Biography

I graduated from the University of Western Ontario in 2014 with a Bachelor of Medical Science Honours degree. I then continued on at Western's Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry to earn my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2018. I have a caring demeanour and am dedicated to ensuring my patients have a positive dental experience every time they step into our office.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

Patients should choose me as their provider because I consider myself to be approachable, friendly and caring. I focus on patient oriented dental care, providing detailed options and explanations for any questions/concerns/treatments my patient may have, with treatment options tailored to that individual.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

The top three treatments I focus on are comprehensive care (caries/cavity management with fillings, maintenance of good oral health, patient educations); root canal therapy (always trying to save the tooth, if possible); and extractions (if the tooth is unrestorable or if the patient wishes to have the tooth removed after an informed explanation of treatment options).

What are you proud of in your practice?

In our practice, I'm proud of being able to provide dental treatments in-house for our patients. We have state of the art technology and dedicated team members, allowing us to provide the highest quality dental care each patient deserves.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I enjoy treating patient's' chief complaint or concerns. When my patients are happy and satisfied with the result of their treatment, that brings an additional satisfaction to the dental work I provide for them. I also enjoy treating cavities with basic composite restorations - having the ability to prevent cavities from progressing with more conservative filings to promote good oral health and maintenance of teeth before more aggressive forms of treatment are needed (root canals or extractions). Aesthetic cases are always fun as well - seeing my patients happier with their smile is very rewarding, both for the patient and myself.

    Katherine was great and knowledgeable! I only take off one star because the assistant I had seemed inexperienced - when she was examining my mouth she hurt me a couple of times and also took flash photography of my mouth about 2 inches from my eyes. The xray device also didn't look the cleanest. Other than that all the staff were great!

    Was the most comprehensive description of my oral state I have ever gotten. The process of basically going over every single part of my mouth to understand potential areas of concern was amazing and will allow me to make sounds judgments going forward.

    After a very long lapse in dental care, I’ve been anxious and nervous about seeing a dentist at all. The hygienists and assistants were gentle and put me at ease. Dr. Park addressed my concerns and explained her recommended treatments to me clearly and without judgement. I will be seeing her again.

    My appointment was not with Dr. Park, but with one of the hygienists. I was unable to get the slot I had initially selected on Opencare, but the clinic was very prompt in providing an alternate time. On the day of my appointment, I arrived and completed all the patient privacy and past medical/dental history forms. My hygienist was thorough in explaining each procedure, even though it was a routine cleaning and checked in periodically to make sure I was comfortable throughout my appointment. Bonus: They have a ceiling mounted TV for watching Netflix during your procedure :)
