Nina was born and raised in Calgary, coming from a large Italian family. She has been interested in dentistry from a young age, leading her to complete her Dental Assisting Certificate at SAIT in 2010. She decided to further her knowledge and obtained her Dental Hygiene Diploma at the University of Alberta in 2015. She believes that having a trusting relationship with her patients is key to achieving their optimal oral health. Building these relationships with her patients is one of her favourite aspects of being a dental hygienist.
