving family.

Tessa
Hygienist

I graduated from Niagara College in 2006 as a Dental Assistant and after a few years of working decided to continue my love in the dental field by expanding my knowledge as a Dental Hygienist in 2011 at Georgian College. I now have the opportunity to work in different aspects of the dental field here at Welland Smiles Dentistry. I look forward to seeing you at your appointments to help educate you to achieve and maintain a healthy mouth and smile, as well as, being by Dr. Ventresca’s side assisting her at your dental appointments! It’s rewarding being of both sides of the dental chair. When not at work I enjoy playing baseball, thinking about my next traveling adventure and most of all being with family!

Eden
Assistant

I graduated from college in 1985 as a Certified Dental Assistant (CDA I). To expand my duties, I continued my education in 1999 to receive my level II. I enjoy working as a dental assistant and have been working at the same location since 1989.
