Perspectives on Working with Dentists
Olga feels that her initial experience in claims shaped her outlook on relationship building with her clients. Moving from claims to advisory services, she learned to manage clients’ expectations while providing the benefits of insurance to her clients. “I knew what claims could mean to clients; it could be challenging with a lot of emotions involved. I tell my clients that they need to be prepared for uncertainty. My goal is for them to never be in a situation where they need to make a claim without sufficient coverage.” Olga enjoys working with dentists discussing coverage options and conducting regular reviews of their coverage.
“A small premium is better than the cost of the loss that could happen. It is also a small price to pay for peace of mind throughout your career.”

Get insured for peace of mind. Insurance will protect you and your loved ones in moments of loss. Review your coverage regularly; for example, five years into your career, it is not advisable to maintain the same coverage that you acquired as a student.
“I am here to understand your goals and any restrictions that could prevent you from achieving those goals. Have a discussion with your advisor before cancelling your coverage, so together, we can figure out any number of ways to alleviate your financial pressure.”
Olga loves spending time and travelling with her family. For work and leisure, travelling has exposed her to some great food. Locally, she has had the best sushi in Vancouver and the best lobster in Nova Scotia. As a child, Olga travelled to several countries experiencing different cultures and appreciating new experiences.
