After graduating from the University of Toronto Doctor of Dental Surgery program, Dr. Gosnell spent a year as Pediatric Dental Resident at Toronto Hospital for Sick Children. The next half year was spent contracted to Health and Welfare Canada delivering dentistry to remote and underserved First Nations communities in Northwestern Ontario. From there, he was enticed to join a busy dental practice in Banff Alberta. The lure of small-town life took root as he moved to Banff, met his life partner and skiing buddy, Sharon. They raised 3 beautiful children in Banff and after 27 years of enjoying a prosperous and exciting dental practice and all the mountains have to offer, decided to move to Squamish to add the element of water to their lives. Sharon and Shawn opened Tantalus dental in 2006 and have never looked back. Dr. Gosnell is thrilled to be working in a small state of the art practice and welcome all the new technologies that make his task easier and patients more at ease. Their 3 children all moved to BC and oldest son and daughter live and work in Squamish. They are blessed with 2 amazing grandchildren who live a short bike ride away.
If Dr. Gosnell is not at the office, he's out windsurfing, cycling, skiing, running races for the Squamish yacht club or spending time with his grandkids.
Sharon manages both the big picture and day to day aspects of the practice. She brings enthusiasm and guidance as well as an empathetic kindness in all that she does. She loves Squamish and all that its outdoor lifestyle offers. You'll find her skate skiing and backcountry touring in the winter months - biking, gardening and hiking in the warmer months. She is an emphatic chef and loves entertaining friends and her gorgeous family including two exceptional grandchildren. Sharon pays keen attention to what's going on around her, so don't forget to floss your teeth, because she will know.
