Dr. Saxby joined our practice in 2019. She grew up in Bridgewater and returned home to practice dentistry as a way to give back to her community and raise her family.
She attended the Memorial University of Newfoundland and graduated in 2009. After MUN she went on to go to dental school at Dalhousie University, where she graduated in 2014. At Dal she received the CFAO Award for Achievement in Undergraduate Orthodontics for outstanding achievement in the study of orthodontics. She was also her class treasurer. During her time at Dalhousie she volunteered by providing dental services in Northern Labrador and at the North End Clinic, providing care for those in need.
After graduation, Dr. Saxby went into private practice in Grand Falls-Windsor, Newfoundland from 2014 to 2016. She returned to Bridgewater in 2016, where she worked in private practice before joining Gatchell Dentistry.
Dr. Saxby is passionate about implant dentistry, aesthetic dentistry, and orthodontics. She also enjoys working with anxious patients to help them become comfortable with dental treatments. She has completed her Invisalign® certification and the training necessary for certification to place and restore dental implants. Dr. Saxby is a member of the South Shore Dental Society, Spear Education and CEREC Doctors.
As a Bridgewater native, she loves being a dentist in an area where she has a personal connection with almost every patient she meets. She and her husband James have two sons and they spend most of their free time at the beach. She loves camping, gardening, travelling, and eating and learning to cook international foods (especially Thai food). She’s addicted to cooking shows and she loves to lounge in her hammock with a book when she can find the time. She can’t get enough of watching her boys explore and seeing their personalities develop as they grow up.
