Meet Shannon the Registered Dental Hygienist

Shannon

Registered Dental Hygienist

Hi everyone, I’m Shannon and I’m a dental hygienist! If you’re wondering why I became a dental hygienist, it’s because I have always been a compassionate and empathetic person, which led me to want to go into health sciences. Throughout my life, dental hygiene became more and more appealing to me as I always admired my own hygienist and she always told me how much she loved her career. I decided to apply to the University of British Columbia’s Dental Hygiene Degree Program, and thankfully got accepted, and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Dental Science.

Aside from work, I love shopping, going for long walks, and spending time with friends and family. I’m also a lover of all animals, but dogs hold a special place in my heart. Some of my hobbies include playing piano and guitar, and I can also speak French! I’ve lived in Vancouver my whole life, but I love traveling. A few of my favourite places to travel to are Disneyland and Hawaii. I’m excited to be a part of this team and look forward to meeting you during your dental hygiene appointments!”
