Shannon Smart

I have had the privilege of working at Maple Ridge Orthodontics since 2001. I’m an avid reader, enjoy cooking and you’ll often find me at the gym. The best part of my job is not only working with such a fabulous group of people, but having the opportunity to watch our patients grow and change. It’s amazing to see the happiness in our patient’s faces when they get the smile they’ve always wanted and deserved.



Sue Nikula

I moved to Maple Ridge in late elementary school and went to Alexander Robinson when it was on the corner of 240th and Dewdney (dating myself just a little bit). I had the privilege of raising my three adult children just over the Maple Ridge border in Stave Falls. I started my career in dentistry as a receptionist and went on to get my certified dental assistant certification. After my children were born, I returned to the receptionist role and have been an orthodontic receptionist for a very long time, (I must have been two years old when I started) I love my children, reading and although we don’t currently have one of our own, dogs! My sense of humour has definitely played a role in my success in this industry.






 

 

Jenna Crews

I moved to Maple Ridge with my family when I was 5 and attended elementary and high school locally.  Growing up in a motocross family has gifted me with the travel bug and I'll admit I have my own pink dirt bike.  I loved my orthodontist appointments because the staff was so amazing and I ended up with the best smile(Thanks Dr. Maplethorp and Dr. Siu)I have had the pleasure of working in the dental field more than 5 years and landed my "dream job" at Maple Ridge Ortho in 2021.  I love dogs(especially Lily, the family goldendoodle), golfing with my husband Tyler and matcha lattes from Starbucks
