Dr. Jean has a lifelong passion for dentistry and she is an enthusiastic professional who is always eager to learn new techniques and stays up to date with new dental technology. She graduated as a general dentist in the Philippines in 1995, and continued to pursue her dreams when her family migrated to Canada. Through hard work and perseverance, she obtained her Certificate of Qualification from the National Dental Examining Board of Canada in 2015. The love for her profession has taken her far — working as an associate dentist in Edmonton and Red Deer, and now has her own practice, Willow Smile Family Dental.
Dr. Jean is not only passionate about dentistry, but she also enjoys exploring the world and experiencing different cultures. On her days off, she loves spending time with her family and friends and discovering new places. She has a particular fondness for the Rockies and loves being surrounded by nature, whether it's snowshoeing during the winter season or hiking in the summer. When she's not traveling or exploring the great outdoors, Dr. Jean enjoys baking, which she finds to be a great stress relief, and taking her dog, Q, to the dog park. Her goal is to continue to explore the world, meet new people, and create unforgettable memories.
