Meet the Team

We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice.

We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.


Andrea

Receptionist

Likely to be your first contact with our practice, Andrea will help you feel welcome and appreciated. She will work closely with you and the other team members to meet your specific treatment goals. As a longtime member of our team, she has spent a lot of time getting to know our awesome family of patients: catching up with what’s new in their lives, and seeing families grow right in front of her eyes.

When she’s not in the office, Andrea enjoys gardening and traveling.


Laura

Registered Dental Hygienist

Originally from Penticton, BC, Laura moved to Vancouver in 2008. After deciding dental hygiene was the career for her, Laura completed her prerequisites and dental hygiene diploma in British Columbia with honours. Her goals in dentistry are to provide optimal care, education, and comfort to each client. Laura believes it is important for each and every individual who visits Dr. Terry McKay to leave with a great experience and a smile on their face! Laura feels fortunate to be a part of such a supportive and friendly dental team, whose goals are to provide a safe, warm, and professional environment.


Leanne

Certified Dental Assistant

Though Leanne has been a CDA at IQ Dental since 1996, she has more than 30 years of experience working with patients to ensure their comfort and happiness during a variety of dental treatments. Leanne enjoys meeting new people and helping them understand the importance of good dental health. She also feels fortunate to work with the entire IQ Dental team, including Dr. McKay, who can always make her laugh.

Leanne lives on the North Shore and enjoys the many outdoor activities that are available here, especially hiking and skiing.


Heidi

Certified Dental Assistant

When Heidi joined our team, she brought more than 27 years of dental experience with her. Her favorite part of dentistry is the interactions she shares with patients. She enjoys getting to know each of our patients and helping make their dental experience as stress-free as possible. Her commute from Port Moody is well worth it, since she loves her new IQ Dental family. She has also enjoyed getting to know the North Shore and all it has to offer!


Susan

Dental Hygienist

We warmly welcome Susan as the newest permanent member our team. She has been in the dental field since 1982. As a dental hygienist, she considers herself a personal oral hygiene coach who provides tips, suggestions, and feedback to motivate each patient every step of the way towards a happy, healthy mouth. When she is not working at Dr. McKay’s office, she takes her dental hygiene services on the road to elders in long-term care facilities. She also teaches fourth-year UBC dental hygiene degree students their community service learning module in residential care. She received the DHPP teaching award for 2012 and 2013 for her excellence.

When she has free time, Susan loves to travel the world with her husband Glen.
