Dr. Monika Deutsch
Monika was born and raised in Wrocław, Poland. Her family moved to Canada in 1990 settling in Regina, SK. She spent 3 years working on a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry at the University of Regina (where she met her husband Rob). Being admitted early, she transferred in 1996 to the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon to begin the 5-year Dentistry program. In the final year of her DMD she took a one-month volunteer practicum in Mexico City. Experiencing the desperate need for oral health in one of the world’s poorest cities helped focus her intent on patient care. She met this same need for the 5 years following her graduation in 2001, in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. It was in P.A. that she honed her skills in both oral surgery and chairside-manner, becoming known as the “gentle dentist”.
Returning to Regina in 2006 to be near family, she joined Capital Corner Dental, where in 2007 she gave birth to a set of beautiful twins, Spencer and Natalia. The allure of a mountain lifestyle and slower pace of life, however, kept creeping into her consciousness. After falling in love with the alpine town of Kimberley in her first year of university, she had been visiting the area every year since. It was during those two decades that the call of the mountains beckoned. The East Kootenays became the focus of her dreams, which finally came true when she was given the opportunity to join Dr. Dave Burwash at Baker Hill Dental in Cranbrook.
Dave and his entire office have the same philosophy of practice as Monika. They are focused on true patient-care (what is best for their patients based on their individual case, needs, and situation). This is paramount in the way that Monika approaches the profession of dentistry. The friendly and hard-working people at Baker Hill Dental reflect that vision, and allow her to treat her patients with care and compassion. It is icing on the cake that she is able to do this for the wonderful people of the Cranbrook area that have welcomed her with open arms.
Monika, with that same spirit, welcomes new and returning patients looking for quality oral health treatment.
