Dr. Azhar Pardhan



As a high school student, I was fascinated with the sciences and numbers. In university, I decided to major in mathematics while studying the sciences as I had already come to the conclusion that I wanted to become a dentist. I graduated from the University of Toronto in 1996 and had the unique opportunity to do my residency training in New York City at the world-renowned Mt. Sinai Hospital where I was awarded the Prosthodontic Award. Armed with practical experience and the theoretical business background, my partner and I purchased a small practice in Carp where we worked together for 15 years.


Over my 20+ years, I have honed my clinical skills but, most importantly, I have developed a passion for interacting with my amazing patients and helping them achieve their oral health goals. Clinically, my focus has evolved steadily through training under mentors like Drs. Peter Dawson, Carl Misch, John Kois, and Pat Allen. Even today, I continue to focus on various surgical procedures from complicated extractions, bone grafts, periodontal surgery, soft tissue grafts, and complex rehabilitations of patient’s smiles and jaw relationships.

I’m Ashleigh, I’ve been with Aqua since October 2014. I take a lot of pride in providing a positive and fun dental experience! I bring a very outgoing personality to our appointments together and love getting to know you! I treat all patients based on their individual needs, I feel that it is important to establish a great rapport, giving you the confidence you need for us to work together to better your dental health!


I graduated from the Canadian National Institute of Health (CNIH) in March 2014. I am the proud recipient of the Canadian Dental Hygiene award, which awards you for outstanding scholastics, leadership and clinical skills. I was the chair of the student committee and student representative for my graduating class.


When I am not at Aqua Dental, you can catch me spending time with my husband and cuddling my pets. I love to catch up on a great book or spend time planning my next big trip!


I look forward to meeting you and your family at our next appointment together!



RDH (Registered Dental Hygienist)

Hi, my name is Jasmine,


After earning my diploma of Dental Hygiene in 2016 from Canadian National Institute of Health I entered the dental world to explore my passion for health and education. I love staying current and up to date on the latest information and techniques.


I pride myself on bringing positive energy and ensuring I can meet each patient’s individual needs. I love seeing kids and introducing them to the dental office. I strive to make it a fun and happy appointment by creating a positive experience that is tailored to each child’s need.


In my spare time I enjoy going to my family cottage, planning my next trip, reading a good book and doing yoga. I’m currently working on my yoga teacher training certificate and planning my wedding. I look forward to getting to know each of my patients and making sure they leave with a healthy, happy smile 




RDH (Registered Dental Hygienist)

Hi there, my name is Sandra.  I am the most recent addition to the Aqua Dental hygiene team as of November 2019.  And what a great team I have become a part of!  It is a pleasure coming in to work each day, as the entire team are so warm and cheerful, and share my desire to provide caring, current and thorough care to each patient that walks through the door.  I greatly value a team that works together to ensure that the office runs smoothly, and have been fortunate enough to find that here!

After staying home with my 2 daughters when they were young, I decided to go back to school, and graduated with honours from the Algonquin College Dental Hygiene program in 2007.  Throughout my entire career, I have maintained memberships with the Canadian Dental Hygienist Association, the Ontario Dental Hygienist Association and the Ottawa Dental Hygienists Society. 

I now have over 13 years of clinical experience dealing in all facets of dental hygiene care, and with a wide range of patients. In 2018, I spent some time working as a Clinician for the Algonquin College Dental Hygiene program, and greatly enjoyed working with the students.  However, I found that one on one encounters with my patients suited me better, and so returned to full time work at a dental office.  I feel it is very important to treat each patient as required based on their specific individual needs, and my goal is to promote and maintain optimal oral health. Education and confirmation of patient understanding are of great importance to me.  I particularly enjoy the challenge of helping ease any anxiety an individual may bring to the chair. I desire to help them to feel that a visit to the dental office can be a positive experience. 

In my free time, I enjoy walking through the woods with my husband, cycling, gardening, cross country skiing, cooking, and anything to do with music!

I have enjoyed meeting many of you so far, and look forward to meeting many more!

Hello, my name is Carrie.
