Meet Dr. Michelle Kosmowski
Being a part of someone’s orthodontic journey is a dream come true and a position not taken lightly at Shoreline Orthodontics. My own personal orthodontic journey was both fascinating and inspiring and I wish to be able to impart the same experience to the patients here. It is truly rewarding to help a patient achieve a healthy smile and grow with them during the process.
As someone who enjoys the process of fitting teeth and jaws together to create an optimal bite and beautiful smile, I look forward to getting to know you as a patient and helping you understand the amazing process that is occurring in your mouth with braces or Invisalign!
My goal as your orthodontist is to provide you with efficient and gentle care. I will work with your specific wants and needs to build a unique treatment plan that will get you to your ideal smile and bite.
About Dr. Michelle Kosmowski
Burlington, OntarioBorn and raised in Burlington, Ontario – I enjoyed rollerblading by the lake and spending summers camping with my family off Lake Huron at Sauble Beach.
University of Western OntarioI completed my undergraduate degree in Chemistry (2003), making the most of study time with a great group of study buddies that are still friends today. I didn’t know at the time that I was rooming with my future sister-in-law. I loved the school spirit Western students exuded. It encouraged me to get involved with the Orientation-Welcoming program they offer during my years at the school. I enjoyed my experience at Western so much, I was ecstatic to receive my Orthodontic training in London. It turned out to be the greatest 3 years of my life. Only made sweeter by marrying my wonderful husband Bart, and having our first daughter Kennedy during this time!
University of British ColumbiaMy dream started to come true when I attended UBC to become a dentist (2012). I made the most of my time outdoors in beautiful BC studying at Kits Beach, hiking the Chief, biking the Seawall, and skiing at Whistler.
Royal College of Dentists of CanadaUpon completion of my Masters in Orthodontics (2017), I also successfully challenged the Canadian National Specialty Exam to become a Fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada.
ShorelineWhen I met Dr Helpard, I knew he would be an amazing mentor and wonderful person to work with. Seeing the care with which he treats his patients was something I wanted to emulate. Our family could not be happier about the opportunity to join the Shoreline team. We are excited to plant our roots in Comox Valley, and getting to know the community here!
