From the age of 14, Dr. Marshall knew she wanted to be in the dental profession. From a medical family, she volunteered as a lay dental assistant at the McGill University Faculty of Dentistry. She worked along side the 3rd and 4th year dental students during her summer and school holidays. Exposed to many aspects of clinical practice she fell in love with the idea of being able to practice art and science at the same time, as well as serving the health care needs of those around her. She attended Dalhousie University in Halifax and went on to receive her Bachelor of Science, Biology (1994), Bachelor of Arts, Psychology (1994) and her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree (2000) from the Faculty of Dentistry at Dalhousie University.
Dr. Marshall has had the privilege of practicing in Nova Scotia and in Alberta. In 2004, she and her young family settled in Hinton, AB where she purchased a practice and served the community for almost 10 years. In 2014 she successfully sold her practice and for the past 9 years she has continued to work in the Edmonton and Yellowhead regions as a locum and associate. Dr. Marshall is excited to meet the La Perle Dental patient family and be part of this caring team!
Outside of the office Dr. Marshall enjoys a variety of activities from adventuring with her family camping, horseback riding, and canoeing to more homey fun like cooking and watching movies.
