We are in a time when patients are welcomed advocates for their own care. Dr. Kindal Robertson is a dentist who believes in patient education as a complement to compassionate, personalized care. He treats patients like he does his own siblings, providing holistic care to promote health for the whole body, not just the teeth and gums. Dr. Robertson finds immense peace in doing what is best in each situation.
Dr. Robertson believes “A proactive approach to wellness may not be any harder than changing one element of our lifestyle such as caring for oral health and supporting health before the symptoms compound.”
Dr. Kindal Robertson grew up as the middle child out of seven children right here in Calgary. He received both a Bachelor’s and a Master’s of Science in Biochemistry from the University of Calgary, and graduated from the University of Alberta with his doctorate in dentistry in 2008. To this day, Dr. Robertson has continued his own learning process, completing training programs on an ongoing basis. He has a special interest in understanding the relationship between oral health, dental care, and general health. These interests have lead him to be a member of the IAOMT and to be SMART certified. He currently sits as the Chair of the Science Committee of the IAOMT.
Dr. Robertson and his wife Treena have eight young children. The family maintains an active lifestyle that includes soccer, basketball, biking, dance, skiing, piano, and various other activities that the children love. You may have once found Kindal in a kayak or in the Backcountry in a tent in solitude, but now you are more likely to see him crammed into a bulging tent surrounded by his children.
