I am the Dental Receptionist at Trenton Smiles. “You only get one chance to make a first impression: and your first impression is in the hands of the person who answers your phone call”. This has been my motto since I’ve been in this position. I really enjoy meeting new people, especially at work where I promise to give our clients dignity and respect, which is part of our office mission. My hobbies include singing in a church choir, keeping fit power walking, and enjoying nature at the cottage with my husband.

Throughout the years, she followed her military husband in various locations, which allowed her to work both in Canada and the United States and brings a wealth of experience to patient care. Her goal is to help everyone find success in oral health. She has two grown sons who, like their father, chose to become engineers. Sylvie loves to cook, socialize and organize neighborhood street barbecues.
