Eileen has been passionately involved in dentistry for over 55 years. Her experience left an impression on both her mind and heart and gave new meaning to ‘the gift of a smile’. Eileen pursued her education at both the university and college levels spanning courses in business, accounting, human resources, and conflict resolution.
Eileen rose through the ranks from dental clinic manager to a management position in a large DSO in the late ‘80’s. She then went on to become the founder of Peers Associated Professional Dental Group Ltd. currently known as Dental Peers, now owned and operated by her son Shawn Peers. She is the Founder and Executive Director of the Ottawa Women Dentists Study Club.
The next step in her life of finding ways to support Women in Dentistry began in 2017 when after a conversation with Linda Miles, she established The Golden Girls Of Dentistry.
Eileen enjoys a complete and balanced lifestyle with her husband Les of over 50 years, her son and business partner Shawn, her daughter-in-law Jimena and her two wonderful grandchildren Adrian and Natalia.
