Meet Our Dental Staff

Administration Team


LoriI graduated from Durham College as a Preventative Dental Assistant in 1997 and have been working with Dr. Appleton ever since. My main position in the practice is the Office Administrator, but I also enjoy working with children and assisting the dentists. I have thoroughly enjoyed my years at the office!




SueMy role as part of the Appleton Dental Team is the Treatment Co-ordinator. I was originally trained as a Certified Dental Assistant at St. Clair College in Windsor. After working for several years as an Assistant I was offered a position at one of the insurance companies in the Dental Claims department where I was able to learn more about how your dental claims and estimates are processed. I was hired by Dr. Appleton in 2004 and my role as part of the team is to discuss the Dentist’s recommended treatment plan with you, simplify your insurance coverage benefits and if necessary, prepare a financial plan that best suits your needs.



TrishGood day! After graduating from the Durham College Dental Administration Program in 2007, I began my dental career with our former neighbour next door. I was thrilled to join Dr. Appleton’s Dental Team in 2010 once the dental offices merged. I am very fortunate to work with such a caring, personable and professional team. I always look forward to welcoming you to our office and assisting you with any concerns regarding appointments, billing and insurance.


Clinical Team


MichelleI graduated from the Toronto School of Business in 1998 as a Certified Dental Assistant. I was originally hired by Dr. Appleton to cover a maternity leave but was thrilled to be hired on full-time – I have been at the office since 2001! I am very proud to be part of such a great team.


Hygiene Team


SandyI graduated from Algonquin College in 1997. After working in several offices in Toronto, I was originally hired by Dr. Appleton to cover a maternity leave position and have been part of the hygiene team ever since. I am lucky to be working with such caring people. One of the best parts of my day is meeting the people that come to this office.
I look forward to meeting with you!



HilaryI have been with the office for many years, starting out as a patient since childhood. I began my dental career at Dr. Appleton’s office after graduating in 1999 from Durham College as a Certified Dental Assistant. I was Dr. Appleton’s assistant until 2000 when I was accepted in the Dental Hygiene Program in Buffalo, New York. I was honoured to be hired back onto the team as a Dental Hygienist in 2002. I was fortunate to learn early on how wonderful this office is – we have such a wonderful dental team and amazing patients.



LiseI moved to Durham in 1992 after graduating from the Bilingual Dental Hygiene Program at Cambrien College in Sudbury Ontario in 1991. I have known Dr. Appleton and his staff for many years while working in the same building. I was very excited to join his team in 2010. I look forward to many more years here helping the community with all their dental hygiene needs.



Hello! My name is Renata and I am a Registered Dental Hygienist.  I grew up in the Durham region and am proud to be part of such an amazing dental team.  The hard work and dedication of the staff at Appleton Dental creates a warm and compassionate working environment.  My favorite part of my job is getting to know the patients and ensuring that they get the best dental care and education possible.  In my spare time, I enjoy relaxing at the cottage up north.  I look forward to meeting you!



I graduated from Durham College as a Certified Level II Dental assistant. I
started working at Dr. Appleton’s office in the fall of 2016. I really enjoy working with a team who aim to deliver the best for our patients, and I look forward to being a member of this family for a long time.
