Since 1993, Kerri has been the cheery voice and smiley face at the front desk of Maple Leaf Dentistry. With a keen background in many dental treatments, Kerri is the first one you would speak to on the phone, and last one to settle your account. Her office management responsibilities extend to practice accounting and insurance company correspondence. Her sense of detail is uncanny – she remembers names of people from all generations.

Her additional duties at the practice include managing the office and building.
A Peterborough girl with strong connections to the ‘south end’, Kerri enjoys time with her family, travel, running, and gardening.

The sun is always shining over Kerri!
