Our Staff

Drs Bennett and Jost are very proud to introduce their staff: Carolyn, Laurie, Debbie, Jackie, Jennifer, Nicole and Meghan. They have over 35 years combined experience in the provision of optical services including frame and lens selection, instruction in the handling of contact lenses and the fitting of spectacle lenses into frames using our state of the art computerized edging lab.

Carolyn, Laurie and Debbie meet regularly with frame company representatives to select the most contemporary designs in eyewear and as a consequence are very active in the dispensary with patients. Debbie and Laurie are also invaluable as edging technicians in our lab. Jackie and Jennifer are well versed in all aspects of dispensing and contact lens training as well as patient welcoming and reception. Nicole and Meghan are indispensable at the front desk and on the telephones. We are also very proud that Carolyn, Laurie, Debbie, Jackie and Jennifer have successfully completed rigorous training to earn the designation Canadian Certified Optometric Assistant.

We cannot stress enough how indebted we are to our employees for their role in building the practice and servicing our patients. They are our most valuable resource.
