Dr. Lori Derkach

A native of Leamington, Ontario, Dr. Lori attended the University of Western Ontario on scholarship completing her Bachelors of Science Degree in Physiology. She went on to the University of Toronto where she received her Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree. Dr. Lori loves to educate her patients about ways to improve and maintain their oral health and prefers to use orthodontics to enhance patients’ smiles as a non-invasive alternative to crowns and veneers.

Dr. Lori embraces an integrative approach to dental health—combining modern dental techniques with complementary healthy lifestyle choices to create a balanced approach to maintaining dental health as well as overall health. With minimally invasive techniques, the use of lasers where appropriate and preventive treatments both in office and at home, Dr. Lori’s goal is to create optimal dental health for her patients with the most conservative treatment.

With a creative side and artistic flair, Dr. Lori enjoys decorating – both in the home and in nature. She enjoys taking courses in acrylic painting as well as artistic photography techniques and is proud to have designed the interior decor at Dentistry 390. Along with her passion for preventative dentistry, Dr. Lori tries to maintain a healthy lifestyle through yoga, organic gardening and playing with her two dogs, Benson and Abigail.
