Meet the Team

Welcome to Port Kennedy Central Dental Care! Our friendly, caring team is here to provide the affordable, high-quality care you need. We enjoy getting to know our patients and making sure that they enjoy their time spent in our relaxing atmosphere. Get to know a bit more about us below!

Metta Hayribetoglu, Patient Coordinator

Metta, Patient CoordinatorMetta is the Director of Port Kennedy Central Dental Care. Anyone who knows her, knows that she will always go above and beyond to ensure that all patient’s experience the very best customer care and service at all times. Metta actively practices in the role of the Patient Care Coordinator, making sure that every step of the way her patients are fully informed and taken care of. We like to ensure our patients are comfortable and taken care of while waiting for their appointment, which is why we ask all patients if they would like a coffee or tea while they wait, and provide a comfortable and relaxing setting.

I want my patients to feel like they have had an experience not just an appointment”.

Metta believes there is a solution for every situation. The two main reasons people fear the dentist is the pain and the cost! She believes the team at PKC Dental Care conquer both of those fears. Most patients report they felt no pain throughout their procedure and are very pleasantly surprised at our fees too! When not at Port Kennedy Central Dental Care (which is hardly ever) Metta enjoys life with family.
