Alexa Lam, D.D.S, D.M.D, HBSc.

Dr. Lam’s care for his patients’ overall well-being always comes first, being passionate about dentistry is just the tip of the iceberg. He enjoys all aspects of dentistry, especially restorations (fillings) because they are the culmination of art, science and dentistry. He believes that challenging procedures such as oral surgery and root canal treatments are what test the true mettle of a dentist – and he never shies away from a challenge!

Getting to know the residents of Kingston and meeting the dental needs of this great historic city has been one of the most rewarding aspects of his job.

David Cho, B.Dent.Sc.

Known as “The gentle dentist” amongst his patients, Dr. Cho always puts the needs of his patients first. He prefers to educate and advise them on all potential treatment options so they can make an informed decision. Ultimately, the patient is in complete control.

Dr. Cho is passionate about oral surgery because he likes to take away any feelings of discomfort that his patients might be experiencing due to wisdom teeth, a missing tooth, etc. Dr. Cho also enjoys cosmetic dentistry because he believes a smile should never be hidden. If he can restore his patients’ self-confidence, that is very rewarding to him. Prosthodontics are a key aspect of reconstructive dentistry and require a keen eye for detail and unwavering perfectionism, both of which Dr. Cho has!

He is very team-oriented and enjoys the family-type environment at Dawson.

He speaks English, French and Korean.
