Dr. Jessica Bourassa - Sarnia OHTH Chair

The Toronto OHTH chapter was established September 2008 by Dr. A. Sigal and is currently led by the students and faculty from the University of Toronto, Faculty of Dentistry. Fellow University of Toronto graduate, Dr. Jessica Bourassa always enjoyed participating in the Toronto Sharing Smiles Day and with the support of her colleague and friend Dr. Sigal, she decided to start a chapter in her hometown, Sarnia, Ontario in 2015. Fellow dentist and twin sister, Vanessa Curran has been integral in planning the events.
The outreach events in Sarnia, including Sharing Smiles Day, brings in volunteers from several dental offices, showing the care that dental health professionals have in their community. If you are interested in volunteering and being a part of OHTH Sarnia, please contact us!


Sharing Smiles Day / Other OHTH Initiatives

April 2015 marked our first Annual Sharing Smiles Day event in Sarnia and it was a day to remember! Each year, we try to improve on the activities offered and hope to increase in turnout too! We would like to thank all of our volunteers, participants and sponsors. We would also like to thank Giresi’s Pizza for generously donating a great pizza lunch each year. Thanks also to Colgate for supplying all of our dental goody bags!

Positive energy and smiles absolutely fill the room during a day where new and continued relationships are fostered! It is our hope that the memories made will create a lifelong commitment to providing oral health care for all and enable each of us to be the difference that we would like to see in the world. We encourage everyone to always care for others with the utmost compassion and to continue sharing your smile each and everyday!

Our Sarnia OHTH Team cannot wait to host our next event and if you are interested in volunteering, attending or sponsoring Sharing Smiles Day – please contact Dr. Jess!

Fundraising Events

Since 2015, the Sarnia team was able to raise over $9000 through the support of local dental health care professionals. For our next SSD event, we will be putting more ideas into action – reaching out to the community and hope to continue fundraising for a great cause. Please stay tuned for more information!
