Dr. Binder prioritizes building a trusting and respectful relationship with his patients through open and honest communication.

Originally from a small town outside of Ottawa, Dr. Binder knew he wanted to practise dentistry in a similar community. Embrun was a perfect fit. Dr. Binder looks forward to meeting you and welcoming you and your family to Embrun Smiles Family Dentistry.

Josée Sauvé

Graduating from La Cité Collégiale with honours in Dental Hygiene, Josée has been practicing for over 20 years. Her career has brought her diverse experience in both general-dentistry, as well as in orthodontics. Josée grew up in the small town of Crysler, Ontario, where her mother still resides. In addition, Josée herself is a proud mother to her two young adults.

Outside of the Embrun dentist office, Josée enjoys finding both great coffee shops and new trails to ride her bike as an avid cyclist. Josée loves the mountains and finds delight in being able to ski and hike in her spare time. Josée is looking forward to working as part of the great team at Embrun Smiles Family Dentistry.
