Dr. Stefanuto grew up in Ontario and also studied there, attending the University of Western Ontario for her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree and graduated with the gold medal as the top scholar in her class. After completing a year of residency at the London Health Sciences Centre focused primarily on oral and maxillofacial surgery, Dr. Stefanuto joined a family dentistry practice. Over time her love for orthodontics grew, and she decided to return to her studies. Dr. Stefanuto was accepted into the highly competitive 3-year Master of Clinical Dentistry program at the University of Western Ontario and has been wholeheartedly enjoying practicing orthodontics for the last 5 years in Atlantic Canada. However, the allure of the mountains precipitated her recent move to Western Canada. She has recently relocated to beautiful Kamloops with her husband (who is an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon), two young daughters, and Bernese Mountain Dog. When she is not working you can find her at various activities with her girls, or exploring the great outdoors in this amazing part of the country!
Dr. Stefanuto has successfully challenged the exams required to become a fellow of the Royal College of Dentistry (F.R.C.D.(C)) and is a member of both the Canadian Association of Orthodontics (C.A.O.) and the American Association of Orthodontics (A.A.O.).
Dr. Stefanuto has extensive experience working with Invisalign and conventional braces in addition to the most complex surgical orthodontic cases. She has worked with patients age 4 to 74, patients who have never seen an orthodontist, and those who would like to make changes for a second time. She can address concerns regarding growth and development of the jaws, teeth, and bite, and help patients with a broad range of dental needs achieve comfort and happiness with their smile and function of their teeth.
We pride ourselves in providing quality, individually-tailored care in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. We are honoured that our clients have chosen us for their orthodontics needs, and we do our best to make sure that every visit to our office is an enjoyable one. We believe that the best smiles are the ones that are created from the inside out!
