Meet The Team

Dr. Corbin Sallis & Dr. Kelsie Sallis - Family Dentistry


Terri

Office Manager

After graduating from Kamloops Senior Secondary School, a long, long time ago, I was offered a job by Dr. Bill Albiston in his dental office. I enjoyed working as a chairside assistant and receptionist for Bill and his great staff. After a few years, life and family took me, my husband, and 2 children to the lower mainland for 5 years. I worked for an endodontist in Burnaby and did some temp work as well. My family - with our new baby boy - then moved to Smithers where I met and worked for Dr. Ciriani for 11 of the 13 years we were there. We moved back to Kamloops in 2002 and are thankful to be near my parents. Five years ago, Dr. Ciriani offered me a position in his Kamloops practice, and I gladly accepted.

I have come full circle now as Dr. Ciriani had purchased Dr. Albiston's practice where my dental career first began.

I am very grateful!


Cindy

Business Admin

I was raised in Barriere, BC, a rural town north of Kamloops, BC. Along with my husband, we raised our three children in the small community of Simpcw, BC.

 I received training as a Medical Office Assistant in 1996, but life had other adventures in store for me at the time. In 2005, while a Support Worker for both Neqweywelsten School and Little Moccassins Headstart, I was asked to lead the Children's Oral Health Initiative (COHI) pilot project with Dr. Ciriani and Q'wemtsin Health Society for Simpcw First Nation. Thus began my journey into the dental field! The years were full of children, sports, and work commitments. An opportunity to join Sagehills Dental Group as a Sterilization Technician came in the spring of 2017. I gladly accepted! i have learned a great deal with the clinical team while in Sterile Bay. In July of 2019, I was offered the opportunity to join our Office Administration team!


Sophie

Business Admin

I grew up in the northern part of Italy called South Tyrol and lived there until I decided to travel through Canada in 2016. As fate would have it, I fell in love with this beautiful country, and I’m still here.. Lucky me!

I worked as an administrative assistant for 6 years and did some other little jobs like waitressing at a mountain lodge, working in a ski resort in customer service, and serving in a coffee shop.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time outdoors going horseback riding, hiking, biking, camping, skiing, cross country skiing and lots more.


Shauna

Certified Dental Assistant

I moved to Kamloops at the age of 5.

I have been a C.D.A. for over 35 yrs. What a journey!
My hobbies include skydiving and barbell training.  I like to challenge myself and both of these hobbies do that for me. 
I have been volunteering for hospice since 2009.  I am grateful to be able to provide support for end of life care.
Live, love, laugh...and hug. 
 


Kim

Certified Dental Assistant

I have been on a journey for 30+ years as a Certified Dental Assistant. My training began at Camosun College in Victoria. Being an "island girl," it was a great last "Hurrah!"

I am honoured to work with a great team at Sagehills Dental for so many years. I am also honoured to work with our dentists within our First Nations community. We have made many changes from our paper chart days to our paperless ways, from film x-rays to digital x-rays. What a journey with more to come!


Jennifer

Registered Dental Hygienist

 I spent my childhood growing up in the 100 Mile House area. I graduated with a diploma in Dental Hygiene from the College of New Caledonia in 1996 with the award of 'Highest Excellence in Clinical and Academic studies'. I joined our team in 2008 when I settled in Kamloops.

Before having a family, I lived in Calgary for 10 years and enjoyed volunteering as a counselor with the Alberta Dental Hygiene Association. I also volunteered with Mercy Ships a few times in West Africa working as their dental hygienist in rural villages.

At Sagehills I pride myself on building trusting relationships with our patients. However, when I am not there, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, skiing, hiking, camping, reading and trying to increase my canvas skills on paint nites!
