Dr. Cynthia Simon
Dr. Simon drew inspiration from her own dentist in Sudbury, Ontario when she decided to pursue a career in dentistry. She began her journey of lifelong learning by obtaining her B.Sc. with honours at Laurentian University, before studying dentistry at l’Université de Montréal. She graduated with her D.M.D. (Doctorate of Dental Medicine) in 1997, & along with her classmate Dr. Kyra de Gouw, decided to open the Hazeldean Family Dental Centre in Kanata. She enjoys most aspects of general, preventive & cosmetic dentistry, & attends a wide variety of continuing education courses on a regular basis. Of particular interest to her, is how breathing disorders in children can negatively impact growth & development of the jaws & lead to crooked teeth. She began taking courses on the subject in 2007 and is pleased to be able to offer early orthodontics & Myobrace treatment to her young patients & Invisalign to her teen & adult patients.
Dr. Simon feels privileged to have had the opportunity to serve the community of Kanata for the past 20 years. Her patients & her amazing staff inspire her every day & she continues to love meeting & getting to know new families & helping them achieve healthy, beautiful smiles.
