After practicing orthodontics for almost 40 years, it is with mixed emotions that I am formally announcing my retirement. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued confidence over the years. I have sincerely enjoyed treating you, your friends and your loved ones.
After a long and careful search, I have found the perfect orthodontist to take over my practice. As many of you already know, Dr. Monica Dosanjh has been working as my full-time associate orthodontist for the last 2 years. It only made sense that she take over given how much patients love her and appreciate her quality of work. It gives me a great sense of relief to know that our patients are in excellent hands.
For those of you who are unaware of Dr. Dosanjh’s many accomplishments, allow me this opportunity to formally introduce her. Dr. Dosanjh graduated dental school at the top of her class in 2007 and with many distinctions. To name a few, she received the American Association of Orthodontics Award, along with the most prestigious Omicron Kappa Upsilon Award given to recipients who demonstrate technical excellence and exemplary traits in character throughout the 4 years of dental school. After receiving her Doctorate of Dental Medicine, she worked in Whitehorse and Yellowknife as a general dentist. This is where she treated a high volume of otherwise neglected patients and learned how to effectively manage time, diagnose, treat and connect with her patients. She is a strong clinician. This is now apparent in her orthodontic treatment planning and patient management.
Following one year as a dentist, she was accepted into one of the most reputable program for orthodontics in the world: University of Connecticut. Dr. Charles Burstone, the legend in biomechanics of orthodontics who massively contributed to the body of orthodontic literature, taught Dr. Dosanjh directly. Her clinical skills in biomechanics, mean that patients have less side effects during treatment, which means their orthodontic treatment time is reduced significantly. She was also part of the craniofacial team at Yale University, where she treated syndromic and cleft-lip-and-palate patients for several years.
Two years ago, Dr. Dosanjh moved to Montreal, and I was fortunate to hire her as an associate. I have seen how she cares for our patients, how people respond to her and how she tries to achieve the best results in occlusion, esthetics and canine guidance.
It is my great pleasure to recommend Dr. Dosanjh who will continue the legacy of excellence at Beaconsfield Orthodontic Clinic. Thank you again for your many years of confidence.
Dr. Ross Jenne
