Shalene | Calgary
Thirteen years ago, fuelled by a dream to provide outstanding client care and dramatically transform smiles, I started UltraWhite Clinic! Still today, my greatest joy is witnessing the reactions of clients after their treatment. I am most passionate about leading and working with our incredible team, whose dedication mirrors my own commitment to excellence. Beyond the clinic, most of my time is spent with my partner and two sons, all enthusiastic entrepreneurs, where our discussions on the golf course, on a hiking trail or around the table often revolve around exciting new business ideas. Equally close to my heart is the time spent with my lil fur babies, providing a perfect balance to my busy professional life.
Nicola | Calgary
I have been an enthusiastic and dedicated member of UltraWhite Clinic since their launch in Calgary in 2019. Witnessing the transformative power of a confident smile is the heart and soul of my work. The journey from the initial consultation to the moment our client sees their brighter, more radiant smile is filled with anticipation, and being a part of that experience is truly fulfilling. When I'm not in the clinic brightening smiles, you'll find me planning our next family trip, researching camping/hiking destinations, or simply enjoying quality time with my husband, two young girls and puppy!
DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS
Mona | Calgary
I am a seasoned executive with an extensive background in the retail and corporate industry. Some of the roles I have held are Chief Operating Officer and Consulting for Business Development in various capacities. Part of my job was travelling to meet clients and other business owners so I understand how important a bright warm smile can be! Smile and the world smiles with you, is something I believe in. Having a bright smile builds confidence, helps break the ice, elevates the mood and gives you a sense of well being! What actor/actress would play you in a movie about your life? If there was an actress or character that would best represent me would be Angelina Jolie in Maleficent. A girl that is fearless, kind , but sometimes misunderstood. Plus who doesn't love an old fashioned curse!
Olivia | Calgary
Hi, I'm Olivia! I have been with the UltraWhite Calgary team since 2021. I am originally from Worcester, England, but I have called Calgary home for several years. Throughout my tenure with UltraWhite Clinic, I have had the privilege of engaging with a diverse array of clients, each encounter bringing its own unique charm. Among my favorites are the moments spent with brides and grooms, new parents, couples and, honestly, those clients who are initially skeptical of the wonders and magic behind teeth whitening. Witnessing their genuine reactions – the radiant smiles, laughter, and occasional happy tears are magical. Being able to play a small role in someone else's confidence has lifted me up in unexplainable ways and is probably the most rewarding thing about this job. I love what I do and am so thankful that UltraWhite provides a positive atmosphere where I can thrive and excel. I work with the best girls, interact and chat with our amazing tenants, and have built many exceptional relationships with our fantastic clientele. Here's to many more years of creating smiles, spreading confidence, and creating long-lasting relationships at UltraWhite Clinic! When I am not at work, you can find me snowboarding with my boyfriend, immersed in my post-secondary studies, playing and snuggling with my two cats, Greyson and Chili, or hanging out with my friends and family!
Brittany | Calgary
My passion for connection and making people look and feel their best has led me to the beauty industry in 2018! I am dedicated to the UltraWhite goal of boosting people's confidence, one smile at a time! My approach to connecting with clients is personal and intentional, which you are guaranteed to experience with our team here at UltraWhite Clinic! Not only do I love brightening our clients' smiles, but I also appreciate the relationships that are built throughout the process. When not in the clinic, I am typically found exploring the city with friends, attending a fitness class or traveling out of the city to spend time with family! What actor/actress would play you in a movie about your life? I would definitely choose Melissa McCarthy. I love a good laugh and appreciate the way she effortlessly adds humor to every comedy role she plays.
Taryn | Calgary
I have been working for Ultra White Clinic since 2022. I remember after my first interview with Shay, I knew how much I wanted to work for UltraWhite- I could see how deeply she cared about her business and clientele; her passion for it all was really refreshing and quite motivating. My favourite part of the job is seeing the clients reaction and happiness following their treatment, when they look in the mirror and are totally smitten with their new smile! It's a win-win situation; how can you not be happy seeing someone else happy when you are a part of bringing out that joy and confidence! Outside of work, most of my time is spent on my post-secondary studies; aside from that, I also really enjoy reading, puzzles, following along with my favourite shows, and being outside spending time with those I love. What actor/actress would play you in a movie about your life? ANGELINA JOLIE FOREVER. Circa the late 90's/early 2000's to be specific!
Sara | Calgary
What I love most about my role within the clinic is the opportunity to be a part of each client's smile transformation journey. The ability to enhance not only the physical appearance but also the self-esteem and overall well-being of my clients is incredibly rewarding. My favourite part of the process is building a connection with each individual and ensuring they feel comfortable throughout the treatment. Outside the clinic, you might find me immersed in the world of holistic nutrition and Chinese medicine. This interest reflects my belief in the importance of considering multiple perspectives and finding individualized approaches to health and wellness. What actor/actress would play you in a movie about your life? Maybe Jennifer Aniston (Friends Era), because she’s relatable and a timeless actress.
Taylor | Edmonton
My most favourite part of being a whitening tech at UltraWhite is how lucky and honoured I am to be part of boosting one’s confidence.! They say “ a smile is your best accessory”. Truly nothing makes my day more exciting than having a happy client walk away with their radiating smile. A fun fact about me is, I have no art skills nor am I musical! However…. I can absolutely plan any party and cater for any occasion. I have a huge passion for creating new appetizers and I’m known for putting together a wicked charcuterie board! What actor/actress would play you in a movie about your life? The actress/celebrity that would play me in a movie would have to be, Khloe Kardashian. Khloe would have a great representation of my extroverted personality type, highly energetic, and a brutally honest but rational way of thinking. I think Khloe would best suit my character for my love for fashion and beauty.
Trinity | Edmonton
I find immense fulfillment in pursuing organizational excellence and upholding top–notch standards. By consistently striving for excellence, I believe we create an environment that meets and exceeds our client’s expectations. Each step towards excellence is an opportunity to uplift the organization and provide our clients with an exceptional experience that reflects our commitment to their needs and aspirations. Something unique about me is that I love to travel. This summer I spent time travelling through Asia and enjoyed every second of my journey. The list of places I desire to travel to is ever-evolving. To me, travelling is an invaluable form of education. As I continue to travel and learn more, the more I realize I don’t know, and the more I desire to travel! What actor/actress would play you in a movie about your life? In a movie about my life, I would play Willy Wonka. Willy Wonka is enthusiastic and is always excited by out-of-the-box concepts. He is also spontaneous and loves taking risks. Like myself, Wonka aims to maintain childlike wonder while dominating business. Willy Wonka believes what makes you different makes you great! I believe in chasing what excites you!
Jen | Saskatoon
Hello, my name is Jenn; I joined the UltraWhite clinic in early 2023. I studied and worked as a dental assistant but shifted my focus towards cosmetic dental. In my new role as a whitening technician, my favourite part is watching my client’s confidence grow because of their improved smile. Outside of UltraWhite Clinic, I dabble in DIY projects. I have an eye for seeing the potential in ordinary things and making them look new again. What actor/actress would play you in a movie about your life? If I could have anyone play me in a movie, I’d have to choose my fav gal Kate McKinnon!
Leah | Saskatoon
Hey there, I'm Leah, a teeth whitening technician with a passion for creating beautiful smiles. Since early 2023, I've been helping people achieve a brighter, more confident smile. I love connecting with new clients and making their teeth whitening experience as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. Whether you are a first time client or have visited our team multiple times, I strive to provide a comfortable atmosphere. Fun fact: I was born in England, and although I have lived in Canada for most of my life, I will never get used to the Saskatchewan winter! (I write this while it is -31, brrr.) What actor/actress would play you in a movie about your life? If I could choose an actress to play me in a movie about my life I would go with Lily Collins, only partially due to wanting my life to resemble Emily in Paris, (Leah in Canada? less high heels & boulangeries, more mittens & Tim Hortons). Let's bring some brightness to your smile together!
