Get to Know the People on Preston

Dr. Karen MacDonald, DDS

“During my third year of pharmacy studies I started to think about what I really wanted to do. I wanted to be more hands on with patient care. I worked for a year, applied to dental school. Now I’m here.”

“We are not a hard sell dentist office. We advise you of what we think is best for you in terms of care. We realize you may not be able to afford it at this moment. If it’s something you’re interested in doing in the future we’ll try and preserve what we can so you can work towards it. Or, if it’s not something you’re interested in we’ll give you the other options that are available.”

“I’ve been in Ottawa for 25 years now. I still see some of the patients I was seeing when I first came, so I feel like I’m part of their family. I’m getting to meet grandchildren. No great grandchildren yet, thank heavens [laughs]. The first child I worked on when she was three, I call her my first real pediatric patient, is having a baby so I’m looking forward to being that baby’s dentist.”

“We know a fair number of the businesspeople on the street. We frequent their establishments. You can’t walk too far without seeing someone you need to say hello to and who smiles back at the same time. I’m from the east coast so it’s kind of like home.”
