About Our Doctors
Dr. Kerry Flintoff - Certified Specialist in Orthodontics
A native of British Columbia, Dr. Flintoff completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology and Immunology at UBC. After working in the biotechnology industry for two years, she returned to school to pursue dentistry at the prestigious McGill university in Montreal, where she graduated with the gold medal for placing first overall in the four year program. Dr. Flintoff then completed a one year multidisciplinary residency at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal before continuing on to complete her Masters in Orthodontics at the University of Toronto.
Following the completion of her studies, Dr. Flintoff taught in the undergraduate orthodontic clinic at McGill University, associated in orthodontic practices in Montreal/Gatineau, and provided dental care in Northern Ontario's remote First Nations communities before moving back to British Columbia.
Dr. Flintoff has successfully completed the exams required to become a fellow of the Royal College of Dentistry (F.R.C.D.(C) and is a member of both the Canadian Association of Orthodontists (C.A.O.) and the American Association of Orthodontics (A.A.O.). Dr. Flintoff is enthusiastic about continuing education and regularly attends courses to hone her craft. She is particularly excited about incorporating recent advancements in Invisalign and accelerated orthodontics in her practice.
When she's not at the office, Dr. Flintoff enjoys spending time on her yoga mat, cooking, and adventuring in the beautiful B.C. outdoors. Dr. Flintoff and her husband Himo couldn't be more thrilled to be a part of the vibrant community of Kamloops!
Dr. Alison Stefanuto - Certified Specialist in Orthodontics
Dr. Stefanuto grew up in Ontario and also studied there, attending the University of Western Ontario for her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree and graduated with the gold medal as the top scholar in her class. After completing a year of residency at the London Health Sciences Centre focused primarily on oral and maxillofacial surgery, Dr. Stefanuto joined a family dentistry practice. Over time her love for orthodontics grew, and she decided to return to her studies. Dr. Stefanuto was accepted into the highly competitive 3-year Master of Clinical Dentistry program at the University of Western Ontario and has been wholeheartedly enjoying practicing orthodontics for the last 5 years in Atlantic Canada. However, the allure of the mountains precipitated her recent move to Western Canada. She has recently relocated to beautiful Kamloops with her husband (who is an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon), two young daughters, and Bernese Mountain Dog. When she is not working you can find her at various activities with her girls, or exploring the great outdoors in this amazing part of the country!
Dr. Stefanuto has successfully challenged the exams required to become a fellow of the Royal College of Dentistry (F.R.C.D.(C)) and is a member of both the Canadian Association of Orthodontics (C.A.O.) and the American Association of Orthodontics (A.A.O.).
Dr. Stefanuto has extensive experience working with Invisalign and conventional braces in addition to the most complex surgical orthodontic cases. She has worked with patients age 4 to 74, patients who have never seen an orthodontist, and those who would like to make changes for a second time. She can address concerns regarding growth and development of the jaws, teeth, and bite, and help patients with a broad range of dental needs achieve comfort and happiness with their smile and function of their teeth.
