Meet Dr. Chris Baldwin
Dr. Chris Baldwin did his undergraduate studies at the University of Windsor, completing an honours degree in biology and a minor in biochemistry. Dr. Baldwin studied dentistry at University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry, where he graduated in 2002 in the top 10 % of his class and received an award for oral pathology. He has practiced dentistry since 2002 and moved to Dryden in 2009. After associating for 10 years, Dr. Baldwin opened his dental practice on King Street in August 2012. During his time off, he enjoys fishing,
four-wheeling and taking care of his beloved pets.
Dental Hygienist and Office Manager
I continue to have a fulfilling career in the dental field. I graduated from the Dental Assisting and Dental Hygiene Programs at St. Clair College in Windsor, Ontario. In 2014, I received a certificate in recognition of 25 years of continuous membership in the Ontario Dental Hygienists Association. Recently, I also received from the Canadian Dental Hygiene Association my 25-year recognition certificate and silver commemorative pin.
I had the unique experience of helping Dr. Baldwin to set up his first dental practice, known as King Street Family Dental. This experience included the positions of Dr. Baldwin’s first employed dental hygienist and office manager. Due to the continued growth of the practice, years later I continue to work part-time as a Dental Hygienist; however, I spend the majority of the week fulfilling the office manager role.
I am a native of Northwestern Ontario, as I was born and raised in Red Lake and have lived in Kenora, Thunder Bay and Dryden since 2000. I have celebrated my 25th wedding anniversary and have two adult children plus a dog. I look forward to continuing to work with Dr. Baldwin and the King Street Family Dental team.
I was raised in the Ottawa area and moved to Northwestern Ontario over 30 years ago. I spent 12 years in Sioux Lookout, working for the dental department at the Menoyawin Health Centre and then relocated to Dryden in 2001 because of my husband’s job. I worked as a Dental Hygienist for Dr. Keith Eichel for 15 years and when he retired in 2015, moved over to King Street Family Dental on a permanent basis. I married my college sweetheart, Ken, over 27 years ago. We have two sons, Josh and Geoff. When I’m not at work, I enjoy walking, playing golf, baseball, curling and kayaking. I’ve always found the dental field to be a rewarding career. I get to meet a lot of different people, and I value the professional relationships I’ve developed with my clients over the years. I’m pleased to be part of an excellent team at King Street Family Dental. I look forward to meeting new clients, and I’m always pleased to see my returning ones!
I was born and raised in Dryden, Ontario. I graduated from the Confederation College program of Dental Hygiene in 2015 with First Class Standing. I had worked at another Dryden clinic while in school, doing reception and sterilization, and after graduation began working as a receptionist and hygienist with the same clinical staff. I worked temporarily as a float assistant and enjoyed learning different areas of the Dental field, but I am very pleased to have joined the King Street Family Dental team as a part-time Dental Hygienist in December 2016.
I am the Dental Receptionist and Health and Safety Representative at King Street Family Dental and have worked with Dr. Baldwin since his move to Dryden in 2009. With experience in dental assisting, reception, administration and health and safety, I am very knowledgeable in dental procedures, treatment planning, dental insurance, scheduling and am proud to be a part of the King Street Family Dental team.
I graduated from college in 1994 taking General Arts and Developmental Services Worker courses and returned to college in 2009 to obtain my H.A.R.P. approved Dental Radiography Certificate due to a new found interest in the dental field. I am a certified First Responder with Red Cross and spent many years volunteering for the Machin Fire Department.
Growing up in the area and living on acreage with my husband and daughters, you will usually find me horseback riding, camping, snowshoeing, kayaking and enjoying this beautiful area of Northwestern Ontario that we live in!
We thank Jana for her time and hard work with our team at King Street Family Dental. We regret to announce that Jana has the opportunity to have a career change and will be leaving our team. We are very grateful for Jana and her expertise to help King Street Family Dental from day one. We wish her and her family only the best.
Part-Time Dental Assistant
I graduated from the Dental Assisting Program at Confederation College in Thunder Bay in 2004. After graduation I worked in a private practice in Kenora until 2007, when I moved to Winnipeg, and worked in a large practice. My main role within the large practice was working in the specialty group as a Periodontal Assistant. I also assisted for courses offered through a partnership with a predominant dental implant technology company, and taught surgical/sterile set-up procedures. I was also provided with the opportunity to work as a short-notice assistant at the University of Manitoba - Faculty of Dentistry, Grad Perio Clinic. In 2011, I returned to Dryden, and obtained my real estate license in early 2012. After the arrival of my son in 2014, I found myself missing the routine and work atmosphere of the dental field, and I have enthusiastically accepted the opportunity to join Dr. Baldwin and his team at King Street Family Dental.
Part-Time Dental Assistant
Debbie joined our team as a part time Dental Assistant in 2018. We appreciate her happy disposition and vast dental experience that she brings to our team. Debbie has over 10 years of Dental Assisting experience working with various Dentists over the years. Debbie grew up in Hudson, near Sioux Lookout. Debbie has 3 children who keep her busy. When she is not working, usually you can find her with at least one of her children doing some activity together. She loves the north and embraces the challenges that living in a smaller community brings.
After living in Dryden most of my life, I left “the nest” and ventured off to college for four years. Upon graduation from the American Sign Language Interpreter program, I received my dream job with the Keewatin-Patricia District School Board. I interpreted for many years with the school board and had the privilege of creating a lifelong relationship with a student I was interpreting for.
With her graduation came a change in careers for me. From there I gained experience in several different settings, varying from the hospital and hearing centre to furniture sales. With the career change, I met and married my best friend. Soon after, we started our beautiful, little family. Finding the passion to help people led me to King Street Family Dental, where I am a non-certified dental assistant.
When not at work, you will find me enjoying the lake on our boat with the family or being creative, scrapbooking or redecorating the house.
