Meet Our Team

Linnea
Financial Coordinator
My name is Linnea and I am the Financial Coordinator at Impressions Orthodontics. My goal each day is to create a warm and welcoming environment for each and every one of our patients, making the journey to a beautiful smile a fun and pleasant one. Growing up, I can remember how nervous I was to have braces but the immediate confidence boost you feel when your smile is perfected, is a moment I am happy to be a small part of. When I am not working with the amazing Impressions team, my husband and I enjoy trying out new restaurants in our city and long walks in the park with our dog, Willow. We love to entertain friends and family, enjoying each other’s company over a home-cooked meal.
Megan
Patient Coordinator
My name is Megan and I am the Patient Coordinator here at Impressions Orthodontics. My goal in all areas of my life is to make people feel comfortable, so I can’t wait to meet you at our clinic to do the same. I just can’t get over the empathy and bond that we build with our patients. I want to make you feel excited to visit our team and happy to book your next appointment! When I’m not in the office making you smile, you can catch me cooking, or starting a new crafting project with my son. My husband and I love board games or meeting up with friends and playing disc golf at a local course.
Amadia
Treatment Coordinator
My name is Amadia and I am the Treatment Coordinator. The amazing team at Impressions Orthodontics made me feel at home when I joined the family and it's my goal to extend that great experience to all our patients. My hope is to create a kind and welcoming atmosphere for our patients from the moment they walk through our doors. When I had spacers, braces and retainers of my own the warmth, positivity and kindness I was shown made all the difference to actually enjoying the journey. Getting that perfect smile is something to celebrate and enjoy. It's amazing to see our patients achieve their goals! Outside of the working environment you'll find me with my husband and dog, Indie. We love camping, hiking, visiting the ocean, trying new recipes, spending time with family and friends, and occasionally being couch potatoes. We also love to travel and dream of converting a retro RV one day to explore up and down the west coast.
Ciana
Clinical Liaison
My name is Ciana and I’m the Clinical Liaison at Impressions Orthodontics. Along with assisting Dr. Nizam in the consult room, I help out in any way I can throughout the office. I love meeting all our new patients and watching their faces light up as they see the way Dr. Nizam is able to transform their smiles. I’m no stranger to Orthodontics, I’ve gone through the works myself... braces, retainers, head gear (yes, head gear) and Invisalign. So I’m very well aware of the work it takes to achieve “the smile.” I’m so grateful to work with a team that really makes each person feel like family. In my spare time I think of the beach, any chance I get I’d be in the ocean. My husband and I love traveling so we dream of the day we’re able to buy our own hippie van and travel more of the world together. I also love dancing, there’s not one dance circle you won’t see me in the middle of.
Cally
Clinical Assistant
My name is Cally and I am a Registered Orthodontic Dental Assistants at Impressions Orthodontics. In addition to working on the clinic floor with all of our lovely patients, I am also our Lab and Social Media Coordinator. I fell in love with orthodontics during my own braces journey, every appointment was so fun and when I began to notice a change in my own teeth I knew I wanted to help others realize they too can get their dream smile. My favourite part in our day is getting to see the joy on our patient’s faces when their treatment is all done and they get to see their new smiles! In my spare time I enjoy relaxing with my family and friends, and when I have some extra time I love to travel, I’ve been to 19 countries so far and I hope to explore more of the world.
Kierra
Clinical Assistant
My name is Kierra and I am a register orthodontic assistant at impressions orthodontics. My love of orthodontics came from seeing the joy and confidence being brought back to each patients after they see their new smile and just being able to play a small part in that is what makes me love what I do. This is also why I am so happy to come to work each day and work with this fantastic team where everyone including our patients are treated like family. Most of my leisure time away from work is spent with family and friends. I try to spent some time travelling and enjoying nature, but I love being able to share my baking skills and talents with others.
Ezri
Sterilization Assistant
My name is Ezri, I'm the sterilization assistant for Impressions Ortho. My job is to make sure all the instruments are sterilized according to Alberta's Infection and Control Standards. I stay tuned with all the new changes in our sterilization standards to ensure we are always ahead of the new guidelines.
