Port Hardy Dental Clinic Staff

Karen O’Brien

Hi everyone, I am a Certified Dental Assistant (CDA) and have been working in the dental field for over 20 years providing chairside assistance to dentists during complex extractions, restorations, endodontic treatments, crowns, and bridges.

I am known for my friendly, reassuring demeanor and gentle touch during cleanings, X-rays, impressions, as well as many other procedures
I have lived in Port Hardy with my husband for 27 years. I have many hobbies and enjoy outdoor activities such as camping, fishing, hiking, working in my yard, and gardening with my 3 dogs.

Please come and meet the team with our new dentists here at Port Hardy Dental. It would be a pleasure to answer any questions or concerns you may have about your dental treatment, and we will do our best to make your visit a pleasant experience.

Debbie Gillis

You can always count on Debbie to go above and beyond expectations in the dental reception area.

Debbie grew up in Port Coquitlam and moved to Merritt in 1987 with her husband Jim, to raise their three children.
In 2014, she moved to Port Hardy as her husband accepted a position there – and it was a natural fit to embrace their passion for seaside living and exploration. Debbie loves the small-town life of Port Hardy and has enjoyed making the transition from optometric assistant in Merritt to the reception at Port Hardy Dental.

Debbie is thankful to have worked with Dr. Wong at Port Hardy Dental, and now with Dr. Harry Teng and Dr. Raymond Tang.

Chellsea is happy to be a part of our team as a Dental Assistant at Port Hardy Dental, and is looking forward to turning it into a lifelong career. She would like to give special thanks to Dr. Wong and Rosie for giving her the opportunity for success in her career.
