Doctor of Dental Medicine – Graduated University of Toronto 2006
When I was 12 years old, I started a course of braces to straighten my somewhat gnarly smile. After 2 years of braces and some very nice restorative/cosmetic dentistry, I had a healthy smile that changed my life! My outstanding experience as a dental patient proved to be very influential, as it easily allowed me to make the decision to become a dentist!
I am delighted to have become a partner at the Colwood Dental Group and take over the practice of Dr. Dave Mick. In the lead up to my February 2011 arrival at the clinic, Dave and I had some great conversations that demonstrated to us that I would be an ideal fit with the Group. Dave and I are ‘on the same page’ in terms of our desire to continue and evolve the solid dental care principles that have been established in the practice. The most important principle to me is, "Provide my patients with the same level of dental care that I would provide my own family".
A little more about me.... I was born and raised in Atlantic Canada and obtained my undergraduate science degree at Acadia University, Wolfville, Nova Scotia. I then pursued my dental education at the University of Toronto and graduated in 2006. I have practiced/served in Victoria, Edmonton, Kingston and Afghanistan, as a Dental Officer in the Canadian Forces. I enjoy sailing, road biking, travelling and golf..... although I am not as great a golfer as Dr. Mick!
I would like to thank you for such a warm welcome back to the greater Victoria area. I look forward to soon meeting with you in my dental chair!
