Meet Dr. D

Our Orthodontist – Dr. Ken Danyluk

Dr. Ken Danyluk, or “Dr. D” as he is affectionately known, is a dynamo, exuding warmth and care to everyone he meets.

“I believe very strongly in treating people the way I want to be treated; with courtesy, respect and attention to each individual’s needs.”

By combining his unique mix of energy, orthodontic expertise and a genuine concern for people, Dr. Danyluk is able to achieve one very simple goal for each and every person associated with our practice…an Extraordinary Orthodontic Experience!

Dr. Danyluk practiced as a general dentist for 7+ years before pursuing his specialty training in orthodontics. He uses his experience in general dentistry and orthodontics to provide his patients the ideal coordination of orthodontic and dental treatment. An open line of communication between your dentist and Dr. Danyluk means you will receive the highest level of dental care possible.

In addition to being a Certified Specialist in Orthodontics, Dr. Danyluk holds the additional distinction of being a Fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada. He is one of the few orthodontic specialists in North America that holds these qualifications.

When Dr. D is not creating healthy, great-looking smiles, he likes to spend his time with his wife, Jacquie, attempting to play golf, re-living his youth playing hockey, crooning on his guitar and enjoying the company of great friends.
