A Celebration To Remember!

A Celebration To Remember!

Take a look inside our Celebration of Nature, Art & Science!

“Life only exists with both memories and missions”

As we celebrate a successful and memorable event for our clinic, we take a moment to reflect on the evening, and to thank every single person who came out and showed their support to our team, who came together to create an unforgettable experience for our guests.

Bringing together local artists and industry favourites, complimented by great food and refreshments, we aimed to create a diverse, inclusive environment for all to enjoy, centred around our theme of the Celebration of Nature, Art & Science. 

Here is to celebrating the new future, together!

Nature, Art & Science, with Canadian Explorer and Best-Selling Author, Adam Shoalts!

Hello Friends!

It has been a very eventful past year around our clinic, with lots of new and exciting changes, partnerships and events happening!

We thought we would share some of our most exciting updates with you!

– That being our partnership with Canadian explorer and writer, Adam Shoalts! Some of you may recognize Adam from his many expeditions across Canada, or most notably, his journey across Canada’s Arctic, documented in his 2019 Documentary “Alone Across the Arctic”, as well as his national best-selling books, such as “Alone Against the North” and “The Whisper on The Night Wind”.

The partnership with Adam Shoalts was inspired by celebrating the connections of Nature, Art, and Science, connecting our lives, our community, and the excitement of new discoveries!

Follow along with us on our Instagram @periointhepeninsula, as we join forces with Adam on his latest expedition, receiving exclusive, live updates and photos!

Larissa

Treatment Coordinator

Larissa may be new to her role as a Treatment Coordinator but is no stranger to our practice! Being a graduate student at Brock University, completing her M.Sc. in Applied Health Sciences, she studied how delays in regularly scheduled care because of the COVID-19 clinic closure in March 2020 impacted periodontal health. She was also awarded an Ontario Graduate Scholarship in 2021 for this research project and has also published an article in Oral Health in October 2021 on the relationship between plant-based diets and periodontal disease.

Larissa has also recently been accepted to the PhD program in Health Biosciences at Brock University, and plans to continue her research in the area of periodontal health & wellness and nutrition, with a strong emphasis on knowledge mobilization in this area – “ I am passionate about building a bridge between research and practice, making research as meaningful as it can be by getting the right information to the right people, in the way that works best for them. In turn, I hope that my research will be able to meaningfully contribute to professional practice and directly or indirectly help improve the periodontal health of Canadians.”

Larissa’s extensive and impressive educational background and commitment to periodontal wellness, are just some of the many qualities that make her an exemplary member of our team and are surely just the foundation for the many great achievements that lay ahead for her throughout her career. When Larissa is not in the clinic, or vigorously studying, she can be found hiking local trails with her wonderful pot-cake (rescue dog from St. Lucia), Trouya
