My name is Michelle Worton and I’d like to say a big HELLO from behind the mask!!! I started my practice in 2015 as a satellite clinic in a small, remote community. I began by first renting space from a health authority, but soon realized the expanding need for alternative preventative oral health care access. By September 2016, I had completed the PLAR via Thompson Rivers University in 2016 and became a 365 Exempt Registered Dental Hygienist. This designation most certainly removed barriers and provided my patients ease of accessing safe, effective, comprehensive care ALL in an inviting, innovative practice setting. In January 2017, I opened my single operatory stand-alone practice in Fort St. John, BC. Most recently I had to expand the practice into a three-chair dental hygiene clinic, with the evolution into a multidisciplinary wellness clinic. At Blooming Smiles, we have created a culture. We have created a practice where our patients feel valued and where they are an extension of a Blooming Smiles Family. The beginning was a shift. A shift in how the delivery of healthcare services can be provided when we recognize the connection between overall wellness and oral health.

If you are looking for a mentor or an advisor, I can assist you with starting your own practice, social
media impact within your community, branding and clinic design, practice management, PLAR
application and program support, as well as listed areas of expertise above.
