Meet Dr. Julie and Her Staff
Rosemary Bedard resides in the lovely town of Zurich with her husband Ivan, where fortunately for her, the office is also located. She therefore has no excuse for not getting to work even in snow storms!! LOL, this is not an issue as she is entering her 26th year of employment in the office at front desk reception. Working with the public and business has always been a part of Rosemary's work history which makes her a prime candidate for "hosting" our office. She is the very proud mother of four children, two boys and two girls, and the extremely proud grandmother of her eleven grandchildren, Jace, Rhett, Cash, Brooks, Stevie, Indy, Kenzie, Beau, Raelynn and Joelle. Rosanna, the newest, was born April 2, 2021. Be sure to see the pictures when you come in!

Erin is a graduate from Fanshawe College with a diploma in Pre Health Science and from Georgian College with a diploma in Dental Assisting Level 2 qualifications. Erin has her HARP Certificate as well as her license with the NDAEB. She is a member of the ODAA and maintains her qualifications throughout the year by taking qualified courses for credits. She has her current first aid and CPR. Erin has been a dental assistant since June of 1997 and is going into her 15th year as an assistant in our office.
