Sandhya Rai, RDH
I have always liked people and taking care of them and that is how I became interested in dentistry. I graduated as a dental hygienist in 2002 and I have been working with Dr. Saran and her associates since. I have continued my education and have become a registered restorative hygienist and have completed extensive training in periodontics, orthodontics, sleep apnea and many other areas. I also taught dental hygiene at CNIH for 5 years as a clinical instructor. I love to share my wealth of knowledge and experience with all my patients. I am very pro active in teaching you how to have the best possible health. I may lecture but I do it with a smile and a laugh and you will leave the appointment with a lot of new knowledge and hygiene techniques specific to you!
I began my career in dentistry as an assistant where I learned a lot about dental health and how different procedures are completed. The knowledge I gained in my time as an assistant has only helped me excel at the administration side of dentistry. Not only do I understand the steps in the process to complete your recommended treatment plan, but also how to use your insurance to the best of it’s ability so there is minimal cost to you. I value all of my patients and always have time to explain things in more detail and to discuss pros and cons of any situation. I treat my patients like I would a best friend. I love to get to know you in the time we have before the appointment and it is my goal to make sure you leave our office completely satisfied and looking forward to your next visit.
Moved to Ottawa in 1993. Was always intrigued by dentistry. In High school I volunteered in the Dental Clinic at CHEO to get a good feel for the profession. I Graduated from Career Canada College in 1996 from the Dental Assisting program. Worked as a CDA for almost 10 years before switching my focus on admin. I enjoy all aspects of dentistry but am most interested in Surgery. Getting to know my patients, and making them feel comfortable all while providing great service is important to me. I am very happy to be part of such a great team here at McArthur Dental. When I am not at work, you can find me spending quality time with my 2 teenage daughters, cooking, camping or traveling.
