Dr. Amanda Sigouin is excited to be joining Dr. Andrew Macdonnell and the team at the Advance Dental Group! She was born and raised in the lower mainland, but is thrilled to be in the beautiful Okanagan. The positive experiences she had with both her dentist and orthodontist growing up played a big part in her choosing a career in dentistry.
She began her advanced education with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology at Simon Fraser University, where she graduated with First Class Distinction Honours. Immediately following her undergraduate degree, she was accepted into the Doctor of Dental Medicine program at the University of British Columbia. Dr. Sigouin’s hard work and dedication to her studies resulted in recognition of her academic achievement including the Dean’s Honour Roll, The Academy of General Dentistry; British Columbia Chapter Prize, The American College of Prosthodontist Undergraduate Achievement Prize and the Dr. Earl Ellison Prize.
One of Dr. Amanda’s main objectives as a dentist is to build great rapport with her patients and provide them with a positive experience. In addition, educating her patients on the importance of preventative oral health care is one of her main focuses. Dr. Amanda is dedicated to continuing her education and enjoys learning the newest and most advanced techniques in dentistry.
When she is away from the office, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends. As well as giving back to her community where she volunteers her time with local organizations. Her favorite hobbies include nature photography, exploring the great outdoors, cooking up new recipes in the kitchen, or curling up with a good book.
Dr. Amanda looks forward to meeting you at the Advance Dental Group!
