“Helping Others Perform Effectively”

For the past two and a half years Stephanie Baker has held the title Treatment Coordinator and Office Manager at Northland Dental in London, Canada. Her passion for healthy smiles started long before she began her career or dental assisting education at Medix College, “My entire life I’ve been obsessed with teeth.  I can remember being in high school and loving the idea of braces.  A nice smile is always nice to see! “

Knowing Stephanie’s love for teeth, her best friend recommended she apply for the open position at Northland dental, “I love where I work and the doctors I work with.  Dr. Burton, Dr. Pinto and Dr. Santi are the smartest people I know and never hesitate to give me advice. Their knowledge and support allows me to perform my job to my best ability. I’m big on teamwork and believe in working together to provide the best care for our patients. It’s important to treat patients and coworkers exactly how you would want to be treated. ”

When faced with obstacles, Stephanie believes in remaining calm, “It can get stressful when there’s a lot on my plate but my solution is to write down all of my tasks and then complete each one. I practice being in the moment and remind myself that everything eventually gets handled.” The support she receives from her Straine Practice Development Coach Vera Powell also helps Stephanie overcome challenges, “Vera is amazing and really gives great advice. She is encouraging and her leadership style is informative with a gentle approach and never overbearing.” Vera also appreciates Stephanie’s hard work and leadership skills, “She is one of the most engaged staff I know. Stephanie exemplifies our definition of engagement: An emotional state that is noticeable and contagious, in a state of action, full of energy and spirit, lively, vivid, vibrant and electric… In other words, alive!”
