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 the 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 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 has been part of Dr. Loo’s clinical team Wednesday/Thursday and really enjoys working with patients again!
Outside of work, Silke loves spending time with her husband and their three wonderful children, Finn, Liv & Edda! Like every other mom, Silke finds herself now spending every weekend on soccer or baseball fields, in the gym, or in ballet classes :o) But she makes sure to get in some personal time, like when she meets up with her girlfriends, does yoga or explores the winter wonderland of Vancouver’s mountains at night: on skis or snowshoes!
