Sandy Armitage Dip. DH, RDH
Sandy Armitage has been a Registered Dental Hygienist for the past 9 years. Originally from South Western Ontario, she pursued her Dental Hygiene Diploma from St. Clair College in Windsor Ontario. Shortly after completing the National Board exam she felt the strong need and desire to move to the West Coast.
Sandy is now a proud and active member of the British Columbia Dental Hygienists Association, the College of Dental Hygienists of British Columbia and the Tri Cities Study Club. In 2006 she completed her Local Anaesthesia Certification from the University of British Columbia and she continually stays up to date with current research and courses. Sandy believes it is critical to stay continually educated with research based studies to better serve her patients with the highest quality standard of care she feels everyone should have access to. She genuinely believes that your oral health is a window to your overall health and she proactively educates this uniquely and personally with all her patients. Sandy knows that no two patients are the same and everyone has there own specific oral health requirements as well as personal preferences. As a Dental Hygienist she wants to provide all these needs fully to allow for a more comfortable, memorable and efficient hygiene experience.
Over the past few years Sandy have been volunteering with an organization called Kindness in Action. Sandy has traveled to Peru and Uganda providing preventive and emergency dental hygiene services. "This organization gives me the opportunity to give back to my profession, travel and meet other like minded dental professionals", says Sandy.
Sandy enjoys traveling, hiking, hot yoga, kayaking, mountain biking, skiing and pretty much everything else outdoors!
Sandy has been working at the clinic for 5 years now and says, "It has been a blessing and privilege for me to be working with Mary Ellen and Pam at Victoria's Dental Hygiene Clinic. I look forward to the days I will be practicing in the office and can't wait to meet you in person!"
