Changing lives, one smile at a time.

the new owner and operator of Confident Smiles Dental Hygiene and Tooth Whitening!!

Shannon is originally from Belleville, Ontario, where her parents and family still reside.  She decided at 29 years old to start travelling the world, experiencing different countries and culture along the way.  In her backpacking adventure she visited Australia, New Zealand, Asia, South America and Hawaii.  Four years ago, after much deliberation, she decided to make Ottawa her permanent home.

Shannon has worked in dental hygiene for nearly two decades. She has worked in Ontario, Alberta, and New Zealand in the dental profession.  In her private practices, she had many loyal patients request her by name.  In pursuit of her goals of charity and community outreach, she practiced in Alberta for a non-profit entity dedicated to helping underprivileged children and the less fortunate.  She will bring passion and enthusiasm for her work to her new patients at Confident Smiles Dental Hygiene.  She was inspired to move from private to independent hygiene practice to provide high quality care and to give back to her community.

Shannon is a fun-loving person who wants to make you feel at home and comfortable, no matter what your dental situation or history is.  She loves making life fun in any way she can. Creating beautiful smiles and making people have a relaxing and fun experience makes her day!

Shannon looks forward to meeting you and helping you create the smile of your dreams!
