Dr Sharon Wagener

My family immigrated to Canada from England in 1968. We settled in the Village of Stanley, where my two brothers, sister, and I attended school. I completed my BSc and DDS degrees at McGill University in Montreal from 1977-1984.

I moved back to New Brunswick in 1984 to practice dentistry while my husband Dale MacFarlane started his Land Surveying business. We both felt fortunate to raise our son Benjamin and daughter Bethany in the community of Woodstock.  The town is small enough that neighbours are familiar with one another while still able to provide ample opportunities for individuals and young families in the arts, sports, and leisure activities.

My practice is founded in continuing education and staying current with digital and technological developments within the field. Computers, lasers, and other modern advancements have significantly improved the service that we can give our patients, whether in Laser Bleaching and Laser TMJ treatments, Cerec dentistry, or digital record keeping.

Aside from enjoying my family and work life, I am currently serving on a committee supporting the Healthy Smiles Program with NBDS, along with being an active member in the St. James United Church. I also have, and am serving on committees helping refugees transition to our region from other countries. As I am a landed immigrant who gained citizenship in 1977, I feel fortunate to be able to enjoy all the benefits Canada has to offer. I am passionate about sharing the safety and beauty with others that this country provides.

Joy

I joined Dr. Wagener’s team in 1992 as her receptionist. I enjoy all aspects of my job but especially meeting and getting to know our patients. My previous work in banking and secretarial positions gave me a background that transitioned nicely for a dental office. In my spare time I enjoy reading, and spending time with family.

I graduated from the Dental Assisting Program at Holland College in Prince Edward Island in June 1997, and have been an enthusiastic team member at Dr. Wagener’s office since that time. In my free time, I enjoy reading, RV-ing, and spending time with my family.
