I have worked for Dr. Clawson since the beginning of 1995. I got married in 1981 and have two grown children and a beautiful granddaughter. I enjoy yoga, going to the gym and getting together with family. When not in Canada, my husband and I are lounging by our pool in Lo De Marcos, Nayarit, Mexico.

I joined Clawson Orthodontics in 2007. During my days off, I will be golfing, biking, hiking or enjoying beautiful Cultus Lake.

I have worked at Clawson Orthodontics since 2006. Dr. Clawson was my orthodontist when I was a teenager! I enjoy working in the orthodontic environment and look forward to new technology; I'm a bit of a technology geek! In my spare time, I love to hang out with my husband and our dog, Porsche. We go boating in the summer and quading in the other seasons.


Staff_Chantal_14feb14.jpgCertified Dental Assistant – Orthodontic Module
I graduated from the University of the Fraser Valley CDA program in 2010 and started working in general dentistry in Abbotsford. I took the orthodontic module course in 2011 and began working for Dr. Clawson in 2012. I share the job of sterilization and restocking with Heather, as well as working in the clinic and helping to make aligners. I was a patient of Dr. Clawson's when I was a teenager, and I am enjoying the opportunity to work with him and be part of his team! When not working, my husband and I enjoy spending time with friends and family, shooting, camping, hiking and going for walks by the river with our dog, Simon. Every fall we go hunting with friends for deer or moose. I am also quite involved with music, and much of my free time is spent practicing piano or voice. I also sing on the worship team at my church, so if you hear someone humming a song in the clinic, it is probably me!


Certified Dental Assistant – Orthodontic Module
It has been my pleasure working as an orthodontic assistant with Dr. Clawson's team since 1995. Over the years I have had the pleasure of attending several orthodontic conferences in Phoenix, Waikiki, Seattle and Palm Springs. Not only did we attend educational seminars, but we had great fun bonding as a team while snorkeling, visiting pineapple and date plantations, sun tanning on the beach and poolside and, of course, shopping! I have really enjoyed taking part in creating beautiful smiles for all the wonderful people we have seen in the office, and I look forward to assisting in the creation of many more!


I have been working for Dr. Clawson since 2005. I am married and have two kids. I enjoy spending time with family and friends. My daughter is involved in soccer, and I really enjoy watching her play.


I have been with Clawson Orthodontics since 2004! As the Front Desk Receptionist, I’m the first person that new and current patients see when they arrive for an appointment, and I wouldn’t have it any other way! I’m married and the grandmother to two wonderful girls.


Administrative Assistant
I have worked as a receptionist/administrative assistant for Dr. Clawson since 1995. I enjoy the busy environment of Clawson Orthodontics and being part of the team. I am married to Gary, and we have five adult children, seven grandchildren and two Persian cats, Minoo and Katy. In my spare time, I enjoy card making, teaching card making classes, cross stitching, spending time with my family and travelling. My favorite destinations are PEI in the summer and Hawaii in the winter.
