A Personal Message From Dr. Justin Pratt

Along with my cheerful and supportive team, I am dedicated to offering you and your family genuinely heartfelt family-focused care.

Why I Chose Dentistry

Having grown up in Kirkland Lake it was an obvious choice for me to come home to practice after earning my degree from Western University in London. I’ve always wanted to work in the health field and love dentistry because of the flexibility of choice it provides. There are so many options available to us while we work together to help you attain optimal oral health with a confident smile.

Practice Philosophy

Because I take such pleasure from making people smile, I know that my first job as a Kirkland Lake dentist is to fully understand your needs and wishes so I can help you find solutions that fit your budget. After all – we live in a small community – I want to know that I’m giving you everything you want and need for your dental needs, so when I see you while out and about, your smile is genuine and authentic.

Personal Time

When I’m not working with my family of patients, I love spending time with my own family. My wonderful wife Naomi is originally from Sarnia and loves Kirkland Lake as much as I do. She is a teacher who is currently a stay-at-home mom for our five children. We all love spending time boating on the lake, and when I do have downtime, enjoy spending it with a good book.

Why I Chose Dentistry

Improving one’s appearance improves their quality of life. Improving one’s mouth function alleviates pain and discomfort and improves nutrition. I chose dentistry because both are primary aspects of dental care. Oral health plays a key role in overall health – both mentally and physically – and I’m honoured to have found a profession that addresses both.

Practice Philosophy

My healthcare philosophy is to provide the best evidence-based care using the most recent and up-to-date techniques while focusing on a patient-centred approach that is tailored specifically to each individual’s needs and wants. My main focus is to help my patients achieve their oral health goals in a friendly and professional manner which raises my patients’ self-confidence. And that is truly gratifying. I also enjoy alleviating people’s anxieties about going to the dentist by ensuring they’re comfortable in our caring environment.

Personal Time

While studying at McMaster University in Hamilton and at the University of Toronto, I knew I wanted to practice in a smaller community and Kirkland Lake fit the bill – small, friendly, and it allows me to provide care to a wide demographic. And of course, our surrounding nature provides many opportunities for outdoor activities like exploring nature, hiking, biking, rollerblading, and travelling. In my spare time at home, I like to cook and try new foods and listen to music or watch a movie.

Why I Chose Dentistry

Ever since I was a child, I have loved both art and science, and dentistry is the perfect blend of the two. I attended the University of Toronto and there earned my Bachelor of Science, my Master of Science, and my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. While I liked the big-city life, I’m really enjoying being in Kirkland Lake, a vibrant community where the people are extremely friendly and welcoming … and we’re surrounded by nature.

Practice Philosophy

Providing patient-centred care is very important to me, and my mission is to ensure your dental treatments best fit your needs and wants while ensuring your teeth function well with esthetic beauty. While I enjoy all aspects of being a dentist, my favourite part is being able to restore my patients’ teeth to give them back the smile that they once had. Seeing a patient smile with relief and excitement is the very best gift.

Personal Time

I have a Border Collie named Alex, and while she loves baked goods, she also loves being outside with me. Together we enjoy spending time in nature, hiking, and travelling. Alex often comes with me on my photography jaunts, including when I shoot cityscapes. I also like to ski and watch movies.
