Dr. Ueda’s team




Certified Dental Assistant

I became part of the Oak Bay Dental Centre team in spring of  2017 after graduating from Camosun College. Every day is different and presents new challenges. All the unique people I meet make it exciting .I enjoy assisting Dr. Hooker and working with children teaching them how to care for their teeth. I also love my team, whether they’re making me laugh out loud or lending me a hand when I need it. They’re like my second family!

I am a very active person and enjoy any kind of fitness, followed by any kind of chocolate treat!  My family has a new addition but I look forward to re-joining you at the office in the spring of 2020! 




I began working in dentistry in 2014 as both a certified dental assistant and a receptionist. My job here with Dr. Ueda gives me the chance to really get to know our patients while providing great customer service and patient care. I enjoy the relationships I’ve created with our family of patients, as well as my coworkers. Our office has such a wonderful, family-focused environment, and I feel fortunate to be a part of it.

I am married with two amazing boys. When I’m not at work, I love to cook, spend time with my family, and read.

Dr. McElroy's team


Certified Dental Assistant

I am one of Dr. McElroy’s dental assistants and work with many of the children in our office. I graduated from Camosun College and began my dental career at Oak Bay Dental in 2008. When with a patient, I am very focused on their needs and gentle in all the care I provide, especially when it comes to our younger patients. I love when a child comes in for the first time and I am able to introduce them to dentistry in a positive way. It is very rewarding to see them smiling and laughing in the dental chair.

I enjoy being outdoors, especially exploring new beaches and hiking all over the island. I love playing baseball in spring and summer and spending time laughing and cooking with friends.



Certified Dental Assistant

I assist Dr. McElroy during restorative procedures and try to be gentle and caring while having fun and making patients comfortable. I find it very fulfilling to make personal connections with patients while also improving their oral health and appearance. I love working with my doctor and the rest of our team because of the positive vibe in our office and the high quality of progressive dentistry we offer. Our group of doctors and staff feel like a family to me; they are a caring, dedicated, and fun group of people to work with.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy cooking, boating, taking fitness classes, and spending time with friends and family.




Receptionist for Dr. McElroy


Hygienist Team


Dental Hygienist

I provide all my patients with the best preventive hygiene care while giving them the education they need to keep their smile healthy. Originally trained in India as a dentist, I moved to Canada to join my husband. Camosum College offered me an opportunity to focus on the preventive aspect of dental care. I love being a hygienist and working with my dental team at Oak Bay Dental Centre. In my free time I enjoy cooking with my husband and international travel.



Registered Dental Hygienist

I love dentistry, mostly because I get to work with so many interesting people every day. While it’s my job to provide education on oral health and preventive care to teeth and gums, what I really enjoy is interacting with my patients and learning about their lives outside our office. I also love this dental practice because we work so well together to provide optimal and individualized care for our patients and have fun doing it!

I was born and raised in Victoria and married my wonderful, supportive husband in the summer of 2016. We are now the proud parents of two beautiful children. I look forward to returning to work from maternity leave in 2020!



Registered Dental Hygienist

I like to take the time to get to know my patients to ensure that they always have a positive experience at our office. Hearing that coming to the dentist wasn’t so bad makes my day! Since joining this office in 2011, I’ve learned so much from the doctors and have had so much fun while doing it! Our office is always filled with laughter!
