meet the team

Our team of dental professionals are looking forward to getting to know you and providing top of the line oral care services.

Dr. Kimberly Dobson
Dentist

As a patient you are my most important concern. My goal is to treat you with the utmost respect and empathy while providing the best care I can. I would love to be your partner in the life long journey of oral health.

I grew up in Fonthill, Ontario and I’m thrilled to be practicing dentistry in this beautiful town. I attended A. K. Wigg Public School and E. L. Crossley Secondary School before pursuing a degree in Neuroscience at Brock University. Combining my passions for people, science and health, as well as the enjoyment of working with my hands, I followed the road to dentistry. In 2007, I graduated from the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Toronto and began my career as an associate dentist. I am lucky to have worked with a number of skilled dentists over the years, and bring those experiences with me to my own practice.

I opened Dentistry in the Village in August 2012 and I’m very proud of our team of dental health professionals. I’m very fortunate to work with such a fantastic team.
