It is my goal to foster a strong doctor-patient relationship with each person who comes to Glasgow Orthodontics. I feel it is a privilege to be able to enrich someone’s life by helping to create a beautiful smile and ensure the person has a proper, functional bite. Orthodontics is the perfect mix of art and science, and I enjoy creating a balance between the teeth and the face, all while helping to craft a person’s unique signature smile. I pride myself on providing individualized personal care in which I see every patient at every appointment. It is both challenging and rewarding to be a part of this process.
Educated and continuing education
I received my dental degree from the University of Liverpool in 1991 and my Master of Science and diploma in orthodontics from the University of Manitoba in 1997.
My staff and I are committed to offering our patients the latest technologies and advancements in orthodontic treatment. We attend continuing education courses, both locally and nationally, on topics ranging from cosmetic services and treatment modalities to CPR, infection control, and computer imaging, which allows us to provide the most efficient and effective care.
In addition to my private practice, I am also currently a professor at the University of Western Ontario, Department of Graduate Orthodontics in the Faculty of Dentistry. Being in this educational environment has allowed me not only to be exposed to current research in orthodontics, but to interact with other orthodontists to discuss treatment options and trends in dentistry and orthodontics as well.
This year I was asked to host a co-op student from Elmira District Secondary School. As education is a passion of mine I welcomed her into the practice and hope she suceeds in her goal to become a dental hygienist.

Outside the office
I was born and raised in Sudbury, Ontario, and now reside in Waterloo, where I am enjoying getting to know the community and all that it has to offer. Originating from the north, I enjoy many outdoor pursuits, such as skiing, snowshoeing, and skating. Volunteer work is close to my heart and I am dedicated to raising funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation and the Princess Margaret Foundation. In fact, this summer I will be participating in my second 200km Ride for the Cure!
