She started at Pitt Meadows Dental clinic in 2013 as an associate dentist and quickly built a very strong connection with her patients from Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge. This led to her taking over the practice in 2016, when the previous owner retired.

Originally born and raised in Cameroon, Dr. Gisèle Awondzeko Fouellefack moved to Europe at younger age. She feels very blessed to have lived in different continents. It humbles her and allows her to connect and relate to other people regardless of their background. She finds her job very rewarding. She wakes up every day ready to go to work, knowing that she will care for her patients well being, while sharing a lot of laughter with them. She is a proud mother of two very active and dedicated young girls. Besides travelling, she also loves outdoor activities and enjoys spending time with friends and family.
