Cathy Winkler     Practice Manager

 

Cathy, born and raised in New York City, worked in the advertising and financial worlds until the six year long-distance relationship with David came to a tipping point when he popped the question on a holiday in Ireland. At that point she was already his dental patient and then she became his wife. Cathy moved to Windsor where David was already practicing dentistry and where she became the practice manager at a busy dental practice.

Combining that experience with the knowledge she gained going to the many, many dental conferences with David and, of course, her experiences as a dental patient, she hopes to make your experience at CastleView Dental the best it can be.
