    Dr. Irina Smirnova

    Dr.Irina Smirnova lives in the Barrhaven community with her husband and two daughters. She has been part of the community for over 6 years. Dr.Irina was born in Siberia Russia and immigrated to the United States in 1999 where she attended New York University Dental School.
    After graduating in 2007, she completed a residency program at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. She moved with her family to Ottawa and enjoys everything Ottawa has to offer. Ottawa has the perfect balance of city life and suburbia.
    One of her long time hobbies is figure skating, which she began when she was five years old. Ottawa, having the longest skating rink in the world, is yet another reason why she loves this city.

    When it comes to practicing dentistry, she loves working with patients of all ages, especially children. One thing you will hear Dr.Irina say is: “I love to put a smile on my patients’ faces and I want my patients to feel satisfied with my work. I take pride in making my patients happy with their new smiles.”
    “I look forward to meeting new patients as well as their families. I think that it is important for my work to get to know the families of whom I treat. My passion for dentistry drives me to give my patients the very best care”. Dr. Irina says “I always believe in giving back to the community and I want to take excellent care of the smiles in Barrhaven.”

    Trevor Hammersley-Frazer

    I was born and raised in various parts of Ottawa from the East end to the West end. I now live in the West end of the city with my young family and dog. I have a son who is seven and a daughter who is four and am happily married to the world’s greatest spouse. I graduate from Algonquin College’s dental hygiene program in 2005. I have had many amazing opportunities in my career to help hone my skills as a hygienist and keep current with dental science and quality patient care. I am excited to work with Dr. Irina and look forward to helping her grow her practice and help her patients, young and old alike, with continued care, compassion, and a good sense of humour. In my off time I like to read (mostly science fiction, classics and comic books), spend time playing with my family, play video games, watching cartoons and horror movies, I often geek out and do math puzzles, draw, and cook.
