|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
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.
||Christina - Office Manager
I have been a resident of Welland my entire life, it is where I attended both elementary and high school. Upon completion of high school I graduated in 2003 from the Level II Dental Assistant program at Niagara College.
I have enjoyed being part of both the clinical and administrative aspects within my profession.
Aside from the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband, two young children and our dog named Meatball.
Dr. Dobson and I met when she first graduated in 2007 and I have had the pleasure of working alongside her, and thrilled to be a part of her growing practice. My goal is to provide patients with a genuine caring atmosphere focusing on patient care first!
||Laurie - Assistant
I graduated from the Niagara College Dental Assistant Program in 1990. After that, I continued my education at the University of Western Ontario where I obtained my Preventative Dental Assistant certificate.
I am a certified member of the Ontario Dental Assistants Association, and have continued my education through the years by attending many interesting courses and meetings.
Having worked as a Dental Assistant for over 25 years, I feel I am very fortunate to have met some wonderful people along the way, while gaining the skills and experience needed to fulfill the duties/responsibilities of my role. I genuinely love what I do and this is why I have continued to work as a Dental Assistant all these years.
In my free time I enjoy spending it with my husband and son, travelling, cycling, running, golfing and doing yoga.
I invite all my friends and family to come see what a great team we have at Dentistry In The Village for the absolute best care you could receive.
||Sarah - Hygienist
I grew up in Oakville but moved to the niagara area over 12 years ago where my husband and I now raise our two girls.
I started my dental career as an assistant where I worked for 5 years before deciding to go back to school for dental hygiene. I have been working for over 15 years as a dental hygienist. I enjoy interacting with my clients and educating them on maintaining good oral health.
In March of 2015 I had the pleasure of joining Dr. Dobson and her practice.
||Nina - Assistant
I moved to Niagara Falls when I was 5 years old, I am originally from Serbia.
I attended both elementary and high school in Niagara falls. After completing high school I applied to Niagara College for their Dental Assisting program. I knew I wanted to become an assistant after shadowing my older sister. In 2014 I graduated from the Level I and II Dental Assisting program at Niagara College.
I was originally hired by Dr. Kimberly Dobson to cover a maternity leave, for a year. In that year the office had expanded, Dr Dobson needed more hands to run her practice . This led to receiving a permanent position in Dr. Dobson’s Dental practice.
They say: “The secret of joy in work is contained in one word - excellence. To know how to do something well is to enjoy it.” I enjoy very much coming to work everyday and being apart of an amazing team.
In my free time I like to spend it with my family and friends. I also enjoy traveling, reading, running and dance.
