Dr. Alicja Grzegorczyk (ah-LEETS-yah g’zheh-GORE-chick) graduated in 2001 from the Medical University of Gdansk, Faculty of Dentistry, Poland. After moving to Canada she obtained her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Western Ontario in 2012. Upon graduation, she completed a 1-year internship program in general dentistry. In 2002, she was appointed as an assistant professor at the Medical University of Gdansk, in the Department of Pediatric Dentistry. As a faculty member she was responsible for teaching pediatric dentistry to the dental and dental hygiene students, supervising their clinical work, and delivering lectures on selected topics. On top of this, she provided ongoing clinical dental care to the patients, and participated in research activities of the Department.
Throughout her professional career, she volunteered at Dental Fairs, bringing dental awareness to underserved populations. She also participated twice in the DENFAC – a “teach the teacher” educational project of the International Association of Paediatric Dentistry – designed for less wealthy nations requiring assistance to advance pediatric dentistry teaching in their countries. Dr. Alicja’s many years of experience working in the academic setting providing a referral center for the most difficult dental cases, makes her capable of dealing with complex clinical problems of pediatric patients. By creating feelings of ease, confidence in her abilities, and extensive training to provide gentle care, she is capable of relieving anxiety and fear of dental procedures for patients of all ages. An early fascination with dental works of internationally recognized cosmetic dentists, and her move to Canada which exposed her to social trends of staying young longer, amplified her desire to focus on dental procedures that would fulfill esthetic needs of her patients.
Her precision, attentiveness to color, understanding of beauty principles, and incorporating art and science elements into dentistry enable her to bring dental works to life. In 2013, she created AG dentistry – an ultra-modern, friendly and relaxing dental studio, staying up with the latest trends in dentistry. Currently, she practices all scopes of dentistry with a special interest in pediatric and cosmetic dentistry.
