Dr. Katharine Waks
Meet Dr. Katharine Waks
D.D.S. | Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry
When Dr. Waks was young, she had oral surgery twice, braces twice, intensive jaw splint therapy and then permanent retainers (which she wears to this day!). Her two kids have also endured their share of dental ups and downs, including braces and oral surgery.
Thus, Dr. Waks came into dentistry with a mission. Her desire has always been to try and eliminate as much of the anxiety and pain as possible for patients. Call it a case of “been there, done that, don’t want others to suffer.” Dr. Waks tries to be approachable, detail-oriented and aesthetically minded.
Dr. Waks earned a Bachelor of Health Sciences (with distinction) at Western University, followed by a Doctor of Dental Surgery at the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry.
She also collects and creates art. When not working on a new piece, she is creating delicious meals with her family. She’s also an Apple Fitness, Madfit, and Beachbody aficionado, waking up at 5:30 am daily to get her work-out in before the day begins. Of course, she balances that out with regular Dairy Queen Oreo Blizzards.
