Born and raised in Germany, Silke immigrated to Vancouver in 2004 together with her husband Michael.

Trained in orthodontics before moving she started working at University of British Columbia dental school two days after arriving at YVR airport. That was the day she met Dr. Loo! After two years of working together with Dr. Loo at UBC, Silke eventually started working part time in Dr. Loo’s private office, first as an office clerk. In May 2010 she obtained her license as a Certified Dental Assistant (CDA) and completed the orthodontic module program at UBC. Since then Silke is part of Dr. Loo’s clinical team Wednesday/Thursday and extremely enjoys working with patients again!


Outside work Silke love’s spending time with her husband and their three wonderful children Finn, Liv & Edda! As every other mom, Silke finds herself now spending every weekend on soccer- or baseball fields, in the gym or ballet classes :o) But she makes sure to get in some personal time as well when she meets up with her girlfriends, does yoga or explores the winter wonderland of Vancouver’s mountains at night: on skis or snowshoes!
