Meet Our Stirling Staff

Staff photo

In our more than 30 years of service to Stirling and the surrounding areas, Stirling Dental Centre has become a dental practice known for excellence. Our reputation didn’t come about by chance; it took many years of education, applied knowledge and of course — having the right people at our practice.


As a family dental practice, you will be greeted with a warm welcome whenever you visit Stirling Dental Centre. Our administrative staff will then ask you to complete some fairly typical “getting to know you” forms. These forms are invaluable to our practice as they allow us to learn about your medical history, as well as contact information and any dental insurance you may carry.

Read on to learn more about our Stirling dentists and staff.
