Melissa Price (Certified Dental Assistant Level I)



Melissa Napanee DentistryRestorative Coordinator - Napanee

I'm a hometown girl born and raised in the Napanee area. I became a dental assistant in 2001 and three years ago I had the opportunity to be closer to home and expand my skills as a treatment coordinator. I work with a really fun and caring team. I love to interact closely with all the familiar faces that I've grown up with here in Napanee as well as meeting new ones in Kingston. The best part of my job is helping our patients understand their treatments and navigate the road to better health. My husband & I enjoy walking our dogs and I stay active with the youth in our area through a youth group program in Roblin, which is always one of the highlights of my week. 

Isabelle Richardson (Certified Dental Assistant Level II)


Isabelle Kingston and Napanee Dentistry
Office Coordinator – Kingston and Napanee

I attended Maxwell College in 2000 for Dental Assisting and then continued on with my Level II certification at Algonquin College. I didn’t always know that I would love the dental industry until I saw the impact you can make in someone's life. No one should be self-conscious about smiling.

My second love is fitness, and that’s how I keep my life well-balanced.  I started my career as a dental assistant at Dr. Craig’s in 2002, and my career quickly changed and I had the opportunity to be in multiple positions within the practice since then. Office Management has been my position for almost 10 years now and I love the variety of work and dealing with such a great group of people.
