THE DENTAL HYGIENIST
After more than 20 years as a dental hygienist, I am as passionate as ever about my work.
I’m gentle, respectful and I never get tired of offering patients the best possible care.
Thank you for your confidence in me.
I joined the Passion Sourire team after graduating from Collège Maisonneuve in June 2011. I’m glad to be working in a clinic where patient comfort is the rule of thumb.
I treat every patient the same way I would want to be treated. Therefore, I am always mindful of my work and of your well-being.
I am good-natured and passionate about what I do. I look forward to meeting you!
Born in Northern Ontario, I moved to Québec at a young age to study with Les Grands Ballets Canadiens. Initially drawn to health through ballet, I discovered an early appreciation for overall well-being . My studies first led me through Kinetic Swedish sports massage, however it was upon discovering dental hygiene that I found my true passion. As a graduate of Dental Hygiene at John Abbott College, I’ve learned how oral health represents an important window to our overall health. As a mother and wife I also know the importance of family. At Passion Sourire I have found a second home, where together we can promote dental health as a vital part of our every day lives. I could not be more happy to work in an environment surrounded by genuinely kind, gifted and hardworking professionals. I am pleased to offer you my services and look forward to meeting you!
