Dr. Andrea Stevens

Dentist & Owner
Dr. Andrea Stevens is working to transform dentistry, one patient at a time. She believes that dentistry can be better than most people think it is. Dentistry is a broader, more comprehensive discipline than it has been in the past, and it can also be designed as a more custom experience that is comfortable and welcoming.

Amanda Dr Andrea Stevens Dentistry Staff 1


Dental Assistant

Amanda joined our team as a dental assistant after graduating from Algonquin College in June of 2023.

After completing her professional placement at our clinic, she knew how much she wanted to be a part of our team. Now, working as Dr. Stevens’ assistant, she couldn’t be happier. Amanda is always enthusiastic to learn and strives to do her best.

Amanda is passionate about working in the health care field because of the unique interactions and connections she has with people. Before transiting to dental, Amanda worked as a veterinary technician. This gave her the opportunity to learn about animal behaviour and how to provide appropriate and individualized care.

When not at the clinic, Amanda enjoys spending time with her partner and cat. She loves plants, walks, being in nature, and admiring wildlife. She loves learning about people and their interests. Feel to talk to her about your pets anytime, it will make her day.
