Sharon Rivet

Registered Dental Hygienist

Sharon was born and raised in Sturgeon Falls. She started her dental career in 1988 after graduating from Canadore College. Over the years, she has participated in many continuing education courses which refined her technical, communication, and patient care skills. In 2008, the Crown Council of Dentistry presented Sharon with the “Hygienist of the Year” award in Nashville TN. It acknowledges excellence in the dental profession and is voted on by fellow hygienists from across North America.

Sharon is thrilled to be able to work with Dr. Hoffman and his amazing, caring team at Gateway Dental. She embraces his philosophy on patient care and believes that by sharing her knowledge, she can help her patients make the best decisions to become healthier overall.

Sharon is renowned for her thoroughness and attention to detail. Dr. Hoffman (with a smile on his face) always tells her patients that “Sharon moves the fridge and stove every time she cleans her kitchen”. They understand what he means.

Sharon and her husband Joff enjoy spending hot summer days entertaining around their pool. In the winter, they are season ticket holders of the North Bay Battalion – “Go Troops Go!!”. Their son Liam is enrolled in the Business Program at Nipissing University.
