DR. KELLY DAVIDOFF, DMD
Dr. Kelly Davidoff grew up in Castlegar, BC. She fell in love with Dentistry at the age of 14 and worked in all areas of the practice where her mom had been a receptionist for 20 years. She chose to pursue becoming a dental hygienist and started her career there, while continuing her studies and graduating as a dentist from UBC in 2007. You could say the stars aligned for her when she had an opportunity to open a practice here in Nelson, as it all happened very serendipitously.
A true Kootenay native, she is very passionate about serving this community through her talents as a dentist and is especially fond of working with children and improving people's smiles. One of her greatest joys is having a successful visit with a child and giving them her famous prizes from the toy chest! Her kind, gentle and compassionate approach to her work is what sets her apart in the field. She regularly works with patients who have fears of dentistry and helps them to overcome it.
When she isn’t at her practice with her extraordinary staff,
Dr. Davidoff enjoys yoga, travel, playing golf and raising funds for her late brother Dan Davidoff's Legacy fund via the Osprey Community Foundation. She is a firm believer in the power of meditation, and has a strong daily practice to enable her to serve our beautiful town to her highest potential.

Dr. Kurt Young, DDS
